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!

I have stayed at a lot of Holiday Inn hotels, and never been unsatisfied like I was here. When I arrived the front desk staff was grumpy and acted like I was inconveniencing them. Then when I had issues with my key card (every day of my 3 day stay!) they kept telling me it was my fault they weren't... More

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!

Had a four night stay for the American Telemedicine Conference in May.

We stayed here for 5 nights and did not have one complaint. The hotel was centrally located to downtown and the price was right. Our room and surroundings were impeccably clean. The front desk staff, especially Ian and Anna were kind, well informed and professional. We will stay here again when we return to Minneapolis.

The hotel is comfortable, it's very well located, in the night shift they even give us a list of places to have dinner an with a mark of personal suggestions that is great. The guy in the morning night probably need an extra coffee was not kind at all, even though in spite of him I would return.
