This was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. To be honest, we didn't look at any other venues. Once I walked into the ballroom and saw the old fashioned tin roof with GORGEOUS chandeliers, I was sold. This was where we were going to have our wedding. Also, if you want to have amazing food at your wedding that your guests will continue to rave about months later, you have to book The Grand Hotel. Rick's does an amazing job with the food! Everything was delicious. We have had so many compliments about the food! Megan Lamm was awesome! She made sure we had all the details for our wedding and that everything ran smoothly. She was an absolute charm to work with! :D

Overall, it was the best weekend ever. Our wedding party and close family stayed at the hotel with us Friday through Sunday morning. Then we had brunch at Rick's Sunday morning after the wedding. All our guests loved how different each of the rooms were decorated. Jacque was so awesome at accommodating all our needs (and we were kind of needy) but she handled us very well! :D I can't say enough how nice and professional the whole team at The Grand Hotel was. We could not have had a more perfect wedding.

We booked a block of rooms at the Grand Hotel. The groom was from Australia and the bride was a local to the DFW area. We weren't sure how many guests were going to be able to come over so we booked up the whole hotel and ended up dropping a few of the rooms closer to the event. We really loved the flexibility that the Grand Hotel allowed in their room blocks. They were so easy to work with! Jacque was always willing to answer incessant questions about bookings and constantly make changes. She was really good and so kind!

We never had time to make welcome bags for our guests, but the hotel (with the help of the city) put a bag in each of our rooms full of a few goodies and some pamphlets on things to do in McKinney. Nice touch!

The two suites are fantastic! The grand suite (the larger of the two suites) has lots of windows and tons of natural light! The only thing missing is a refrigerator. The owner's suite is slightly smaller, but is located in the old wing of the hotel and does have a mini-fridge.

Amazing hotel, guests loved it! And we were able to have our rehearsal and brunch there too!

We used Rick's for our rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch the morning after our wedding. We reserved the Rick's 101 room and it was gorgeous... very grand! The food was excellent and the servers went the extra mile. Seriously, the service was exceptional! They made special accommodations for our picky nephew after they overheard him complaining that there was some ketchup touching his french fries. It was a nice touch, and something they did without asking.

Joie was excellent in helping to plan the event. She was new to the role after a sudden departure by the former coordinator and she was more than helpful in making sure everything was perfect.

The brunch was so so so good! Best brunch we have ever had and we are so glad we decided to it. We also used Rick's 101.

Great experience and we couldn't have picked a better venue for our rehearsal or brunch!
