“Cool property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The rooms are comfortable and minimalist. My suite was very spacious with a couple of original works of art in the main space. The bed was very comfortable and the room service breakfast was above-average, even for a hotel of this caliber. The service was very friendly and attentive. Also, I really enjoyed the neighborhood's restaurants and theaters - it's situated right in the heart of MSP's arts district and an easy biking distance to most sites.

The only downside is that some of the rooms can be noisy. There's a cheesy roof-top lounge across the street.

We received a night's stay gift certificate and were very excited to try this hotel. The accommodations were luxurious. Very classic, European, artsy. The gourmet breakfast was nothing short of outstanding. The rainshower showerhead was fantastic. The featherbed made us not want to get up. Once we did, however, we noticed the multiple stains on the sheets and the dream was shattered. Ick. The sheets and pillowcases had old, brown stains. Lots of them. I can't believe the staff didn't notice when preparing the room. The location was perfect. The staff were superb. Hard to walk away without the willies, though, after seeing the bed.

Room Tip: Stay off the loud courtyard unless you want to enjoy the music until midnight. We had an alley view...

We had a tough time choosing whether to stay in Minneapolis or St. Paul and we're glad we chose Minneapolis. There's lots to do downtown and it's more vibrant that Minneapolis - though they are so close that with a car, it's easy to get between them.

This hotel is quite modern but the beds are soooo comfortable that I'll admit I wanted to stay in bed instead of sight-seeing! Shower was very cool and there is plenty of storage space in the room! Valet parking is expensive but the convenience is worth as downtown parking is tricky.

Room Tip: I'd pick rooms that are away from the elevators as that's where the action tends to be. We s...

Nice hotel with friendly staff. An elderly women desk clerk needs some remedial training. Bell staff great. Booked a one bedroom suite and it wasn't. They called it an executive suite. We would return as the location is great for theater and shopping. We were there for a wedding and the venue could not have been better. The catering was very good, flawless

Blacklake,
Thank you for taking the time to share your Le Méridien experience with the Trip Advisor community. It’s good to know that you had a wonderful wedding experience which Le Méridien is known for by providing such a beautiful backdrop for such a special occasion.
Our apologies that there was a misunderstanding of your executive suite; do to the layout of this particular suite not having a separate sleeping quarters, we want to make sure that Le Méridien is not classifying or communicating this as a 1 bedroom suite. We will definitely look into this and make sure that our verbiage is clear across all booking platforms and associates moving forward.
Thank you again for helping us continue to provide outstanding experiences at Le Méridien Chambers Minneapolis. See you soon.

Best,

Le Méridien Chambers

The prime location of the hotel and the size, cleanliness, and layout of the luxury suites is what would bring me back to this venue. The floor to ceiling windows on the street side provided amazing views of the rooftop activity at the clubs across the street.

That being said, it was very noisy until 2pm each evening - but we were out until almost that time each night anyway so didn't mind. Leave the curtains open for the maximum downtown experience at night - the lights, sights, and sounds are energizing!

Rooms along Hennepin Ave or 9th are likely more noisy than rooms inside the courtyard.

The rain shower and large tub was wonderful. Valet parking was easy. Getting around town on the bicycle cabs is way more fun than using car cabs.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors for reduced street noise. Late night noise is substantial from the clubs acro...

Booked Le Meridien since a lot of my other choices were already full. I have to admit that all though this hotel wasn't my style it was very nice none-the-less. Unlike some of the other reviews we did not experience any noise issues nor was the room small. We didn't book an accessible room but ended up with one which made for a lot more room then a normal room.The room was well appointed and was very clean.

Being an accessible room the bathroom was huge! The sink in the room wasn't particularly useful however. I don't know if it was because we were in an accessible room or because it was chosen for the look. It was very shallow and you could barely wash your hands without water going over the sides.

The lobby is quite small but it has a very nice garden lounge/restaurant which was nice for a couple drinks. The hotel is well located near a whole bunch of nice restaurants and shopping. Its also really close to the train which we used to go to the Mall of America. Overall it was a good stay despite the weird art all over the place.

Clean, large room and comfy bed. Nice location for any theater or first-ave concert. Room key gets you into Walker for free. Hotel has a gallery which was cool and a nice outdoor loungey area. Only complaint was parking fee crazy high. By the time you tip the valet you've spent $40 to park 15 hrs? Oh well, room was great so I recommend this spg hotel.
