The best luxury hotels in York
"As well as occupying what has to be one of the city's best locations, The Grand also offers tip-top service, a good choice of eating options, a spa and a pool. The colossus of a building was formerly the Edwardian headquarters of the wealthy North Eastern Railway Company and original features such as parquet flooring, hefty dark-wood doors and a sweeping stone staircase have been blended with a colour scheme of deep purple and charcoal greys plus swathes of velvet in chairs and sofas. Bedrooms are generous to a fault; even the entry-level Classics have space for a small party, and bathrooms feature baths as well as showers."
