I booked my plans to Minneapolis for a convention and found The Grand at the last minute. The price was more than reasonable, the service was fantastic, and the hotel was very modern and clean with very attentive staff. The hotel was centrally located. The room gave you enough space to spread out, the bed was comfortable and inviting, and... More

This hotel is very nice all around with very fast elevators. The single bed room was a good size room with plenty of space to keep bags out of the way. The bed was very comfortable, the desk was large and great for work, and the large flat panel TV had tons of channel options. The bathroom was a decent... More

Dear martinjld, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I appreciate the mention of our speedy elevators.

Dear MsPapercut, Thank you for taking the time to write about us! I'm so pleased you found great value in your stay. Sunday nights tend to be slower than other nights of the week, so we are sometimes able to offer some attractive deals. However, rates are always fluctuating based on date and availability.

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
