“Not worth the price”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We checked in here for our weekend stay. We were on the 10th floor and it was sweltering! There was no thermostat to regulate the temperature at all and we could only open the window a couple inches. The room was also a tight squeeze and did allow you an area to lounge easily. It felt very tiny. Also the location of the hotel is less than desirable. We had to check out because we couldn't stand the heat and there was no room available for our entire 3 night stay (we would've had to move rooms the 3rd night). The bathroom was the best thing about the hotel. We ended up going to the Hampton 10 miles away and would highly recommend it!

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

We are very sorry your room was warm. Our building had a few rooms without thermostats, but a major HVAC project is underway to address that and the issue has been corrected in most of the units now, and will be complete for the remaining ones shortly. The rooms where this issue arose are those that were split off from suites that had extra space, for guests who wanted a smaller option at a lower price. Our suites, by contrast, are quite large, and all have a kitchen, living room and dining room, as well as a thermostat. We hope you will come back and try one of our suites, or try one of our smaller, more economical units again, with the new HVAC improvements in place.

We were touring Lafayette and came upon this hotel. Our room was huge with a wonderful view. We were looking for a 2 bedroom suite but they only had 3 bedroom suites left, so they gave us the 3 bedroom for the price we would have paid for a 2bedroom. Very convent two some wonderful restaurants. The only negative was the wi if was spotty and the tv didn't have many working channels.

We went to a party in downtown Easton and thought it better to stay the night rather than trying to drive home. Our event was a quick walk away. The staff all seemed quite friendly and our room definitely old hotel sized but with recent modern renovation. Very nice. It reminded me of a european hotel. The bed was far softer than I'm used to but I fell right asleep so I guess it worked just fine. Bathroom was also recently renovated and everything was sparkling clean. Parking was outside and just across a small quiet street. Breakfast was simple and continental but was also all we needed. We would stay here again.

I grew up not far from the Grand Eastonian. Many years ago, the "Hotel Easton", as it was formerly called, was the place to be. Then it fell on hard times and was eventually restored and re-opened. I recently was attending a wedding in the area and decided to book as the reviews were quite good. The place is lovely. There were some minor issues like internet disruption and not the clearest television signal. However, the front staff was very polite and the room was spotless. I would certainly recommend the Grand Eastonian to anyone who is needing a room in the area.

This place is beautiful and way better than the corporate chain type hotels. We stayed in the 3 bedroom suite that was out of a magazine. Huge, and modern, and super convenient location. The staff was very friendly and accommodating especially since we asked for extra dishes and dinnerware for our pasta dinner we made.

While the hotel is conveniently located right in the center of Easton, our room (705) had problems with the air conditioning. The only had a noisy portable unit that couldn't cool the room adequately and was very noisy at night. When we arrived I asked for another room but the front desk was unable to accommodate us. The lady at the front desk was not particularly friendly or helpful. Very transactional at check in and not helpful with the aircon issue. I also pointed it out at check out. The bed is also far too soft so that two people in a King Bed tend to roll to the middle. With the shortcomings of the room and bed, we felt the hotel was not good value for money.

Room Tip: Avoid room 705

Reviewer723, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel from your last stay. I am sorry the room that you stayed in was not up to expectations. All of the hotel rooms and suites have central hvac systems. During the time of your stay portable a/c units were used on a temporary basis in a few rooms due to hvac units that were down during this sold out weekend. We share all guest comments with our staff and use this feedback to improve the guest experience.

I stayed in a two bedroom suite. It was spacious, quiet and comfortable at an affordable price. This hotel had the best value out of all the hotels I looked at in the area. The location was great right in downtown Easton.
The kitchen was stocked with basic cookware and utensils and it had a full-sized refrigerator with an ice machine.
The only complaint I have is I wasn't able to shut off the air conditioning and the temperature was adjustable.
