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.
