York must be experienced to be believed. Eminently civilized, and fairy-tale special in its charm, you can see why no one has torn down the centuries-old buildings to replace them with anything new. Each generation has built new edifices carefully outside the limits of the "old city." The Grange is one of those "new" buildings - not new to us, dating from early in the 20th century, I would guess, and composed of large, spacious, comfortable rooms with updated bathrooms and two top-notch restaurants. There was a lovely and welcoming coal fire in the parlor the night we checked in. It is about a 15-minute walk from the hotel to the Minster, which was not a problem for us as we had excellent weather for the three nights we were there, but might be a concern for some in the winter months.
