Stayed at the Grand in Sept. 2014 for one night. The Grand has everything I've come to expect from the Kimpton brand. It's clean, nicely decorated, centrally located and the staff is super friendly. I stayed in a one bedroom suite. The accommodations were just perfect: lots of space, separate living room and work area, very comfortable king bed and... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The downtown location was easily and economically reached by the Light Rail from the airport. Several very nice restaurants are easy walking distance as are theaters and museums. Our suite was comfortable, roomy, and spotless. The restoration of an historic property was very well done. The weekend prices are... More

Dear emoryeagle73, Thank you for taking the time to write about us! I'm pleased that you enjoyed your experience. We certainly do have an ideal location. It's so nice being a few blocks from the light rail station and within walking distance to other attractions. We are also connected to the skyway, which comes in handy in the winter. I... More

I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel Minneapolis for 3 nights in a one bedroom suite, room 715. The hotel lives up to its name, "Grand" in decor and comfort. The gym, indoor lap pool, and spa facilities are clean + top notch. The staff was pleasant and professional if unhelpful at times - a work in progress. The valet... More

Dear Robzranger, Thank you for the grand review! I'm pleased that you found the suite comfortable and attractive. Lifetime Fitness is indeed an impressive facility and we are so fortunate to have full access. I regret that valet was a bit slow the first night, but happy to know that they recovered and were attentive the rest of your stay.... More

Great location, but even better service from the staff. From the front desk to the bartenders to the valet service, top-notch all around. We were upgraded with even requesting it, and the room was big and airy. I will definitely stay at the Grand on my next trip to the Big City.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary this past weekend. From our check-in to the wine reception to the luxurious lounge and all the special extras the staff offered to make our stay amazing, this was absolutely a phenomenal stay! Highly recommend when staying in downtown Minneapolis!

I stayed here for the TC Marathon....hotel is an easy walk to the start, as well as other downtown activities and the light rail. The rooms were very nice: modern, clean, spacious and comfortably furnished. Huge bathroom with a TV in the wall, over the soaking tub (perfect post-marathon).

We stayed at the Grand Hotel/Kimpton the weekend of the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon. The hotel room was fabulously comfortable, the free wine hour generous, and the front desk staff efficient and welcoming. To top it off, when we were caught in traffic gridlock for the marathon and called into the hotel to say we'd be late to check out,... More

The hotel is in a great location not too far from all the great restaurants, bars, clubs and sports facilities on and near Hennepin Ave. It has an older hotel feel when you walk inside, but the rooms are quite modern and nice with super comfortable beds and a nice bathroom. They offer a nice manager's reception each night and... More

This is a really beautiful hotel in a great part of Minneapolis. But, and this is a big but, they charge extra for Wi-Fi. This is ridiculous when you are already charging over $300 per night. Otherwise, we loved our stay.

Dear Kate B, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, but disappointed you were turned off by the charge for wifi. I certainly hope our front desk staff informed you that you receive free wifi if you sign up for our rewards program, Kimpton Karma. If you were not informed, my apologies.
