My wife and I stayed one night and the room was really clean and nicely decorated. The shampoo, soaps were great. We loved the essential oils that were in a little bag on the bed, that was a nice surprise. The room had really tall ceilings and a nice bathroom. Did I mention the great breakfast and coffee. This is where I'm sending all my out of town friends from now on.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Uptown Minneapolis and close to several downtown attractions and the three beautiful lakes of the city. Rooms are beautifully designed with a boho feel (which is pretty unique!!). They have paid attention to every small detail and bathroom is really amazing with Bespoke Body & Wellness bath products. Hotel uses minimal plastic and all decor and amenities are environment friendly. Breakfast tray delivered every morning has the best pastries (amazing perk!!). Restaurant and cafe downstairs have amazing food and beverages and is a busy sight all day long. They have thoughtfully curated menu for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hotel staff, specially Todd Kohn who managed my reservation, is very helpful and accommodating. You may find the place a little on the expensive side but it is totally worth every dollar spent. I will definitely visit again.

We absolutely loved this secret hotel tucked into a wonderful bar/cafe/restaurant in a cool location near the river. The beautiful and spacious Room 5, which comes with its own private deck (with dining table and chairs, string lights and a hammock), easily accommodated three of us. The huge, light-filled and beautifully-decorated room had very high ceilings and gorgeous large windows and was beautifully decorated. It had a king size bed and a couch that was made up into a comfortable second bed. The bathroom was equally huge with a great rain shower and lots of light from frosted privacy windows. Friendly, helpful staff and a terrific restaurant added to the charm. Best of all, a fantastic breakfast of juices, great coffee and either (wonderful) pastries or (really delicious) fresh bread and butter were delivered each morning on a tray left outside our room, which we enjoyed on the deck. Sometimes we added something extra, like yogurt with nuts and berries and almond cream for a few extra dollars. The room a very good value for the three of us, especially considering the generous breakfast that came with it. We miss our fantastic breakfasts and will return soon (to Room 5 of course).

We loved the look of our room at the Alma. It was beautiful with a gorgeous bathroom as well and lovely bath products. We had some problems though in that our room was extremely noisy (we were in room 7 on the main floor) and our air conditioner was broken on a hot evening. Sadly these things didn't make for a restful night Hopefully these things can be addressed as otherwise it's a nice place with a great restaurant and a good continental breakfast included.

We stayed here to be close to downtown without actually staying there. We enjoyed easy walking distance to the restaurants along the river and to US Bank stadium. Having a breakfast tray delivered every morning was a nice perk. The bathrooms are lovely as are the products provided. There is some noise from the cafe below, but it didn’t bother us much. Would definitely stay here again.
