The hotel was nice for a one night stay in the city

Pros: Close restaurants
Our overall stay was good! The rooftop pool was a nice bonus although needs a few repairs. The parking was a little confusing due to an early departure the following morning, no one was in the car garage to direct us. Great location for walking around downtown and felt very safe.

The hotel was clean and the price was reasonable.

Cons: No free Internet
I liked the fact that it was in the international area. Greek, Chinese, Japanese and other asian foods were available.

Typical for a bigger city hotel.

We stayed at the Grand Chancellor for 4 nights in May 2009 during our 3 week trip from the USA. It was a great location in the middle of the city, which was the main reason we chose it. Unfortunately, location was about the only good thing for us. I didn't realize this hotel had no rooms with more than 1 bed; and a small, uncomfortable bed at that. We were traveling with our 22 month old son, who doesn't sleep in a crib now at all. I asked for a roll away bed, which would have cost an extra $ per night, but they had none available. I was then willing to purchase another room, but none were available. So in the end I slept on the floor for 4 nights so my pregnant wife and son could get some sleep. Otherwise, the room was okay, but tiny. We found that we were trying to stay out as long as possible, just so we didn't have to be in the room. I can only compare this room to a couple I've stayed in in Tokyo. Tiny, not comfortable, but that's what you get in an old hotel in a bigger city. We won't be back.
