In January I stayed at Gran Hotel for the second time. It is a beautiful 1930 hotel and if you are into heritage buildings you will love this one. The price was very reasonable by Canadian and US standards...less than $100 for room and a delicious, large breakfast buffet. The buffet is in a ballroom with tables and chairs covered with white cloth, and with a view of the city plaza. There is a billiard room, small gym, spa, computer room, indoor and outdoor dining and a tour desk.
We ate supper there, my daughter and son-in-law sharing Surf and Turf for Two. It came on a huge platter and was unlike any Canadian or US Surf and Turf meal...they loved it. Last year I ordered a fruit bowl for dessert and it came as a half pineapple scooped out and filled with freshly cut fruits. Delicious.
This hotel is right next to the heritage Theatre and next to the Gold and Currency Museums. The museums are well worth a visit.
The only down side of this hotel would be its location if you don't like big city centres.
