I have been to this spa several times over the years. The hair stylists and massage therapists are always friendly. However, I've had a few attendants that are at the desk and take care of the locker room be very rude. For the price of a spa service (and I always tip beyond the 18% they make you pay) I... More

For over 30 years I had lived minutes if not seconds from some of the most beautiful beaches in the USA. And then 2 years ago we bought a townhouse in League City TX and while we are on the water and it is all very nice........the vibe is more "town" than "beach"......So when my husband suggested we just head...

The staff was nice. The hotel room was cozy with a comfortable bed. The bathroom could've been cleaner. My refrigerator was inoperable but they did bring another one. I also experienced a slow draining tub which was resolved. I know the hotel was built in 1911 but it should be better maintained if it has 4-stars. The pool was nice... More

Thank you for the feedback on your stay at the hotel. Our pool is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. We don't keep the pool open past that time as we don't want to interupt sleeping guests. Thanks and we hope you'll consider staying with us again. More

Anyone can "be nice" by company mandate. However, these people SINCERELY cared about us and our comfort. Every single person. Everything was impeccably clean including our room. Food at the restaurant was outstanding and not overpriced. Pool area was clean and maintained with very friendly and attentive staff. 100% perfect in every level.

Our stay was pleasant. The rooms are a tad small compared to other hotels, but the bed is wonderful!

Following the initial excitement on seeing the Grand structure things went down hill. Initial room was lovely but was at the lift and with a small child we did not want this noise. We were moved to another room which was very small and had a tiny bathroom. Where they planned to put the rollaway for the little one ?I... More

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay at the hotel. While it's impossible to address room size due to the historic nature of the hotel, we'll make sure that staff is aware of the issues at the pool. We hope that you'll reconsider and give us another try. More
