“5 Star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

I stayed at the Grand Hotel in McKinney Texas recently. McKinney is about 30 miles outside Dallas. The Grand Hotel is on the Historic Square in McKinney and s surrounded by great restaurants and shopping. The hotel has been impeccably restored and is anchored by Ricks Steak house which is excellent. Great location and great hotel.

Romantic package with Rick's Steakhouse 4-course meal, chocolate-covered strawberries & champagne was a treat for our 20th anniversary. Unfortunately a wedding reception/dance was 4 doors away & the loud music played until 11pm

I reserved a room at the Grand for our wedding night, with a trip to the Texas hill country to follow. Our wedding was in a venue near McKinney, and the staff was extremely accommodating in helping my bride and her attendants get ready for our ceremony. The room was spacious and classy. Some reviews point out the road noise that can be heard in the rooms and I can vouch for that, but it wasn't that bad.....
Looking forward to spending more time in McKinney in the future, and of course another visit to the Grand!

Room Tip: I can only speak to one room - 401 is an excellent room!!

Located on the downtown square, where it's surrounded by restaurants and shops just feet away, this gem of a boutique, historic hotel is well worth the price. Rick's steakhouse, located inside the hotel, offers great steaks (try the tenderloin appetizer, 4 ounces of goodness) and seafood (the sea bass is amazing). Spoon, across the street, is overrated, but Sauce (down the block a few doors) offers fabulous Italian dishes, including pizza and handmade pasta. The hotel has been renovated completely. As other reviewers have warned, ask for a room with a window and watch out for weddings in the ballroom, which can mean noise late into the night. Great bathrooms and beds.

Room Tip: Most rooms do not have windows.

I make a point of only staying at the Best hotels. I've been to Texas twice while in the Dallas area on business. It is Very Nice. It is a historic building, which is another way of saying an old building that has had a face lift. The beds were Super comfortable and the bathrooms were high-end. The rooms Do Not conform to standard hotel room sizes, every time I've stayed in a different room which presented different decor and shape. The ONLY thing I have to complain about is the A/C. You would expect that a fine Texas Hotel would have some serious A/C cooling power, but around 6pm it wont cool the room below 72-75 degrees. I fixed the problem by staying out until early evening, after the sun going down the a/c caught up. Otherwise it was very nice! McKinney is a cool place too. The town center is historic but outside the center, its pretty much all brand new construction! I would highly recommend The Grand to anyone heading in the direction of Dallas/ Mckinney.

Room Tip: If you are un-happy with your room, ask if they have a different room... not all rooms are equal, no...

We recently stayed at The Grand for a family wedding. The front desk staff was amazing. Very few issues came up; but those were resolved easily at the front desk. The hotel is quaint, and located just off the adorable square in downtown McKinney. Once parked, you can easily walk to various shops and restaurants on the square. Do be specific when reserving your room if you want a window. Many of the rooms are 'inside' rooms with no window; and there are some with skylights (so late sleepers, take note). The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a walk in shower which was perfect for my husband. We definitely plan to stay at this location when we next visit McKinney. The price is a little high, but worth the convenient location and service.

Room Tip: The rooms seem to all be different; but be sure to be specific when requesting your room....number a...

Stayed here this past weekend for a wedding. Beds are great, hotel staff couldn't be more accommodating , and a perfect location. Nice restaurants, bars and shops right downtown. If u want to have a nice weekend away, not touch the car and listen to some bands this is your perfect base.
