I was staying in Minneapolis on business for one week and got a room after a recommendation from a colleague. The corporate rate ended up at around $150 per night - room only.
The hotel has a fabulous interior lobby and bar, thanks to the buildings previous use as a very well appointed bank (so that's where all the money goes!). All staff were very friendly and helpful, which is always good after two long flights.
Room was very nice, lovely bed, flat screen TV and shower - no complaints there.
The one complaint I did have was some of the incidental prices: $17 for a muffin, oatmeal and coffee (from the breakfast menu), around $30 per night for parking and some truly staggering prices for the mini-bar items.
To summarise: great staff, lovely decor, great location, but quite pricey for what you get.
