Guest reviews for Grand Royale Hotel
middle of downtown not as advertised or pictured
We got to hotel were greeted by a man in jeans and a teashirt. Told where are room was walked in to a broken bathroom door a hole in the wall cigarette burn in the hot tub and a reused k cup at the coffee maker only brute spot bed was comfortable.
Room had garbage in it from previous occupants. Damage from previous occupants. Room was not cleaned by staff properly. Pubs were in the jacuzzi. Absolutely disgraceful and disgusting. When I brought this up to by management, Mr. Khan did not care. Jus said come again and we will give me certain percentage off. I asked for a partial refund and now he has ignored me. Pursuing civil actions against him.
Stayed here this past saturday and I was incredibly disappointed and infuriated. We stayed here for the Wine tasting that was at Double tree (We should've stayed there) and we were NEVER warned that the floor we were on was the same floor a PARTY was being held. The "glow" party was at the bar that was on the second floor, until 6 AM there were people yelling and running. At one point (around 3am) people were going from one end of the hallway and running into OUR DOOR. No one was doing anything about the noise. It was a straight up frat house. The Hotel was clean. That was the only good part. WILL NOT BE RETURNING. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
Rooms were not clean. The Ist room I stayed in (arrived at 5pm to check in) was filthy. Had to have them vacuum. give us a new shower curtain (there was brown foreign matter on it), and clean bathroom. Also asked for linens and pillow for pull out couch. I did not receive these items until 1 am and I had to go get them. Room smelled quite musty. The 2nd room I stayed in was almost as bad. It was also musty, several dried stains on carpet and dirty walls. The absolute worst thing about the hotel was the stairwells. When I changed rooms I decided to use the stairs - bad choice. Stairwells were full of pigeon poop, garbage and smelled like urine.
I could hear the bass pumping from across the street. Other patrons were cramming in to one room with loud knocks and talking in what I could only imagine was a under age hotel party. Everything was grimy and worn with little or no effort to create a cozy or warm feeling that an older hotel would/should be able to deliver.
great bang for your buck!
We felt we were staying at a luxury hotel, at half the cost. The building was incredible. The room was spacious, with high ceilings. It was clean and comfortable. We were able to park our car and had several options for dinner, all within walking distance. Lovely, quaint town. The staff was extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through the area.
The Royale's strongest point is its location - in the old city hall and the very center of Binghamton. Otherwise, it reminds me of a 2nd tier hotel on a Paris side street. Unfortunately, Binghamton is not Paris. The rooms are cramped and a bit worn, as is the rest of the building. Think Red Roof Inn housed in an elegant late 19th century municipal palace.
great architecture and good value for money
Very pleasant stay for two days and it included parking and access to the web. The staff were were helpful. The breakfast was basic with good coffee.
should have driven further
Parking was difficult to find--there was a graduation going on. The room was nothing like the picture. Shabby drapes. Tiny. Had a little something to eat in the dining room--the waiter Eric was the best part of the stay. And the desk clerk was very helpful. Not worth the stay.
Lovely historic hotel with comfortable room. Convenient to Binghamton University.
