Nice and newer in a great locations. You can see the Vikings stadium going up just a couple of blocks away and take a stroll along the river now that it's getting warmer out. It seems like this neighborhood is about to take off a bit - with some trendy dining options going up nearby. The only drawback I can... More

Aloft has a great location, close to restaurants and the Guthrie Theatre. The decor is cool with an open lobby with plenty of comfy seating areas, a nice bar and restaurant. There is also a shop to pick up a bite to eat anytime. Room is not huge, but nicely appointed and a comfortable bed and pillows. Service is great... More

I will stay here again if going to the Guthrie, a Vikings game or the UM, We enjoyed our 2 night stay but wouldn't have enjoyed a longer one. I had a hard time rating this hotel. Attention during design was given to making it hip and unique while comfort and utility came in 2nd. It was clean and the... More

The location of this hotel is right in the midst of the Mill City neighborhood of Minneapolis. It is right across the street from the Guthrie and Gold Medal Park. It is also close to the Target Center / Target Field and lots of great restaurants - this made it perfect for our Valentine's getaway. The service was pretty good... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are happy you enjoyed our hotel's convenient location and modern decor. And although you planned for a quieter nightcap, we are happy you were able to appreciate the bar, had it been less crowded. Thanks again and we do hope to see you soon. Take care. More

Being greeted with some apathy from the front desk person, compounded by her indifferent declaration that the reservation wasn't set up correctly - well, the entire stay seemed to match. All of the other front desk / reception / store check out seemed ... just flat, unwelcoming, just didn't have a good vibe from anyone (other than the engineer who... More

Trendy? Maybe... Noisy? fer sure, fer sure! Secure? This place is something bad waiting to happen. I'll try to make sense of all that... The good: All staff we encountered were great! Check in was not smooth. Granted we were a tad early - 2:30 PM (stated time is 3:00 and I've read the mgmt response line about this in... More

Even with the temperature does not get over 12* F, this place is still warm. The rooms are efficient, the staff very friendly and helpful and the hotel in great shape. The trails are great for running or the gym is quite nice if its too cold for you. In walking distance to a number of restaurants and bars and... More

The staff is spectacular and the location is great for me. I like to run and the trails are right out front on the river. LOVE THIS PLACE. Grab sushi across the street. There is a bike rack out front to rent a bike as well. Stay here!

This location has bean bag toss, a great little snack center and gas fireplace gathering area. If you are there in the winter make sure to snuggle up with a blanket there. During the summer months you can stroll along the river walk, which is just a few minutes from the hotel.
