I love this place, it needs some tweaks to make it
The location on Square, The room styles are unique. The historic feel.
The hot water was out and they needed to start the water heater. Never had that happen before. The beds need an upgrade, Also the front entrance is hard to get in and out of with luggage.
The decor was very nice. The antique furnishings were elegant. The location was great, as there are many shops and restaurants within a block or two of the hotel. The downtown area of McKinney was fairly lively, but still had a small town feel to it. The restaurant attached to the hotel (Rick's) was very nice....bring your appetite! We enjoyed a peaceful getaway, while being a short drive away from the major shopping areas.
The rooms at the back of the hotel facing the alleyways (as ours was) are subject to the noises of trash and delivery trucks between 5:30 and 6:30 in the morning. If you're not an early riser, this could be a bummer.
A stay at The Grand Hotel places you in the heart of McKinney, within a 10-minute drive of Collin College and Allen Premium Outlets. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. This hotel has 5 meeting rooms available for events. Free self parking is available onsite.
