We chose to stay here for the location...just steps out the door to some fun restaurants and pubs. Our room was spacious and clean (though no hairdryer in the bathroom) and our daughter loved the pool (it has a neat metal liner design and clean surrounding). We found the staff to be friendly; especially in the bar/restaurant area. Negatives are... More

This is a brand new Courtyard on the West Bank of the University of Minnesota just across the freeway from downtown. I believe the hotel is actually a refurbished Holiday Inn but it is very nice. We called it the 50 shades of gray hotel because the very trendy lobby and room decor is mostly grays, blacks and whites. As... More

Great things about this hotel were: very clean, beautiful decor, helpful staff, beautiful night view of the city of Minneapolis even if you don't pay extra to stay on the city view side. Very nice bedding, nice desk area with lots of surface space and conveniently located electrical outlets for charging and work. Great lighting. Comfortable reading chair with ottoman.... More

We stayed at the hotel for the KMOJ ShedG New Years Bash, overall this is a nice hotel, but extremely limited with their amenities. Nice staff at the front desk and bar. Room coffee meant for one and there is no complimentary anything meaning some sort of free offering in the lobby such as water or coffee would be a... More

What a fabulous New Year’s Party ShedG hosted. Thank you for staying and taking the time to share your feedback. My staff will especially appreciate your service comment as this is what they work so hard to achieve. I agree – it would be nice if the parking was attached to the hotel. Fortunately it’s only a few steps from... More

I choose this hotel because they had a swimming pool and I need to exercise to recover from surgery. However, getting in and out of the pool was very difficult...there were two toe holds in the side and no steps, not even the usual metal ones...high style but non-functional and certainly not accessible, since it was painful and scary getting...

OK so we booked our room coming from south dakota as 4 friends going to the Vikings game. Hotel is big and beautiful, first of all, parking was an absolute joke. We asked as we checked in where to park, they said in the public part...ok, we tried, nope, you need to buy a $17 a day parking pass. Fine.... More

This newly renovated, high rise hotel is very impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent three-night stay. The overall experience here is more like that in a first rate Hyatt or Intercontinental than that of typical mid-tier Courtyards. In fact, we liked this hotel better than the Marriott City Center in downtown Minneapolis where we usually stay when in the area... More
