This hotel was in a great location, easy walk to the nightlife and Target Field for a game, and not to mention many restaurants and bars. I went to the Hen House for breakfast each day. It was just two blocks away and served great food! the front desk staff were very helpful especially with directions to certain areas and... More

On the Hotels.com website, I was informed of FREE breakfast. It sure wasn't--in fact, it was a partially pre-paid ($18 each) voucher, but if you wanted to tip or have drinks or were hungrier than their (admittedly) fair portions provided, it is in no way free. What a gyp. Lo and behold, neither Hotels.com nor Crowne Plaza took the righteous... More

I had a one day stop-over for a meeting with a group of clients. Pretty nice hotel, good downtown location within easy walking distance of many fine dining establishments.Rooms were clean and well appointed with lots of 110v outlets (YAY) strangely, only one bath towel in the room (perhaps an oversight).

Forgot to book with the wedding party, but prices were reasonable nonetheless. My girlfriend and I had an awesome time there for two nights for our friends' wedding. The staff was always courteous and helpful (early check-in and questions about the area).

I travel to Minneapolis frequently for work and have stayed at the Crowne Plaza twice now. During my first stay, I immediately noticed that the rooms are in need of some updating. The rooms are dark and the beds/pillows aren't very comfortable. However, I didn't have any service issues so that was good. This time I was there for five... More

Nice place. Great room service and city view . Was 2 blocks away from the concert. Small tv. Could use recarpeting. Spendy but its downtown so what do you want. Front desk was snooty. Parking was addditional cost.

Hotel is in a great location, connected to skywalk. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, and view (Skygarden) was beautiful. Meeting rooms were very nice. "Krona" (bar) was nice - offers drink special with Twins ticket stub in game days.Downfall - Cafe Northstar on 7th floor. Super overpriced ($14 for omelette) especially since you can take skywalk to a plethora... More

We stayed here in late May as tourists. We were visiting Minneapolis on a baseball trip- to see the Twins play the Jays. This hotel is downtown and well situated- close to the LRT line (closest station is Government Plaza, a short walk of 2 blocks). It will be a handy hotel for the new Stadium as well, just a... More

Staying here while attending trade show at convention center which is less than a mile. Can either walk second avenue or take the enclosed walkways. Hotel is clean and has been kept up with nice upgrades in the hotel. Fitness center limited, but nice.
