The staff at this hotel was the best I have dealt with. Lucas, brooks,and Jeannette were the most helpful in getting me a room for a extended stay. Rooms were very clean and updated. A five star place to stay.

The hotel was in the process of being remodeled. The room was beautiful. The service was excellent. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hot breakfast was fantastic. The indoor poor was heated. I would definitely stay here again.

We were not told the hotel was under construction when booking. It was a mess. We were put in an updated room, however it was rather cluttered with oversized fabricated furnishings. The lighting was horrible, all lights were very bright, not able to have relaxed lighting. Only one very bright light in the bathroom, if the door was open it... More

If it's not absolutely necessary that you stay downtown, book this one. Nearby freeway makes it very easy to get to any Minneapolis destination. There is some remodeling going on but you wouldn't know it if you didn't see it happening. Breakfast belongs in the outstanding category; they even have a new fangled pancake machine the likes of which me... More

If you have ever walked by a construction site, heard the hammers and the saws, the roar of the heavy equipment, smelled the paint and the sawdust, heard the cussing of the workers or maybe even glimpsed a butt crack, and thought WOW! It would be fun to stay there for a few days, you are in luck, because that’s... More

We visit Golden Valley for business every six weeks, and always stay here. They're always top notch! The new renovation is almost complete, and it's beautiful. We will continue to give them our business every six weeks, and would never look elsewhere. Thanks!

Even though they are under what appears to be some amazing renovations, my stay has been nothing short of pleasant and positive. They have a very large breakfast selection (biggest I've ever seen for this price level).

Hotel was under repairs when we got there not the best start for a couples weekend, but the front desk( Lucas Smith) went over and above to make sure everything went ok from resturants to the shuttle to drop us off and pick us up. Lucas saved the day!!! Thank you

Sometimes service triumphs over amenities as in this case at the HIE and thus can earn an extra star. Yes the hotel is currently a bit of a disaster because of construction upgrades but the people at the desk went above and beyond the call of service. The comp breakfast here is slightly better than most other hotels. At least... More
