We loved this property -- it is a great hotel. See my very positive review of the lobby train museum lobby, the great restaurant -- and a water park. Underground parking -- it is just great. If you are driving and parking at the property, you can go straight into underground parking and then go check in at the front... More

I really liked the location near my business meetings and the Mississippi River for my morning run. The city is fantastic, cute, and clean. There is also a really nice smoking patio in the inner courtyard that was protected from the wind. The Concierge Lounge was small but nice. This hotel is connected to the Residence Inn and you can...

Is good value for the money, self parking is normally included with the room. Nothing particular about the rooms, bathrooms are old but functional. Hotel staff can take a few pointers from other properties in the area in regards to handling customers, not really the most welcoming bunch. Unless $10-20 is the deciding point of the choice of hotel I... More

We came in from MI for a wedding over the weekend, and stayed at this hotel due to the convenience of having a room in the same location as the reception. Location of this hotel was perfect: short, easy walk from the light rail to/from the airport; another easy walk to get/drop off a rental car for a side trip;... More

Our two night stay was more than we could have asked for! The staff was amazing and were so in tuned to our needs and gave us all the information we needed to get around Minneapolis on foot. The rooms were extra clean and beds very comfortable. The waterpark was being worked on during out stay but we found ourselves... More

I am a Marriott Platinum member and travel extensively for work. I recently stayed at this hotel and was not impressed. First, for those Elite Marriott members out there, I had to be assigned one of the worst rooms. It included a view of the construction going on across the street and if that noise wasn't enough, the waterpark and/or... More

Dear mbateacher, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor, we appreciate all reviews good and bad. I apologize that you were disturbed by the renovation that is underway, and that the concierge lounge did not suit you.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff. Rooms are well kept and the overall hotel is in good order. Good workout room with many options. Bar and restaurant in the lobby have good food and friendly staff. Walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Close to sports stadiums and some fun, more adult, activities.

Stayed for 2 nights this past weekend. Hotel is in a great, clean, safe area downtown Minneapolis. Checked in with a breeze and very friendly staff. Rooms are a good size and quality. Great bath products from Aveda! Restaurant and bar in the lobby is great and loved the Martini! Would certainly return if I am in the area.
