First time in Minneapolis, we stayed at the Grand for one night en route to Michigan's UP. This is a very good Kempinski: plush 450 sq feet room with a great bathroom, king size bed at... $155. We had a dinner at Rare, a nice steak/sushi restaurant. As a Sunday special they offer special flat rate of 30 USD pp... More

Pro's : Nice retro themed hotel in the center of town. Wonderful staff and good service. The complimentary cycle was great for exploring the city and nature trails over the weekend. Room was plush and well appointed. Con's : No ramp for luggage at front door steps. Fittings and decor may appear a bit old fashioned to some

Stayed here for one night during a business trip. Upon check in I was offered a glass of wine, ice tea or watermelon margarita...and was offered a second later on. The receptionists were very friendly. The room itself was fine, bed comfortable and nice sized bathroom. The one minor complaint was the shower head, it wasn't great. The location is... More

I was booked into this hotel on business, and did not have a choice. The appearance of the hotel seemed nice, but a few things left me very disappointed. First off, there is no bar soap in the bathroom. They choose to use a hand pump dispenser. The pump did not work well, and the location of the soap to... More

My husband and I took a pretty random trip to Minneapolis and booked the Klimpton. I definitely think we made the right choice! We got the King Suite (with the spare room) and everything was clean and professional. The staff was over the top nice - food to the room came almost instantly. When we forgot to ask for mustard...

The Grand's staff is just extraordinary and really added to our experience in Minneapolis. Tom and Mary the bar tenders at the lobby hotel were friendly and welcoming.
