After attending a jazz and dinner at one of the local wineries we decided rather than to drive home it would be wiser to stay "in town" at one of the hotels. Since we weren't ready to go to our room we hung out a bit in the very happening bar where an awesome female singer was playing the keyboard and wailing out great songs. The accompanying brass players were terrific also. But you are reading this to find out about the hotel, aren't you?
The hotel is located on the main drag. The rooms in the main building are large and very nice. The bathrooms are pretty cool too. (We know this because the day after we stayed here we asked if we could take a peek at a few of the rooms in the main building.) If you stay in the front of the hotel it might be a little noisy on the weekends where there is quite a bit of action on the street below and in the hotel's bar. We stayed in the building in the back of the hotel. Our room was nice, not quite as nice as the rooms in the hotel, but it was very quiet. We enjoyed a continental breakfast that was included in the price of the hotel. If the weather is nice you can sit outside in the patio. Lunch and dinner are good here. The staff is very welcoming, from Chris in reception to Monte in the bar. This is a fun place to stay since it is a historic property. Presidents James Garfield, Ulysses S. Grant, and Benjamin Harrison and Mark Twain are a few of the well known people who slept here. You can see quite a few artifacts from earlier times when this town was really hopping. While we don't always stay overnight in Grass Valley, we always do make a stop at the Holbrooke. We like the hotel, the ambiance, the friendly bar, the welcoming staff, the cool town, and the town's proximity to local wineries and to the Lake Tahoe area. It's all good!
