I had finally bought a ticket to Minneapolis to see the Vikings. It only took me 19 years. I decided to stay somewhere classy and after doing some study I settled with the Grand Hotel. This hotel has class. The foyer on level 1 is open and inviting. The staff on front desk are professional and always willing to assist with any question.
Located in the foyer area is the Six15 Room. A relaxing little bar perfect for knock off drinks or a few drinks for late arrivals. Also around behind the bar (quite hidden) are some very comfy sofas and tables with big screen TVs, perfect for food and drinks.
I stayed on level 12 in a twin queen room, and after coming from San Diego it felt like royalty in the room. Plenty of room to walk around in, plenty of solid dark timber drawers to put all your clothing in ( still smell new). Full length mirrors to check your apparel. The bathroom is large, clean and classy. Beds were comfy.
On level 3 they have a full gymnasium. Not a small gym, but a big open gym. Plenty of gear in here to leave you feeling pumped.
For getting around we used the light rail line which is a quick few minutes walk to the hotel. Takes you from Nicollet Mall, the Metrodome through to the airport and Mall of America. All for a few bucks. In saying this we easily walked to the football at the Metrodome from the hotel.
The experience I had will leave me with an impression of Minneapolis as being a very friendly, romantic city to visit. Highly Recommended!
