As some of our others - we elected to stay at a Kimpton due to their dog friendly policies. The Grand staff was just as loving and warm welcoming as the other Kimptons - really is a great thing to be able to rely on. This hotel is a little old fashioned --- smaller elevators --- carpeting looks a little... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to another city in midwest. Here is our experience: (1) Room: We paid for a luxury room with a king size bed. Our room was spacious, clean, and quiet; bed was comfortable with good quality sheets; we got two extra pillows per our request; bathroom was... More

Dear bwang20874, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to share your feedback. I'm pleased you enjoyed the room accommodations. The fluffy socks for sale in the closet is something all Kimpton Hotels started providing as an honor bar item a few years back. I'm sorry you were shocked by the price. I can understand why. The...

My wife and I had a wonderful four day stay with our Golden Retriever. We very much appreciated how welcoming and friendly the entire staff was to us. This is truly a dog friendly hotel. The health club and pool are extraordinary for a hotel. Great location downtown. Thanks Mary (bartender)!

The Kimpton Grand Hotel Minneapolis is a nice convenient hotel in downtown Minneapolis. I flew into MSP Airport, and it is easy to get to the hotel using the light rail from the airport. The hotel is nearby the Government Plaza light rail station. My hotel room was large and comfortable. The hotel has a good bar with light food... More

Dear Lynette1034, Thank you for celebrating your anniversary with us and writing this awesome review! I love that we are your favorite hotel in Minnie! Aren't the bathrooms the best?! It's unusual, but the majority of our guest rooms have four fixture bathrooms and many have a TV on the wall adjacent to the tubs. It's a nice bonus for... More

Step back in time from the hustle and bustle of the city. I surprised my wife with a weekend getaway to the Grand Hotel. A beautiful hotel with lovely rooms that are good size. I upgraded to a small suite and it was well worth it. Most courteous staff I have encountered. Surprised us with a bottle of champagne for... More

Watch your bank statement while staying at the hotel!!!! Your bank information, ID is not safe at the front desk. Large furniture charges were made on mine ... Maybe to decorate the hotel!!!! - also the building smells old, moldy ... The shower pressure is awful and the Wifi is not free!! You've been warned!

Dear schoenveter, I take this claim incredibly seriously. I highly doubt this is the case. We have high security measures in place to protect our guests. Our property management system suppresses all but the last four digits of credit cards, so the front desk agents and all other employees are unable to access credit card numbers. We've had hundreds of... More

This is a nice boutique hotel with beautiful rooms. The service is quite good overall. The parking is a little expensive so you have to account for that in the price. It's a decent location downtown, but right outside of the hotel seems a little sketchy sometimes, but seems safe overall and a quick walk to many restaurants and bars.
