I stayed here two nights on my last business trip. Nicely remodeled since my last stay two years ago. The staff were quite friendly and check in was quick. I stayed on the seventh floor, away from the elevators and vending. Room was spacious and quiet. No view but I didn't care. The only annoying thing was the lighting. Very... More

I needed a hotel for one night while visiting the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. I didn't want to spend a lot, but needed a good location since I'm not familiar with the area and did not want to drive around much. Other reviews for this hotel were accurate, very helpful! If you want to be close to campus,... More

The rooms are very comfortable, clean and quiet. Check-in was quick and the front desk staff was helpful with questions about restaurants and activities. We were in town for a wedding and the rates were very reasonable. There are several restaurants very close. The only negative is that the hotel charges $17 a night for parking in an adjoining city...

Had booked two weeks prior for three nights. I show up at 11pm and I was informed that they gave away my room. I kid you not. Manager was useless and offered no help in getting anything beyond a single night in another random hotel. I've never even heard of that happening before.

Stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding . Price was fantastic, close to lots of activities and the University. Rooms were clean and modern. Only drawback was the parking but for a downtown hotel it was okay

As a premier member of Marriott, was I surprised by the sheer size of the 'King Suite' rooms which are on the end of each floor. I asked the front desk if the building had been renovated or if it was newly constructed - renovated was the answer. Needless to say, my King Suite room had a very large and... More

It was our first time ever visiting MN, we stayed here during our business trip. We absolutely loved the view from our room on the 13th floor! We loved that we could see the beautiful city! Food, gas etc was very convenient to where we were staying. If you love Chipotle or bars etc you'll love staying here because it's... More

We went up for the Vikings game and some family time. The hotel was great and close to green line light rail. We ended up walking back to the hotel from the Viking game which was nice ans safe. We got back to the hotel exhausted but the room was awesome and when we asked the front desk for a... More

Nice new Courtyard. Within walking distance of the green line and just a sort hop to Nicolett mall. $6 ticket buys you all day on the transit system. Typical Marriott predictability. Two nice restaurants (Town Brewery and the Republic) within 50 yards. Parking is next door and runs $17/night. Great for tourists as well as business that wants to be... More

The staff is really friendly, the rooms are super clean, and the beds are ridiculously comfortable (I seriously could've laid in that bed for a full day without moving). The location is great, with a light rail station just a block away. My only complaint, is that parking is a little expensive (but this is Minneapolis, after all). Will definitely... More
