We thought we would try something different than the Best Western where we normally stay so we tried the Grand Trento. The hotel is truly one of the nicer hotels we have stayed in. The front desk was friendly but our room though extremely upscale was very small, so we needed to return one piece of luggage to the basement garage. This was not as easy as you would think for the elevator to the Garage parking is at the other end of the hotel. We also noticed when we took the luggage to our room there were no luggage carts available for guest, but I am sure you could have paid a hotel staff person to carry your luggage for you.
Even though the room was fully equipped, the in room WIFI met minimum standard with only a 0.99MBS so slow it would barely do email and web surfing was almost impossible and the login was difficult. Otherwise, the room was high tech and we had to call the desk to figure out how to operate the bed light on and off switches. The Bath was also extremely small but was very luxuries and finished in beautiful Italian alabaster marble.
Our in room safe was broken and we could not set the combination; also, I found that the Sauna was not available for use for it was closed on Sunday nights, and our TV had no English channels, not even news.
The Bar was open however, and as can be seen from the photo it a good place to relax or meet friends before dinner. There were several good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
The Breakfast the following morning was adequate but a little disappointing. The staff was unfriendly and not helpful. Scrambled eggs were poorly prepared and if you wished eggs to order there was an extra 6e cover charge. We expected better from a hotel of this caliber.
Yes this is a nice hotel but we were happier at the Best Western and will stay there again on our return visit.
