When we saw how dog-friendly the Grand Hotel Minneapolis is, we were sad we didn't bring our pup with us to the Midwest. But we were traveling with our girlfriends en route to a wedding and what we did discover is that this Kimpton property downtown makes the perfect pad for a good, old-fashioned girly catch-up.
Our Queen Queen Deluxe was super spacious, and had lots of cute and comfy touches, from the chaise lounge to the signature zebra-print Kimpton robes and full-size dispensers of C.O. Bigelow toiletries in the shower.
Check out our room video and photo gallery and you'll see just how well this spread can accommodate three chicks keen on doing very little but lounging about, drinking some wine, snacking on Twizzlers and talking until the wee hours of the night.
The Grand clearly knows how well suited it is for such girly gatherings because the hotel offers its own Grand Girls' Getaway Package, which requires a 2-night minimum stay but includes 10% off the best available rate, pink champagne delivered to your room, 20% off spa services at LifeSpa, access to the massive Life Time Athletic Club on hotel premises and a bunch of discounts for local activities.
Our trio of journalistic types paid a media rate of $149 + tax. Queen Queen Double Deluxe Rooms are usually around $289 a night.
