I entered through the back door and was greeted by a long corridor that with the carpet and wood beams reminded me instantly of a Swiss chalet. I agree with an earlier reviewer the carpet really needs replacing. The facility is really three buildings within one which not only can be confusing but cause you to have to walk a bit to your elevators.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are pretty quiet. The AC works very well though it did turn on and off with a very audible click. There is free wifi, pool, gym and a laundry area. There is no free breakfast but there is an on site restaurant. I had breakfast twice and ordered the same thing. I was not blown away by the eggs and bacon bit they were consistent. The restaurant is in need of the Restaurant Impossible makeover crew.
The hotel is pretty well located. It is in walking distance of everything downtown. The Blue Line which runs from Target Field to Mall of America is three easy blocks away. There is a bus stop right outside the front door.
The bed was comfortable and for the first time in many nights I actually had a pillow with some support. The shower works well. There are plenty of towels provided. I did not turn on the TV though it looked nice. The bedside clock was very easy to set and see. It is one of those that you can insert your iPad into.
If I ever make it back to Minneapolis then I could see staying here again.
