The hotel is certainly not modern but it has all the amenities you may need. It's small and quiet, with very attentive staff. I enjoyed the fact that its removed from the rest of the city so its surroundings are very peaceful. I would definitely stay there in the future.

My fiancée and I selected Minneapolis as a destination for an end-of-the-year frequent flyer mile gathering trip and we chose the Nicollet Island Inn as our place to stay. Who would want to be in the Twin Cities by choice in late December? We would and highly recommend it! The NII is a warm, cozy, historic place with a wonderful...

We have been staying at the Inn for over 15 years. It's the only place we stay in the Cities. Cozy and inviting rooms. The restaurant is top notch! Stay in one corner rooms with a nice view of Mpls. Very nice place overall to stay.

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed here in September shortly after I lost both of my parents. The staff was beyond wonderful and understanding, especially Danielle. Our room was beautiful, and the Island itself is an oasis with trails and outstanding views of the river and downtown. The hotel has an amazing restaurant and bar but there are many other...

First, you won't believe you're in Minneapolis. The setting is picturesque, and the building itself has a lovely French Country feel to it. Having pulled up and waited in line for many downtown hotels only to feel zipped and rushed in and out of your car, this is total relaxation from 100 yards before you hit the front door. Charming...

This is a historic inn that offers comfortable, well appointed rooms. We enjoyed a late lunch in the bar and food was fantastic. They offered a map that we could follow a walking trail to Halls Island where we attended a concert. The real stand out however, were the staff. Everyone we encountered from the front desk to the bar...

I arranged for a 21 person private business dinner at the hotel. Ryan was a pleasure to work with in organizing the dinner and the server was terrific! The food was excellent and everyone had a great time! The historic building is very charming and provided a great atmosphere for our evening.

This is a very small and charming Inn. With only 23 rooms and a great restaurant it almost feels like a large Bed & Breakfast, with the obvious difference that you’ll have to purchase the breakfast separately. The Good • Location. Situated on the Mississippi River you are in a relatively quiet park area of Minneapolis with beautiful walking paths...
