Arrived late (around 10PM). Room was large, beds were comfortable. The room service was excellent. Typically excellent Kimpton hotel. I would stay here again. The closet in the room was huge too. I am a loyal Kimpton customer, and they never fail to impress. On the very same trip, we stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Cleveland, this Kimpton hotel... More

This was my second stay at the fabulous Grand Hotel Minneapolis. After my initial solo stay earlier this month (August) on a business trip, I deliberately returned with my husband so he could experience this fabulous hotel. He loved it as much as I did. The hotel is a wonderful home away from home. It is beautiful with all the... More

The hotel has competent staff, delivers papers/internet/coffee in early am/room service etc. nicely. The furnishings in our suite were a bit old fashioned and tired, but that's not a big deal. In all ways, but one, a perfectly satisfactory experience. The one problem is a bit delicate to describe, but let me try. There must be a common standard, both... More

The Grand Hotel was absolutely lovely. We really enjoyed our stay here! This is a very beautiful hotel. The lobby is pretty, but also very chic. They preserved the elegance with the old building, without being married to an outdated style. The hotel's decorator did a great job choosing fun and funky furniture that paired beautifully with the grand style... More

The location was perfect! I was extremely impressed by how clean everything was, and all the staff were very friendly. The room was quiet, the bed and linens were comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless. The shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were a nice touch; while I would have enjoyed a few more toiletries, the staff was prompt and friendly... More

This downtown hotel was the perfect location to explore restaurants and walk over to the Vikings stadium. Enjoyed the soft plush bed and ample space! Went down one evening to enjoy some complimentary wine and visit with other hotel guests. Hotel was very clean and staff were pleasant to deal with. Would love to stay again some day.

The Grand Hotel is an old hotel that Kimpton has refurbished, maintaining its beauty and - dare I say - grandeur. It evokes another time, but with thoroughly modern amenities and the Kimpton sense of humor as expressed in touches like animal print robes. The good: The staff was outstanding. Friendly, professional, and helpful. The rooms are well-sized and nicely... More

This is one of the best Kimptons I have stayed in. The location is great - close to many downtown attractions (and there's a lot more to Minneapolis than I thought). The hotel gives you free access to a full-size gym and a proper lap pool. The bar area in the lobby is small but cozy. We did not eat... More

Dear GrouchoDE, Wow! Thank you for commenting that The Grand is one of the best Kimpton's you've visited. That is quite the compliment given that we have some serious competition with our other beautiful hotels. Isn't the Life Time Athletic Club impressive?!

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
