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.

Have stayed here before and we are always excited to return!. The hotel offers a return to the past with comfort and style! Located on an island in the Mississippi River close to downtown Minneapolis! What more could you want. With a great restaurant and bar it's the perfect place to relax and have a really good time with friends... More

We really enjoyed the 5 course Sunday Brunch on Father's Day 2016! The food was excellent! The flank steak was so tender and juicy. Although it was a 4 oz portion there was still plenty of steak. I gave slice to my husband since there was plenty for me. With 5 courses each course doesn't need to be very large!... More

Spent another lovely two nights at my favorite hotel. The hotel is clean, we'll run, the staff is courteous, the food amazing. We take walks around this small island and see beautiful old homes being renovated, and there are walking paths through the park. Enchanted place, took a carriage ride, it just dosen't get any better. Parking here is also... More

Wife & I stayed here for a family wedding an a reception was held here as well. The rooms are very nice and both of us slept well. The reception was very well handled and the two meals we had there were delightful. We recommend their French toast. The bar was very inviting, but we found the wine to be... More

Location is scenic along the river and is accessible to several interesting areas including downtown. The UM campus is only a short drive/bike ride or long walk. The historic building is well maintained. Parking is free and around the building. Restaurant setting very nice and our breakfast very good (included $10 voucher bought most of one breakfast). Air conditioning worked... More

We stayed here from a Groupon deal, and it was a nice and romantic time. The place is historical and legendary, and of course it's in an amazing setting, with a nice bar and full-service restaurant. Located on the river walk, you're within walking distance to other great restaurants, a nice park and falls area, and one of our favorite... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Nicollet Island Inn for the last 20+ years! It is by far our most favorite place to stay downtown. It is very cozy, quiet and elegant. The Sunday brunch is wonderful with a view of the Mississippi river. Easy access to shopping and walking. Try it you'll love it!

I have been staying at the Nicollet Island Inn for years now and love the place. I travel there at least 10 times in a year. It has that bed and breakfast feel but has been updated and modernized. The staff is wonderful, efficient and appears to really like working there. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The Nicollet Island Inn is a romantic and elegant hotel with an old world feel but top notch amenities with great attention to detail and good value for the price. We chose to stay there on a three day weekend to visit our daughter in the city and were continually delighted by the beauty and décor of the hotel, its... More
