Good hotel, great location
We enjoyed our stay at the Grand Central and would likely stay again. Positives: great location, attractive building and rooms, above average dining. Negatives: appear to be short-staffed, long waits at reception, no one answers phone, housekeeping was poor and did not replenish soaps or shampoo for our entire three day stay, left dirty glasses and empty bottles, etc in the rooms; so-called "superior" rooms are quite small, though nicely appointed, and poorly ventilated, glass door to bathroom not a good feature for those who like privacy.

Don't Get Room Adjacent to Central Terminal
Hotel location is perfect for travelers arriving at Central Station. However, staying in a room adjacent to it is not unless you want to hear PA announcements of train track numbers all day until 11 pm when it mercifully stops. Also, one day our room was not cleaned and it really became problematic trying to get a plunger to unclog a toilet. Around 7 pm I made two calls and three visits to the checkin desk before a very tired-looking man delivered one at 8:30. Other than those issues, it's room with a good bed, three blocks from Buchanan St., and a bargain for the price.

I cannot fault the hotel. Breakfast was not included but I paid for it (£16.50) and it was a really good breakfast. I was really satisfied with the hotel.
