We enjoy eating at the Inn on special occasions. This year for a birthday celebration we decided to stay. It was a great choice! The service is wonderful and accommodating. Rooms are on the smaller side but have all the amenities and great views.

We were in town for a long weekend and wedding (at the nearby Nicollet Island Pavilion). Next time we are back in Minneapolis you will find us at this delightful Inn. I would be hard pressed to offer suggestions for improvement. I was particularly struck by the friendliness, helpfulness and knowledge level of the entire Staff -- from the front... More

Set along the mississippi and smack dab downtown minneapolis you wouldn't expect to find a hotel that makes you feel like your back in time. There restaurant is also very good. Across the street you can wander the other great bars and restaurants along the mississippi.

Staff were young and eager to please like good Lutherans. Garrison Keillor would love the Minnesotaness of this place. See through elevator equipped with an operator seat. Beautifully restored rooms with firmness selection on each side of the bed. Best Wi Fi I have ever had in a hotel. comfortable, quiet and cozy. We stayed in our room and did... More

Stayed overnight as an anniversary "staycation" and we were pleased. Promptly greeted by front desk staffperson who was very polite. Room was beautifully decorated and looked well kept. The room door even needed a "real key" to get in, which in an odd kind of way, was really nice. Floor was slanted in the room, but that is what gives... More

Front desk staff was wonderful, yet the manager seemed to be overwhelmed and many of our guests commented on her curtness. Beautiful dining areas with beautiful views of river, great placement and walks to Stone Arch Bridge. Out of town guests get great experience of historic Minnespolis.

My husband surprised me with a Groupon to the Nicollet Island Inn. I had never been to this area of the city and was really excited as we drove up and I could see the historic little inn. We were greeted warmly at the reception and were given a standard room. I thought it was supposed to overlook the city... More

A very nice break from the generic modern, large hotels with "everything". This historic hotel is a perfect getaway for couples. Your on an island so it feels remote, yet you are just blocks away from all the things to do in Minneapolis. Rooms have a sleep number bed which is always a plus. The staff was very friendly and...

I attended a wedding at this historic hotel. The rooms are historically decorated and very clean. If you like old architecture this hotel is for you. The staff was very helpful and attentive. It's located in the middle of downtown Minneapolis along the Mississippi river in the historic milling district. Lots of sightseeing and good restaurants within walking distance. The... More

A refreshing treat. This historic property is located on an island (connected by a bridge to the mainland) and it feels like miles away from the city. Yet it is incredibly convenient to Minneapolis and St. Paul city cores. Our room and the inn itself had lots of old charm but was up to date in all important ways. I... More
