It has been a while since we stayed here, so there may be some differences. My husband and I stayed for two nights after dropping our daughter at college. If you like the boutique type hotel this would be your choice. Check was average, nothing special, but nothing disappointing either. Room was okay, a little cave like. Good views are...

Dear kcWI, Thank you for being our guest and taking the time to share your opinion of the hotel. I regret that we failed to leave an impression on you. Average isn't acceptable. It is always our goal to go above and beyond to personalize our guests experiences, so I am so disappointed that we weren't successful. If you have...

This is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. It is very close to Metro Transit stations. The facility was incredible, it was Gatsby-esque in the decor. With luxurious rooms combined with great views, this is a top-tier hotel in a great city.

Dear Steven E, Wow, that is quite the compliment! I really appreciate it. It's fantastic that you had such an amazing stay! I love how you described the décor as Gatsby-esque. It's perfect.

My first visit to Minneapolis and I stay at the Grand, a Kimpton Hotel. As I have explored this hotel brand over the years and in several cities, the one thing I can say is that they are consistent. I had a king corner room on the top floor. It was spacious and clean. The rich dark wood and the...

There are a lot of good things about this hotel. The rooms are quite large; the bathroom was huge. The bed was very comfortable. There are tons of outlets, which makes it easy to keep everything charged. The lobby is quite nice but rather dark and it looks a bit somber. There is a pretty lively bar, though, with very...

We booked a great deal last minute for the Grand Hotel. While we were a bit nervous as we arrived (there was terribly loud construction going on nearby), our room was a perfect oasis. Quiet and comfortable. Our dog and our toddler were warmly welcomed. Our dog was given a treat each time she returned and she was treated to...

Arrived late (around 10PM). Room was large, beds were comfortable. The room service was excellent. Typically excellent Kimpton hotel. I would stay here again. The closet in the room was huge too.

The hotel has competent staff, delivers papers/internet/coffee in early am/room service etc. nicely. The furnishings in our suite were a bit old fashioned and tired, but that's not a big deal. In all ways, but one, a perfectly satisfactory experience. The one problem is a bit delicate to describe, but let me try. There must be a common standard, both...

The Grand Hotel was absolutely lovely. We really enjoyed our stay here! This is a very beautiful hotel. The lobby is pretty, but also very chic.
