Far from the normal chain hotels: Hilton, Marriott, et al., the Grand hotel is a breath of fresh air. The hotel brings back elegance from years ago without losing the modern world. The rooms are uniquely appointed and comfortable. All in all, the best of multiple hotels I have stayed in in Minneapolis.

Our hotel stay was lovely. We were asked if we wanted to upgrade right at check in. I'm glad we upgraded because the huge bathroom was breath taking. Lastly, the room service was fantastic. We would love to stay here again.

The rooms are great, the people are great, and the extra amenities, including a wine social and access to Lifetime Fitness, make it even better. This place deserves at least a top 5 finish, if not the #1 finish they have (at the time of this review). You should book in here.

Beautiful corner room with tall ceilings. The bathroom was great, equipped with a large soaking tub with a TV above it. The staff was very friendly, and they even gave us complimentary champagne, chocolate, and strawberries for our anniversary. I definitely would stay here again!

Large, attractive room in a quiet hotel. Very large bathroom with separate shower and tub and a separate toilet room. The room's window on the sixth floor faced an office building that was very close and had no black-out shade (minor detail). Decked out with a bed and bowls for my dog. Friendly, helpful staff. Parking is a bit steep... More
