Stayed here for 2 nights this July. The hotel is located centrally downtown and easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars.
We had a top floor corner room and it was incredible. Super comfy bed and huge bathroom with a tv in the wall above the tub. Oversized glass shower was nice too. If you are used to Kimpton properties, this is pretty much spot on to that style and feel. We walked over to the W one night to check out their top floor bar and were much more impressed with the overall vibe and feel of The Grand.. it just felt more classier.
The one major issue we had on both days was the valet. While the valet people were friendly, they are very short-staffed. We waited almost 30 minutes just to leave the car with them one afternoon (line of cars in front of us waiting) and 25 min's the next night. Valet pickup was usually 20-30 mins on average for us. For $35/night, I would have rather walked to a public garage blocks away.
Minus the parking, I have nothing bad to say about our stay. The building has some incredible architecture and details and is very clean. I will be back (but without a car).
