When the weather is nice, its nice to open a window, Not here, the street is loud with trucks and cars honking through the night. I thought I was in NYC a few times. Other than that, rooms are nice and clean, all the modern amenities. Wifi is good. They will bring a fridge up to your room if needed,... More

We had an awesome stay here last night. This hotel is in a fantastic location. Its a short walk to many bars and restaurants. Room was clean and spacious, hotel staff was friendly, breakfast was delicious, Didn't use the pool or fitness room so can't comment on those. Walls seemed a little thin, as we could hear the people next... More

This was a great location for us to stay in downtown Minneapolis! We were able to walk just a few blocks to our choice of great restaurants (we selected Hell's Kitchen and Angel's Bakery) with other options for shopping (Nicolette Mall) and entertainment fairly. We were also able to walk to the new Viking Stadium and felt comfortable and safe... More

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.

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

Thank you for leaving us a review! We agree that it is a bummer that parking is extra, but it just sort of comes with the territory when you have a convenient location right in the middle of downtown like us. We do feel that although it is extra, it is quite fair for the area, thank you for noting... 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.
