I stay here to particiapte in on campus recruiting. The hotel is located on campus which isn't even what is best about it. It is lovely, staff is great, bed was nice, linens and towels were top notch. This is a great place to say...I left relaxed and refreshed and that doesn't happen often when traveling for business!!

Keurig coffee maker in each room. Also very clean and nice bed sheets and towels. The shampoo, conditioner, and soap was also of good quality. The entire hotel is very clean, chic, and stylish. I did not eat at the restuarant, but the menu looked good.

We stayed here this passed weekend when we went to the Vikings game. Everything you could possibly need was just a short walk away. The beds were kind of hard but the six pillows made up for it! I absolutely loved the bathroom. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

We stayed here last weekend when the Vikes played the Patriots. The room was nice, a bit smaller than I expected for the upgrade to a superior king room @ $270. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel is within short walking distance to TCF Bank Stadium. The green line tran station is just outside the entrance. We... More

Had an excellent one night stay at The Commons this past weekend. The hotel was buzzing with activity since their popularity is soaring with their uber convenient proximity to the U of M stadium housing this season's Vikings games. (Literally a 5 minute walk away). The staff is friendly, courteous and happy to go out of their way to help... More

Beds are beyond comfortable, towels are soft, caribou keurig in each room and The Beacon has amazing and spicy bloody Mary's! You really couldn't ask for more, especially with the fair rates! We started here years ago when it was under another name and it was nice. Now it has updated furnishings, fun decor and very cool lobby. Crazy busy... More

I stayed at this hotel while I was attending a workshop at the University of Minnesota. Needless to say, the location was perfect. The interior of the hotel is completely renovated. My room was nicely decorated, very comfortable, and extremely clean. The tram stop right outside makes it very easy to reach downtown and the airport. I would definitely return... More
