The hotel here was awesome! Close to everywhere. The airport was also close by which only made the experience better! The staff provided us with directions to many places and checked on us later! Awesome!

Our Vizsla Club of America National Events was held at this hotel this year and it was above and beyond excellent. The accommodations were beautifully spacious as well as comfortable. The rooms were quiet as well as climate controlled for a restful stay. The hotel restaurants, in which we had all our meals from banquets to breakfast to lunches and several dinners, were fabulous. I had many of their menu choices and all were superb. All of the staff was friendly and accommodating. I only saw one waiter who was below par and thankfully he was not ours. I would certainly recommend this hotel for any business traveler. It was a bit out of the way, being located in an industrial area, for holiday travelers.

You know how you have high hopes and cross your fingers and do your homework and then. . .sigh. It's better than nothing, but not good OR great? Well, at this Marriott, It IS! Dear Sister was booked for 6 nights and she NEEDED a great stay. Drove the manager, Jasen (what a professional, caring and all-around great guy he is) and his lovely assistant, Liz, near to crazy with daily questions and requests. They were not only gracious but accommodating in every detail. Some of us have physical challenges (moved from floor 11 to 3, nearer elevator for less walking), upon request wonderful basket of fresh muffins and organic, herbal tea delivered by room service. Let me mention a request for a lunchbox for Sissy (long, long drive home and I KNOW her, she will not stop! Hey, I tried to raise her right, she is the Baby.) was met with a wonderfully tender roast beef sandwich, fresh chocolate chip cookies, etc. Enough for two meals, in point of fact. Mini-suite room was large, comfortable and very quiet. Yes, the Vizsla dog show was there but did not hear any barking. Breakfast at Staci's Grill ala carte was perfect Eggs Benedict. In decades of loving this dish, no better has been found. Confession: ordered 3 out of 4 mornings. Told You. Perfect. Breakfast buffet could use improvement as could food service at the Bar. What do you want? I want nice ammenities (no dogs on conceriege floor, take note, please), clean and comfy bed and room and management that cares. Mischief Managed. Sissy Happy, Happy, Happy. Me, too. Will be visiting within six weeks. My go to for MPLS.

Stayed here May 2-3 for a business trip. I learned from a colleague that this is also the week they play host to an annual dog show. Sure enough the Viszlu's were here :) If you like dogs, you will love seeing them in the lobby, elevator, etc. If you are allergic then best try another hotel.

Rooms were spacious but the coffeemaker was dated and looked like it was from a thrift shop and the sugar/creamers were lacking. There is a Starbucks near the lobby so that was my fix. The restaurant has a great breakfast buffet and they can make omelets or eggs to order. Very quick and tasty.

Bar was great and the drinks were well crafted and served promptly.

If you are business traveler, this is a great hotel with quick and efficient check-in, bar and restaurant.

If you venture out and are looking for a restaurant, try Jimmy's. Great seafood and steak joint. Known for their walleye and halibut.

This is our second year staying here. My husband had a weekend convention at the hotel and I went shopping. This hotel is 10-15 min from Southdale and Eden Prairie shopping centers. It is also 10-15 min from France Ave shopping and the Shops at West End.
There is no free breakfast but they have an amazing $15.00 breakfast buffet.
The rooms are basic but clean. The beds are comfortable with a light down comforter.
The staff is very friendly and professional.

We were visiting the gift market which is right next door so the location was great. Check in was fast and the front desk personnel were really friendly and fun.

Our room was very quiet and the bed and pillows were wonderful.

The lobby is roomly and stylish and we saw many people eating at the restaurant off the lobby. We did not eat at the restaurant but the food looked good.

We would stay at this hotel again.

Here for 4 nights on a business trip. Originally given a standard room, which was pretty small. Since we were going to be there for 4 nights, we called the front desk and asked if there was a suite available. There was so we upgraded and paid only nominally more per night. It was well worth it. My biggest complaint is there is no microwave in the room. There was a fridge and a coffee pot, but that was it. Most of your higher end hotels offer a microwave.
My biggest beef with Marriott is the fact that NOTHING is included. We normally stay at Hilton's, and there is always at least a bottle of water in the room. If we wanted coffee in the morning--due to the fact that we hate hotel room coffee--we had to buy it. Again, most HIlton's at least offer free coffee in the lobby in the morning. Pretty minor stuff. Nice happy hour in the restaurant. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.
