We've stayed at this hotel twice, over two years. Our experience is informed by the fact that we travel with young kids, so we have specific needs. There are no connecting rooms here, so it makes it harder than a standard hotel to stay with kids. As a result, we need a suite with a door that closes between the...

Dear adk, Thank you for providing this feedback during your most recent stay with us! My sincerest apologies on the delayed check-in and trying to find a resolution that would work best for your family. Sadly, with the historic age of our building and the layouts being different in every room, yes we usually do not guarantee the layout of...

One can always forgive a blown light bulb here; even an alien hair in the bathroom there - almost anything really, provided there is any sense of personal service that is genuine, and caring. To be made feel superfluous from the moment you check-in, and then to be reduced in size by staff who think that you are nothing better...

A very nice hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Easy walking distance to anywhere you would want to go. a ten minute walk or so to Target Field. Very close to great dining (Manny's Steakhouse).

The service at this property is just impeccable.

We signed up to join their hotel program about a year ago but finally got an opportunity to try a Kimpton hotel after they sent me a birthday discount bonus. Stay in this hotel. You won't regret it. But the secret is checking-in as a Karma member. We called to see if we could check-in early & they accommodated. A...

I brought my daughters for a visit on campus. This hotel is in the heart of the city-- close to everything! The accommodations were very comfortable-- spacious rooms, comfy beds-- couldn't ask for more. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return when we are back in Minneapolis. I highly recommend Kimpton Grand!

If you want to feel like you've walked into the 1980's this is the place for you. The bathroom was huge and the decor was rich and dark. It was clean but not sparkling- felt a bit tired. The gym is amazing- racquetball, full basketball court, indoor running track plus the standard items. No coffee or amenities in the rooms...
