There are places where the rooms are nice, the drinks are great, and the staff is mediocre or snooty. There are places where the situation is exactly reversed. Then there is the Grand Hotel Minneapolis. sigh. makes me want to go back right now. I know, you are thinking, Minneapolis? in the winter? are you crazed? no. it's the sheets, the bathrooms, the staff, the food, the SERVICE, the warmth both of staff who help you without being asked AND the decor. the fireplace in the lobby. the laughter of patrons. spacious, charming, crystal clean, worth the money, and not that much. here's the thing. in the lobby? at the back? coffee, decaf, hot tea, and HOT CHOCOLATE. with chocolate chips to stir in AND MARSHMALLOWS. for FREE. i love this place. it is right downtown, valet parking, heated pool, all the amenities, and did I mention the staff? loved them. made us feel so welcome, and that, my friends, coming from the hospitable South? is saying something. also, right around the corner from the HEN HOUSE. breakfast on stools with stout.
