“Very comfortable, quiet, and clean. Great service. Nice downtown location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2010

I spent a week at this holiday inn and wil come back again very soon. The included breakfast bar is very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable.. It's a basic hotel (2.5 stars) so there's not much to do on premisses other than sleep.. (no restaurant save for the breakfast buffet, no bar). But the downtown location means you can easily walk a block or two to a local pub if desired. I also ordered pizza from Pizza Luce and they delivered it directly to my room, you can even order from the web. Short story is I definitely recommend this hotel.

After reading the reviews, we expected clean and quiet. What we did NOT expect was lovely. Very reasonably priced. Our next stay in downtown Mpls will be here.

This hotel is old but very modern, rooms and beds were great. Upgraded in 2009 they did a great job. Parking was resonable and secured lot.
After reading a review about bugs we looked very hard and did not see anysign of anything, very clean.

Only complaint - the hot tub in the Pool area was not hot, it was luke warm. It was not very comfortable,

I was looking to check in at the Hilton (across the road) or the Hyatt. However, there were no reservations available there and had to check into this hotel. I wasn't hoping for much because it is an "Express" version of Holiday Inn. But it pleasantly surprised me. First of all, there was a Jacuzzi right in my room. The room was big. The staff were friendly and responsive. The breakfast was complimentary - standard fare - but still good food and a decent spread. Location was in downtown Minneapolis and pretty near a Skyway entrance - also 2 blocks away from Nicollette Mall with all sorts of restaurants there. You can order Pizza in the room and other things, as the hotel does not have a restaurant.
Clean and well maintained too. Oh! How could I forget? There was a fireplace too, which made it very cozy when there was a thunderstorm outside! So, all in all it was a great stay.

This was one of the most positive hotel stays we have ever had. The staff, especially Mike and Stosh but others as well, were helpful and accommodating making us welcome no matter what we needed. It is a small place, especially compared to the grand hotels in the neighborhood, but this may have resulted in better interaction with the front desk staff. We chose this hotel in order to spend time exploring the downtown area. We felt as if we were on the edge of the center but we were only 3 blocks from Nicollette Mall and we were right across the street from the Convention Center. We were within walking distance of major downtown sites - the Walker Art Museum, the theater district, Nicollette Mall, the Old Mill Park on the Mississippi. Plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood. For those who prefer to get to local sites on wheels, there were several handily placed Bike Share stations in the neighborhood and lots of buses.

We stayed in a "suite" with a pullout couch, plus mini-fridge and microwave. The room was very comfy and clean. Pretty quiet too. Didn't hear much hall noise, but could hear some street noise. It didn't stop us from sleeping, though.
The staff was very helpful, with restaurant recommendations, directions, etc.
The breakfast selection was good.
There's a small pool area with hot tub, which was nice.
The location is kinda on the edge of downtown, but only 3 blocks from Nicollet Mall, and 6 blocks from a light rail station.
