As you open the door, you find yourself greeted by a lavish room with an absolute unique take of this regions "local" flavor - zebra collared plush robes, a faux gator skinned lounge chair, a picture of a strong buck on a pillow. This style may not be good for everyone, but those who look to feel like a global... More

Stayed here the week before my wedding and had a very great experience. The hotel is nice and cozy with some very great amenities. I was able to get a amazing massage at the spa as well as a great work out at the gym that is attached to the hotel. We also ordered room service and movies! My now... More

This is the only hotel I will ever stay at downtown Minne. Very comfortable and accommodating. The beds and pillows were divine and the character is something you don't find everywhere. Herringbone wallpaper, crown molding, clean rooms and spacious bathrooms. The amount of mirrors was especially nice and great for "girls weekend." The cucumber water at check-in is fabulously refreshing... More

Best service/staff!!! From the moment they greet you at your car upon your arrival until they bring you your car outside the front door when you leave - have never felt as welcomed by such attentive staff and services!!!! We will definitely stay at the Grand Hotel EVERY time we visit Minneapolis.

I stayed at this property twice within a two week span. I guess that says a lot right there considering there are many choices in Minneapolis of places to stay. What brought me to the hotel was that it was a Kimpton and 94% of the time I have really good experiences with them and this one was no different.... More

Have been visiting the Grand for over 7years. Loved how this hotel has evolved. We were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary and got spoilt rotten! Decor in room, large, really comfy bed, 12th floor next to presidential suite, multi head shower! Decadent The piece de resistance was the courtesy bottle of champagne in our room when we returned from dinner.... More

The Grand Hotel Minneapolis is the best Boutique Hotel I've stayed in! The hotel is beautiful, the staff is kind and helpful, willing to go above and beyond any way they can! They offered free wine from 5pm-6pm (we were there on Saturday and Sunday) They upgraded us without request. Also a great value! I filled out an experience survey... More

Stayed at The Grand Hotel Minneapolis this past weekend. We made the trip from Winnipeg to see James Taylor and were extremely excited.

My wife and I stayed at the Grand for four days over Halloween weekend. Very nice upscale hotel but with a casual ambiance. Our room was nicely appointed with an awesome bathroom, great bed and view, etc. Property is well managed and clean. Location is great--near Nicollet Mall and close to shopping, restaurants and the light rail system. Fantastic fitness... More
