Top beds in the industry

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Grand. The property is exceptional in all categories. From Guest services to the lounge staff to the excellent beds. The rooms are nicely appointed. I recommend this property to anyone staying in downtown Mpls for any occasion, from a date night with your wife or a Vikings football game

A great stay

Hotel more than met expectations. Great location and caring staff. Access to the university was easy and the car was always ready when requested. The price through Orbitz was astounding and I will stay here again.

Faultless stay, faultless hotel

I'm very pleased to give the Grand Hotel Minneapolis top marks. Before arriving, I had assumed that it might be slightly 'stuffy' - but how wrong I was. Staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming from the moment I checked in. Room was spotless and well equipped (the only thing it lacked for me was a coffee maker or kettle). Hotel facilities were well above average: the limited opening hours of the business centre were off-set by free in-room internet access (just register for loyalty scheme, but this is free) and understand business centre facilities are in any case in process of being improved. The 'wine tasting' hour is just one example of how guests were made to feel welcome (and not as though they are merely being squeezed constantly for an extra pound or dollar) . Other hotel chains please take note: I will be actively seeking out Kimpton's hotels in future, as they clearly know how to ensure that their guests leave not merely content, but happy.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Band Box Diner, 729 S 10th Street. Great for a good value cooked breakfast, in an authentic 1930s diner. About 10-15 mins walk away from the Grand (but that helps burn off the calories!).

Love this Hotel!!!

This is located downtown Minneapolis. We pulled right up to the valet parking and they unloaded our car and took our luggage up to the lobby. We arrived prior to check-in but the staff let us check in early and even gave us a room upgrade! I love how they have a wine reception at 5:00 pm. We also signed up on-line to be Kimpton members and received free wi-fi. The rooms were big and bright. Very clean and very comfy. I would recommend paying the extra $5 to $10 to use their valet parking instead of using a public lot. Just being able to call down and in 15 minutes they bring the car up for you is awesome.

We went to the Dakota Jazz Club which you can get to easily through the inside walk-ways or a couple of blocks walk out side. There is also good shopping along the walk-ways.

Wedding Bliss

We got this hotel for our wedding weekend. We wanted a room big enough to accomodate the hair stylist, make-up artist and entire bridal party for getting ready...and the room was HUGE! We had plenty of room for everything. The room/hotel was super modern and clean! Love it! Only downside was loading and unloading were a little difficult with the busy street, but other than that it's an A+ hotel! The hotel was so close to food, shopping, entertainment and the major site! Would highly recommend it to anyone!

Business trip

I was completely satisfied and would definitely stay there again. The room was clean and stylish. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions and toiletries I had forgotten. You get a $5 credit for the restaurant if you decline maid service.
