We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this venue in September 2014. I cannot say enough about the Event Director (Sarah G) and all the staff (from the receptionist, servers, bartender, etc.) at the Nicollet Island Inn. Our event was for just under 65 people and every detail exceeded our expectations. Food, service, and the setting were all exception.... More

This is a quality hotel with old-world charm. Our king-size room was spacious, and clean. What was best about the hotel is the location on Nicollet Island. It's an easy walk to visit a wonderful array of restaurants on Main, or up E. Hennepin Avenue. The legendary Nye's Polonaise Room is but a short stroll away, for a trip back... More

We were looking for unique hotel in Minneapolis for a short stay. The Nicollett Island Inn is located on an island in the Mississippi River right across from downtown Minneapolis. It is a popular park area used by everyone for walking, running, and skating. Quick walk to St. Anthony Main, a restored area of buildings dating from the founding of... More

As soon as you enter from the door you travel in time. Everything in the hotel is carefully chosen to fit the old times theme. Even the guest rooms have metal keys. Very friendly staff and a nice, small restaurant. And location, one of the best you can have in Minneapolis.

My wife and I were here for a "stay-cation" to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The inn is in a perfect location to get away from downtown noise but walking distance to a hipster neighborhood with good bars and entertainment, or walk around the adjacent park trails. On the whole, suited for our purpose with some minor complaints. On arrival, the... More

My husband and I stayed here just this past weekend. It's a hotel with real personality and charm. The staff was extremely helpful any time I called or went to the desk. One example: I needed an early check-in so called in advance to see whether that would be possible. The desk clerk put me on hold while she personally... More

My wife and I visited the Nicollet Island Inn recently for an anniversery getaway. The Inn is located on Nicollet Island, in the middle of downtown Minneapolis. It is very easy to access, just off Hennepin Ave. and there was plenty of parking. The building is a very charming former factory with ivy growing up the side. The entire premesis... More

Stayed here on a business trip. Loved the location and the accommodations. My room was quite large, with 2 big windows and faced the river. Loved the shutters on the windows as opposed to the typical hotel curtains. My room had 2 nice wing chairs and a desk. The bathroom was a little small, but fit with the charming atmosphere.... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night. We are natives of the Twin Cities and came downtown for a night out and away from the kids. Nicollet Island Inn is an European-style Boutique Inn. There are things about it that will disappoint those who are looking for a Hampton Inn or Marriott experience. The linens are light.... More

While it cannot be disputed that the location of the Nicollet Island Inn is exceptional, the hotel itself is lackluster. Small rooms, worn furnishings and an unimpressive restaurant are just a few of the unfortunate aspects of this hotel. There are few options in this particular location, however one would be better served staying in the less expensive, but far... More
