About The Grand York Hotel and Spa
Welcome to Grand Hotel & Spa, York’s first five-star hotel and the only AA five-star rated hotel in Yorkshire.
This stunning £25m hotel opened in May 2010 following the extensive refurbishment of the former North Eastern Railway headquarters – one of York’s most iconic Edwardian buildings. The building was originally constructed in 1906 as a ‘Palace of Business’ for what was then one of the most powerful public companies in the country. Today it is the region’s leading luxury hotel and has established a global reputation for its first-class service, stylish bedrooms and unique historic atmosphere.
The Grand is a multiple award-winner, most recently taking the Blue Riband ‘Hotel of the Year’ prize at the UK’s biggest tourism awards, the White Rose Awards, in 2012. It was also named Best Luxury Hotel in England in Late Rooms’ ‘Simply the Guest’ awards and made Expedia’s 2013 Insiders’ Select List, a global ranking of the world’s best hotels based on over 1m guest reviews.
