The Hyatt just renovated their downtown Minneapolis location and it's stunning. There's an awesome little market/coffeeshop off the lobby that serves good coffee and breakfast stuff and has some convenience store kinda stuff. The lobby itself is pretty amazing, with a huge open area for people to sit and large fireplace. (Emphasis on large.)
But really, that's not even what made our stay great- it was the service. Over the holidays hotels like this are packed -- oh, and there was the Vikings/Packers game that day on top of it) -- and the front desk / bartenders / bell hops were put to the task of dealing with stressed out and drunk customers. They did an EXCELLENT job. Kept their cool, addressed problems right away, and were very responsive. (I'm know noticing all the reviews saying the same thing - ha).
The room was beautiful and clean, we had a wonderful time. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we're in Minneapolis.More
