“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

Stayed here for one night during a business conference. A little expensive but a great location and love the entrance which is an old bank. Nice, clean room with an excellent shower, bed and flat screen LCD TV. Would definitely stay here again. Good to see Westin knows how to do it right as it had been a while since I stayed in one of their properties.

Great rooms, neat lobby. Only negative is parking is always expensive. The experience I always expect from Westin. Food at The Bank is excellent.

Stayed at the Westin Mpls for my sister's wedding for the weekend. Amazing room service food and great cocktails at The Bank. By far my family's favorite hotel in Minneapolis!

Our daughter was married Labor Day weekend and the Minneapolis Westin was our choice for out-of-town guests. Jill Halfond made organizing the weekend easy for me, and our guests all raved about the comfortable rooms and excellent service. The hotel's location on the light rail line made it possible for our guests to experience the city without renting cars. I enthusiastically recommend the Minneapolis Westin for visitors to the Twin Cities.

The Westin was the "headquarters hotel" for our daughter's September 10th wedding.

As we live in the far western suburbs and the bride, groom and groom's family all live in the DC area, we needed a location that was close the the south Mnneaplos wedding site and the downtown rehearsal dinner and reception sites, where everyone could stay for the entire weekend. The Westin worked beautifully.

Their friendly, professional and accommodating staff worked with us every step of the way-from reserving a block of rooms at an exceptionally reasonable rate, making on-line reservations easy and conveniently linked to the couple's wedding website, to facilitating a post-rehearsal dinner party in the beautiful and intimate Platinum room, and finally to arranging the Sunday morning brunch for our out-of-town guests in the beautiful BANK restaurant before they flew home.

Our room was lovely and spacious enough for the bride to make all of her wedding preparations, and the suite provided to the wedding couple was a luxurious and relaxing space in which to unwind after all the festivities.

We were also able to take some fantastic wedding photos on the grand staircase and in the extraordinary Art-Deco lobby.

The Westin was a key factor in making our daughter's wedding experience perfect in every way!

One of the nicest business hotels I've ever stayed at. Challenging getting hotel reservations due to hotel's popularity. Elegent decor - hotel occupies a former bank - bar/restaurant is located in the lobby. Nice rooms, friendly GM. Nice gym. Pool small but typical of city hotels. Friendly staff. Business center ins complimentary, which is a +. I don't think you'll get any better in Minneapolis. Walking distance to corporate centers and Minneapolis stadiums/arenas. You won't go wrong staying here...

In August, my wife and I used the Westin Minneapolis as the home base for our wedding. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles and the wonderful white tea aroma floating through the air. My bride and her friends all got ready in the well appointed and spacious penthouse. Even with the bride, 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, 2 makeup artists, 2 photographers and 2 videographers, there was still plenty of room. The only thing better than the penthouse was the quite suite we were able to escape to as the wedding party came back to the penthouse to continue to celebrate. The Westin Minneapolis was a perfect choice for us and our group!
