We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I think I had lower expectations because of the proximity to the Xcel Energy Center, but it was great. The parking ramp was close, the rooms were nice, bed was comfy and who knew that they had a little pool and hot tub. Breakfast in the attached restaurant was one of the best... More

And that's not a bad thing. The hotel is right across from the Xcel Center, surrounded by restaurants and bars and other attractions that you can easily walk to. Parking was an extra $15/day - but getting in and out of their parking garage was easy, even in my F150. The rooms themselves are small, but are well appointed with... More

so very convenient to the Excel Center, rooms were clean, but very crowed, 2 queen sized beds, desk and chair, and a arm chair, that you could use if you moved the desk chair, into the bathroom doorway, also the rod you pull up behind the sink tap, the one that lowers the sink plug, is so tightly squeezed in...

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times. All on a business trips traveling alone. To me, so long as there isn't an event at the Excel Center, it's a great place to stay. The rooms are nice and clean; the staff is friendly; the nearby area has a good vibe with good restaurants and Pubs within a block... More

On vacation from the UK for a week we had 3 Minnesota Wild games to take in, this place is literally opposite the Excel Energy Centre so perfect for hockey and gigs. The Liffey Pub is onsite and is rocking before and after games. We had a room on the top floor (8th) facing the river, it was nice and... More

Stayed here to attend the Monster Dash race. Clean hotel, rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. The location is excellent - close to the Excel Energy centre for hockey games, concerts and close to pubs and restaurants --all within walking distance. The Liffey Pub is onsite as well. Good food and drinks. We'll be back

This hotel is the perfect set up for anyone visiting or attending Xcel Energy Center. Up until this coming March, I have stayed in this hotel every time the old WCHA and now Big Ten hockey Tournament is played.. The rooms are very nice, bathrooms need upgrade a bit, no fan or vent..

If you are going to Xcel center this hotel is perfect, literally across the street. The beds were great and the rooms were very clean. Parking is $14 per day. There is a bar/restaurant in the hotel and several others choices down 7th street.
