From the valet parking (Paid), to the comfortable room (reasonably priced) all the way down to the bar on the ground level, we enjoyed our anniversary trip. The staff was so friendly, especially Betty, our bartender. The food at the bar was just okay for us, but probably good for people who like food that is a little out of... More

The hotel is pretty nice for the most part. The is valet parking (for a fee) or parking garage parking (for a fee). The indoor pool is very small. The room was descent- but no fridge or microwave. The beds were comfortable. Overall, the hotel has a strange set up with the location of the bar/restaurant and pool, but we... More

I planned a large dinner event at the gran plaza and it was excellent. The staff was great in assisting me on choosing dining options for dinner and The ballroom was a great setting for our dinner event. The catering staff was very friendly and made sure everything was prepared to our liking. When we got to our guest rooms,... More

Very overpriced. Their parking options are only Valet (who parks it like 10 feet from you) or find your own (the street was suggested to me by a valet, luckily enough I know I would've gotten towed on the street, but I find it hard to imagine people haven't been screwed by this as well). The rooms were OK at... More

We took advantage of the Riverview Romance Package Plan package. It was a romantic getaway complete with king bed, great view, in room champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and breakfast for two! We were pleasantly surprised as we had not stayed at this hotel before. The hotel atmosphere is modern and fun, yet sophisticated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. The view of the river was also very nice. Any time I find myself in Toledo this is definitely someplace I will stay again. It was conveniently located near downtown and family locations. Thank you for a great stay! :)

I've stand there twice and the rooms are comparable for the money. However, on my last stay I booked a king room online. At time of check-in, the person at the front desk said the room wasn't available. Stated that the person currently in the room decided to stay another night. I said yes but, the room has already been... More

As a Metro Detroiter who likes to get away for a weekend here and there, I discovered Toledo about 10 years ago, and generally have come back at least once per year. Since discovering the Grand Plaza (with a different moniker at the time), I have stayed there during each visit. My sister and I came down for Memorial day... More

I stayed here for four nights on business and this hotel was booked for me by my client because of the location close to the office. It's a bit weird staying in a riverfront convention hotel when no convention is going on; the place was cavernous and empty, but when I did encounter staff they were extremely friendly and helpful....
