I stayed for a week. The best part is the Gym opposite to the hotel. Free access pass provided for it. Star bucks at the entrance if u like one. Rooms are clean and neat. Laundry service provided the same day. I recommend to everyone. Nice Asian restaurants near by. In case u have forgotten something, Walgreens are located opposite... More

Attended a conference and this hotel was a great location. Easy to find. Parking was right next to hotel. Parking cost was 15.00 for the night. The room was nice. Staff was friendly. The carpet in our room was a little worn. The 5th floor hall carpet was in really bad shape. I hope they replace it because it does... More

Beautifully redone! The lobby, restaurant and room was remodeled and looked awesome. The restaurant had awesome beer, cocktails and appetizers! Love the location - right next to, if not in, University campus, which made it easy for my son to get to his freshman college orientation. The reason I gave a three out of five is because of the humidity... More

Beautifully decorated with what appears to be an awful lot of Restoration Hardware furniture. We had a spacious "Superior King" and we paid more than $300/night for the privilege. Problems started the moment we pulled up. There was no valet available (Valet parking is $25/day) at the desk. They have no bell service staff so we were left to hunt... More

If you're visiting the u of Minn it's perfect. Right on the edge of campus, an easy walk to several restaurants, the park, and the student union. Friendly staff, relaxed, great interior and decor, spacious but comfortable public space, and excellent rooms. I'd definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful hotel experience staying at The Commons Hotel. The location is perfect, right on the Univ. campus, is 2 blocks from the TCF Stadium and the Light Rail train system stops right outside the hotel. The lobby is beautiful and inviting. The staff is very personable and attentive and ready to assist you with directions or answer... More

I was visiting Minneapolis for a day and decided to stay at The Commons based on TA reviews. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return. My room was on the third floor and overlooked the stadium. It was tastefully decorated in a minimalist style, which was on point. Staff members were excellent at providing directions and accommodating... More

I've stayed at the Commons several times and wrote a review last year. It has consistently great, friendly service, clean and well appointed rooms and perfect location. The rooms are very nice and updated - clean, plenty of pillows, plush towels, great shower pressure, free wifi - the important things! The front desk staff is very friendly, personable and quick...

This is our new home away from home when visiting the university. We had phenomenal service from all at the hotel. The location is excellent if you have business at or have a student at the University. Josh at the front desk was outstanding and helped us book a couple of return visits. The room was clean and beds comfortable.... More

This hotel and its' staff was great. The rooms were large, updated, clean and quiet. The dining room served good, freshly prepared food and wait staff was friendly. I love that it was by the University and public transportation. I would highly recommend staying there.
