Smack in the middle of downtown Minneapolis. You can't get a better location. Nice handsome , very good value smallish hotel. Rooms were clean, albeit small, good clean bathroom. Overnight parking was $35.00. I was here only one night, so I didn't do many things in and around the hotel. Staff was very helpful. I would return

There are places where the rooms are nice, the drinks are great, and the staff is mediocre or snooty. There are places where the situation is exactly reversed. Then there is the Grand Hotel Minneapolis. sigh. makes me want to go back right now. I know, you are thinking, Minneapolis? in the winter? are you crazed? no. it's the sheets,... More

This hotel is smack dab right in the middle of downtown. There is also a light rail station two blocks away if you need to take for the Airport, Gopher Stadium, or Mall of America. The hotel itself is beautiful and well kept. It is a Kimpton Hotel and keeps the same quirky theme as other Kimptoms. There is a... More

The suite was lovely overall. Nice sized living room area with a seating area with a TV, bar area, & a big closet. The bedroom was accessed from the living room by a small opening between the 2 rooms, with the bathroom off the bedroom. Lovely oversized bathroom with a tub/shower, storage cabinet. The only closet was in the living... More

I stayed for five nights and was very impressed. This is a boutique hotel with lots of character and local flavor. Although the price was a little higher than other hotels it was a great value. The hotel includes a full gym membership, a nice happy hour with non-alcoholic choices, great coffee and hot chocolate in the morning, is on... More

I stayed here for business for two nights and had a wonderful stay. Check-in was a breeze and my room was very spacious. For whatever reason, I was given an ADA room so it was HUGE. One drawback was I had no view at all but this did cut down on street noise so for that I was happy. The... More

Dear AlwaysOnTheGo, I'm so glad that you had a wonderful stay with us! Thank you for taking the time to write about it. From your description, I conclude that you stayed in one of our atrium ADA rooms. As you mentioned, they do lack a view, but they are super quiet and great for a good night's sleep. I am... More

We stayed one night on the 15th floor of this nice hotel. 30th Anniversary! Staff was friendly at the door and a little aloof at the check in. Parking was across the street which was found to be linked underground but you would have to be a mole to know it ahead of time. Room was safe, as access was... More

My husband and I, along with my two sisters had the pleasure of staying at the Grand for two nights. Although the entrance left a bit to be desired the lobby was impressive and interesting. We visited the lobby bar one evening and received excellent service from their bartender. The only downside was that they had advertised a winter cocktail... More

This hotel is in the heart of Minneapolis. I arrived around midnight, and the doorman was waiting and very helpful. Check in was easy, and I enjoyed the flavoured water in the lobby. The lobby had several areas for waiting and gathering. The hotel bar was intimate, and we actually held a business meeting in a secluded area. There is... More
