Loved this hotel! You can't beat the location and the staff is excellent. As another member mentioned, "midwestern friendly" is different from other places. They really are kind, not just faking it for their day job. The conceirge can reserve transportation in their towncar or passenger van to local sites and the drivers are chatty and nice. The cars are complimentary within a certain radius (tip the driver) and a nominal fee for outer areas.
I had take away from the cafe downstairs for breakfast because I didn't want to sit in the restaurant alone and my muffins and coffee were brought out quickly with a smile. They did have to double check if they could make a latte but it was done well when I got it. The food at The Grill on the main level was average. I was surprised as a local recommended it to us. It seems to be popular for happy hour as well. We were able to take the remainder of our bottle of wine upstairs with us after dinner, which was nice.
Pazzaluna, across the street from the hotel, is excellent and serves late in the bar. We also liked Fhima, at Wabasha and Sixth, five minutes walking from the hotel.
