“Hidden Secret on the Roof!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Loved this hotel. Me and 3 girlfriends stayed here for 3 days and came across the roof top hot tub equipped with an extremely large screen projecting MTV on the roof! That was by far the best part.
The room was a bit tiny, but not bad. The location was nice a close to shopping/mall, just where we wanted to be.

When we checked in they upgraded our room to a one bedroom suite with a balcony. We were very impressed with the room. The bed was so comfortable, I wished I could've taken the pillows home with me. Very clean and the housekeeping ladies were way above average, always around and made sure that you had everything you needed and actually took pride in their job! The pool was huge and never very too busy, the fitness centre was better then the YMCA in my hometown. If you like hot tubbing, the roof-top is the place for you. Although it can get busy it is worth it. The view of the city at night is breathtaking.
The buffet breakfast included had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns,french toast, fresh fruit salad a huge selection of cold cereals, breads,bagels, jams, pasteries, 4 different fruit juices, coffee and tea. (that I can remember).
We loved it here so much that we stayed an extra night. I wished it could have been longer.
I did forget to tell the maintence manager that one of the dining room chair backs was loose.
We stayed in room 209 which had a nice full kitchen, dining room and very large private balcony.

Stayed at The Grand Hotel in Toronto Saturday night. Upon checkin the lounge was dirty, the restaurant was filthy and the elevator floors were littered with bits of debris. The room was disappointing. The floors had not been mopped let alone swept, there were smooshed spiders on the ceiling that were not cleaned off, the hand towels in the bathroom had a few pubic looking hairs on them and a very lumpy bed. Overall, not a clean hotel at all. Service was below average. They have a rooftop that is made to sound like a happening place with a view. Not well lit, no bar, and there were only couples up there in robes for the hot tub that all have their own liquor bottles everywhere. The breakfast was complimentary but totally self serve. We were sat and upon returning to our table with the food, our table was taken by a new couple!! Not a good meal. For $199 a night, we could have stayed at the Hilton, Sheraton etc for a much better experience. Extremely disappointing.

Room Tip: If you stay, be sure to speak up about the cleanliness or have your room price adjusted. To pay $19...

Stayed here for one night in town for the Springsteen concert. Wouldn't have been our first choice but not many options as city was full with various events.

Our room was $249 and included a buffet breakfast for 2. Hotel was top notch. Spacious, clean rooms with wet bar and good sized fridge. King sized bed was very comfortable.

We loved the pool area and rooftop lounge with jacuzzi's. Very nice touch.

Would recommend to anyone and would come back in a heartbeat. Staff were excellent to deal with. Excellent buffet breakfast as well ($15.00-$20.00 value).

We stayed at The Grand last weekend. We had two adjoining rooms and although a little smaller than they looked on the website, the rooms worked out well. We put our 2 small kids on the pull out couch, which they thought was cool. They had their own television to watch too. Our friends were in the other room with a baby and had ample space to wash bottles in the little kitchenette too. The pool was great...the rooftop view was awesome. Wish we had more time to enjoy the hotel. The complimentary hot breakfast was decent and made us feel like we got a little something extra for our money. Parking was convenient and comparable in price to other hotels in a big city. Clean, nice staff, close walk to the Eaton Centre-- overall a nice place.

We had not had an opportunity to stay at the Grand in a couple of years, and were happy to find that it is every bit as lovely as it was on our last stay. It is without a doubt the only hotel we would stay at in Toronto. The service is wonderful, and the rooms are clean and quiet. We were celebrating an anniversary, and were delighted to find a gift basket from the hotel, greeting us upon our arrival in our room - a very thoughtful gesture.

This was a terrific choice for a three day stay in Toronto. The staff is gracious and knowledgable. The room was spacious and immaculate and had the most comfortable bed and pillows. But the rooftop hot tubs and viewing area had a spectacular view of the city.
It is conveniently located near the downtown area and has a shuttle that will take you there.

The breakfast buffet has something for everyone, from yogurt to fresh fruit to cereals and eggs, all served in a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: Always ask for a city side view, the windows seem endless
