Staycation at the Kimpton Grand Hotel
When we got pregnant with Roy we did a fabulous babymoon in Maui! Rishi did an amazing job at planning the whole thing and we had an amazing time.
After we got pregnant this time we didn’t know if we would be able to do any sort of babymoon since Roy is still so young. Then the fabulous folks over at Grand Hotel reached out to offer us a weekend getaway (and my parents agreed to hang out with Roy), so off we went!
We were welcomed by a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some locally made popcorn by Maddy & Maize.
The crew at the Grand Hotel treated us to relaxing massages which was such a treat! The LifeSpa and salon at the Grand even does prenatal massages which you can’t always find!
When we got back, we had cookies and sparkling water waiting and ready.
They sure know to surprise and delight us!!
The Kimpton Grand Hotel was originally constructed in 1915 as the Minneapolis Athletic Club—a high-end athletic and business club. Although it has been fully remodeled, Lifetime Fitness is still located in the basement!
There’s delicious coffee served in the lobby every morning and a hosted wine hour every night (which Rishi enjoyed!).
I love all the old architecture and feel of the Grand without it feeling old or dingy. It’s definitely my kinda spot!
They have a delicious bar in the restaurant where locally sourced ingredients are used to make some amazing food! We sampled a few cocktails (n/a of course) and loved them!
We walked to dinner at 112 Eatery the first night and had amazing food. The next day we walked to Red Rabbit for brunch and hit up 2 of our favorite shops – Martin Patrick 3 and D.Nolo. I love how close the Grand is to so much shopping and restaurants!
We had such a blast on our mini weekend away! I highly recommend staying at the Kimpton Grand Hotel for you next staycation (or actual vacation) in Minneapolis!
