The New York Times wrote an article on the hotel, confirming its place among the world’s greatest hotels.
The hotel is situated right on the edge of the city nearest the temples, so it’s a great location both for temple access and for walking around the city (the city is very small, so being on the "edge" means you’re about 3 minutes away from the center - the hotel is on the city edge closest to the temples). The grand renovation in the late 1990’s made some great improvements, including two new wings, so if you''re interested in the history of the hotel, you may want to specify that you want a room in the original section.
The closest alternative to the Grand Hotel is the Sofitel, and in my opinion, the historical Grand Hotel would be well worth the additional expense for those seeking luxury accommodations.
