We stayed here for a long weekend to attend a wedding. As first time visitors to Minneapolis, we had heard that this hotel was excellent and in a great location- and both proved true. I will preface this by saying that we had an outstandingly good rate (thanks to a wedding group discount!) which made the stay even sweeter.
The hotel is located right in the center of downtown which is lovely to stroll in summer (and it is connected to the indoor walkways, which I guess are necessary in winter). Room was standard business-class hotel, but clearly recently upgraded with a nice desk and chair, a VERY comfortable bed with nice linens, large plasma screen TV- great for watching Olympics! The bathroom was nicely appointed, but there wasn't much counter space and the spacious shower with glass doors was nice-looking but not well-sealed so water got all over the floor when we showered.
The staff, however, was outstanding. The front desk (despite the hotel being nearly full) found us a king room rather than the 2 doubles we had booked. They gave us good local dining suggestions. The bellhops were outstanding- pleasant, helpful, genuine all without being overbearing. We got cabs in < 1 minute in front of the hotel.
Overall, a very good hotel. Solidly upscale, but not truly luxury. A fantastic bargain at under $150 per night.
Oh- the wireless internet is not free, though they do apparently have a free business center.
