We probably should have stayed in a different hotel just because the Grand B is such an elegant hotel. We felt underdressed 99.9% of the time. We were there for a football game (Go Badgers!) and we didn't exactly bring our Sunday Best. The staff was very accomodating and no snobbiness was percieved, I just wasn't expecting a dress code for the restaurant. We ate breakfast there the day of the game and the staff could not have been nicer! They sat the Arkansas fans on one side of the restaurant and the Wisconsin fans on the other! What a riot!!
Very secure hotel, key cards were required to use the elevators and paper wrist bands were required New Year's Eve to also use the elelvator. The pool was on the 6th floor and was just beautiful. There were several areas for lounging on these padded Chaise (Sp??) lounge chairs in or out of the sun. The covered area reminded me of an Arabian tent with fabric and chandeliers..just so pretty. Rooms were clean, linens/towels were crisp and clean and very inviting.
The Grand B is right in downtown Orlando and is very close, walking distance, to some really nice restaurants and drinking establishments, which was nice...no driving required! We recommend "Kress Chophouse" awesome food/drinks!
The only complaint I have is that there is manditory valet...$22.00 a night. I think that parking should be included with your stay. That did not include gratuity for everytime you used your car. I am not a penny pincher but that seemed odd to me? It just seemed like such an elegant hotel should just put that in with everything else in the price of the stay. There were many amenities that we just did not get a chance to enjoy, like the spa. But the rooms were quiet, comfortable and intimate, even on New Year's!
This place would be great for intimate weekend getaway, or honeymoon. It's pretty close to all the major attractions without being Disney-a-fied.
