I stayed at W Hotel in Boston last year and found it quite comfortable, so I decided to try its less expensive cousin Aloft in Minneapolis. While the hotel rooms are quite comfortable and almost identical to the W Hotel in Boston, Aloft has fewer amenities. My main complaint is that while there is a bar serving a few bar treats, there is no restaurant for anyone who wants a real sit-down breakfast. You can get muffins, bagels, yogurt, fruit and wrapped egg meals in the lobby, but my latte (from a machine) was undrinkable. Nevertheless, there is a free hotel shuttle that will take you anywhere within a five mile radius of the hotel. This includes the University of Minnesota and most of the good downtown restaurants. Forewarned about the slim breakfast choices, I would still stay there again if I wanted an inexpensive but comfortable hotel room.
