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!
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!

Megan and her team were fantastic! She really helped us plan out our entire reception in the Ballroom. The food was perfect, the atmosphere was perfect, and I didn't have to worry about anything. Wonderful people, wonderful service.

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.

The Grand Hotel & Ballroom hands down is my favorite venue. The staff really takes care of you and your guests and the food their is AMAZING!!!! Plus it is just gorgeous. I have such a great time every time I photograph a wedding here.
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!
Absolutely Incredible Space right in the heart of McKinney!
