My husband and I visited for a long 4th of July weekend. Let me start by saying that in my opinion, this is not a downtown hotel. I would classify the location as a university location. I was expecting to be in the heart of downtown, which this is not. The location, however, is excellent for freeway access. The lobby... More

Check-in was very efficient and friendly and the room was great, including a view of downtown Minneapolis. Our only complaint was the shower design - only half of the door was sliding and it was opposite the faucet so you couldn't avoid the cold water hitting you or getting your hair wet; I ended up using a back scratcher to...

I booked the hotel with my Marriott employee rate, which is one of the reasons why I chose to stay. Upon check in, the staff at the desk were all very friendly, I believe it was Dylan (my apologies if this wasn't correct) who helped me out. When I entered the room I noticed that some of the glasses were... More

We were told a block of rooms was reserved for the out of town guests for our son's wedding and shuttle service would be provided to and from the hotel to the McNamara Center. We rented a suite to provide hospitality. The rooms were, in fact on several different floors and the shuttle service was very slow. Because of privacy,... More

We had a king room on the 10th floor. The room was spotless, the bed very comfortable, and the updating was very nice. The pillows were a bit hard, but other than that I have no complaints. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel is very close to restaurants, and a short drive to the medical facilities at... More

The decor is fantastic and rooms are very clean and comfortable. However, there was lots of noise from both the hallway and other rooms constantly. Even halfway down the hall I could hear the ding of the elevator. I heard every room door slamming, toilet flushing, etc. Maybe it's the hardscape tile in the front entry of the room? The... More

I use to stay at this hotel for many years prior to Marriott taking it over and renovating the property. I must say I am very pleased with my most recent stay and they have done an excellent job updating the hotel. This was my first stay with it as a Marriott and I will stay here again in the... More

Recently our daughter had surgery at Fairview Riverside, and we needed a nearby hotel at which to stay during the night before surgery and on several following nights. We were delighted to find that the Courtyard Downtown Minneapolis was near the hospital, had a restaurant and friendly, helpful personnel, and - best of all - offered a shuttle to the... More

The Courtyard Minneapolis is an excellent hotel for staying in town. Great access to local bars, restaurants and outdoor activities (U of M, new stadium, bike trails, etc). Staff is very friendly and helpful...notably Rachel who goes out of her way to help people that are new to the area (remembers your name!). Highly reccomend the hotel

We love this hotel! It was so close to perfect... except for the parking. They've renovated all of the rooms which were clean and up to date. The location was excellent for us, it's in the heart of a cool theater district and the West Bank UMN campus but close to the East Bank campus too. Lots of cool bars... More
