Enjoyed my stay. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. My room was large enough with a king sized bed. Staff were courteous and helpful in locating restaurants. Very convenient location for the commuter train, just a two block walk to the light rail stop, which was nice for getting two and from the airport. Lots of skywalks connecting the... More

My daughter and niece and I stayed here for our concert.The hotel is only like 5/6 blocks to the Target Center. We were able to walk to the concert. Safe even around midnight coming back.

Friday, July 18th - I arrived after midnight, but had called ahead to ensure my room would be ready and available. Upon arrival, I checked in. Unfortunately, my representative appeared to be very new and took longer than the desire time for a tired traveler. The room was cozy and clean with a street view of downtown Minneapolis . At...

I was recently at the Crowne Plaza mpls and was beyond disappointed. My wife and I stayed over the weekend (7/19-7/20). We didn't have pleasant customer service from the moment we got there. First the hotel concierge got the name wrong for the stay and had to deal with a worrisome situation. The parking was really stressful with an unruly,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel while visiting my daughter at the U. The staff was very friendly, but I must have been placed on the "party floor". Guests were very loud until 3 a.m. I ended up calling the front desk to intervene. Next time I will bring my ear plugs. My room was recently renovated and clean.

There isn't an option for negative stars on the rating section. They were/are terrible. They were unbelievably rude to guests of my friends wedding and the bride and groom themselves. They didn't get all that they paid for, ruined the cake, tried to push the reception early, tried kicking us out an hour early, and much more. Really? You pissed... More

Stayed recently while in MSP for business. The hotel is located across the street from my office so is very convenient. Can also be accessed through the skywalks which I'm sure is the only way to go in the winter. Staff even provided a skywalk map when I checked in. We walked to the Twins game one evening and the...

Found room to be clean, ammenities were very nice. Decor was impressive. Room needed a mini-fridge, but otherwise nothing much to complain about. Shower water pressure was good, and plenty hot.
