“Friendly Staff and a GREAT location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2010

I came to the Days Hotel to drop my daughter off at college. We are from out of town and we were using this time as a mini-vacation to Minneapolis. The location was great because my daughter could utilize the shuttle to get to and from campus and the rest of the family used it as well. The staff was very helpful with letting us know where we could go and how to get there, whether it was by shuttle or the light rail. It was very convenient! I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area, for any reason. The price is right, the location is perfect, the staff is friendly and the rooms were updated and comfortable! You definitely get your moneys worth at this hotel, while sparing yourself the downtown prices!

I spent 5 night at the Days Hotel while attending a convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Downtown. The hotel is located on the edge of the U of M campus, and 3 miles from the Convention Center. I took less than 15 minutes in rush hour to drive to the convention center or other attractions downtown.
I booked a 1bed Queen NS for $69.00 a night. What a bargain!! The room was small, but had a queen bed,desk, chair. fridge and microwave, and an older 25 inch TV. The room was perfect size for one person. Parking was free and right next to the building. The hotel is located across a parking lot from the football statium at U of M, and also down the street from a little "Campustown".
The breakfast was basic (cereal, breads and coffee). There are several options for breakfast down the street.( Egg and I, Cupcake, Al's) There are plenty of food options within a mile of the hotel..
The staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions that i had. If you are looking for a good hotel near downtown Minneapolis, the Days Hotel is a good choice.

We made reservations at this hotel due to its proximity to the U of MN to attend a football game. It was conveniently located and within easy walking distance to the stadium. However, on their web site, it states "free parking" for guests. The game started before the hotel's "official check-in time", so we had to pay $20.00 to park there. Don't have a problem with that, but when we checked into the hotel later that afternoon, they should have refunded the money due to be paying guests. Talked to the front desk manager and the hotel manager and didn't get anywhere with them. Not very good customer service.
We've been to two additional sporting events and have stayed elsewhere.
Moral of the story sports fans, stay somewhere else!

We stayed here while vising the U of M. Very convenient location, very comfortable. Small breakfast room though for the size of the hotel, consider bringing food- there is a large refrigerator in the room.

I was not impressed, mostly distressed.

The room is tiny. The AC cannot be well controlled. Too cold or too hot, but always humid.

Their internet connection is VERY slow, often unusable. No surprise, they have only low speed modems. The desk clerk tried to reset the server it but it did not help. Said he knew it was a problem.

There are few places to walk to for dinner. Very desolate in August.

The staff was friendly but not able to find my package until I insisted they look further. Oops, they found it after saying it was not there.

Overall it ain't what the reviewers said it was.
