this property is in some serious need of improvments--or better yet, a complete tear down. Parking lot appears to be falling apart, lobby has holes in the ceiling and over all this property is just weathered. I would certainly pass on this property and try something else. next business trip I will be staying in Minneapolis or the Saint Paul... More

I stayed in the Crowne Plaza already several times and it was always "kind of okay". This time I stayed for 3 weeks, got a very small room although I asked for a big one, but it was nicely refurbished. That is the positive side of it. The negative sides are: Absolutely poor WIFI (not usable for work), the 3... More

Stayed one night this last weekend in order to attend a wedding. We did not heed other reviews to stay somewhere else until renovation is complete- it's very good advise. We had 4 rooms, and only one was renovated. That one was nice; the other three were very "tired", as was lobby area and garage. Views were great. Staff friendly.

We stayed here the night we went to the Vikings game at tcf bank stadium. Clean rooms, close to the light rail, and right on the river. Cheaper than staying in Minneapolis and not so hectic downtown. Close to many nice restaurants, bike share, and bus routes as well.

........if you review this hotel Terrible or Poor. The people in Minnesota are always friendly, and the same very much applies to the staff of this hotel. It's not their fault that the previous owners didn't invest in the property for two decades. The staff at the reception and in the breakfast room were very helpful, and that makes a... More

The stay was the way it is suppose to be and the view over the River is great. The Crown was the host hotel for a running biking event that I participated in and they managed it well. We self parked next door in a large SUV and it worked well for large city parking.

I have two basic needs from a hotel room during business trips. The room needs to be clean and available. During a recent business trip to St. Paul, the Crowne Plaza failed on both accounts.
