I am originally from Minneapolis and know that the location of this Sheraton used to be in a bad neighborhood. HOWEVER, it is adjacent to Abbott Northwestern Hospital and there is a new development behind the hotel that will have upscale shops and restaurants, etc, once it's completed, so the neighborhood is making many improvements.
We stayed at the Sheraton prior to a hospital stay and the hotel is absolutely beautiful!
Brand new...the rooms are spacious, flat screen TV's, king size bed with many pillows and comforter. Bathroom shower was awesome. Checked out the fitness room and pool. Very nice! Locker rooms were unlocked and unmonitored and that concerned me. You could walk right into the locker room from a main hallway, however you needed a room key to get into the pool area! This was all on a lower level and women who travel alone and might be using the workout facility in the evening, might want to be careful.
I would think that the hotel management would see the need and add locks, that would require room keys to enter, to those locker room doors, for the safety of their guests.
The front desk staff was very friendly. We did not try the restaurant or bar, but, they looked very nice. The hotel is about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown.
Free parking, so that is a bonus! At least when we stayed there. I suppose that could change, they were completing a parking ramp behind it, so who knows.
They offer hospital rates for family members. Must call hotel directly. Much appreciated!
