I like the Kimpton line of hotels in NYC so I was excited to check out this hotel in MN. We stayed here for one night for our anniversary at the end of June. We walked everywhere. It's a couple blocks to Oceanaire (fresh seafood), and a few blocks more to Nicollet Mall area (bars and cute restaurants with outdoor... More

If there's a Kimpton where we're going, we are always going to stay there! The Grand is another great hotel - the service is good, it's always in an interesting building, the rooms are large, the bathrooms are good and they're always in a good location. The Grand is no exception! We had a fab couple of nights here -... More

I stayed at this hotel after driving from Chicago with my dog. The staff was so friendly and welcoming and the cold tea was exactly what I needed after a long drive. When I got to the room they had my favourite pillows and a note waiting for me, as well as a dog bed, bowls, bottled water and doggy... More

Kimoton has a good name that means quality stays and great treatment and this is no exception. This is by far my favorite hotel in Minneapolis when I travel for work or pleasure. There is a great little bar in the lobby for a quick drink, the staff are pleasant and often remember your name and the bed is beyond... More

I couldn't be more impressed. I work with Oracle and was recommend to the hotel by a former employee. The Rooms Division Manager Geoff Roether was fantastic and worked with me on rates. Tenzin, Jeffrey and Illy gave me recommendations of where to go, what to see. Everyone was great. The Gym blew my mind. 3rd floor had racquetball, squash... More

I was expecting this great hotel, since it is one of the top in mini, but I was greatly let down. Along with the rest of my family that was staying there was total of 15 of us. Poor service, the rooms were nothing spectacular and I was too tall for them and I am only 5ft 9in and the... More

Although the rooms are a bit dated, they are perfectly clean and comfortable. Love the beds—well, for the most part. In our particular room, the bed had a footboard with large, heavy wooden posts on either side. Both my husband and I managed to whack our thighs into it numerous times (he has bruises on both legs to show for... More

Hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of everything you can walk to in about 10 minutes. Target Field, Vikings Stadium, light rail system, Target center... all easily in walking distance. Hotel is also part of the skyway system, don't even have to go outside on a miserable weather day. Hotel staff is very nice. I had... More

The Kimpton brand does not disappoint. We enjoyed a great few nights here, utilizing the valet parking, enjoying the bar upon return from the night out, and loving the quirky decor! The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathrobes are a hoot. So nice.

Dear Danette G, I'm so glad we didn't disappoint! It's fantastic that you had time to take advantage of the amenities we have to offer. Aren't those bathrobes so fun?! We embrace our Kimpton quirkiness! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience. I hope you'll be our guest again in the near future! Regards, Hayden Lingerfelt More
