I like Kimpton hotels and so I try to stay at one whenever I'm on a business trip. I liked the Grand Hotel quite a bit. The rooms are very big and the staff was wonderful. The location can't be beat if you have downtown business. The only thing that disappointed me was my room view looked out on a... More

We made an impulse weekend trip to Minneapolis and got a great rate at the Grand Hotel. The staff was great from the valet to the front desk to the bartender, who got us a reservation on a Saturday night at a great restaurant nearby. The room was very large and the bathroom even larger, with a huge tub and... More

Kimpton hotels are simply the best. We were given a corner room, nice view of skyscrapers, didn't notice any street noise. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and they delivered a nice snack tray while we were out. Wine hour always nice. Comfortable bed, wonderful bath with t.v. in tub. My only dislike is the dispensers in bath for soap,... More

Dear Michelle A, I love that you are a fan of Kimpton! That brings a smile to my face! I'm delighted that we were a part of your husband's birthday celebration. I'm sorry you were inconvenienced by the pump dispensers. We use those instead of the small bottles because they significantly cut down on waste. It's part of our mission... More

I visited friends over New Year's and stayed here because my boyfriend and I brought our dogs. We all loved it. When we arrived each dog (we have two) had their own bed and bowls set up. Of course they're so used to sharing beds at home that they snuggled up in one bed most of the time! It was... More

We live in the Twin Cities, but decided to be a tourist in our own town for a weekend...with our dog. We were really happy with all aspects of our stay here. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, with staff immediately doting on our dog (she got her own treat bag!). We got a two room suite, which was... More

Nice hotel in downtown Minneapolis on the skyway. We stayed to celebrate a birthday and thought the hotel had a nice historical feel. The room was intimate with a large mirror that added to our excitement. Suggest you sign up for Kimpton Karma prior to booking a room for added perks.

We decided to have a mini getaway to start the new year, and there was a nice rate for the Grand Hotel, so even though we live in Minneapolis, we went for it!
