We had four couples from various parts of the US meet at the GrandStay in Luverne for a larger family event in the area. Our time at the GrandStay went perfectly in every way. I got one of the 2 room suites so I could have groups of people over to visit and the place was beyond my expectations. Our room had a full sized kitchen (except oven) - big refrigerator and dishwasher - and a long multi-purpose counter-top island between the kitchen and the living room so we were able to do more than we had prepared for to do. We had 25 to 30 people stop by over 3 days and all were clearly impressed with the Grandstay. We are Hilton Diamond level so we are frequent travelers and we relate this property to a Hampton Inn but nicer in most every way. Now - people make a business, especially in hotels, and the folks at the Luverne GrandStay were all so very nice. Being a group event I had numerous telephone calls directly with the hotel prior to our stay and I can't overstate how nice and helpful everyone I talked with was to me. Our group had many interactions with the front desk, breakfast, and housekeeping staff and all were exceptionally nice and helpful to each of us. Even if a Hilton property was in the area I would stay here instead.
