We booked this hotel for its convenient location near State Theater in Easton, to attend a concert by Irish tenor, Paul Byrom. We got much more than convenience! Since the hotel was sold out due to concert, we were very pleased when Zelda, the desk clerk worked so hard to accommodate our group's needs. The rooms are actually condos, with a variety of layouts. Our room had a single king bed, large bathroom with whirlpool & shower, large closet. Wood floors were walnut stained, walls an off-white, which was repeated throughout hotel. Don't let the nondescript maze of hallways fool you! Our friend's "room" was larger than most apartments! Each room had a unique size, and securely locked doors allowed for flow from one room to another, if desired. Obviously designed to fit the condo owner's needs. The hotel really was "grand!" I wish we had had more time to see the charming city of Easton. By the way, dinner at Pearl Baker's is a must (try the bacon jam!).

Room Tip: Be sure to ask how big the "room" is - you will be mightily surprised!

Four of us booked a two-bedroom suite for a night in Easton to see a show. It was a stunning hotel. The suite was far bigger than expected - two bedrooms, two baths (one of which had a double vanity, shower, and jacuzzi tub), and a large living/dining area and kitchen. The hotel was turned into condos a few years ago, but, when the economy tanked, it was turned back to a hotel, so suites like this are giant. Everything was clean and modern with really good finishes. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, especially the last at the front desk when we checked out. She told us all about the history of the hotel and the town and was very nice. If I ever have a reason to go to Easton again, this is where I'll stay. It can't be beat.

One of the places my wife and I love to go is Easton, PA, because they have excellent restaurants along with numerous bars and nightclubs all within a two block radius. The problem is that we don’t want to drink and drive, so we like to stay somewhere within walking distance. We discovered the Grand Eastonian while looking for a place to stay in Easton.

The Grand Eastonian is a really nice hotel. If you’re not familiar, you should check out their website. They generally offer two main room styles: suites and rooms. However, they’re known for their “suites”, which include modern kitchens with full size appliances, fireplaces (fake), dining areas, flat screen TVs, etc. The “rooms” are generally in line with standard hotel rooms, except the tubs are whirlpool tubs.

Generally speaking, if you pick from the internet, their suites are “queen” suites, with no whirlpool bath, and their rooms are king rooms with no kitchen, fridge, or anything except the whirlpool tub. But here’s the thing: the desk clerk told me that they intentionally only show two room types on the internet, even though they have many others (including a three floor room with 3 king bedrooms!) What they do is upgrade the early bookers in order to make the less popular rooms available for booking on the internet. So the earlier you book, the better chance you have of being upgraded at no charge. I think of the seven or eight times we’ve stayed there, we’ve been upgraded at least five or six times. I’m not sure why they do it this way, because they sell out almost every weekend. But no arguments from me. We’ve stayed in the best rooms they have, and they’re nothing short of spectacular. In fact, we just stayed there last weekend and were upgraded from a standard king room to a king suite with an additional queen bedroom.

With respect to the actual suites: they’ve always been clean when we’ve been there, although they have a rough look to them (the walls and ceilings appear to be bare cement support structures painted white.) Many times one or more lights are burned out, but they’ll replace them if you ask. And we’ve seen a couple of suites where the fireplace didn’t work properly (or at all). We’ve never really minded, however, since we were usually getting a suite for the price of a room. The configuration we’ve seen the most is a queen suite with the king room attached. Essentially the door between the two rooms is unlocked, and you get to use both. This gives you a queen bedroom, a king bedroom, a normal bathroom with standup shower, and a “master” bathroom with standup shower and whirlpool tub.

The staff is very friendly, and they all seem to like the hotel and the surrounding area. The hotel offers free continental breakfast most mornings, but we’ve never taken advantage of it since we actually live nearby (15 minutes away). Plus, Easton has some of the best eateries around!

All in all, it’s an excellent hotel in the middle of a city with a lot to do. We plan on going back a lot in the foreseeable future.

Room Tip: Book early! They upgrade early bookers if they don't sell out!

I went to the region on business and had a car ordered for the morning, which unfortunately never showed up. Without being prompted the GM offered to give me a ride and made sure that I got to where I wanted to get to. This took probably an hour out of his day, but he never minded and was adament to help.
The lady at reception in the morning was very helpful and also quite welcoming. You can tell this is a small place where people care about their customers and the people they meet. The room was adequate and great value.

Stayed in the two bedroom suite with my sister in January. The suite worked out very well for our purposes at the time. The kitchen was great and there was a large dining table in addition to an island. We picked up food and brought it back which was a great opportunity to just hang out over a busy weekend. The suite was two floors which was pretty cool, however, the blower in one bedroom was really loud. We loved having our own bathrooms. The living room furniture needed to be updated - the couch was stained and uncomfortable. The young woman at the front dest was less than welcoming. I thought it was a good alternative to the typical side of the highway motel.

Room Tip: If you are looking for two bedrooms, ask for the suite that has two floors - lots of room.

This is the most expensive hotel in the Easton area, I recommend you save your money and go to the Holiday Inn Express down the street. It looks nice, but the the staff is inhospitable. The mattress was uncomfortable, the room was cold and the blanket was slightly thicker than a Bounty paper towel. The elevator is very slow, and you need a complicated code to enter the building after 7pm, and if you have trouble with that, good luck getting into the building. The bathroom is so far from the bedroom that you are wide awake by time you find it, if you should have to use it during the night. We had a rough night and overslept. Check-out was at noon. I called at noon to ask for more time I was told to get out of the room by 12:30: the hotel was so empty at the time, I didn't even see a mouse, much less a housekeeper. When I checked out the man behind the desk asked me about my stay, I told him it was awful, and he told me to have a nice trip home. There is no AAA discount for this place, and though the room is a suite, there is not any place else to sleep but the bed in the bedroom so it would not work for a family, and the only big thing to see in Easton is the Crayola factory. I paid $159.00 for the night. The other hotels in the area are half as much money. It was a horrible experience and it ruined my trip.

Room Tip: Go to the Holiday Inn down the street

Very interesting renovation with a grand lobby and new updates to old architecture. I loved the indoor heated pool and workout room. Wood floors, marble bathroom with whirlpool tub and large walk in shower.

Two things spoiled the experience a bit for me. Very spotty wireless Internet and no access in the pool area. The other was the heating in the room. No controls and a noisy vent stuck to the ceiling that ran all the time. A bit too warm for sleeping.

If they could improve on these two and the breakfast I'd give it five stars.
