AUDIENCE SCORE
User Ratings: 6,983
Rating: 8/10 -- A tremendously sturdy, thoroughly unimaginative, and massively entrancing sample of the early-'30s Hollywood machine doing everything exactly right. Full Review

Less effective as a movie than as a dazzling parade of star iconography. Full Review
Chicago Reader
Dec 12, 2006
Rating: 5/5 -- The star-filled melodrama that is Grand Hotel became a blueprint for almost every glossy Hollywood soap opera that followed it. Full Review
Radio Times
Jan 13, 2014
A commercial picture of high box office potential, first by assembling the most impressive aggregation so far of strictly Bradstreet screen names, and then by filming the play practically unaltered in form. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The first great portmanteau film. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- How thoroughly does Joan Crawford own Grand Hotel? She makes Greta Garbo superfluous. Full Review

The camera movements and production values are elaborate and intriguing and engaging. There is a sense of activity, of bustle in every frame. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

"People come. People go. Nothing ever happens," one world-weary patron (Lewis Stone) of Berlin's finest hotel comments. Movie audiences knew better. They were witnessing the glorious comings, goings and intersecting stories of a starry array billed as "the greatest cast on stage or screen history!"

Ruined aristocrat John Barrymore. Terminally ill clerk Lionel Barrymore. Ruthless tycoon Wallace Beery. Scheming stenographer Joan Crawford. And disillusioned ballerina Greta Garbo. Teaming them was a masterstroke whose success fostered more star-packed extravaganzas. The radiant film captured the 1931-32 Best Picture Academy Award. What a Grand showcase of the allure and style of classic moviemaking!
