We stayed here one weekend to celebrate a birthday and a new job, and found the Grand Hotel to be absolutely top notch. Booking through the Kimpton website allowed us to take advantage of a great price on rooms over the weekend. When we checked in the staff was friendly and welcoming, told us how to find the gym and mentioned the free wine happy hour later that day. I had mentioned on our reservation that we were celebrating, and shortly after check-in a complimentary bottle of champagne was delivered to our room!
The room was well-appointed, with a soaking tub as well as a shower, and the bed was heavenly and soft. The TV had HBO and other premium channels, and the gym in the basement was a full-sized gym with a sauna, steam room, pool, and racquetball courts, plus the usual weights and machines. The one time we called down to the front desk (for more towels), our request was attended to immediately. Since it was the weekend we were able to park in a nearby ramp for only $5/day, and in-room wifi was free (evidently a rarity among luxury hotels).
Everyone on staff was wonderful and went above and beyond to make our stay special. We will definitely be back.
