I stayed at the Grand Hotel for four nights. It is greatly located near downtown Toronto. It is only a few minutes walk from the Eaton Center. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very diversified but some morning it was hard to get a table since the restaurant is quite small. The rooms are big and clean. We had a wonderful view of the city.
It was a great stay overall, I would definitely go back.

We stayed here as a couple for 3 nights. The room was lovely but slightly smaller than expected but had a little sofa and tv area. The bathroom was a little small but very nice, marble (or marble effect). The outstanding features for us were the underground pool and the rooftop terrace areas with jacuzzi. The views really were amazing! We ate at the hotel restaurant which we were also really pleased with.

My family stayed here last week and really enjoyed it. We had a great view of Toronto, nice roof top views as well. Our room was very nice and the second TV was a nice touch for our daughter. The staff was professional and accommodating. Enjoyed several conversations with valet, door men, waitresses, hotel clerks and even housekeeping. All were professional, friendly and accommodating. Our room was always made up, no matter how late we left the room, lol. The free breakfast was a great treat. I only have one tiny complaint. There is a cable station that comes on late at night that shows adult movies, very adult movies. My daughter caught an eye full while scrolling through channels one night. I assumed adult stations to be blocked or you had to pay extra. It was a surprise for all of us.

Room Tip: Hotel in a transitioning neighborhood. Walking distance to Toronto Easton Centre and downtown stores...

I booked this hotel because I got tired of my "favorite" Toronto hotels escalating in price. The Grand is three or four blocks east of Eaton Center and to a local that's like the end of the world. O.k., I know it isn't in Yorkville but it could be with all the services it provides. This is a hotel that has an excellent suite layout with an operable kitchen, separate living and bedroom area and a decent bathroom. It has a well appointed gym, a rooftop sun/hot tub area with great views, a full hot breakfast in a very pretty room or garden area, a business center and drivers that will take you to the local airport or to other areas of town as a complimentary service. The food at breakfast is ample and varied. The lunch and dinner menus are inventive with outstanding preparation and presentation at prices that are more modest compared to some of the Toronto restaurants.
I have stayed at several higher priced Toronto hotels and this one tries harder and gives more for the dollar than many others.

Room Tip: Talk to the front desk. I stayed on the north side and was fine. Next visit I will request the south...

Dear LeahPhiladelphia_PA,
We appreciate your wonderful review that you recently posted on Trip Advisor for many readers to check out! As you put it, "This one tries harder and gives more for the dollar than many others," and we are grateful to provide you with everything you need and more. Our proximity to the Eaton Centre allows our guests to enter the heart of Toronto's shopping without any hassle, and the endless number of restaurants in the area make sure that our guests will never go hungry. On that note of food, we are proud to serve a gourmet breakfast buffet to all our guests every morning, as well as many impeccable choices for lunch and dinner.

Also, with the gorgeous weather as of late, we are exhilarated that you were able to take advantage of the incredible views from our rooftop, and poke your foot into the hot tubs. Hopefully the weather can stay great, and we hope to welcome you back soon!
Warmly,
Greg Egglesfield

I stayed at The Grand for 4 nights while doing business in Toronto. Some of the other higher end hotels were out of my price range so, on price and location, went with The Grand. First of all, the location is great. You can walk to St. Lawrence Market and all of the great restaurants an
D bars or you can hop on the Dundas Street car for $3 and be in the heart of China Town.
I was very pleased with the staff, breakfast and quality of rooms. Not a beat was missed service-wise from rooms being cleaned well, daily, to the front desk teams gracious service to the buffet breakfast (complimentary!) servers. The city views from the roof top hot tubs were amazing!
Is the hotel The Four Seasons? No. But this hotel exemplified fine hospitality in an easygoing, unstuffy way and I hope to return here the next time business (or pleasure) takes me back to Toronto.

Room Tip: I was on the 18th floor and the views were awesome both day and night.

Dear Slaphappy,
Thank you for taking the time to post on Trip Advisor so others could see! We are glad that we were able to accommodate your business, luxury, and financial needs to a tee! Just located two blocks east of the Eaton Centre, The Grand offers an immediate access to the heart of Toronto shopping and fine cuisine, and as you stated, for just a $3 fee ($6 round trip) the TTC can bring you to many different neighbourhoods in a moment's notice. Also, we are extremely pleased that you were able to make your way to the rooftop and relax in the hot tubs with a scenic view of the GTA.

Once again, we are overjoyed to have been able to provide you with our amazing amenities including our buffet breakfast, and our great staff, whom are always willing to make your stay perfect. We hope to see you soon, and provide another magnificent stay in the near future!
Warmly,
Greg Egglesfield

Our daughter was recently married in Toronto and we chose the Grand for our stay due the proximity to the venue. We also had several family and friends stay as well. From the moment you walked in you were aware it would be a great stay. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and fast. The rooms were excellent, clean and provided everything you would need for a weekend stay or longer. On Sunday we all met for breakfast and had a wonderful meal and a great visit on the lovely side patio. What a way to end a great occasion.

Room Tip: We just had the standard room and ours was a corner unit which was larger then our daughter,s room...

I have stayed in the regular suite, one of the 2 level suites and also in one of the suites with the balcony area. The hotel was staffed by courteous, thoughtful employees. The breakfast buffet offers extensive options - perhaps the best breakfast offered as part of the room fees in the city. Bring a swim suit. The hot tub on the roof is so lovely that it is easy to overlook the inviting pool area. We enjoyed room service on the roof deck. I love the sushi and the burger was delicious. It is a relatively seedy area but there are really no worries if you take a quick taxi downtown.
