The Grand Hotel Minneapolis Review

: Wondering where Billy Joel and Lenny Kravitz stay when they're in town? Wonder no more. This 1912 building, the former Minneapolis Athletic Club, is like a private gentleman's club, quiet and discreet. The 140 guest rooms include sixteen suites and the 3,500-square-foot Presidential Suite, which is designed to give the feel of a private residence, with its four bedrooms, five bathrooms, parlor, den, two fireplaces and baby grand piano. (It is accessed by a private key hallway). D├ęcor ranges from simple four-poster beds draped in white linen to more elaborate, European-style pieces. Amenities lean toward the luxurious, including Egyptian cotton linens, silk and terry bathrobes, cordless phones, Aveda bath products and safes big enough for laptops. Martini BLU serves international cuisine, and the in-house sushi bar is tops. As a Kimpton property, the hotel offers numerous complimentary perks, including an evening wine hour. All guests also enjoy access to the 58,000-square-foot Minneapolis Time Life Athletic Club; a hangover from the hotel's previous life, this magnificent facility includes a fitness center, full basketball court, racquetball courts, squash courts, indoor running track, boxing studio and eucalyptus steam room. Truly impressive is its lap pool, in an Olympian setting beneath a ceiling painted with clouds.
