staff very good, reasonable food options & excellent amenities. Parking a bit odd, not to have a hotel entrance, but hotel mitigates issue well. Great views from the gym & indoor pool. Great choice if you need to be near the University.

I stayed at the Courtyard for business for one night and had a good experience. The hotel is about 10 minutes by car from downtown Minneapolis and about 5-7 from the trendy Warehouse District. The rooms were a nice size and very comfortable. The bistro in the hotel lobby had a great breakfast with Starbucks coffee. It was also very... More

The room was very nice, I had a king size bed and a couch. The bed was very comfortable. It is not quite downtown, so please be aware in case you were looking for a place right in the middle of the city, but it is not too far. They have a city bike station right in front of the... More

Stayed in a great end room with fabulous view of downtown. Room was large, clean, and comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable in which I've slept, and I appreciated the extra pillows I had requested. Great location! Would definitely return to this hotel.

Nice property just be aware that parking is a mindboggling $17/day and that the hotel is not located downtown. They should change the name as it's very misleading. The rooms are a nice size and The Corner Bar across the street offers very cold beer.

Courtyard M, General Manager at Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown, responded to this review

I am deeply sorry you were not made aware of the area parking options prior to your arrival. We do our best to be as transparent as possible about guest parking and unfortunately came up short. While convenient, the adjacent ramp is not owned by the hotel and as you indicated does come at a cost. We are conveniently in... More

I stayed at this hotel just recently and I thought it was good! It seemed recently renovated and the lobby/restaurant area was very modern and really nice! It looked like it was busy because there was even a line to get into the elevator... The hotel in general was good, my only problem is that the rooms were sooooo small!!... More

Myself, my girlfriend and 2 other friends stayed here last weekend. We were in town to watch the Patriots beat the Vikings. We arrived on the Friday and was impressed that there were 3 different pubs right next to the hotel to hang out and grab drinks at. In total there are about 6 places to eat within steps of... More

My family stayed here for one night the night before I moved in at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. It is located just west of the West Bank part of the UMN campus. It is very close to I-35W and I-94 so it's easy to get to. There are a lot of restaurants within a three minute walk.... More

I stayed at this hotel while visiting Target HQ's in Minneapolis - and I was pleased that I chose this hotel. While not a 5 star hotel, I love that I know that the Courtyard will always provide courteous employees, spacious rooms, and great amenities (especially the Bistro). If you are visiting Target HQ's, know that you are not really... More

Recently stayed at the hotel while doing some college touring with my daughter. This was a great location and the hotel was clean with extremely friendly staff. Would staff again and for sure recommend to others.
