My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary by going on a road trip to Minneapolis. After reading the reviews we decided to stay at The Grand Hotel, and it didn't disappoint.

The check-in process was not as easy as some hotels, but certainly not bad. The rooms were clean. Ours was cramped and was not a good option to sit and read, but there was great seating in the lobby, so it did not really matter. They have a terrific excercise area, so if that is important, this is a great... More

My boyfriend and I stayed two weekends in a row, before and after a surgery. The room was fantastic and we enjoyed the Six15 Room happy hour and the salmon in Rare. The best perk is the staff. Always very kind and most helpful. The gym is fantastic. The second stay was on our way home from surgery at Mayo... More

My fiancé and I decided to get married on short notice. We'd been debating eloping to Napa Valley or Vegas and finally decided to tie the knot in town on Good Friday. I booked a small suite at The Grand and the initial plan was to get married at the courthouse and come back to the hotel for dinner with... More

My husband and I loved this hotel! We had a corner suite on the 14th floor and loved our experience at this hotel. Our room was very clean and very quiet, which are always my main concerns when staying in a hotel. Even though there were people in the rooms around us, we never heard them, well, except for the...

Kimpton took over a building that isn't all that Grand. It has a GRAND gym on the third floor that is a highlight. And we found the staff to be overall excellent....From Jeffrey at the front desk to Dave at the bar who really does work magic with a shaker. The place itself.....meh. It's sort of a contemporary redo of... More

Dear Renztem13, Thank you for taking the time to comment on your experience. I'm disappointed that you weren't impressed with the décor, but understand that it is unique and may not appeal to everyone. We did a complete renovation of the building about four years ago when Kimpton took over. The designers focused on preserving the historic and somewhat masculine... More

this an intimate boutique hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The property is a little dated but the furnishings and the service are well done. The rooms are pretty small but they have done a nice job with upkeep and none of the normal issues with older hotels was present. I did not dine in any of the restaurants but did enjoy... More

Dear Robert J, Thank you for visiting The Grand and taking the time to write about us! Before the building was converted into a hotel in the late 1990's, it was the iconic Minneapolis Athletic Club. We are actually celebrating the 100th anniversary of the building this year! We completely renovated four years ago when Kimpton took over. The design... More

Staff was so nice, and the bar in the lobby is a fun place to be, excellent drinks and fun bar food. The hotel is close to everything and linked by sky-walk, which is nice considering... More
