We arrived the day after this hotel's grand reopening, so everything still has that fresh, newly constructed smell. Overall we had a nice four-night stay, but there were pros and cons: The pros--The hotel is really close to I-394 but near a frontage road so you don't get any noise. The rooms feel much more spacious, and the furniture is... More

In April, we called on the phone and asked whether the repair will end by June. We have answered over 100% or that it will remain small and unobtrusive. It was a lie. Thank's God, we came to the hotel for 3 days only to sleep. Our room was renovated, but poorly washed. The air conditioner was dirty and dusty.... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a quick "get away" weekend. I was nervous to book the hotel due to the construction, but was very surprised when we checked in. Both our rooms were clean, renovated and super comfortable! We didn't hear any noise from the construction during the evening/night. Everyone was very nice and helpful with our questions... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express due to a relative being at North Memorial Hospital. They provided a discount to us since we had a family member in the hospital. This hotel is SO clean even though they are in the middle of major renovations. Rooms are comfortable, beds are wonderful and pillows are so nice and puffy! The... More

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!
