I had the pleasure of staying here last month while in Minneapolis for work. This is absolutely a 4 star hotel. Everything about it was awesome from the staff to the room and amenities.
I was traveling with a group of 11 including myself. Due to the start times of our conference we all arrived before check-in. The staff took our bags for us and put everything in the concierge room.
When I returned later that afternoon, I was given my room key, and asked if I wanted a newspaper and if so which one (I think the choices were the Star-Tribune, the NY Times or USA Today.) I loved that. How often have you gone to a hotel and not been asked only to throw the paper out.
Once in my room I was in absolute awe! I opened the door to find the bed turned down, soft music playing on the radio, a comfy bathrobe on the bed and soft lighting. Also, the front desk staff had called the room and asked if the room met my expectations.
The bed was huge and one of the plushest I have slept on. Plenty of pillows and the linens were crisp.
My favorite part of the room was the bathroom. IT WAS HUGE! I think the biggest hotel bathroom I've ever seen! The tub has it's own area with a TV so you can soak in the tub and catch the news. In it's own "room" behind a clear class door was the toilet. The shower was a dual head shower that was all gigantic. The soaps and lotions were nicely scented and plentiful.
The hotel was quiet, if it was full I never knew it. I didn't hear any sounds from any of the rooms around me. Another rare thing when staying at a hotel.
I found it's location to be central to many things. And being downtown everything fun was within walking distance. I do know that parking was at a premium and had we driven, we would have had to pay to park. This is no different than any other big city downtown hotel I've stayed in.
I absolutely want to return and next time bring my husband. Stay here! You won't regret it!
