We stayed here while visiting Kenyon college- a quick ten minute ride away. We had the king suite which was a sitting room and separate bedroom where we easily fit a rollaway. The suite was clean, comfortable and well appointed including a couple of complimentary waters, robes, and slippers. The bath products were aveda. The linens laundered in a fresh scent- not the sterile generic hotel detergent. Breakfast was also complimentary good and there were a lot of individual servings of foods which included bread items, cereal, eggs, ham and biscuits and gravy. The coffee was tasty! Most importantly- the staff was friendly and attentive. It’s been a long time since we had excellent service so this was especially appreciated!
This is a lovely boutique hotel in the heart of Mount Vernon square. It has ample parking right next to the hotel. The room was large and nicely decorated. The shower was HUGE and had a nice waterfall type shower head which was so nice! Breakfast was included - standard hotel type - but a nice option in this type of hotel. Highly recommend!
While very nice on the surface, the night was horrible. They control the heating centrally. Thermostat on the wall allows no temp or fan speed control. I called front desk and entire system was shut off. Windows don't open, so I went to front desk. Clerk claimed no access but phoned maintenance manager, who turned it back on, came knocking on my door, then in condescending manner showed using Thermostat. However it in fact controls nothing. I was part of a group who experienced the same. They are controlling hvac and being dishonest about it. Breakfast would be appropriate for a low class motel, with manufactured cheese omlette, greasy sausage, a banana left over from the Vietnam War, small, dry seedy oranges, ...
Wonderful stay! Impeccably clean! Gorgeous historic ambiance. Excellent location in the center of historic district. Wonderful walk. Parking is included. Great service, friendly staff. Internet is great. Good breakfast. Heavenly beds. Very comfortable.
Son graduating from Kenyon, so options limited if you don't want to drive in from Columbus. This is a very good establishment for the area. To their credit the staff was very nice and the lobby and building is quiet. To get a room we went through their "lottery" almost a year in advance which requires a guaranteed payment. Shocked at the price-2 nights before graduation was $300, and the night before and of graduation $500/night for the standard room with 2 beds. I fully appreciate that a business wishes to take advantage of events and recover from COVID, but that seems a bit dear. Unfortunately, on the first night the A/C was broken which led to a poor nights sleep, but they did give a credit for that inconvenience without my asking on the final folio. Our room was the back of the building-an ugly view but quiet. The front looks out onto a small park area surrounded by a roundabout. Pleasant, but as there are a fair number of motorcyclists in the area with the classic Harley exhaust, you will have to decide if it's worth it. Breakfast was a standard buffet that you will find in many hotels. Nicely done, but nothing brilliant. I would say that the hotel seemed so quiet that you may be able to get a room at the busy season and not try to reserve as we did.…
While exiting the parking lot at the hotel, my car was struck by the hotel’s iron gate that swung shut and hit my passenger door. It left a huge dent in my new trailblazer. After informing the hotel, they “did an investigation “ and denied my claim saying there were no prior issues with the gate. They also had it serviced the following day after this incident!! They also said there was no matching paint transfer on their swinging gate! I have never dealt with such a shady company.
The hotel was average but clean. Beds are decent. We were in town to visit friends. We came back late and were a little surprised to see a homeless person sleeping in the doorway. Really not what you expect for $200 a night. Unfortunately there aren't that many decent places to stay in MV.
We were back in town for my brothers funeral. The staff were so accommodating and even allowed us to utilize their breakfast area for a pizza dinner with the local family members. The room was clean, warm, spacious and comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel.
This hotel has great service, is clean, and beautiful! It is my new favorite. A room facing the town square is best for a lovely view. It was extremely clean, quiet and comfortable. I slept so well. And the breakfast was very impressive!! I loved it!!
We found out we needed to be in Mount Vernon quite late and only had a day to make reservations. All other decent motels were sold out due to a local sporting event. The Grand Hotel had two rooms left. Other than a bit more costly we really enjoyed our time at the Grand. The Grand sits directly on the city center, a traffic circle with banks, a hospital, county government buildings, a lot of cute little shops, some eating places, elements of a downtown university. The area seemed very safe. There is a generous parking lost next to the hotel for your use. The hotel itself is beautiful. I could not decide if it had been completely gutted and renovated or was built new. It had elements of older style architecture and style, but felt new. The room was not overly large for two queen beds, but it was adequate. The heating/cooling was wonderful. It was a central system and not an individual unit in the wall. I have found central systems to be less drafty. The room was very clean and well equipped. The only negative in this regard was the tile in the bathroom and sink area. The design made it "look" dirty when it was not. This is not a reason to avoid the Grand, just a design decision that I feel should have been different. The breakfast was very nice. There were three hot foods--eggs, French toast, and a meat. The second morning there were potatoes instead of the French toast. Also available were cold cereal, packs of oatmeal to make up, yogurt, three kinds of juices, a selection of breads, bagels, muffins. Hot drinks and Almond milk are also available. Very nice breakfast compared to what some motels offer for breakfast these days. I would recommend the Grand Hotel. It is a bit more expensive, but you get a step up in quality.…
