The Commons Hotel has a great vibe to it, and is very comfortable. Convenient to the light rail to get down town or Mall of America and airport too. It is located in the heart of the U's campus and convenient to all of the major sporting and fine arts venues too.

The hotel has great style and a welcoming staff. The location is very convient as it sits right on campus and just off the light rail station, making travel to and from the airport a breeze. I will stay at the Commons for all future buisness trips to UMN.

Excellent group of reservation agents at this hotel; professional, mature, knowledgeable. I often make reservations for out of town visitors and have always had great customer service from this hotel. If there is a problem, they take care it. If there is a special request, they make so. I am a worrier; and they understand!

Can't say enough good about this hotel's remodel. GREAT JOB!! The hotel is beautifully decorated. The rooms are spacious, the decor is top of the line, the beds are heavenly, the soaps are FANTASTIC! Really a nice place. We were very happy staying there for our visit to the University Hospital.

I have lunch meetings here- Alberto, the Doorman/Valet is a wonderful ambassador; even during a snowstorm where all around him is somewhat chaotic. The public rooms nice; food for lunch events good; fresh and served efficiently. Great for meetings in the U of M area.

I have been there twice for business trips. Had very positive experience both times. Rooms were clean and reasonably sized, bed sheets and towels were spotless, and the surrounding area offers a wide range of dining choices.

Hotel room was ok, not great. Seemed like it had been wiped down, not cleaned. Could hear EVERYTHING the people in the room next door said and did. We booked via Hotwire but had to give our credit card for incidentals. We wound up with two $15 charges and one $5 charge from the hotel. One of the $15 charges... More

The staff was wonderful and smiling, pleasant and helpful. Bed very comfortable and the room modern in detail. Also quite spacious for a King bed room. Elevators were very fast for an 8 floor hotel that was full on this Saturday night. Great place to stay for any U of MN activity.
