We really enjoyed many of the restaurants and pubs/lounges that are considered part if the mall. They have something for everybody; even quick but healthy and delicious options for lunch. However, we spent our first day here shopping. We realized it was a waste of our time. After we went to Mall of America and the Albertville Outlets we realized... More

Nice to walk along Nicollet Mall and find all the stores and restaurants. Good place to people watch as well.

We walked thru and there are just to many homeless people, people that seem nuts preaching and people that just look like they are up to no good. Its mostly restaurants and some stores. If your in the area for something else it will work but not worth going out of your way for.

Very nice area in downtown Minneapolis. The self-propelled bar busses were a special treat. The Newsroom was a most enjoyable restaurant with a wide choice of beverages and numerous and wide-ranging dining choices. Excellent food.

Think of "mall" as in pedestrian mall such as Washington DC's "the mall". Besides the restaurants and some other smaller shops, I noticed a Macy's and a Target. Theater district also very close by

Over the past few years, I have been to this area several times now, and I see more each time of what I'd rather not see. More and more homeless people walking around or sleeping, more and more people who may indeed me harmless but do look like people I would assume are up to no good, more and more... More

There a a couple of things needed here to make this a better shopping experience. 1) more stores - many have apparently closed down. .. and 2) public restrooms- the ones we could find required an "access card". This place is OK, but I wouldn't choose to go back. What IS there caters to those who work downtown. If you... More

We booked the Westin for our Minneapolis weekend, close to the light rail and Nicollet Mall. However, the "Mall" is not all it is made to be. Yes, they have a Macy's, Saks of 5th, etc., but so what? Not the best selection of stores. The restaurants were OK, street side is fun for some people watching. We liked the... More

Enjoyed great restaurants and convenient shopping while in Minneapolis for a conference. Love the sidewalk cafés and restaurant/pubs open late. Great weather in May! Free bus takes you to the train with easy access to airport and Mall of America.
