Just returned from a weekend at the Grand. It was great! The lobby was ok, nothing special. Our check-in was very smooth. They had us down for the wrong rate but changed it no problem once I pointed it out. The guest rooms are outstanding. Really on par with many supposedly fancier hotels I have stayed at. Immaculately clean and the bathrooms were super - huge with ample towels and amenities. There were some extra touches we liked too - free shoe shine and free wireless internet. Both came in handy. The bed wasn't super comfy, but the windows had great blinds and curtains that did a great job of keeping the light out so we were able to sleep in. The gym was huge and mostly empty when I saw it. The hotel is really close to the light rail so it was easy to get to the airport. I had stayed at Chambers last month on a different trip to Minneapolis, and I have to say, that although the two hotels have a very different feel to them, for half the price, I'd pick the Grand every time.
