This is a great location for anyone looking for a stay located close to all downtown amenities. It's within walking distance to restaurant's, shopping and pubs. Our stay was lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beds were so comfy and the rooms clean. The only draw back was there was too much chlorine in the hot tub. I... More

Stayed here for 5 nights attending a conference at the Marriott. A well-managed Holiday Inn Express. No complaints except housekeeping managed to miss our room completely one day. Request for extra pillows was handled as expected. Lots of hot water and good water pressure. Reasonable sized room and desk. Standard HI Express breakfast (love the cinnamon rolls)...breakfast staff were not... More

Good value and good location downtown. Definitely within walking distance to a lot of things in downtown Minneapolis. I came for the Hot Chocolate 15K and was pleased. There were volleyball tournaments and dance tournaments around town, so lots of kids around, but I didn't hear them at all. They have a breakfast room, workout facility, pool and laundry. Rooms...

Good place to be, comfortable and quiet. Parking garage across the street, less expensive parking than the other highrise hotels. Only one time great fare, next time couldn't get the same or better rate. Tried the next business hotel.

The staff was super friendly and helpful and the room was nice. Very convenient to my conference at the convention and a better value than the Hilton. Walkable and close to everything we wanted to do. Free breakfast was a nice bonus. We rented the Nice Bikes and got around town on those during free time.

I stayed here for a conference at the Hilton nearby - an easy block and a half away. The room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. I reserved one of the rooms with a kitchen which included a refrigerator, microwave and a small sink. That was plenty for me. I was pleased to find that the hotel came with free... More

Excellent service. Super friendly staff. Yummy breakfast. Staff went out of their way to recommend restaurants or services. A few blocks from the blue line. Easy access to many atttractions. Enjoyed my stay! Highly recommend.

I stayed here for about a week while attending a workshop in Minneapolis. The location was fairly decent, staff was friendly and nice and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was average though!

I would agree that this hotel is very clean. the condition of our room was clean but tired. the bathroom is very small but again clean. We were there for a Friday and Saturday night stay. One big downside is that on weekend they don't start serving breakfast until 7:00 AM. We needed to be on the road to our... More
