“Elegant hotel in the heart of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

The Grand Hotel is a pretty hotel located in the heart of the small town of Salem. You can easily walk to the riverfront park, the capitol building, Willamette University, and the Salem Mall. There are many interesting restaurants and stores in the downtown area. Salem is a very walkable and friendly town.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night in March 2012 while visiting Willamette University. Our room was spacious with two queen beds, a couch, and a desk. The bathroom was also and had nice toiletries. In the morning there is a breakfast buffet, which we both enjoyed, especially the fresh fruit kababs.

The rooms are large and clean. The bathroom has plenty of counter space. Their breakfast buffet is big and fresh. The only problem is the location of my room. It is right by the big AC units outside, so it is loud all night, it kept waking me up.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

I stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip and found it perfectly pleasant. It's location is fairly central for Salem (though I have to say, the center of Salem didn't seem all that pleasant), though due to various one way streets, it wasn't that easy to find the entrance to the car park.

Anyway, the staff at check-in were very friendly and helpful, and the room itself was fine. Not the best work area I've had in a hotel, but adequate for the business traveler. Very comfortable bed, and a bathroom that while a little dated, was clean and in good condition.

The fitness center was small, but well equipped, as was the pool (small that is, equipment isn't really relevant!)

The only thing that was poor was the breakfast. It was a buffet breakfast, similar to most hotels of this type, but it was served in a dingy conference room, on long tables, and the selection was poor. I felt like I was back at school again.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Grand Hotel as part of a birthday celebration. We had a very nice suite, quite roomy and comfortable. The central location made it possible to park the car, find great restaurant choices within one or two blocks and attend the Pink Martini concert at the historic Elsinore Theater. We were surprised at the generous breakfast buffet--several cooked choices and fresh fruit. The staff was helpful and friendly.

We had a nice stay at the Grand Hotel while visiting our son at Western Oregon University, a short 20 minute drive away. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed on the third floor with a king room, overlooking the exhaust system with a view of the gym ( I imagine there are better views, we didn't spend much time in the room, so didn't bother us). Rooms are spacious, clean and there is mini fridge and microwave, also coffee pot. Flat screen tv with good selection of channels. The breakfast, which was included in the rate, was great! Couple concerns: blow dryer: inadequate, bring your own! Outside machine noise woke us our second night, however staff promptly brought us earplugs after offering to move us to a different side of the hotel (since it was 1am, we declined). From the staff's explanation, this must be a common occurrence. Towels could be softer and there was a small amount of peeling wallpaper in the bathroom. These are all minor things, and would definately stay there again and recommend to a friend.
