The hospitality extended by the staff at the Grand Forward was exceptional. The rooms are large and very clean. The location allows quick access to the rail system and easy access to the city life. I would stay here again either for business or with my family. Fantastic rooms, fantastic buffet breakfast, fantastic service. Loved staying here. Thank you.
