“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I spend about 8-10 nights a year in Minneapolis hotels. Minneapolis is a great hotel town and the Marriott Minneapolis City Center Hotel is up there with the best of them.

I was dropped off by taxi to what appeared to be an unusual entrance for a Marriott --- just a foyer with a flashy set of elevators. It is not so easy to see that the hotel registration is on the 5th Floor but once getting there there is a large open room that houses the registration and dining areas. The rooms were a touch above the standard Marriott grade --- and the bedding was luxurious (I have found the high-quality linens are not always used. The room and bathroom were larger than average. The water pressure in the shower was strong with a fancy large head. The Concierge Lounge was perfectly run and a perfect spot for a morning meeting with colleagues. The selection of food seemed more extensive; in addition to the usual breads, danish, eggs and meat there was smoked salmon with all the fixings and a special healthy egg-white veggie dish. The staff let us continue our meeting for several hours after the breakfast finished, which was much appreciated. Overall excellent experience at this hotel.

Hotel was very confortable. Just what you expect from a Marriott in the city. Nothing flashy, but overall very comfortable. Staff was friendly, room was clean. Breakfast was pretty good, with a fairly decent buffet selection. Parking is kind of a hassle, but that is not uncommon for a downtown hotel

We made a reservation here for a double room a few months ago. About 4 days before our reservation I received an email saying that they didn't have a double available anymore. We called specifically to get 2 beds, which we reserved over the phone. To the Marriott's credit they did say it wasn't guaranteed but THIS disclaimer was only presented on the confirmation email we received after booking the room. They were gracious enough to offer us a queen bed with a roll away bed for an extra $15 a night. Now with the premium price that we payed for the room you would think they would at least comp the roll away bed. I'm sure the room was very nice but we instead canceled our visit and booked a room at another hotel in the area for 1/2 the price. Overall very unhappy with their customer service. If you know that you don't have the room let the customer know more than 4 days ahead of time, and mention the disclaimer over the phone.

I have stayed several times over the years and I am always impressed with the staff. The rooms are clean, quiet standard Marriott fare. I have come back to the hotel at 2PM and at 2AM, every time there is a staff member to greet me at the door and wish me a good day or good night.

Room Tip: see if you can get "up graded" to a corner room. Great view.

We stayed at this hotel overnight and found it to be very pleasant. It's close to everything downtown. They don't have free wifi in your room. You could pay for it. However, you can get free wifi in the lobby and bar area.

The room was very clean; the linen was fresh.

We would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a great place to stay whether you are doing activities downtown or headed to the Mall of America. It is only 3 blocks to the nearest light rail station. $1.75 gets you to the Mall of America. It has access to most downtown places by skyway if the weather requires. But walking the downtown streets in Minneapolis in nice weather is the way to go. Room rates are average and the rooms are nice. The valet and conceriege were very helpful. We had a great stay for a girls weekend with adjoining rooms.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times when commuting to minneapolis. I'd always stayed during the week. My husband and I decided to stay over for a weekend night and wow, what a different hotel. I should have known to be more wary when asked to sign a no party waiver at check in. Room was great. High floor, corner unit, great view. Came back to room around midnight. At 340 am, the party started in the room next to ours. The walls are so thin that we could literally hear every word to the music and every swear word the occupants used..We called security - who did come up immediately, but while looking out the peephole, I noticed two people passed out in the hallway. Literally, passed out in the hallway. It seems to be a great biz hotel - always meets needs, but I'll never stay on a weekend again.
