My family and I stayed for two nights recently and had a blast. The Pool was a big hit! Our room was really nice and well kept. The beds are very comfy and my kids slept like logs. The housekeeping staff was excellent and really took care of a few small requests with ease. The price we paid was incredible,...

Thank you for your wonderful review. This is a historic hotel that was built in 1896. The decadence and the attention to detail of that era can be seen throughout our hotel. Again, thank you for the review. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We were coming to Dayton to participate in Relay for Life, and we decided to stay in the Dayton Grand Hotel because it was a little less expensive than some of the hotels that were closer, and with a higher rating. Our relatives who are local to Dayton told us to cancel our reservation, because it was a "bad part...

My family and I were in town to see Wicked over the weekend. We had a fabulous time. The hotel is very charming. The staff could not have been more helpful. The hotel was very clean, had a parking garage and a very nice pool. We ate at two restaurants that were within walking distance. I couldn't have asked for...

Family from out of town stayed on the 16th of June and they had to move to three different rooms before getting one that was cool enough to stay in. They had 3 rooms on different floors and two out of the three rooms ended up with bedbug Bites. I called to report it and they acted totally unsurprised and...

My utmost apologies if you feel the front desk did not respond to you in the manner in which you thought was appropriate. We here at the Dayton Grand Hotel take these types of issues very seriously. We had Sanitarian Inspector #3360 from Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County in today to check the specific rooms to which you alleged...

Our room was spacious and charming! Any problems mentioned in earlier reviews about the air conditioning have obviously been fixed, since the hotel was wonderfully cool and comfortable when we stayed there for the past 5 days. Great location and the service was perfect, especially at the breakfast bar. Several good restaurants within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel.

I had a very nice two night stay. The room was beautiful. The pool looked just like the picture on the web site. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are several good restaurants within one block of the hotel. The hotel bar was quaint and the bartenders were great. I would definitely stay here again. I travel a...

In a word... worn. This hotel needs a refurb in the worst way. Here are a few examples of the issues (some major, some just to emphasize the point): 1. The AC works but sounds and feels like its ready to stop at any moment. Also, it doesn't work well . On high cool the room stayed warmer than I...

My family and I made the mistake of booking a room in this hotel over memorial day weekend for a softball tournament.

Upon arrival check in seemed to take a rather long time. We had 4 rooms that were booked at the same time, only 2 were on the same floor. Overall the hotel was fairly clean, parking is a hassle in the so called "parking ramp". The room was pretty nice, bed was comfortable but the air conditioning did not work...
