I stay at the Grand at least couple of times a year and had a terrible stay the last time I was there and vowed never to come back and switched to the Hilton. Thought I will give it another go a few days back. Inauspicious start when I spoke to the worst salesperson ever trying to book two rooms. He almost didn't want me to make a booking!!
The hotel looks fabulous after the renovation. The rooms look fabulous as well.
The in room dining menu is one of the most expensive I have experienced across the globe. I ordered a Club Sandwich and chips which cost $25+ $5= $30 to be delivered to the room!! The Gusto restaurant downstairs serves a main course for the same price. Breakfast starts at $35+$5.
If you like a work out like I do they have a reasonable Gym. Plenty of cardio machines and a very limited free weights selection. They have two machines which are ancient. One of the machines has been broken and not fixed for at least a year.
Great spa and pool.
Great hotel if it is room only!
