This was our first time in the hotel, it is a gorgeous and pleasant place to stay. You feel like traveling back in time with the decoration and the amenities. The rooms are clean and neat, we had the vest view in the corner premier room. The restaurant and the food extraordinary. We will come back for sure, just wonderful!

Stayed here for a one night business trip and wanted something a bit different from the standard. This fit the bill! Very quaint, on the river, with a lot of authentic historic touches. Room was clean, spacious, and bright. Bed has a sleep number mattress (not a big fan personally, but it was comfortable and clean). Staff was very friendly... More

Note: We have not stayed at the inn. This is a review of the restaurant. Nicollet Island Inn is a century-old inn on an island in the Mississippi in downtown Minneapolis. The moment you enter the charming old island inn the city seems far away. In the quiet restaurant every table overlooks the river. Food is gourmet quality and service... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our dining experience at the restaurant. I am pretty sure I have never had better service by anybody anywhere. From the Manager to the waiter to the cook who we spoke to... everybody seemed glad to help out and maker sure everything was 100% perfect. I started my dinner with the Onion Soup Gratinee,... More

Loved my stay at this charming little spot. Although only there for an overnight stay, it was a WONDERFUL experience! Very accommodating to my needs and request! I arrived around lunch and since I had a breakfast meeting at the pavilion, they allowed me to use the weekday breakfast coupon for lunch and let me borrow an umbrella to walk... More

I had not been to Minneapolis in many years, and for a business meeting the Nicollett Island Inn was selected. I knew nothing about it before hand but going top the website saw it was a very attractive old building converted into a boutique hotel. And that is an accurate description. It is an old factory that was turned into... More

Beautiful setting on the river. Great walking paths and interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Staff was wonderful. We enjoyed drinks in the bar area that had wonderful views of the river, trees and flowers. For breakfast we had a fabulous meal in their dining room again with beautiful views of the... More

If this were on the Left Bank it would be the screaming deal of the century. This has the charm of a Paris hotel, but with larger rooms. Everything has a well worn, but authentic look. The restaurant is fine, and the common areas are charming. The beds and bedding are a bit tired and the towels are YMCA quality.... More

Living in the country we sometimes go to the nearest big city for a vacation. From the comfort of the Nicollet Island Inn, our room and restaurant, we can watch the Mississippi River flowing by. Fun to walk to wonderful restaurants. Also, get on the light rail train and visit - Mall of America and Surley's Brewery.

The hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places so do not expect a Hampton Inn type room. The NII is charming with a very nice staff. It is located near great walking/biking/running trails. It also has a pleasant bar and restaurant. I would definitely stay at the NII again!
