Spacious and elegant public rooms, with high ceilings and gorgeous wood surroundings. An inviting check in are where you sit down to be welcomed. Stately guest rooms and a friendly staff complete...

Does this company have any bad hotels? service was great, folks were super friendly ("Minnesota Nice"), and of course, free wifi (for Karma members) and a wine happy hour! Nothing better than getting back from a day full of meetings and having a glass of wine greet you in the lobby!!!

The green initiatives of this hotel drew my attention, and upon checking in, they surpassed my expectations. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with an oversized bathroom, A door card on my pillow informed me that I could receive a $5 voucher for use in the hotel for each day that I chose not to have housekeeping services, which...

I have stayed at The Grand 6 or 7 times over the last few years. It is very well maintained with a nice athletic club. Beautiful rooms. Fun lobby Bar. Nice meeting facilities for a small group or small wedding. Conveniently located near Nicolet Mall and great restaurants. Highly recommended!

We go out of our way to stay at Kimpton hotels, especially on first-time visits where we know we'll be able to count on Kimpton's high standards, and did on this first trip to Minneapolis. We were hugely impressed by the quality of the restoration of this turn of the century building. One of the things I really like about... More

My first time to this hotel since others were sold out. Boy, was I impressed! Upon entry I was greeted friendly with two gentlemen that opened to doors for me.
