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

I know that you are under construction but the rooms you are renting out are terrible. The carpet in my room is covered in stains. All the walls are beat up.

Very convenient to where I needed to be with a fair price for what was offered. Yes I agree with the WIFI comment the others have, it was not the greatest and I also thought it was a bit rude to be kicked out of the breakfast area at 9:30. sharp. I have stayed in quite a few hotels with... More

This Holiday Inn was a good place to stay. I arrived in Minneapolis 3 hours before check-in and had to meet coworkers elsewhere downtown. The front desk had my room ready and let me park before check-in time. Continental breakfast was good as well. I can only give 3/5 as I had a later flight out the next day, and... More
