A group of cyclists, including myself, stayed here in early Sept. Fantastic service. The overlook balcony on the town square was so wonderful. And the tea in the evening was a nice touch. Rooms were clean and the bathroom was elegant. We will be back.

really loved staying in the heart of downtown Mt Vernon. This boutique style hotel had such nice amenities and friendly staff. the complimentary breakfast and coffee was amazing! We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend this place.

While college towning nearby Gambier Ohio (visiting Kenyon College on September 15 and 16) we happened upon this gem. This is a momentous occasion for me personally because I have never felt the need to post pictures on TripAdvisor until now...so that you too will be a believer.
We, of course, used TripAdvisor to find the highest ranked hotel near Kenyon College and the Mount Vernon Grand, in nearby Mount Vernon, OH, was at the top of the list.
But how good can any hotel be in rural Ohio in a town of 15,000?
Well, how about friendly, prompt and caring service (picture Ritz Carlton meets Mayberry). How about stature, decor and furnishings that can meet (or beat) most Four Seasons. Add perfect location in the heart of downtown with walkability to great restaurants (see my review on The Alcove), a unique tea bar with many gourmet raw teas, hot cookies at check-in, free parking and the list goes on.
My five star rating of this hotel is a relative rating. You won't find valet parking, a doorman or a full time concierge desk here. But these items in big cities have utility because of security and volume concerns. At the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel park your own car 20 seconds from the front door, open your own doors and ask the nice lady at the desk where to eat... or use TripAdvisor. The point here is you can't have an apples to apples comparison of some hotels because location is everything. This hotel would be a solid three star hotel in downtown Chicago or NYC. In the plethora of college towns we have explored....and in rural Ohio...this is as good as it gets. Five stars!
We hope we will have the opportunity to visit the area again and we will only look to stay here. Mount Vernon Ohio is becoming a destination unto itself.
Thank you Mount Vernon Grand Hotel for surprising us and making us feel like family.
Thank you so much for the kind word and 5 star rating! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Please check out our Facebook page for updates and specials. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
My wife and I attended a wedding in Mt Vernon and stayed at three Grand Hotel, downtown. The hotel was newly built and model after the previous hotel located in the same spot. It was right on the center town square and conveniently located near several restaurants and the church for the wedding. We had a very nice stay and the people were warm and friendly.
Thank you so much for your kind word and for choosing us for your home away from home. Please keep us in mind when you are in the area again. Have a Grand day!
Highly recommend the Grand. This was my second stay and I look forward to the next. Located in a nice area and they have a very helpful staff. Great breakfast in the morning and cleanliness is top notch at this establishment.
