First off, the Grand Hotel is BEAUTIFUL. Seriously. Do yourself a favor, and just go and visit them to see what it's all about. The pictures (while still beautiful) do NOT do it justice! Melanie and Shawna were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. From moving the date around a few times to accommodate schedules, to the myriad of questions about set up, timing and food, and they never even flinched. Any emails were ALWAYS promptly responded to, even when it was well after business hours and they didn't have to! The wedding and reception itself went so smoothly, it was unbelievable. Shawna had everything running like clockwork, and everything was set up and served impeccably. I cannot recommend this venue enough!Sent on 11/17/2014
Moreover, we still have guests commenting on the quality of the food. For the price, Grand Hotel is ABSOLUTELY the best value of any venue we looked at in the DFW area. You'll get an affordable wedding that looks, feels and tastes like a 5 star affair. I wish I had another party coming up just so we could book with them again!

Destination Wedding right here at home!
I have run a ceremony venue in McKinney for several years, so when it came time for my wedding I initially wanted something far away and tropical- just so my friends and family could enjoy time together rather than focusing so much on "the event". However, after searching in several states and countries for the perfect little town where everyone could walk from place to place and entertainment was plentiful, I realized it was right here in McKinney.Sent on 06/17/2019
I also knew that The Grand had the intimate yet very elegant feel I wanted, as well as impeccable food and service. Still, even knowing how great they've been to all our clients in the past, I was absolutely blown away with my experience. I can't say enough about the entire staff, from Jacque at the front desk who helped us with guest accommodations to Allie who booked our reservation for The Ballroom to Megan who took absolutely wonderful care of us during the planning and meal selection process. I am so grateful to Rick Wells and his entire team.
Although it wasn't a "destination" for me, most of our guests from the Dallas area as well as out of state booked rooms at either The Grand Hotel or the local B&B's near the downtown square. My guests loved the experience of staying downtown and walking with us to hear live music at the nearby restaurants and bars after the wedding, and then to brunch the next day. It was the "destination wedding" feel I wanted without having to get on a plane, and it was absolutely PERFECT.

AMAZING, beautiful, and overall
Words cannot describe how flawlessly our wedding day went. Megan and her staff are AWESOME and work so hard to ensure your day is perfect. The food, atmosphere, staff, and overall experience made this venue worth every penny. Guests can stay in the rooms surrounding the ballroom making it easy for you, your friends, and family to have a good experience as well. Definitely check it out if you’re looking to get married in the North Dallas area!Sent on 05/27/2019

Great venue and one we love to be invited to photograph at. The entire team is wonderful and very kind and they work hard at each event. The ballrooms are always pristine and presentable and they staff works hard on the little details like keeping drinks full and tables clean. We highly recommend this venue!
