Downtown Marriotts tend to have a more upscale feel than the Marriotts near airports or in suburban or rural areas. This Marriott in Downtown Minneapolis is pretty nice. The rooms are contemporary and very comfortable and the location is great--just a few blocks away from Target Field. Weekend room rates are reasonable too if you book ahead. By the way, you do have to sign a waiver about getting too loud so people may like to party here.

Pros: Great location (convenient to Target Field and connected to the Skyway), weekend room rates are not too high for a full service and slightly upscale feel, contemporary decor throughout the hotel, decent breakfast buffet, both valet and self parking are available

Cons: No in-room safe, you have to take three elevators to get to the self parking garage

Room Tip: If you are a Marriott Rewards Gold or Platinum member, you have a good chance getting upgraded to a...

We appreciate your comments regarding the hotel. Our location does make it convenient to Target Field, Target Center, and a number of local restaurants.

The hotel will start installing in-room safes toward the end of the year and we do offer safe deposit boxes through our front desk. We do ask our guests to sign weekend noise waiver to remind our guests to be considerate of others.

When you park your own car you do have to take 3 different elevators to get to your room. The hotel does offer a golf cart shuttle on the weekends to assist our guests with the arrival process.

Thank you again for your comments.

This hotel offers a very central location, great for the event we attended close by. As you find in other major cities, elevator to lobby and second set of elevators to room floor is a pain with luggage. Lobby bar is open late but noisy in the open floor design of the lobby level. Our room was compact and had a city view of an office building and parking garage. Room needed better cleaning (dusty, carpet dirty, surfaces not attended to). Perhaps it was a busy time with short turnover, we're usually happy with Marriott standards- this time was simply OK; I would stay here again if nothing better was available.

This Marriott is located between Nicollet Mall and Hennepin Avenue, perfect access ways to all the interesting spots in and around downtown. Light rail to/from airport for $2 is only a couple of blocks away. Approaching the hotel, one works oneselves through the crowds waiting at the bus station beside the hotel, then takes the elevator to the upper floor lobby and front desk. One might have to wait a bit if convention crowds are coming or going. My request for a higher floor and quiet room was accommodated with a smile. View from the tip of the triangular shaped hotel over the western part of the city. Modern, clean, well appointed room and bath - all you would expect from a Marriott. An in-room fridge would be nice though. The building across the street has huge roof top AC units whose engine/rotor sound is audible, but not too disturbing. Some street noise is funneling up to even rooms above the 20th floor.

Spent a weekend playing tourist (river walk, mill museum, farmers market, Walker modern art museum, sculpture garden = all in walking distance; MN Institute of Art and American Swedish Institute are a short bus ride, leaving from Nicollet Mall).

Was a group/meeting guest for three days and experienced good buffet breakfast and lunch. Staff was attentive all around. Good choice by my meeting organizer.

I stayed here in late June as a conference attendee. My room (a double) was clean and comfortable, and with the exception of the first night (in which the air conditioning didn't work properly), I slept well. The hotel is a short walk from the light rail, which was incredibly convenient, and it's within walking distance of a number of great restaurants (a great upscale Mexican restaurant is just around the corner). My only concern: while I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I was alarmed by some of the aggressive panhandlers who congregated just outside the hotel (this seems to be a problem for other hotels/establishments in the area, too). If I find myself in the Minneapolis area, I will definitely return to this hotel.

City Center is at the heart of the city. You can walk to the Target Center, to a Twins Game, to a Vikings Game or eat at a wide variety of restaurants. The best people watching restaurant is SEVEN at the end of the block. There is a mini store in the lobby where they have my kind of sustenance: Starbucks Coffee. I can live with that. The bar staff and concierge service is impeccable. My kids love the walkways with all of the shopping and the movie theater. They also love the Candy Shop across the street and we can never resist going in there.
I wouldn't think to stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room

Stayed here for a wedding. Everything went very smoothly. Customer service is exemplary, housekeeping was very responsive, felt very well accommodated throughout our stay.

Would definitely stay here again.

Only downside is the parking (similar to most hotels in big cities). Valet is very friendly and quick to help you out, but the parking garage is far enough that it takes ~15 minutes just to pull the car up, and parking can be expensive if using the services.
