I am a Platinum status Marriott guest and spend at least a third of my year in hotels. I have a solid criteria for judging hotels and think/hope that I'm fair. Your experience may be different, but for me this hotel was a disappointment. Reason one: I wound up with a room the size of a postage stamp and would have expected something a little better having given Marriott so much loyalty. Reason teo: The bed was not a Marriott bed, but rather a shaky rough experience with subpar quality linens. Reason three: The shower design was very poor without a handle on the inside making closing the door and preventing a flood difficult. The shower head was poorly designed with minimal water flow. More reasons: The hotel is a very old refurbished building so the windows are tiny old Midwest style that look out onto pretty much nothing. There is no intimacy, no charm. The place looks and feels like a rehab'd bank - which is what it is. My room had 4 hangers one of which was occupied by a robe. I love in New York so I'm not afraid of high parking prices, but $30 in Minneapolis? Really? I thought I'd try this hotel of some charm and style and mostly to be away from the hordes of screaming partners and the rif-raf that descends on downtown Minneapolis late at night closer to Hennepin Avenue core, but the one pro did not outweigh all the cons. I certainly won't be recommending Hotel Minneapolis to anyone nor staying there again.
