It's been almost 3 years since I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Downtown - Northstar. Since then the construction down the side street has been completed so the traffic flow is very good now. The hotel is as I remembered it. Generous size rooms and right in the middle of downtown. Better than the last Minneapolis hotel I stayed at. It was May so the temperature was quite nice in Minneapolis so no need to use their Skyway although it is quite convenient.
The location is great if you want to go shopping since all the stores are only blocks away. There are also quite a few good restaurants also within walking distance. Tried out a very good seafood restaurant called Oceanaire that I would definitely recommend. It is only a few blocks away. Also tried an excellent steak house, Manny's, which I would also recommend and it is even closer than Oceanaire.
The rooms were up to my cleanliness standards and everything in the room was working properly. The TV's and programming were updated since the last time I stayed which is nice. The Krona bar and grill continues to be a good place to wind the day down. Service there is very friendly as I remembered.
Front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
