I stay at a lot of HIXs and most are your usual low slung, basic-fixture, reliable, white-bread sort of motels, with the usual free bacon-and-eggs breakfast, wifi, guest laundry, pool, three machine exercise room and one-computer "business center". This one, in downtown downtown Minneapolis is a step up. There are 10ish stories, making for something resembling a view and above-the-street-noise... More

The hotel was very easy to access. Though it is stated that parking is given on a first come first serve basis, if you get there early enough the parking lot is convenient and secure. The location was nice, it was equal walking distance to Target Field, and the Vikings new stadium, which I understand is where the Hubert Humphrey... More

This has been or "go-to" hotel in Downtown Minneapolis for many years having stayed there probably 15 or so times. It's clean & comfortable with a friendly helpful staff, and it's in a great location. While we had another overall positive experience on our last visit in June, we no longer feel that we're getting good value for our money,... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room and bathroom were clean and well maintained, the shower was always an excellent pressure and temperature, and the hot breakfast included with the stay was more than one would expect! Highly recommended!

Stayed with my family at this hotel on our way to the Dells. It was good however, I think the cleaning staff takes short cuts when it comes to cleaning the bathroom. Staff is friendly and pleasant to deal with. Breakfast bar is decent.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my 3 kids. The hotel is clean and staff is friendly. It is conveniently located in the downtown area within walking distance of museums, target field and great restaurants. The breakfast was good and staff looking after the breakfast area was friendly and helpful.

Stayed here before attending a play at the Orpheum. Very convenient location. We walked. Kinda expensive on a week night. Breakfast was fine. Love the breakfast delivery-if you're in a hurry and leaving early. Front desk staff helpful. That is all!
