Charismatic Santiago Mendoza owns the hotel, while his glamorous second wife, Gigi, and their adult children enjoy the spoils of success. The hotel’s loyal staff round out a contemporary, fresh take on an upstairs/downstairs story. Wealthy and beautiful guests bask in luxury, but scandals, escalating debt and explosive secrets hide beneath the picture-perfect exterior.
It is being reported that ABC has cancelled Grand Hotel after just one season. The sad news comes less than a month after the drama's freshman finale, which finally provided answers to the ongoing mystery but also left viewers with a cliffhanger that will now never be resolved.
The series followed the family-owned Riviera Grand Hotel in Miami Beach - a five-star establishment that has allowed the owners to enjoy a life of luxury. But as wealthy and beautiful guests come and go from the picture perfect hotel, growing debt, sordid scandals, and shocking secrets keep the owners and staff plenty busy behind the scenes.
