“My third stay in a year; that says quite alot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

This was my third stay at this hotel over a year. I came back each time because my previous stay was very good. The rooms are clean and spacious. The lobby area is nice and maintained well. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The restaurant is quite good, too. It is also a relatively short walk to the Nicollete Mall pedestrian area with restaurants, pubs, etc.

Room Tip: As in any city, I would suggest a room on a higher floor away from the street traffic.

The hotel is located near downtown district and is the closest to the convention center.

A bit noisy in the afternoon hours because of the traffic, but no problem during the night or morning,

Very friendly staff taking good care of you (be it in F&B or at the front desk).

Comfortable and clear room, good working desk and the kitchenette is very useful. An in-room safe is definitively missing.

If I'd have to come back to mMSP, I'd most likely book again.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are good.

Surprisingly good restaurant, high quality breakfast, lounge/bar is nice after a long day on the convention floor. Walk to convention center is very convenient. Only a few blocks to Marquette and Nicolette Ave restaurants. Free pickup/drop off service to Blue Line light rail to Airport.

You have hit on some of our favorite things Jon L! Our Chefs really take pride in what they do and are trying something new all the time. Our location is fantastic for conventions and just a short walk to Nicolette. It is definitely nice to have the complimentary shuttle for the couple extra blocks to the Blue Line though!
Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon.

Spent a weekend as a leisure visitor to Minneapolis. Found the door men very helpful in assisting me as a complete newcomer to find alternative parking to the one offered by the hotel. Granted their income depends partly on gratuity from parking guests cars they non the less were very helpful to find alternative low cost options.

The hotel is conveniently located with easy access on of interstate and an easy walking distance to most of what the cities downtown district as to offer.

This was a good stay for us. The rooms were nice, the lobby modern, the staff helpful. The pool was a little small, but the fitness center was nice. The restaurant offered a new breakfast buffet. They only have valet parking on site and it was a little bit of a hassle and a little pricy, but the employees were helpful and as efficient as they could be.

The hotel appeared to be in brand-new shape. The staff was very helpful. They even recycled a large, heavy box of paper left over from the conference. The evening fresh-baked chocolate cookies were an especially nice touch. The free, cooked-to-order omelet breakfast was another nice touch. The location was excellent, a block from the convention center.

Thanks for your Trip Advisor review Kent K!
We are thrilled you were able to take advantage of the breakfast package we offer and that you were able to enjoy one, or maybe a couple, of our cookies. Your recognition of our staff has been passed on and we thank you for that. Everyone here tries very hard to make every guests experience a great one and for you we definitely succeeded.

We hope to see you again.
