* BittersweetEnding: The Baron is dead, and Grusinskaya's going to be alone. Kringelein is still going to die. But Preysing at least will face justice, and Flaemmchen and Kringelein will grab some happiness while they can.
** Flaemmchen believes that with all his money they can find a great doctor who can cure him. Whether this is realistic (they ''are'' going to Paris) or wishful thinking is YMMV.

This film is probably the first true AllStarCast film ever made, featuring most every A-lister in the MGM lineup. ''Grand Hotel'' won the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Picture, without even being nominated for any other Oscars, the only time this has ever happened. Contains the SignatureLine of Garbo's whole career--"I want to be alone."

[[note]]At least part of the reason is that there was no clear lead actor or actress, and there were no supporting acting awards at the time.[[/note]] Contains the SignatureLine of Garbo's whole career--"I want to be alone."

Followed by a SpiritualSuccessor, ''Film/DinnerAtEight'', which not only featured a similar narrative structure but had several of the same actors playing similar parts. It was remade in TheForties as ''Weekend at the Waldorf'', starring Lana Turner.

Added DiffLines:

* BalconyEscape: The Baron enters Grusinskaya's room by climbing from balcony to balcony.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Grusinskaya, initially implied to be ThePrimaDonna, has a moment of gratuitous niceness when she offers to help a frail old woman entering an elevator.


Added DiffLines:

* TalkingDownTheSuicidal: When the Baron overhears Grusinskaya "in despair," his response is to disclose his presence and confess his feelings for her so she'll have something to hold on to.

Not to be confused with ''Series/GranHotel'' which shares the same English-language title, or ''Film/GrandBudapestHotel'', which doesn't.
