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

Positive Notes: Staff was very friendly and helpful (gave us maps and a magazine), hotel room was inexpensive and comfy and we especially appreciate the kitchenette and the cable TV, convenient location (doable walking distance to and from Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Target Center/ short walk to Convention Center, in case you're attending something there), safe location, breakfast was good...

This hotel was overall, a great experience. We enjoyed the nicely furnished rooms and lobby, the above-average breakfast buffet and prompt and thorough housekeeping. The front desk and breakfast staff were always polite and accommodating. There were also lots of great shopping and dining places within walking distance and parking was close and easy. The internet connection was a little... More

I stayed here (11/1/13-11/9/13) while I was attending a residency. This was one of the cheapest hotels I found that was fit and available for my stay. Hotels in downtown Minneapolis are very expensive! We had a standard room and it was very cozy. Although I did find the room to be a bit too small. The room was always... More

I have stayed here many times. It is good location. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. The rooms have always been clean and pleasant. The rooms are average size. There is nothing great about them, but nothing bad either.

We stayed here over a weekend to attend a sporting event in December. Negatives: After driving 10 hours straight, I was disappointed that I was woken by other noisy guest in the hallways during the early hours of the morning (2-4am). I found an old diaper under the bed, obviously missed by housekeeping. Parking is $15 per night, but if... More

Downtown Minneapolis has many hotels, and I'm sure that several are superb. However I will probably never stay at any of them because I've been so satisfied with this Holiday Inn Express.

Thank you for your comments! We are pleased that you had a generally nice stay at our property. Unfortunately, parking fees do accompany properties such as ours that are located so conveniently to all that downtown Minneapolis has to offer. Our rates are very typical for our surrounding area, but we do apologize that this came as an unpleasant surprise... More
