Six15 Room
The Grand Hotel's lounge gets a major makeover.
The San Francisco-based Kimpton boutique hotel chain recently took over the Grand Hotel in downtown Minneapolis and put the property under a major renovation. The Zahtar restaurant upstairs is still intact, but the lobby-side lounge got a significant update--including swank new furnishings and a new food and drink list--and reopened as the Six15 Room.

Chef Kris Koch, who has previously worked at the former 20.21 in the Walker and was more recently the Metropolitan Club chef for the Twins' Target Field, has created a new menu of snacks, small plates, entrees, and desserts that incorporates many local and organic ingredients. And the bar is mixing all sorts of classic cocktails (Aviation! Sidecar! Dark & Stormy!) along with some signature blends.

Here are the food menu and the unique Six15 Room drinks:

Pretentious hotel, absurdly overpriced. And not a cup of coffee anywhere to be found, no coffeepot in the rooms, nothing in the lobby, not a shred of hospitality anywhere. I was told to walk 2 blocks to Starbucks the morning after our stay. Oh, and you have to PAY to use the internet. Also, the little plastic laundry bags in your room are not free. The decor is just...odd. And very dim, florescent bulb depressing. The pool had no water, and was completely closed. Why are those photos in their ads, and why was I told they had a pool when I made my reservation? The fitness room was locked very early in the evening, making it unusable for us. If you must have a boutique hotel, at least stay at a place that wants you to feel respected, welcome and comfortable. We just felt defrauded paying nearly $600.00 for our 2 completely mediocre rooms and very poor amenities.
