My husband stays at this hotel all of the time. He likes the accessibility to light rail and that the hotel has a shuttle to get him to his appointments.
And, I mostly liked it with the exception of the bathroom setup. Everything is just too close for comfort for me. I mean, the toilet stall door doesn't even close. I'm sorry, but I want privacy in that part of my life.
The room could also use a second desk-like chair. I looked at the pictures of other Alofts and some have them. I'm not sure why this location doesn't.
The WiFi is completely open, which is also a problem.
I figured out the lighting without much problem. But, the shower/toilet area is lit by only one bare bulb. Don't plan on seeing when using them. Also, even one bedside light is really too bright for the other person to sleep.
Note to housekeeping: Don't take away towels. Most couples need more than two a day.
All in all, though, I'd stay here if I was alone. I like this part of Minneapolis. I like the beds and bedding. I like the bar area. The people who worked their were service oriented and friendly.
