I visit downtown Minneapolis often, so I wanted to give this hotel a try. I paid $87/night for a weekend stay (pre-paid rate) and I'm a platinum elite. I was "upgraded" in advance, to what looked like an exec suite, with larger sitting area - but I tried to check in early (around noon on a Friday) and was told the room was not ready. I did ask how long it might take "to be ready" and I was put off that the desk agent couldn't really help narrow the timing much. But, she took my cell # and agreed to call. At around 2:30pm the room was finally ready. The 2 things that make this property attractive are 1) Access to lightrail stop for government center, and 2) Access to skyway. The rooms were nice, not over the top, but nice. Bathroom was a walk in shower stall, which is ok for me. No free waters here, despite elite status. I was offered breakfast buffet coupons or extra points, due to no concierge lounge on weekends. All in all, it's an option and at a decent pricepoint, I'd consider it for the future. But, the rooms are not as large as the nearby Marriott City Center - where I've often been upgraded to the bi-level suites.
