We have been travelling to Maine at least once a year over the past number of years. Since this hotel just opened last summer, we did not have the pleasure of staying here before. We are so glad we decided to make a reservation at the Grand in Kennebunk. The location alone makes it well worth the stay. You can literally park your car upon arrival and from there walk to a myriad of shops, restaurants, etc. in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Couldn't ask for a better location, what a pleasure. The hotel itself, being recently built, is, simply stated, grand. The room we had was very large with all the immenties you'd expect in a fine hotel. The bathroom is also large and comes with heated floors, which was really nice during our stay in January. It included a very large shower and a great vanity. No bathtub thou, but for us that was not a problem as we are shower people. "Kitchen Chicks", which is a nice pastry and sandwich shop, is accessible thru the lobby of the hotel. This is a nice place for breakfast/brunch. Also, across the street is H.B. Provisions which not only serves a great breakfast but is stocked with anything and everything you may need, including a rather large wine selection, and they are open seven days a week, even during "off season". Enough can not be said about the staff at the Grand Hotel. They have redefined the words "helpful", "friendly", and "professional". Jennifer went out of her way to assist us in any way she could. She was very helpful in giving us information about the local area to include maps to our destination(s). She greeted us every day with a friendly greeting and smile. Jennifer made our stay at the Grand truly grand. We'll be back.
