I thought the breakfast would be like any other breakfast at any other hotel. What surprised me was the you could take the food to your room or you can even get it delivered to you. I decided the eat my breakfast in the breakfast bar and it was amazing. They had such a wide variety of food to choose... More

This hotel is very clean, professionally operated, has a very convient downtown location, and very modestly priced. I had a good stay and will stay again as the location downtown is much more convenient for me than comparably priced hotels further away. Parking is also affordable. That said, I would like to say that this hotel experience is more of... More

Right downtown, parking is available adjacent to the hotel for $15/day, easy to walk everywhere downtown. The hotel is contemporary, clean and efficient. Our room was on the 2nd floor overseeing the parking lot (no view!), an enormous King bed, nice bathroom, little bar area with a mini-frig with separate freezer & a microwave, a nice work desk and the...

I stayed six days at this hotel while attending the APA 2014 Congress at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The only problem I had was upon check-in. I had just arrived around 5:30pm from the air port after a long trip from California, they had my reservation which I had made months in advance through the APA travel agency. When I... More

great place. close to convention center and nightlife. Pleasant staff well run hotel. The only thing that would be better is an arrangement with the city parking garage for being able to charge the parking to the room bill for expense reports

Holiday Inn Express is a great little hotel. A 5 minute walk from the convention center, and very close to the SkyWalk. The beds were very comfortable, with a choice of soft or firm pillows. The tv was a flat screen with a great variety of channels. Ice and vending machines locate on each floor, and a fantastic breakfast buffet.... More

An easy, inexpensive place to spend a night or two for business travel. The hotel is clean and has good breakfast options. The location is convenient, and it is fairly easy to walk to downtown. There are not a ton of cabs in the area, so don't expect to grab one easily. I would recommend for a short business stay,... More

A clean, easy to get to hotel near the heart of downtown Minneapolis. I attend a yearly conference at the Msp Convention Center every year, and this is my go-to hotel. Granted, much of that is because my company gets a great rate at this particular hotel. However, the few times I've tried to get a reservation and the HIE... More
