This hotel was very well maintained. It looked like it had been updated and was kept very clean. I did't give it a 5 star because we are Marriott rewards members and we are suppose to get free wifi but we were charged anyway. There isn't much as far a restaurants close to this hotel.

Very clean and well kept up. Rooms were clean and orderly. Nice short walk to US Bank Stadium. Parking convenient for the venue, at a price. Front desk help was friendly and helpful, full bar in the lobby. Bathroom was spotless. Close proximity to the U of M. Easy on off access to I 94 & 35w

we have stayed at this location many times over the past five years, great service during Covid Thanksgiving. Staff Cathy, David and Dane exceeded our expectations for accommodating us for a Virtual Graduation. The Strategy room was the perfect size with a huge screen and the catered food and beverages were delicious. Hotel front desk staff were professional and welcoming. all of our family and guests enjoyed the graduation.

A very safe environment--everyone masked, elevator use restricted to one party, clean. We stayed overnight while visiting some colleges in the area. Close to the U and to Augsburg. Rooms were spacious and clean. Nice view, no matter which direction you face. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Parking ramp convenient and easy to use.

We stayed overnight for a concert at the Varsity Theater. We had arrived early to beat the blizzard and were able to check in right away. Great, clean room. Front desk was very helpful explaining the ramp situation (if you want to use your vehicle during the stay, they make it quite easy to do!) Great price! We have just never gone wrong with staying at a Marriott!

I had a nice stay at this updated hotel. Good location, Room was clean with good space and storage. Staff very pleasant. Bathrooms were a bit too cramped, but manageable. Its a generic chain hotel, so nothing particularly memorable- but served its purpose for a quick business trip and was priced fairly.

We stayed here for a quick one night business trip. The property was very nice and the service was quite good. The location is very good and we were able to walk to several restaurants nearby based on hotel recommendations.

In for homecoming weekend. Noise was an issue. Friday night was kept up by incessant laughing in room next door. When leaving for activities next day found crushed chips in front of my door. They were never cleaned up by time I checked out Sunday morning. Also pillows were way too soft, foam pillows were listed on site, asked for them but they were just as soft. Wouldn’t stay again

This hotel could use an update but the location is good. There were some very loud people running up and down the hallway both nights and it felt like we were staying in a dorm. Overall, an average Marriott.
