“Everything A-OK”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

When we were unexpectedly "dumped" by the Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis, the folks at the Garden Inn came to our rescue. For those of you who read my reviews, you may know that I don't mind walking an extra block or two while visiting a new city. (After all, as much as you eat when out of town, you need a little extra exercise!) This property was about three rather short city blocks from "the action," but easily walkable, plus Minneapolis has a great public transportation system. The entire staff was excellent from the manager to the guy mopping the floors.

K L,

I am sorry you were "dumped" but glad you headed our way! It was a pleasure to have you. Thanks for your kind comments about the staff; they truly make the difference. Everyone believes in having fun and sharing that attitude with our guests, even the "guy mopping the floor". I hope we see you back in the future and have a chance to earn a 5 star review next time. Thanks again!

With a few days to spare before a company function my sons and I needed a room for the weekend. I made the call, and luckily rooms were available at this hotel. We arrived via the light train rail, and were picked up quickly at the Government Plaza Station. This was our means of transportation, and much cheaper than a taxi.

Pleasant hotel experience. Staff are all very friendly, and helpful. Nice environment and good food served. My room was very quiet, and was pleased with housekeeping. I recommend staying at Hilton Garden Minneapolis.

I spent 1 sleepless night before seeing in the Lobby that the beds are adjustable! Yikes! A sign in the room would be nice. Clean rooms, with microwave, fridge, and keurig machine. Room was about 60 when we checked in- should be set to a more normal 68 to save energy. Nice place, would go back! Close to lots of good downtown places!

I am so sorry that you did not know that are beds are adjustable. It is a great feature but to no avail if you didn't know about it. I feel awful you didn't get a good night's sleep the first night. I hope it was not enough to deter you from staying with us again. Thanks for still giving us a good review despite your hardships. I hope you continue to come back to us in the future and allow us the opportunity to make this up to you. Thanks.

My son, a high school senior, and I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Minneapolis during a recent visit to the Twin Cities for a tour of the University of Minnesota. It was one of the hotels recommended by the U of M and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision to stay there. Great service, staff, facility, and location.

We had our annual meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn Minneapolis Downtown. The hotel staff was courteous, helpful and professional and always service with a smile. We never heard the word "NO". This is the very reason that we would go back to this hotel again.

Stayed here for two days and two nights for a meeting at the convention center next-door. Perfect location, definitely caters to the business traveler but has that perfect homey feel that makes you feel warm and welcome. Great elevators, clean fitness center, pool looked nice. The breakfast was made to order and served quickly. Not sure I would feel very comfortable bringing my kids here, I didn't see one child there the entire time, as I said definitely business hotel. Six blocks from the light rail station, so it cost me two dollars to get from the airport.

Thank you so much for your great review! I see all the reviews that you have composed over time on TripAdvisor so thank you for constantly and consistently telling others about your experience. It goes a long way in helping others know about the establishment and the culture of that establishment. Thanks for all the feedback. We would like to think that we are a very kid friendly hotel. We have a treasure chest full of goodies behind the desk, a pool and pool toys, and board games for kids to play as well. We certainly try to cater to everyone. Please come back and join us soon; we appreciate your business!
