I needed a hotel for one night while visiting the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. I didn't want to spend a lot, but needed a good location since I'm not familiar with the area and did not want to drive around much. Other reviews for this hotel were accurate, very helpful!
If you want to be close to campus, like great pub food and beer, and don't mind a basic yet good restaurant breakfast, this is a great choice. It was all these things, plus very clean, modern and fairly easy to get to. Parking seemed high at $17/night though the U of M discount was fairly generous, so I was fine paying it. The front desk service was superb, answering all our questions and showing sincere concern when we asked for a BandAid.
We had dinner directly across the street at Republic, and it was awesome. We had breakfast in the hotel. They have a Starbucks, and offer things like fruit & yogurt cups to eggs with the works. We had a drink at the bar and the bar staff were very friendly and offered us samples of the local beers.
The only negative for me was no fan in the bathroom. There were 4 of us taking showers and a fan would have been nice.
If my daughter attends the University, I will definitely stay here again.
