I absolutely loved the Common's Hotel. Ws hosted a group of 5 for a two day corporate event and everyone was beyond pleased. The location is great on campus surrounded by beautiful buildings and view of the river. The staff was very accomodating and the rooms were very clean and modern. The hotel has a very hip trendy feel to... More

My daughter wanted to visit the University of Minnesota. Never having been there, I can say that we were very lucky to have chosen to stay over night at The Commons Hotel. It located right in campus very close to Jones Hall. We got in rather late but the two young men at the desk were very friendly and helpful.... More

Once you've gone past the lobby, the hotel is pretty much unremarkable and rather boring, with a pretty small standard room, but the bed is comfy, shower works fine and you can't hear noise from adjacent rooms which is great. Located in the university area, all the restaurants around are pretty much student/small budgets orientated, so if you want some... More

We stayed three nights at the beginning of a short US vacation. We loved the university location, truly wonderful lobby and had a very pleasant room. The hotel's own bar served good food and wine, and there are many cheap eats close by. There is a light rail system station almost adjacent to the hotel, so we were ideally placed... More

I stayed at the Commons hotel, room 507 for 2 nights (May 26-28, 2015) on a business trip. The hotel was *very* nice. We were allowed early check-in (though this could have been that we were lucky and our rooms happened to be ready) at about 9:30 am. The hotel is just one block away from Keller hall and has...

Our stay was made very comfortable all because of the exception service we received by the staff at this beautiful hotel. We especially are thankful for the level of care we received from Riley in guest services. He took excellent care of us on all levels and has the best sense of humor. This is an excellent Hotel and it... More

Stayed here for a conference in May 2015 and was really impressed by how cute it was being situated in the middle of the U of M's campus. Lots of cute little restaurants in its vicinity (loved having a Starbucks on the property) and not horribly far from Downtown Minneapolis as well...although, if you drive, parking is not free...and if...

As a world traveler, it's hard to get excited about <b>another</b> hotel. We attended a wedding reception here and spent the night. The reception included the best banquet food I can remember... at least in a very long time. The wait staff was friendly, attentive, and speedy. For a "conference" hotel, this one is special. It is on the campus... More

Excellent and friendly staff. Helped with all of my requests. Pleasant restaurants and bar on-site. Great location for visiting the University, as located in the middle of campus. Light rail stops close to front door. .

My maid of honor rented the VIP suite here for my bachelorette party. They were especially accomodating from the very start. The room could be lovely for a couple, but once the couch folded out and they brough a cot, five adults slept in it comfortably. We made use of the bar, but were dissappointed by the limited functioning of... More
