I was surprised when I walked in as the lobby reminded me more of a Marriott than a Courtyard. It was very late when we arrived, but you would not know it by the friendly smiling staff who was very kind to greet us. The room was very spacious clean and quiet. Breakfast service the next morning was prompt and... More

I just had the opportunity to spend the night and conduct a seminar at the Courtyard by Marriott in Minneapolis, MN. I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past when the hotel was under the Holiday Inn flag. The new owners have spent approximately $17 million on renovations. However, no matter how much is spent on upgrades,... More

My husband and I are regular travelers to the campus area (this hotel is not downtown, no matter how much they want you to think it is) and we now have three decent hotels to choose from, which is great. However, we received a handicapped room, but was not informed of this at check-in. Counter heights etc are not appropriate... More

Still some housekeeping kinks to work out in this totally renovated Courtyard: my room wasn't ready at 3pm, got sent up to a dirty room 20 minutes later, finally ended up on the 13th floor and saved $20/night over the "city view" on the 14th floor. Stayed 4 nights, the last night I returned after 12 hours out to find... More

I must admit that this almost too nice to be a Courtyard instead of a regular Marriott. I was very happily surprised and impressed with its renovation. Location is near the University and there are nice restaurants within walking distance.

This hotel is cheaper then the downtown hotels but still nice and centrally located. Decor has improved since it switch ownership, easy walking distance to some of Minneapolis best attractions and an easy bus connection to others.
