Located on the downtown square, where it's surrounded by restaurants and shops just feet away, this gem of a boutique, historic hotel is well worth the price. Rick's steakhouse, located inside the hotel, offers great steaks (try the tenderloin appetizer, 4 ounces of goodness) and seafood (the sea bass is amazing). Spoon, across the street, is overrated, but Sauce (down... More

I make a point of only staying at the Best hotels. I've been to Texas twice while in the Dallas area on business. It is Very Nice. It is a historic building, which is another way of saying an old building that has had a face lift. The beds were Super comfortable and the bathrooms were high-end. The rooms Do... More

We recently stayed at The Grand for a family wedding. The front desk staff was amazing. Very few issues came up; but those were resolved easily at the front desk. The hotel is quaint, and located just off the adorable square in downtown McKinney. Once parked, you can easily walk to various shops and restaurants on the square. Do be... More

Stayed here this past weekend for a wedding. Beds are great, hotel staff couldn't be more accommodating , and a perfect location. Nice restaurants, bars and shops right downtown. If u want to have a nice weekend away, not touch the car and listen to some bands this is your perfect base.

The Grand is just that ."Grand" in every respect , in a really alive down town of McKinney Texas, no wonder they were picked number two best places to live in America by Money Magazine. Quaint cafes and a variety of shops to enjoy.

For the second year in a row, we spent our anniversary at the Grand Hotel as we love McKinney. Also, for the second year in a row, we did not get the type of room for which we had a confirmation. We had both times requested a window. The first visit we got a room with no window, but a... More

This quaint hotel is located in an historic building that has been tastefully restored to grand opulence with wonderful antique furniture to adorn each room. The staff is extremely friendly and goes out of their way to accommodate guests and make them feel at home, not unlike a fine bed and breakfast inn. From this location its a one block... More

This is an older hotel right tucked half a block off of the main square in McKinney. The square is a very nicely preserved town square with a lot of nightlife nearby and plenty of dining options that are all above average dining spots. So, the bed was comfortable, the room was nice, but nothing stood out about it except... More

What a true gem! The Grand Hotel is located on the historic square in downtown McKinney. Rooms are all beautifully decorated with mansion beds that are of the utmost comfort. A lot of weddings held here so you might want to ask for a room away from the ballroom. There are pubs and restaurants all just steps away that offer... More
