This was our second stay at the Hotel Minneapolis, both booked through Hotwire. The location is good - right downtown. There are many parking ramps around the hotel which are more reasonable than the valet parking. The one downfall to the location is it is a little (and I stress a little) farther away from the main hub of downtown. However, it is connected to the Skyway, but we were told the Skyway closed at 5 p.m., so if you actually wanted to go out and do something in the evening, it does not do you much good. It is far enough that we would probably not book this particular hotel on our own, but if we ended up getting it through a site like Hotwire, it is a great deal.
The staff was very friendly. No complaints there. The valets were extremely friendly every time we walked by.
The room was nice. There was not even too much visible wear and tear, except for two drawers that would not shut all the way. We had a room near the elevator and ever heard hallway noise. Large bathroom. No tub, but a very spacious shower.
Our heater was extremely loud when you turned it to anything above 70 degrees. When it would kick on, it sounded almost like a gunshot. It made our hearts stop multiple times, so we set it below. Not a fun thing to wake up to in the middle of the night...
Other than the heater and location, I would not have any major complaints about this hotel. Again, I do not know if I would intentially go to this hotel's website to book a room, but finding a steal from a place like Hotwire and staying here is definitely worth the money.
