Just back from a 4 night stay at this hotel. Don't be put off by the name, thinking it's all about acres of marble and snotty staff. It's not huge, more of a "boutique" hotel size I reckon. The Grand Palace is located in the old city of Riga, ideal for exploring on foot and quite close to the river if you fancy a boat trip. The decor etc is traditional but the welcome from the youngish staff is both warm, professional and multilingual. We ate in the restaurant, the bar, and on the outside terrace, and enjoyed all three. In June they feature a "strawberry menu" with some unusual and delicious combinations! The bar area seems to have been designed by someone with a thing for antlers - chandeliers, wall lights, all made from them!
