“Had a great deal with valet parking...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

First trip to MSP area with the family, and we really enjoyed this hotel. Did not eat there, however there are places close by for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We usually stay where we get free breakfast, however the price was right and we kept walking to Key Cafe for breakfast which was awesome. The people were very friendly and the place is clean and close to everything. Neat town Minneapolis - nice people.

Thank you for the fantastic review of our property Maynard_Marc! It sounds like you booked one of our valet packages but next time if you enjoy free breakfast, look into one of our breakfast packages, which is also a great deal! I hope you tried some of the fabulous bakery items at Key's; the Key Lime Pie is our favorite! Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.
Best Wishes,

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Amazing service and hotel. This was my first time to Minneapolis, and my boyfriend and I drove down from Canada. I was looking for a nice clean hotel at a reasonable price, and I found all of those things and more at this hotel.

When I first researched hotels in downtown Minneapolis, this hotel had a very competitive rate but also had packages that included valet parking and complementary wifi. Other hotels in the downtown core, had similar prices but charged additional amounts for parking and wifi internet, which made the cost per night significantly higher. This place is definitely the best value for your money.

The hotel room was extremely clean and comfortable. The beds were excellent and I especially enjoyed the large glass enclosed shower (much better than your run of the mill bath tub). The flatscreen TV's had many channels to choose from, perfect for a night in.

My boyfriend and I went to Minneapolis to celebrate our 6 year anniversary, and this hotel went over and beyond to make this a special weekend for us. I want to personally thank Thea (front desk), for making this weekend memorable and special. I travel A LOT around the USA and this by far was the best customer service I have ever received.

I highly suggest anyone looking for a hotel to stay here! I know a lot of fellow Canadians that make routine trips to Minneapolis, and I will certainly be recommending they stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Minneapolis Downtown location.

We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us for the Twins game Marc H. Target field is beautiful! Maybe once you see all the baseball fields we will be lucky enough to have you back for the beginning of the football stadium tour! By that time we will even have a new field, a must see if you ask us. :)
Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

Very nice hotel, easy interstate access. We were able to get a package that included parking and breakfast. We were in town for a Twins game and it was a longer walk than I anticipated. If we were to come to Minneapolis for a Twins game in the future I would probably book something closer to Target Field. However, for other activities it's a good location, friendly and helpful staff and modern.

The 10 block walk from our location can get a little long, especially with the warm weather we have been having. Nicollet mall makes for a perfect half way point pit stop for dinner or drinks if you'd rather break up the walk. Otherwise, we do have a shuttle that leaves from our property one hour before the game starts or town cars that will bring you for a flat rate of $7.00. I apologize this information was not extended to you while you were here. But please, think of us next time you're in the area, but if you do decide to book elsewhere, we hope you have as great of an experience as you did with us!
Thanks for your review Elizabeth!

We usually stay exclusively at Embassy Suites but preferred this location so we took a chance. We got the valet parking and breakfast package which was a great deal and well worth the extra $20. The staff is well schooled in customer service and go out of their way to be friendly and make you comfortable. The buffet breakfast was better than the last 3 Embassy Suites we've stayed at. The wait staff brings you your eggs or pancakes after you order them from the buffet line. Nice touch. The fresh fruit included strawberries, grapes and pineapple in addition to the usual melons. Another nice touch. We had a problem with our room air conditioning turning off which was fixed quickly, efficiently and with great apologies and a snack bag. Another nice touch.
I would absolutely stay at this property again and also consider Hilton Garden Inn in other venues.

Room Tip: The higher up rooms give you a great city view.

cjlifecycle- Thank you for such a fantastic Trip Advisor review. You must have booked our 'Summer in the City' package that we are currently offering; it is such a great deal! Parking is typically $24 and breakfast $12.95 per adult, the extra $20 still saves you a lot of money and makes the trip extremely convenient. We are happy you found your experience with us so enjoyable and we hope to see you again soon!

Very good location if you are attending any meetings in the convention center. Plenty of parking around so if you don't mind a short walk you can park cheaper than the valet parking that the hotel has. The hotel was clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. Easy access to 94 and 35 E. I took my bike and bike and many super nice trails in the area.
