Our stay was one of the best. We would do it again. No complaints at all. Thank you so much. Hope one day you come to Canada and you get the same service.

Great hotel, very nice rooms. Most staff were very nice although some came across as slightly pretentious.

Get the New Building!
My friend and I ended up staying two night...the first in an executive twin suite (which is in the new building), and was AMAZING. The second night we had to move rooms into the Grand Heritage Suite, which by comparison was a let-down, but nice (in the old building). While the new room had hardwood floors, a huge bathroom, etc..., what was supposedly a bigger suite was not as nice (in my humble opinion). The check-in process was odd, having to wait in an ante-room and then be escorted into an office. and while the bellmen were friendly, the one that promised to transfer our bags from the one room to the other never did and when we asked for our bags another assured us they were delivered...until we pointed them out to him in the luggage storage room. Small quibbles, but an excellent property.

Don’t pass up a chance to stay at The Grand Hotel!
It is such a pleasure to stay there!! I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else. I’ve never been treated so well.....a private tour of the hotel and a birthday card, balloon, chocs waiting to greet my sister in her room!! Thank you Jordy for the tour and Sophie for your excellent care in preparing for our stay.

Perfect location, friendly staff, beautiful hotel.
Perfect location, valet park the car, you won't need it, you can walk anywhere in York from here. The hotel has beautiful architecture and character and the staff were warm, friendly and helpful. The gym had a decent selection of equipment, the pool/hot tub/sauna/steam were lovely and although we didn't get to eat at Hudson's (not open Sundays or Mondays) the Rise restaurant was lovely and the buffet breakfast selection was impressive. The room (416-executive twin) was spacious, with heated bathroom floors, soaker tub AND shower, luxurious robes, a fridge and a comfy seating area. I would definitely stay here again.
