We stayed here for three nights. Our room was large with a great view, and also super clean. The room was also very quiet, which I really appreciate. I have stayed at Kimpton hotels before, and always appreciate the amenities that they offer. We were able to walk to Target Field, Nicolett Mall, Stone Arch Bridge and a variety restaurants... More

I generally stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and I state this so people can better judge my frame of reference. I received an email from the manager prior to my stay asking if I had any special requests and welcoming me to the hotel. This has never happened to me before. I asked for a quiet room with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights this July. The hotel is located centrally downtown and easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars. We had a top floor corner room and it was incredible. Super comfy bed and huge bathroom with a tv in the wall above the tub. Oversized glass shower was nice too. If you are used to Kimpton... More

Loved this hotel! Huge room and bathroom, great service from the staff. We enjoyed the free cocktail hour, had some watermelon margaritas. Rooms were quiet and comfy. My only disappointed was not having a view, but very small issue considering the wonderful room and hotel overall.

Dear ilovewarmweather, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! I'm pleased that you enjoyed the room accommodations and our friendly staff. It's so true, our rooms and bathrooms are unusually large for a downtown hotel. Thanks for joining us for our complimentary nightly wine hour. Aren't those watermelon margaritas are delicious?! Next time you book with us,... More

I travel to Minneapolis at least once a year and have made this my go-to hotel. The rooms are tastefully appointed (manly!) and the bathrooms are huge. In touch members get a $10 raid the minibar credit or a free drink at the bar. Social hour with complementary wine every evening. Nice bath robes to chill in after the workday.... More

Dear Ncbluedot, Thank you for making The Grand your Minneapolis home away from home! Thank you for mentioning that our rooms are tastefully appointed. We completed a full renovation when Kimpton took over. We couldn't be happier with the design teams selections. They did a fantastic job preserving the historic and somewhat masculine feel of the building (used to be... More

Nice location and staff, but our room was a cave. No natural light; only window opened into interior courtyard. And only one side of the bed had a nightstand and reading light. At this price point, we expected more.

Dear Sptoottoot, I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. I regret that you were disappointed with your room. Based on your description, I suspect that you stayed in one of very few atrium facing queen deluxe rooms. These rooms are not representative of the bulk of our rooms. We have twelve different room types, including three categories... More

I stayed two nights in the Grand Hotel and I loved it. I travel often for work and this hotel is unlike any average hotel. From the decor in the lobby to the hotel room, it was all well done. The lobby had the look of a boutique hotel. The rooms were lush! I loved the comfy bath robes. The... More

The staff of The Grand Hotel Minneapolis went above and beyond in making our 25th anniversary extra special. From a magnificent room upgrade to wine and cheese, this hotel made our night amazing. Everyone we came in contact at the hotel really went the extra mile for us. Beautiful lobby, rooms and people! Thanks for making our anniversary special.

I stayed here for one night and I found the experience great. The staff were friendly and the restaurant/bar on the first level is nice as well. My only grouse with this place was that they didn't have the default Airport transfers many other hotels in the Downtown area provide.

My husband and I decided to head downtown for our anniversary and booked a room at The Grand Hotel for one night. We had researched hotels on the internet and this one seemed to fit the bill of "more romantic than business oriented".
