The staff is superb along with the accommodations. My wife and I loved the view and the location is perfect for everything. The restaurant is excellent on all fronts. You will not be disappointed with the Grand Colonial.

Beautiful historic hotel, fantastic location, great service and comfortable accommodations. The only minor complaint we had was that due to the pedestal sink in the bathroom, there was no counter space. It was a bit of a challenge finding space to set toiletries.More
