It is a tradition of our family to identify places as "dumps" which are outstanding in every way. The U.S. Grant satisfies this criterion. After booking our flight/hotel stay using Delta Airlines, I called The Grant and spoke to a very pleasant young woman named Katrina and requested an upgrade to a corner room as well as put in a request for an early arrival. Done. Done with no problem. What a dump. Management should buy her a bag of M&M's. At arrival, check-in was effortless and our room (1005) was ready for us. We recommend a corner room. A dump I tell ya. This old guy had trouble understanding the internet charges. Kimber very politely explained that I had no problem. Another representative of The Grant who deserves a bag of M&M's. A real dump. We had a couple of bloody Marys in the lounge area and Ghia (hoping that is correct) was as the kids say, totally awesome. Guess what she deserves? Another dump moment. The young man, whose name I cannot recall, eagerly helped us print out our boarding passes for our flight home. Yes, M&M's moment. Our stay was outstanding topped off with dinner of scallops for her and ribeye steak for me washed down with some bubbly. An excellent choice of our part. Requested wake up service and cab waiting for us at 5:30 a.m. Done and done. Checkout went off without a hitch using their TV system. Side notes: The elevators were very fast. The room was immaculate. ALL staff were accommodating to the nth degree. Our room was cleaned and "normalized" with no problems. Room 1005 is a good choice. If you stay at the U.S. Grant, take time to look around at the artwork. Pretty way wahoo cool as my children would say. The Grill may give you sticker shock at first but you do not go on vacation to save money.
The U.S. Grant is a level 10 "dump." To Management reading this review: Treat your staff to some M&Ms. :)
