The Grand Hotel is one of the most special places in the world, and that extends to the dress code set for guests. Keep in mind while packing that the dress code for ladies and gentlemen fits the relaxed yet elegant atmosphere of the Grand Hotel. The dress code prohibits crop tops, sweatpants or cut-off shorts before 6:30pm. After 6:30pm, ladies should wear dresses, skirts, blouses or oxford tops, pantsuits or slacks around the hotel or to dinner. Traditional resort attire such as dresses or blouses and skirts for ladies and girls, as well as chinos, and polos are appropriate for daytime activities as well. Gentlemen are required to outfit themselves in a suit coat, necktie, dress shirt and slacks for dinner, and are not allowed to wear denim or shorts to dinner. This dress code applies to all areas within the Grand Hotel. My husband and I enjoy the dress code and we enjoy the opportunity to celebrate our visit to the Grand Hotel by dressing up and mixing prints (my husband’s go to combination for bowtie/tie and kerchief combinations is gingham and stripes!) For a quick guide and 50 examples of how to mix prints, please check out this blog post! The Grand Hotel is one of the last remaining vestiges of a time where respect and excitement were expressed through fine dressing, and it’s a wonderful way to celebrate a tradition that’s over a century old!
