First, when making a reservation at this hotel make sure you know if you are going to be in the old, remodeled section that was part of the old train depot, or in the new section that is just another modern hotel. We were in the new section. We enjoyed a wonderful view of the air conditioning unit on top... More

Our New Year 2015 Celebration with our family and friends couldn't be better. We had a nice suite with a room for kids and a nice king bed for us. Kids had so much fun in the pool and the arcade. Later after dinner ( buffet style) we went ice skating and that was a blast! They also had DJ... More

I stayed 5 nights in King room on the 2nd floor to attend a conference. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is very unique and one of a kind, which makes it special for me to stay there. It has lots of charm and character and really stunning architectural work, statues and art work. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for a professional conference and enjoyed the laid back ambiance. This once busy train depot has been renovated into a quaint hotel. The rooms are decorated with prints and dark wood of another era. The hallway corridors of red wallpaper and French posters transport you back in time. Downstairs the bar area sports dark wood...

Always a prime location for the weekend trip as the central location downtown is key and serves us well for our travels. Nice rooms, breakfast, and great views of the Viking new home. I'm never a fan of paid parked, especially as a big Marriott guy but overall nice staff and nice stay.

We had a work conference at the beautiful hotel and everything was first class...all the way. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and completely awesome. They offer aveda bath products and I love the shelf in the bathroom. I used the top one for my products and it kept the counter clean. I melted in the bed and the rooms were... More

I just visited for one day on business and found the hotel very well-suited for my needs. The gym was perfect for a quick run, the lounge had a good selection of food and beverages, and the location was just right for my arrival from the airport and the work I needed to accomplish.

We enjoyed a great classic suite in the Historic Tower and recommend it highly. Marvelous classic decor combined with very comfortable beds...and quiet. Service was top-notch, and I especially appreciated the opportunity to recharge my electric car in the garage.

Stayed on a Friday night for a wedding. Hotel was ver nice and the room was decent sized with a comfortable bed. The pool area has a nice big hot tub and has a little water park. Nice bar in the lobby and the hotel is conveniently located downtown Minneapolis. A nice place to stay!

Centrally located in downtown and easy, safe to walk to sites close to hotel. Was there for business and didn't eat in the restaurant or hotel..can't comment here. Business meeting/room was hot-cold as most hotels can't get the temp right (sadly). Attentive staff at front desk and very friendly. Fun bar/lounge scene and wish it had been warm enough to... More
