“Beautiful hotel !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Gorgeous hotel to stay at! Top of the line everything! Great for business travelers. Stayed here with some friends and we had a blast. The rooms are perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is in downtown so great to walk around if you have the time. There is valet service if you prefer or if you are cheap like us you park around the corner at a parkade! Nothing bad to say about this place at all. I would highly recommend staying here.

A decent hotel with more personality than your average Marriott that's right off the light rail's "Hiawatha" line. The front desk staff was very personable and they had a decent in-house restaurant/cocktail lounge, always a plus to not have to venture out for dinner. My room looked directly into an office window, which was ~20' away (the width of an alley), which made it feel a bit confining. Little things could have been improved: add another hook or towel rack in the bathroom; move the shower valve or the rainshower head so you can turn the water on and bring it to a comfortable temp without getting drenched. Watch out for room service - after 2 tries they still couldn't produce the simple pasta with garlic, olive oil, and fresh seasonal vegetables that was described on the menu.

Room Tip: Request a room that doesn't face SW or you'll be looking directly into the offices across th...

Stayed here one night with my wife. The lobby is very nice and the entire hotel is a landmark that has been restored.

There was some confusion around my Platinum gift but that got resolved. We also had a heating problem that was promptly fixed.

The rooms have high ceilings and modern decor. The are SMALL. Most (nearly all?) have little to no view as the hotel is "boxed in" by other taller properties around it.

Parking was an expensive $30 but there are options within a block or two for less than half of that.

I've eaten lunch and Maxx (the only restaurant) several times, but this was my first breakfast. A buffet. It was average.

Bed was comfortable. Nice Bose wave radio in the room.

Carpet in the room could use a shampoo.

Room Tip: The 10th floor is the best but stay away from the concierge lounge unless you want to hear the door...

Excellent upscale and unique Marriott property within easy walking distance to light rail and Nicollett Mall. Nice, clean and quiet room. Large bathroom with large walk-in shower. Only complaint was the desk and desk chair were not conducive for work. The chair was quite uncomfortable and the desk was oddly placed such that there was very little room to work with the bed literally right behind the chair. Most rooms look at each other so not much for a view. Concierge lounge: staff was excellent, adequate seating, multiple large screen TVs, and average food selections.

Having no experience at all with hotels in Minneapolis, chosing the Hotel Minneapolis was a bit like buying a pig in a poke. Were we pleasantly surprised! The hotel was amazingly economical, but what we got for our tarrif was outstanding: Beautiful lobby, clean and extremely comfortable room with the best shower ever and lots of fluffy towels, an enormous flat screen tv, a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Nicolett Mall, and best of all, ta da!!: A two-minute walk to the light rail which goes DIRECTLY to the airport and costs $1.50, 75 cents for us because we're over 65.

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night while watching our daughter and son-in-law compete in the Medtronics Marathon.
This was the only category 4 Marriott property we could book in Minneapolis on late notice and it is a really good category 4 choice if you have some of those rewards from Marriott.
Our room which was large and well appointed came with 1 free breakfast buffet (very nice) and free valet parking.
The concierge lounge was poorly stocked on a weekend but there were soft drinks and pretzels available.
All in all it is a nice place and good value for your Marriott Rewards.

We got a great deal at this hotel so we figured we'd stay for our second time. Came to town for a night out, so the distance is a little bit further to get to the nightlife than other hotels but it was a very little price to pay. The beds are comfortable, the lobby is beautiful (and smelled amazing..whatever they use I want..), and the rooms are great (although a little small). Staff was friendly at checkin but god forbid you call down for something they act like its a chore to answer the phone.
We've stayed here twice and I'm sure we will again if the price is right (although not our first choice for downtown).

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor. The views in this hotel are terrible!
