We spent a busy weekend in Crown Plaza Northstar in Minneapolis. Many restaurants and the convention center were in walking distance. The hotel bar was on the ground floor. As Spire Elite we had access on our floor to a lounge with water, drinks, and also wine for purchase. The city and hotel were crowded so we were glad to... More

I only added the second star because the staff was professional and friendly during our first hour at the hotel, and the room was decent. After that, I have never dealt with such unproffesionalism in a hotel before. The fire alarm went off - obviously it wouldn't have been a big deal if that was all, as things like that... More

I have been to Minneapolis in different occasions. This hotel was a gem, It was right in the middle where we can get to anywhere we want wether it would be shopping, dinner or lunch. It was close enough to ball park and all the night activities. Staff was very nice and helpful. Always on point and making sure we... More

It was "pot luck" in choosing lodging for a weekend wedding stay DOWNTOWN. We chose the Crown Plaza as result of great experiences with the Holiday Inn brand (IHG). In the middle of downtown Minneapolis, the hotel was very accessible (this was a weekend) and parking was but $15....pretty reasonable for the big City. The venue was the MEC (Minneapolis... More

Had a conference in downtown Minneapolis, and the Crowne Plaza proved to be a very good pick - clean, conveniently located, and the staff was friendly. Bonus points for an open-late restaurant/bar. I would recommend the Crowne Plaza to others.

Very nice hotel with great staff and a good parking ramp. Easy to hop on the metro and go wherever you want from there. The rooms are modern and clean and the conference facilities are very nice. Great outdoor patio on one of the upper floors. Great restaurants nearby.

The Crowne Plaza was a great place to stay. Being right downtown, it was easy to walk to several different venues and restaurants. The service was great and the rooms were nice and clean. They provide a trial set of various essential oils that helps promote sleep. I really enjoyed our stay there!

I struggled deciding whether to give this hotel 3 or 4 stars. I gave it a 4 because of their customer service. Since I booked a Crowne Plaza I really expected more. Meaning I expected a refrigerator and microwave in the room. There was neither. They offered to get me a refrigerator for $25 more which I found unbelievable (I... More
