“Clean, quiet, but lacks personality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

After a month of heavy business travel, staying in many different chains as well as boutique hotels, The Marquette clearly makes the grade on my personal list in terms of a comfortable bed, cleanliness, quiet room, and central location. However, it tries too hard to be sleek and sophisticated and it felt a bit cold, and impersonal to me. The bathroom has an attractive stone tile floor and glass shower, but I found the ergonomics all a bit challenging, such as getting the shower door to close without leaking and getting the towels to stay on the hook without dropping on the tiles. Rooms in Minneapolis tend to be more expensive than most cities. A room here is not a bargain, and don't look for any freebies. Need a bottle of water? It's $4 or $6, depending on size. Forget your little tube of toothpaste? Buy it from the basket on your vanity for $3. Wireless? Pay up. I much prefer her sister hotel: the Hilton Minneapolis.

The location is great as it is close to some great local places, (Barrio, News Room, The Local). It is also close Loring Park which is nice to run through (as well as the surrounding neighborhood). The view is also great. The rooms were very clean.

The location is perfect, right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and attached to the Skyway. The staff is attentive and helpful, and all of the amenities are top notch. The room decor is classic without being too overdone. The rooms are good size and comfortable

Wonderful hotel. Even better staff.

Hotel is in the heartbeat of downtown Minny, connected to the Skyway and part of a great little indoor shopping complex with nice restaurants and top retailers.

Unfortunately didn't enjoy the food here at all with the exception of the pizza ordered for room service one evening. I tried a variety of items over the span of 3 nights including an open-faced crabcake sandwich - crabcake itself wasnt bad, but came on the colder side and the slice of toast was stale. Other items included slightly over-cooked tuna and very slimy lobster tempura appetizers.

Do not let this sway you. Hal, the bartender we had was incredible - visit the bar if you want him to make you a martini the right way. And despite my take on the food, calling down to Gene for room service was a pleasant and friendly experience - even the young man who delivered the food was patient and courteous.

A bit disappointing was that wifi is not complimentary unless you have top Hilton status, so it was a bummer to shell $13-$18 per day for access.

The room was spacious, TV easy to navigate, bed large n' comfy and although difficult to get the hang of, the shower offered a large rain shower head and a detachable one as well.

I highly recommend this hotel. Cheers and happy travels!

We stayed here for the weekend while visiting University of Minnesota. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are large and modern. The bathroom lighting is excellent and there was a nice large glass shower. There is a large business center and a smallish fitness center with Free Weights, Elipticals and Treadmills but no multifunction or circuit training equipment or Bathroom. The executive lounge is nice but small for a hotel this size, but we could always find a seat. The location on the skyway is nice, makes it easy to go anywhere downtown without going outside. Nice hotel

This is a great hotel with a great location centered in Downtown Minneapolis and skyway accessible. The service was polite and the hotel is quiet. I would recommend staying here and will look for an opportunity to stay in the future.

When my wife and I checked in, we were upgraded to a suite with an amazing view; the room had huge panoramic windows. The room was huge and had comfortable seating. The bathroom was clean and spacious. My overall impression is one of luxury and comfort.

Stayed at the Marquette this last weekend and I have to say that all expectations were far exceeded. From the quick check in to the most amazing room everything was just perfect. The staff was friendly, the room was not only spotless but breath taking as well. By far one of the best places I have ever stayed. I would have expected to pay at least 3 times more than what I did for a place like this.
Hats off and thank you for making the weekend perfect!
