We just got back from a weekend in Kennebunkport. The Grand was possibly one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. My husband and I have a 1 and 3 year old and most places, although say they are family friendly, aren't. This hotel is. They even noticed that we had a smaller room and at check in,...
