There is a reason that the Grand Hotel is rated the #1 hotel in Minneapolis. It all started with confirmation emailed to me a month early and a couple of days early with upgrade offers. When I checked in everything was ready and an hour later I received a call in my room to make sure everything was good. The...

I stayed for five nights in November. My room was a spacious corner room with king sized, and very comfortable, bed. I wasn't overwhelmed by the service at the hotel - I accepted the offer of a coffee maker for my room but it was never delivered; I had to go and find a staff member to help me with...

Hello Mr. Bruce_Oh, I am so sorry to hear your experience was less than perfect. The complimentary wine and goodies you mention actually happen in our lobby during social hour each evening from 5pm-6pm. I will follow up with my operations team specifically on your experience as this is not a typical 'Grand' experience. I would love to connect directly...

We always try to stay at Kimpton hotels when we travel because of their great atmosphere and wonderful service - the Grand Hotel is no exception! This is the second time we have stayed here for extended weekend around Vikings game. Walking distance to everywhere, and with the Skyway connecting directly to the hotel, you don't even have to go...

The friendly desk staff was welcoming and able/willing to accommodate our early arrival. The room was clean, spacious, and had the luxurious touches that makes a stay in a Kimpton such a treat. The hotel is conveniently located near transit, restaurants, and sporting venues. Free use of the Lifetime Athletic Club in the same building makes taking time for health...

The hotel is beautiful and has a great atmosphere. It is in a great location for sporting events, great food, or just exploring Minneapolis. The staff is very professional and the food is phenomenal. The fitness center is state of the art and the spa is the best one I've ever been too. My stay here was fantastic!

We've stayed at the Kimpton Grand a few times this year. Both visits were for pleasure so they were built around weekends. We love everything about this place... location, staff, amenities, restaurant, lobby bar, health club, rooms, everything. The front desk staff is always very helpful and attentive. The person who checked us in most recently was clearly very knowledgable...

My family and I stayed here 2 nights during Thanksgiving weekend. We were pleased with the customer service and overall hotel amenities. The only issue was the pool. I have two children, ages 5 and 7 and it was not a kid-friendly pool, in my opinion. It was a part of the fitness center, not the hotel and was designed...

Such a beautiful property & room; Kimpton never fails to impress - and that why I'm a fan for life. Top quality across the board. I don't believe the word "No" exists in their staff's vocabulary. A special thank-you to Wendy at the front desk & Sean the bartender for making the experience a truly fantastic one!!

“Ask for 2 queen beds if you're traveling with a family. We ended up with a King bed for 2 adults and 2 children, so although the beds were very comfortable, it was a little tight for 4 and my poor husband ended up sleeping on the chair and floor. In retrospect we should have probably asked for a different room with 2 beds but also want to note it was not offered to us a check-in. Great bathrooms though.”
