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...

This is a beautiful little inn that sits in a picturesque setting in Minneapolis. It's very close to downtown but doesn't feel like it. The exterior is charming and reminded me of the south of France. The staff was excellent--for instance, when I arrived on a hot afternoon, the concierge offered to get me a cold glass of water.

We enjoy coming to Minneapolis to spend a day strolling the St. Anthony Falls district with our dogs. Nicollet Island Inn is situated beautifully along the parkway and the many river bridges. The hotel staff are welcoming to our pets and the surcharge is very appropriate given the quality of the rooms and furnishings.

My husband and I stayed here while in town for overnight. While the hotel is pricey, it is so historic and beautiful. They have ample plugs and the WiFi was reliable. The staff was very friendly. The inn is within walking distance of downtown Minneapolis.
