Okay, I must admit that we have loved this hotel in the past but this past week was a disaster. First, as soon as we arrived we spent over an hour trying to get internet service because we wanted to use Wi-fi to look up restaurants on TripAdvisor. After 28 minutes with the tech support, we were finally connected and... More

Stayed three nights at the Residence Inn Minneapolis Downtown and it was a great location. Very friendly and helpful front desk folks. Self-parking in the deck next door was $23/nt, but much cheaper than Chicago! Room was large and clean, with a full size refrigerator. The hotel was next to the Skyway access so easy to avoid the cold rain... More

The gal at the front desk was absolutely fabulous, the room was OK but you could certainly tell that it needed a significant upgrade. The sofa couch with someone comfortable you could not even sit on it. The chair in the open area was so worn it appeared to be 30 years old. The breakfast was OK, but with just... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown for a comedy event at the State Theater. The hotel's rooms are well done and clean, and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful! We chose this hotel due to it's central location to the restaraunt and show we planned to attend. Parking in the adjoining ramp does cost $16-$23.00/day, and the... More

The front desk is always cheerful and welcoming. The rooms are always spacious and clean. The furniture (red recliner in the living room) needs to be replaced with warn leather on the arms and seat. The bedding as with all Marriott properties is very soft, high thread count sheets. You self-park in the garage next door. It's easier than it... More

In town for a meeting at the convention center. I was able to take light rail from airport (cheap) and walk a couple blocks to hotel. Efficient check-in. Very clean and comfortable room. Used skywalk to get to meetings. Excellent breakfast. Helpful desk personnel.

As I drove up to the hotel I was put off by the very grey unassuming exterior and dated lobby. I felt disappointed, but the very warm greeting and care I got from the reception staff improved that, when I got to my room I was impressed, very well decorated soothing colors ( helped because I was agitated from a...
