Very nice room! We would have said it deserves at least a 4 star! Parking in the ramp next door was only $12 with in and out privileges. Restaurant/bar downstairs that we did not use since we wanted to walk around downtown a bit. Safe area. Lots of restaurants nearby. Internet was free if I became a Club Member (which... More

Location downtown is great around restaurants, Target Field, bars, etc. The hotel itself is nothing exciting--tiny fitness center, super slow elevators, no fridge/microwave in room. Has potential to be great but as of now is pretty lame.

Stayed here for about week while doing business in the MSP area. My company picked the location and I am happy with the choice they made. I am not much of a fan of downtown areas, the traffic (and believe me there is traffic here) is just not something I am accustomed to and try to avoid. The hotel, however,... More

I came for work and had read the lukewarm reviews, the positive and negative. The room had a great view of downtown Minneapolis and it's near many things including my clients. The negative, oh my! The room was dirty, my bed was not made by housekeeping, the bedspread was clearly soiled when I checked in, the bathroom needed some deep... More

Proximity, quality, comfort, and cleanliness sum up the Crowne Plaza Downtown. Our schedule was tight, and we got to the hotel just before first pitch. The front desk staff were very professional, and "quick" as they knew we wanted to drop and go. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. We dropped our bags, but had to pause for a minute... More

The hotel is quite nice and the Executive Lounge amenities are good. Rooms are average size,but clean. Main complaint I have is that getting out of the parking garage is a nightmare. The hotel uses a public parking garage right next door and they give you a white ticket that shows the charges will be posted to your room...BUT...they don't... More

At the last minute I had to find a place to stay over night in Minneapolis. The Crowne Plaza Downtown is centrally located only three blocks east from Target Center, six blocks east from Target Field, Nicollet Mall is only two blocks west. The Guthrie Theater, and Mill City Museum are only about a 12 minute walk northeast of this... More

I would have loved to give this hotel 4 "stars" but unfortunately due to the location of our room, I just can't. We booked our room through Priceline for a weekend get away to Minneapolis. Our room was on the 9th floor just around the corner from the elevators (Room 907). All night long we could hear the elevators going... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was fine, the staff was very helpful. Just understand if you stay here that parking is going to be very expensive so I think I'll not return. I'm not used to paying an extra $20+ to park my car at a hotel after paying up for a downtown location. Someone told... More

As soon as I walked into my room, I was able to smell cigarette smoke. I called the front desk and I was told that it was not possible because they are a non-smoking facility. They sent a person up with an air-freshener. As soon as he walked in, he agreed the room smelled bad, most likely of cigarette smoke.... More
