“Excellent Rooms”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Loved the comfortable beds and rooms ... my only critique is the coffee pot was hard to locate (in a cabinet out of site ... and did not have microwave / fridge in rooms (but I was too busy to ask if one could be supplied ... so may not be an issue). STAFF WERE ALL EXCELLENT!!!

I stayed earlier this week on a business trip. Check in and out process was fast and easy. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The bar was also nice and cozy for conversation. Location is excellent and within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping boutiques. I enjoyed my stay.

First of all, I would like to recognize Catherine who was working the front desk. She is cheerful, kind and caring! My friend and I rode our bikes there. The staff assisted us by taking them and storing them for us. The lounge is great and has an energetic feel. On the 17th floor, there is a small executive lounge that has a complimentary happy hour and a breakfast. Very nice!
I would definitely stay there again! Great rooms, friendly staff, and overall, most accomodsting!

My wife and I stayed here for a night on a trip to Minneapolis to go to the Mall of America and to see the Mets play the Twins. The hotel is in a great location downtown and easily within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. The bed was extremely comfortable, and we had an incredible view of the city!

The woman at the front desk was also very helpful, and informed us about a parking special for hotel guests that saved us a ton of money! Make sure you ask about parking to get the scoop on any deals they can give you.

My only complaint was the wifi...it wasn't a huge deal since I wasn't there for work, but in my opinion, it's 2013 and if you're paying over $100 for a room, your internet access should be free. I definitely wasn't going to pay the $14.99 for 24 hours of access!

Overall, a great place to stay in a wonderful location. I'd definitely stay again!

Nice, quiet room. Right in downtown. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was a bit small, but not a big deal. Good coffee in the room and TV was more than enough. Overall a good stay.

My wife and I stayed at he Crowne Plaza for a little overnight date, once a month we travel from southern MN to Minneapolis for fun. We picked the Plaza as we have enjoyed it in the past. The Plaza s in the heart of the city, close to several venues. Our check in went well however when we got up to our room, the room next door was having a small but loud party. I returned to the front desk and asked for a room change. Without hesitation the manager, Ken, moved us to an excellent and quiet room. He also stated he would take care of the party room. Ken also helped us with discounting our parking rate and provided an umbrella for the rainy night. The room was very clean and functional. The bed was extremely comfy and I slept like a baby! The front desk and other staff that we ran into throughout our visit we helpful and friendly. We plan on staying at the Crowne Plaza next month!

Room Tip: The city view is nice!
