Needs Improving

Booked 2 rooms 3 months before we travelled and when we checked in we were on different floors. I asked to be on the same floor the staff said all rooms were booked up and that was the only option. We were not given keys to the mini bar at check-in and had to go back to the front desk to get them. The same evening we were looking for a good restaurant and were told about some close by but the desk clerk did not even mention the steak house in the hotel. The next day my niece drank half of a sprite from the mini bar and found out it had been expired for 6 months. We found 5 more items in her room and 10 items in our minibar that were expired. We called the front desk and they gave us a $25 room service credit, but when we checked out, I had to remind them to use it on my bill. This hotel is clean and in a nice location, but overall the staff, the amenities, and the service were well below expectations. I would not recommend this hotel.

great stay for weekend getaway

Super friendly and helpful staff. Great location, within walking distance of Metrodome and many great restaurants. Walkable to art museums and sculpture garden. Very comfortable room, despite the awkward layout and dead space.

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!).

None

Service was not very friendly, noisy neighbors, confusing parking. Will stay across the street at the Crowne Plaza next time, like we always try to do. :)
