“It's a Westin in the middle of an urban city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

It's good overall. Nothing charming about it except it's in an old bank building but that's why we stay at Westins. A bit formal and stiff with it's valet parking and long walkway to the front desk but fine. Wouldn't choose to stay here for entire length of project unless the client was within walking / taxi distance.

Wow what a great experience from the minute I checked into the hotel. The employee at the front desk was so helpful and sincere, not only did he check me in quickly he asked if I needed suggestions for dinner, transportation needs or anything to make my stay more pleasant.
The room as always is clean and spacious.
So most people don't think of the Westin as a hotel to bring a child to... Wrong the staff was over the top friendly with my son from his kiddy cocktail with extra cherries of course to the snail talk with him to make him feel important. The best part about traveling with a child is your not fighting the crowds to use the pool.
Shawn our waiter is so knowledgable and friendly made meals fun and delightful. I would recommend the hanger steak.
If you are traveling to Minneapolis the Westin is the only choice you should think about, you won't be disappointed.
Great job Westin Staff can't wait until our next visit.

I stayed at many hotels in North America but this one is the real gem. Pull up to the hotel and the very friendly valet parking staff show up.

The front office staff is very helpful and no problems switching rooms. Overall the staff get 95% for friendliness.

The restaurant is again top in its class.

One of my best stays!!

We live in the twin cities, but decided to stay downtown for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The Westin met our needs very well. The location is excellent - only about a block and a half from the light rail, very close to Nicollett Mall and Hennepin Ave. Check-in was very smooth, and we were even upgraded when we mentioned it was our anniversary. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable - we both slept great. It was also very quiet. The pool was a bit small, but nice. If there had been other people using it, it might have been a little crowded.

Overall, it was a great stay. We'd definitely stay here again if/when we decide to get away for a short weekend and will recommend it to others who visit the area.

We stayed at the Westin for a weekend in August. The hotel is in a historical bank building and the main lobby and common areas are outstanding.
The rooms are more modern, we had a suite, which was very spacious, a big living area and bathroom. The only downside is no window in the bedroom. Our son slept on the sofa bed in the living room.
There were a few discrepancies, but they totally made up for them and the manager spoke with me very attentively at check out.
I would stay here again upon return to Minneapolis.

I have stayed at the Westin MSP several times - for work, with my husband and with the family. Each time I have had a great experience. I have stayed in a variety of rooms - from the penthouse suite to the run-of-the-mill room. All are clean, have everything that I need and comfortable.

The pool and workout rooms are exceptional. The bar is also impressive.

The staff is always accommodating and the hotel feels upscale yet comfortable. This is our favorite hotel to stay at when we have the kids with us in downtown Minneapolis.

Our very excellent adventure began upon check-in. We arrived a bit early and they found a room to accommodate our needs. From walking into the room to sinking into the amazingly comfortable bed late that night, our stay was a pleasure.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet, even close to the stairway.

Green Features: Love knowing they use environmentally kind practices.
