“Nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Pleasant hotel, lobby smells amazing! Rooms are nice and clean and so they should be at the rate you pay for a room here. They have a gym on the 3rd floor and a swimming pool in the basement, really enjoyed the pool and steam room and sauna. Beds are nice and comfy. Parking is in the Crown Plaza hotel across from the hotel if you are not using the Grands valet service. Our TV wouldn't shut off luckily this was fixed by the time we returned from our day out. Was a bit disappointed that we were not upgraded considering we signed up for their membership thingy. But we did get $10 credit towards the bar. We went for a night cap drink at the bar, nice bar and the bartender was nice and friendly. Would stay again.

Green Features: It was nice to see they had a set of dog bowls with water in them by the entrance for those with dogs.

Dear Ange1983,

I appreciate the lovely review! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the scent of the lobby. I know it seems a bit strange, but we actually have a scent machine that creates the pleasing aroma. I'm glad you noticed! Isn't the gym so impressive? Lifetime Fitness owns and operates it and it is their elite club in the twin cities. We are so lucky to have it in the hotel! I really appreciate the comments about cleanliness. Our housekeeping team takes so much pride in their work. They are absolutely amazing! I'm glad you enjoyed our lounge, The SIX15 Room. Our bartenders are truly the best in town. Thanks again for this stellar write-up. See you next time.

Regards,

Hayden Lingerfelt

Rooms are superb and modern! Very central downtown location. Usual Kimpton amenities are present throughout. Always take advantage of the usual morning coffee and tea setup in the lobby before heading out, especially on a cold MSP morning!

From great attentive valet, to attentive front desk staff, everything was A+.

Take advantage of Free wine tasting hour from 5-6pm in lobby and TAKE advantage of Free daily Health Club membership at Lifetime Fitness in building truly a five-star health club. Great steam room, basketball court, pool, etc..... Saw some vip's (Baltimore Orioles) when I was working out.

Splurge and get a Corner Suite, at nearly 700 sq. ft. With two large HD tv's and dining area, we even hosted couples up to our room for the surprise weekend.

Housekeeper fetched the ice we needed.

Lastly, I told the GM and front desk staff it was my wife's 50th weekend and they Sent up a chilled bottle of champagne and goodies unannounced to her:))

That is keeping people happy and wanting to come back!

Get the Plimpton Rewards at check in so Wi-Fi is Free and you can save $32 a night in Valet if you have another nearby place to park as twin cities area residents, we did.

Thanks Plimpton and Grand Hotel.

Dear Froomcat,

Happy belated birthday to your wife! I'm so glad that the birthday celebration was a hit. Thank you for the excellent comments! I think you were in one of our lovely Luxury Suites. I'm so glad that the suite was spacious enough to host some of your friends for the celebration. Let me know if you'd like to stay again for your next special occasion. I'm happy to assist you with the reservation and other arrangements. Thanks for this A+ review!

This hotel was superb! We had such a lovely time staying here and recommend it highly to anyway visiting Minneapolis.

It's well located for the downtown area, easy walking distance to the business and convention area as well as shopping. There is valet parking available and the package we had booked included this in the tariff which was great.

The rooms are very comfortable, lovely toiletries in the bathroom and plenty of space. The evening wine hour is a nice way to wind down after the day too. Coffee in the lobby in the morning too, excellent.

Dear ejw3039,

I'm thrilled that you had such a lovely time with us! Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm glad that you found our location to be convenient. It is so nice to be connected to the skyway with easy access to all of downtown (especially in the winter when it's super chilly out!!). Thank you for mentioning the luxurious Bigelow bathroom amenities. We often get excellent feedback about them. Thank you for partaking in wine hour. It's a great perk that all Kimpton hotels offer daily. I really apprecaite you taking the time to write about us. See you next time!

Great downtown location. The staff are wonderful, from the valets, bellhops, check-in to the maintenance staff. We traveled with a elderly friend who needed handicap accessibility and found the accommodations excellent and the staff cheerfully helpful. Rooms were very nice size, well-decorated and very clean. We were very impressed and would stay there again.

There's a very nice and helpful staff here and the rooms are a nice size, clean, updated and tasteful. The location is very central and within walking distance of most things you'd want to do in Minneapolis. It has a nice bar in the lobby. I haven't eaten at the restaurants in the hotel except for a buffet breakfast which was okay but not memorable. If you sign up as a loyalty customer, which is free, you get complimentary internet service at Kimpton hotels and a $10 credit for use in the hotel. You might get a room upgrade too if it's available.

Green Features: Guests may choose not to have towels changed every day.

Dear W L,

Thank you for this stellar write-up! It seems that The Grand suits you well! I hope that you'll be our guest whenever you're in Minneapolis. I'm glad that you had a chance to visit our bar, The SIX15 Room. Be sure to try some of the delicious food from our chef, Kris Koch next time you visit. He does all food for the SIX15 Room and in-room dining. He is so creative and talented, so I assure you no disappointment. Thank you for mentioning the Kimpton loyalty program. It is free to sign up and there are so many perks! Thanks again for this fantastic review. See you next time!

Hotel is down town and centrally located. Room was large and clean. Very large bathroom. Plenty of towels. No comfortable chair in the room other than a desk chair. No turndown service or evening chocolate. Parking very expensive. Staff exceedly friendly, helpful and nice (all). They didn't clean room until 4PM one of the days we stayed (4 nights). Breakfast in the restraurants should be MISSED - many much better places within a two block walk.

Dear PsychSanAntonio,

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience! I'm pleased that you appreciated the size of the guest room and bathroom. We are so lucky to have spacious accommodations, which are hard to come by in most downtown hotels. We do actually offer turndown service with chocolates upon request. You can let the front desk know at check-in next time you're with us. I agree that the parking is pricey, but I assure you the cost is in line with all other downtown hotels. I will pass your comments about breakfast on to the management of the restaurant. It is owned and managed by Lifetime. I really appreciate your kind words about the staff! They are truly the best and I will share your comments with them. Thank you for being our guest and we hope to see you again!

Regards,

Hayden Lingerfelt
