Not many other options
Posted Aug 29, 2016
If your looking for a hotel around the Culinary Institute of America there are not a lot of options. But keep in mind the term "Grand" can be deceptive. This is NOT an upscale hotel. The staff lack the experience and professionalism of a upscale property and the rooms while acceptable are far from high-end. In our room, the coffee maker did not work, numerous outlets were nonfunctional, and the television remote barely was able to change the channels (needed batteries). We had dinner at CIA and were told that the hotel would pick us up if we called, after dinner...took them over an hour to get there...we could have walked the 4 miles quicker.
