Got stuck on the very first puzzle because there was a key piece of information missing from the box! Had to use a hint which made no sense because of the missing piece, then Google the game to find that it should be printed inside the box lid and the version we had did not have it (online seems to be a huge box with invitations to make it a party, we had a smaller than A5 box with just the room envelopes)! Had to use the image online to complete that puzzle. Puzzles ranged from so simple it took longer to open each "room" than to solve the puzzle, to ok. A couple of nice moments but really feel they could have made more of the rooms themselves that you open. Anyway a nice ending and quality materials but could have been so much better!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Escape from the Grand Hotel is probably the worst Escape Room game on the market. Actually, I never wanted to write about it. However, it never let me go. Read here why you should not buy this game.

Elegant production values befitting its fictitious namesake establishment cannot check us out from the realization that these puzzles are anything but Grand.
We played this as a group of five (4 adults and a nine year old). We were really impressed with the vast majority of puzzles contained within the envelopes. The quality of the puzzles was also very good and varied - despite the limitations of being a table top game, the designers have certainly structured a well flowed, thoughtful game, with great variety.
