We primarily selected this hotel based on other reviews and price, but after staying there its location in the heart of downtown Minneapolis is its selling point. It was extremely convenient to get to the Nicollet Mall light rail station, which connects you to the airport, Mall of America and other popular sites. Restaurants, bars, shopping and other attractions are... More

We stayed here through priceline and we were definitely happy! The place was immaculate along with our room as well and also in close proximity to everything that is downtown! Look no further, this is the hotel to stay at.

My daughter chose the terrace on the 8th floor of this hotel for her wedding. It was beautiful with the downtown skyline in the background. We had a hotel room connected to the terrace, which was convenient and a nice room. Those rooms are busy, so sometimes they do not get them ready by check-in. So they gave us a... More

We had a good one night stay. We booked a room on the executive level and it worked well since we were able to have a meeting place and a place to watch the football game with others in the Club Lounge.

Great location for all your Minneapolis downtown needs. Close to the train and within walking distance to several good bars, restaurants, the stadiums and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were comfortable.

Stayed during a business trip. Convenient location and the staff is friendly. Room was kinda tired, looked like it had been abused and the evidence, such as, stains and ripped lampshades and leaning lamps, stained rug were still evident. Housekeeping was negligent and the towels looked dirty, even though they’d been through the bleach cycle many times. I left a... More

We stayed here and found the hotel met our needs in every respect. The room decor is nicely updated. The hotel is close by the Nicollet Mall; the day we were there the farmer's market stretched on for about 5 blocks. There were quite a few other hotel guests attending the Twins game that night, as were we. We went... More

Downtown hotels are never my first choice, if nothing else I'd like a cup of coffee, with some cream in the morning. So the goods, I was here for 4 nights, for the most part the value was excellent, and the rate included parking and wifi. The front desk staff were very pleasant, with Anthony even recalling my name.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. The staff were friendly and helpful. The deal on parking on weekends was good ($12 per day on weekends). Annoying that there was no free/included wifi, instead they charged for it (think it was $10 for 24 hours, which doesn't break the bank, but in this day and age, it's not the norm). The... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to attend the Vikings 2014 season home opener. The check in experience was very efficient. Our booking was recognized immediately by the staff.
