The Grand Hotel d'Angkor is a historic luxury hotel located in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It opened in 1932, and is currently run by Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.

Architecture and design
The Grand Hotel d'Angkor was constructed in the French Colonial style popular in the early 20th century. It's fronted by 15 acres of gardens, including a produce garden that provides fruits, vegetables, and herbs for use in the kitchen, and cooking classes. The hotel features a raised portico at its front façade. The lobby elevator features ornate wrought iron doors, while throughout the hotel, guests will find black-and-white marble floors and Khmer furniture.
