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... More

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... More

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.

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
