We stayed at the Grand for one night, 1/20 and were rather disappointed. The room itself was OK, but the pillows on the bed were simply awful/.While the bed was comfortable, there was a gap between the end of the bed and the headboard, and the pillows kept falling down into that space (we were unable to move the mattress to address this problem)
The hotel touted its wine tasting as providing unique wines from around the world. They offered two wines, a chardonnay and a cab sauv, and neither was very good. I honestly felt duped because the hotel advertised its wine tasting so heavily both online and on a card left in the room.
The staff was courteous, but the overall experience was underwhelming, especially when compared against other stays we have had at 601 Graves or the W.
A quick word about the restaurant, avoid it. Overpriced, poor service, and the food was subpar.
