Everything was great except that the room we were in with two queen beds left absolutely no room to move around. There were four of us in the room and had to take turns getting off the beds to move around. It was crazy small.

We stayed two nights and will go back again! The hotel is connected to many other buildings in the downtown area (including the Xcel Center) so we never had to walk outside if we didn't want to! The Hotel was under construction but it was still clean and we were always a priority. Very helpful staff too!

Stayed here during Christmas break. It was a 9 member (3 room) mini Vacay to see a Jets vs Wild hockey game. Great location. 5 minute walk from the Xcel Energy Centre. The floor we were on had already been renovated room wise. They were very nice & modern. Decor was simple but elegant. The showers were fantastic. The pool... More

We stayed here in mid-January to attend a Wild game and took advantage of the "Event" pkg offered. Our room was a corner king business--beautifully decorated with spectacular views of the river and downtown (we could see all the way to Mpls!). We had stayed in this hotel about 8 years ago, almost the same room, when it was under... More

A friend and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza while in town to run the Women Rock half marathon. It was a good location and a nice hotel. Beautiful entry way and lobby, however, it was under renovation at the time so there were parts that were a little messy. Our room was nice, but the air conditioner didn't appear... More

We were in a renovated room looking out over the river. Styling was modernistic and minimalist, decorated in grays, whites and blacks. Room TV had one of the best free options for TV programs, sports and movies. I loved the new marble installed in the lobby and rooms. The restaurant served very good food, buffet or menu for mornings and... More

The hotel has been going through a significant renovation that seemingly has been taking forever! 'We were given a renovated room.

I'm disappointed to hear that your stay with us was anything besides excellent. I hope you'll understand that this remodeling is being done on quite a large scale, and that the construction crew has to adhere to very strict hours in order to minimize disturbance to our guests, which is why it might take a little longer than expected.
