“Good stay at the Marriott City Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I stayed at this Marriott while I attended a conference. I had a good view from my room, and I found the hotel to be clean and inviting. This hotel is in a good location for attending Twins or Viking games. The hotel is also located on the sky-walk, through which most of downtown Minneapolis can be accessed.

Up to date and nicely located if you have business in downtown Minneapolis. The bi-level rooms up on the 31st floor are quite interesting with exceptional views of the city and suburbs. The concierge lounge is a very good one. Excellent breakfast. Good access to the skywalk (direct from floor 2 of the building) and the light rail (about 3-4 blocks).

Room Tip: If you can get up on 31, it is a very unique room with two levels and hug windows.

Modern and comfortable downtown hotel, convenient to many good restaurants. Excellent service across property, including front door, maids, front desk, restaurant, bar. Good food and good wine selection. Will stay here on my next visit to the twin cities.

Room Tip: As high as possible to escape street noise.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stayed four nights beginning August 10 (first two days for leisure, last two days on business). Our room was the Executive Suite which was a corner room on the 25th floor with a city view.

The hotel itself is very good. It's clean and modern and the staff is helpful and efficient. They have a nice bar with a daily happy hour, and the food selections are somewhat better than typical hotel bar food. The coffee and food served at our business functions was good.

Our room was spacious with a king bed and a large sitting area. The TV was large and high-def, and there was an excellent selection of channels. Since it was a corner room we had great city views from two different perspectives.

I do wish the fitness center had included a pool. Also the daily parking charge seemed a little high at $19, and there's a charge for in-room wireless internet. That's a negative as most places offer it free these days.

The location is a mixed bag. On the plus side, it's right downtown and the area is very walkable. There are tons of restaurants and plenty of shopping, and there's a park and a sculpture garden just a short distance away. The weather was fantastic and we had a joyous time just walking around and doing some exploring (this was our first visit to downtown Minneapolis).

There is one big downside: the hotel is a few blocks away from a hospital, and you can hear the ambulance sirens ALL NIGHT LONG. Our sleep quality was very, very poor, so unless you're a heavy sleeper it's a huge drawback. Obviously this is not the fault of the hotel or the staff, but it's still something to consider if you're deciding whether or not to stay there.

We stayed in a standard single king bed room. Our view was of the Radisson immediately across the street so nothing exciting here. The room size was somewhat small but adequate and the style of the room was up to date. The bed was great, better than my own at home. There was a single serving coffee maker, 32" TV which was connected to some sort of integrated television service that was so extremely slow to navigate that I gave up and turned it off. No fridge or microwave. The bathroom had an older style tub, good temperature and pressure on the water. Besides the tub the rest of the bath was up to date.

The main lobby was stylish and busy with people. The staff were all friendly and attentive to the guests. Adjacent to the lobby was a bar with plenty of people even after midnight , and the free wifi in the lobby was being used by many. There is relatively high volume ambiance music in the lobby at all times so I can't imagine myself being able to concentrate on work in the environment if I had to. The Parking was easy in the adjacent public ramp and for $19 paid at the front desk they'll give you a magnetic card you use to exit the ramp and it gives you in and out privilege for 24 hours.

Was in town on a busy weekend. Had originally add the reservation via hotels.com. When we got there they had us (3 adults) assigned to a queen bed. That wasn't going to work. The woman who checked us in started doing some magic on her computer, and despite the hotel being fully booked, she found us a king and comped us a rollaway bed. The staff was great. The rooms were spotless. Had one meal at the restaurant which was good. If you eat there, ask for Ellyn. She is the best!
