“Great Location, Great Hotel.”
Reviewed July 11, 2010

Staff was nice, Great location near ballpark, tons of restaurants and everything else you need to do in Minneapolis. As a Priority Club member we also had the advantage of the concierge level which was very nice. Parking $20... I guess expected for downtown hotel. Other reviews said noisy hotel.. we did not find that.. we were in a corner room.. we ask for that knowing it probably would be quieter (just a suggestion).

This was actually the third time my family has used this hotel. Each and every time we have been very, very pleased with all aspects of the hotel. If I had to criticize anything, it's the high internet charge (although I will admit it was far more reliable than many hotel wireless networks) and the fact that the air conditioning seemed inconsistent.

Service is exemplary and friendly, rooms are well-equipped and spotless, and the Hotwire rate we received is an extraordinary value. Our son will be attending the U of M for the next four years and we plan on staying here whenever we visit him.

I chose this hotel over several options based on tripadvisor reviews. What a mistake! The rooms, price, location and, even, service are all adequate. However, I did read once or twice that is seemed like a party hotel. What an understatement! My floor partied loudly until 2 and 3 in the morning. Hotel security always responded but, even as the din quieted, the walls are just too thin to withstand any kind of activity in nearby rooms. On my last night, I checked out around 5 am (since I was still awake!) and caught an early fight home.

If you want to stay up with your buddies all night, check in. Otherwise, go somewhere--anywhere--else. Frankly, there are lots of better options in downtown Minneapolis.

We held three days of meetings at the Crowne Plaza Northstar and could not have been happier. The staff was amazing, and the facility was great. We had a wonderful dinner for 50 on the roof top. I highly recommend the Crowne Plaza Northstar for conferences.

I stayed at Crowne Plaza for a weekend getaway with my wife and friends for a twins game. We paid $80 per night and were upgraded to a room that had a walk-out screen door to the terrace/patio level. We were able to make cocktails and sit on the terrace and enjoy the nice day. The room was a little small but comparable to other minneapolis hotels. Front desk service was friendly and quick. Bellman helped us get a cab. and Location is walking distance to restaurants and bars. For $80 it was a great value. I would prefer this hotel to the hyatt/doubletree/and hilton downtown.

Spent a weekend at the Northstar and loved the stay. The hotel seems to be recently remodeled and the room was elegant and understated. Huge shower and comfortable bed. Great location downtown and low cost parking at the hotel. Will, the check in clerk, was outstanding at his job. He provided a warm welcome and great advice both about restaurants and things to do while in town. Would stay again.

I escaped to the Minneapolis Crowne Plaza from my home just outside the city as a quiet place to escape and get some writing done. While the city itself is far from quiet I have come to learn that the Crowne Plaza is a great place to escape to with the personal touches it offers to ensure a quiet restful stay. I learned on my first stay to the Crowne Plaza from the helpful staff that they offer "quiet floors" where they guarantee that there are no bachelor parties or other load groups. What a treat to find a care package of a sleep mask, ear plugs and lavender linen spray to make my stay more enjoyable. Being right in the heart of the city is always a plus, the only drawback would be the noise at night, but just request to be on a quiet floor and you will be well taken care of!
