Fodor's Review

The city's most famous hotel, this seafront landmark is a huge, creamy Victorian wedding cake of a building dating from 1864. It's both imposing and elegant, with high-ceiling public rooms richly decorated with enormous chandeliers and plenty of marble. Having afternoon tea here is a Brighton tradition, and highly recommended. The spacious bedrooms are traditional in style, with luxurious fabrics and large bathrooms. The Grand is famous in Britain for having survived an IRA bombing attack in 1984 that targeted Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
