My partner and I stayed here recently for our 1 year anniversary. They recently renovated, and the rooms are gorgeous. I say this as someone who loves hotels, and has stayed in some that are supposedly "nicer" than this one, but which have outdated decor. No such issues here! The bedrooms are so stylish, comfortable, and beautiful. The bathrooms are... More

Nice hotel in a somewhat dumpy if "up and coming" neighborhood right next to the west campus of the Univ. of Minnesota. But the best access to all areas of the twin cities. I had reunions in Roseville, at the same time as sightseeing in Minneapolis and I was right next to the highway and within 20 minutes of all... More

It was a great stay. It was a beautiful, stylish room. This was not a hotel in need of an update. The rooms were spotless, the lobby was beautiful and the people very friendly and helpful. It was quiet and felt like we had the floor to ourselves. The only drawback to this hotel is that you do pay for... More

Thank you so much for your review! Yes, we are brand new, having recently completed a $17 million renovation. The adjacent parking facility is a public garage and we are happy to have ample parking available. The $17 cost is very competitive for the downtown market. There is alternative parking available at a lower rate however it is surface parking... More

When I booked here, I wasn't expecting too much—I thought it would be clean, comfy and have necessary amenities. And I wasn't disappointed. But I was pleased to find that it was, well, just a bit nicer than the usual place. Everything seems to be done with just a tad more attention to detail. When you check in, the desk... More

Nothing to get excited about, but a convenient location just a few blocks from UMN. Very convenient to the light rail. Since it's by the university, there's restaurants and bars nearby, although I didn't try any.

Stayed her for leisure this past weekend and to pretty much sum up my stay I'll just this was the best Courtyard I've ever stayed at. The rooms were very clean and up to date. I got a king bed with a nice view. Room was kind of small but good enough for my boyfriend and I. The only thing... More

As a Marriott enthusiast and rewards member I tend to sway towards the brands for my business stays. This Courtyard definitely set the bar high for other Courtyards! I never stayed here before so was unsure exactly what I was in for but the second I stepped foot inside I knew it'd be a good experience. The lobby area is... More

We went to visit campus, specifically the West Bank. We were right in the middle of the Four Corners area and it was great! Access to everything and within 15-30 minute walk of all the campus buildings we needed to see. It is a bit pricey and their rates change during the week, but this place is all about location....

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
