    The Grande Colonial does a wonderful job of balancing its heritage of over 100 years while presenting itself as a welcoming and contemporary venue. The staff is gracious; 910 restaurant is superb and the location is perfect. Treat yourself to a stay!

    No. Some rooms have a terrace though. For example, if you get a suite you may have access to a garden terrace outside your door.

    I don't believe that pets are allowed at the Grande Colonial, but the Sheraton and upscale Valencia hotel both cater to dogs.

    When we stayed around Christmas time, some room types included parking. Might be worth checking, or upgrading to a different room if the $ works out in your favour.
