More than 150 years after the hotel’s founding in 1868, The Grand Summit Hotel's original guest rooms have been renovated to 21st century standards while retaining the boutique style and charm that distinguish them from the sameness of branded franchised hotels. The independent hotel’s family owners are committed to providing friendly, individualized service in the tradition of the founders.
Specializing in catered corporate and association meetings and social events, including weddings, anniversary celebrations, bar and bat mitzvahs, class reunions and baby showers, The Grand Summit Hotel's ballroom can accommodate up to 150 attendees for corporate meetings, 225 for social events and 350 for trade shows and receptions.
