HoDo is an absolute gem. You feel it from the minute you walk in. Staff are friendly and genuine. Our suite was spacious and inviting. Each suite features the art of a regional artist. Nice touch. Roof top hot tub and deck area is nice even with a chill in the air. Its beyond clear that customer care and comfort... More

Stayed here for 1 night, on Thanksgiving evening. The hotel looks good, is on the corner of the block right in downtown. It is funky and modern but still has a nice traditional look and feel. Think contemporary art on a bare brick wall. I was in room 13 which was a good size, with a sofa, TV, big bed... More

My husband and I stay at this hotel once a year. The hotel has a small number of rooms that are all unique. Check out local art in the rooms as well as CD's of local music they keep in each room. They offer a reception that includes cheeses, wine and beer that we never miss. If you are traveling... More

What a wonderful experience in downtown Fargo. Right in the middle of the night life as well. All 17 rooms are eclectic and should be experienced. Each room, hallway, and corner has local artist work displayed. A trip down to the basement (where the weight room is) you can see the history of the building along with the snapshots of... More

This is a great hotel top to bottom. Enthusiastic young staff and flawless renovation of a historic building in the heart of an up and coming downtown on the upswing. The best I can describe it is "W Hotels" fuses with a "boutique hotel", the decor is a perfect mix of modern, rustic and historic. We stayed in room #17... More

Our last two nights of our big driving vacation across the upper Midwest had us staying here. This is a cool hotel in a renovated downtown building. Only 17 rooms. A lounge and restaurant are on the first floor. Registration and half of the rooms are on the second floor. The rest on the third. We were in Room 2... More

We chose #2, which is a corner room on the 2nd floor. I grew up in a downtown location, so to see the lights/people/cars outside was fine, Rainfall showers are fantastic and I totally bonded with the make-up mirror! You can get room descriptions on the website and my bucket list is to stay in every room there. If you... More

I had never been to Fargo and wanted to stay somewhere nice. Looked at the reviews for The Hotel Donaldson and decided to book it. So glad I did!

This place is fabulous. Pricey, but definitely an experience. Each unit is huge, with multiple rooms. In each hangs the work of a Plains artist, making each room a unique experience. The hotel is in the middle of everything (a relative term in this small metropolis) in the downtown area. Much of the business community is located along the interstate,... More
