Our Hotel – The Grandior Hotel Prague

So before I get to the hotel, I have to digress a bit.  We are in the van on our way to  the hotel from the airport.  It’s 11:00 AM on Friday and we are in Chicago – like rush hour traffic.  Our 35 minute trip took over an hour.  It seems driving is one of the slowest modes of transportation in Prague.  We later learned that because of the price of gas, $9.00 / gallon (US) and that there are very few places to park your car, most people take public transportation or walk.  A Czech citizen can purchase a public transportation pass for $240 / year (US).  That gives access to all forms of public transportation, which by far is that fastest way to get around.  Walking seems to be the next fastest mode of transportation as people walk everywhere.

OK, so the hotel.  As we got close to the hotel the van driver tells me, “it’s right over there”.  I see stores and other businesses, but I really don’t see a hotel….. at first.  I guess I was thinking big flashing sign with the name…. I don’t know, but I couldn’t see it.  In fact, here’s what I saw.

Now if I was across the street, I would have seen the sign.

Once we got out of the van I saw the actual front entrance which made me feel a bit better.

We walked in I completely forgot about the sign.  The hotel is beautiful.  Very modern decor as you will see in the next few images.  One thing I noticed but didn’t pay any attention to until I heard a comment from another of our new cruise friends is that “everything is square”.  And he’s right.  Tables, coffee cups, the toilet….. yep.  The sink and even the plumbing under the sink (photo to follow later), is square.  Check out the images.
