I was not looking forward to turning 50, so I decided to follow my heart's desire and stay near my favorite historical downtown spot; McKinney, Texas. I considered some of the bed and breakfasts, but since this hotel is located in the downtown area, I decided upon it. I was so impressed by our room, 401. It is the nicest room I have ever stayed in. I have been blessed with traveling to Europe and many nice places, but this room gets first prize. I believe it is the nicest room in the hotel. I did peak into one of the other rooms, and though it was much smaller, it was still furnished beautifully and the bathroom was absolutely outstanding. 401 has a sitting area with gorgeous furniture and a fireplace with a huge flatscreen tv mounted above it. It also has a nice table and artwork on the walls, as well as bookshelves with many books to look through. The bathroom was amazing, with a large furniture piece with granite and two sinks, and a nice sized shower with good water pressure and a huge tub that I wished I had had the time to enjoy! It also had robes in a huge closet. The bed was enormous and so comfortable! I so wanted to move in and never leave. It is adjacent to Rick's Chophouse, and there are many nice restaurants and shops along the square. For breakfast, Spoons is just a block away, and Snug is right around the corner. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Stay at the Grand Hotel, I highly recommend it!
