Good hotel, with very good bed room and great location. But the breakfast was not up to the mark. I always thought American Hotels provided very good Breakfast. But Holiday Inn seems to be very unAmerican in this respect. Occupancy rate seems to be low. There were not much people around. Had a desolate look. Its only a walking distance...

We had a quick over night stay. It was an easy check-in and pleasant staff. I thought we'd have a noisy night when I realized our room was at the top of the stairs, but NO! We had a great, quiet night sleep. Adequate and enjoyable breakfast before walking across the street to the Convention Center. Perfect.

I am a cost conscience traveler and while others in my group were staying at the Hilton, I was staying closer to the convention center and almost half the cost. The rooms were nice and clean, service great. My only complaint was the workout room was a little worn on the equipment side but everything was working and I got...

I stayed here with my husband and my sister in a two queen room with a kitchenette (additional sink, microwave, and mini-fridge). The room was nice--clean and spacious; free wi-fi; and the price was extremely reasonable for downtown, in my opinion. The pool and hot tub are on the petite side, but we had no competition for them so that...

I attended a conference nearby and the conference hotel was full. I arrived in the midst of a rare (even for Minnesota) April snowstorm, and this hotel was exactly what I wanted. It's within walking distance of the light rail, the price was reasonable, and the location was convenient. I experienced no problems, and everything was exactly as expected. The...

I come to Minneapolis 5 Times a year and I tried different lodging. Unfortunately this is the only one where I found noisy rooms due to traffic and or inside sound insulation. Breakfast is relatively pour considering the cost per night. For 30 or 40 dollars more you can find somethin much better and close to this hotel.

I was in town for a convention/training and the convention hotel was booked for the 1st night of my week stay. I chose the Holiday Inn Express since it was right down the street from the "Convention Hotel". The room was VERY clean and the bed was ABOVE AVERAGE comfy. When I arrived I asked the associate if I could...

We liked this hotel. Friendly staff, great service, free wifi, nice room and convenient breakfast. We were 2 blocks of the Convention Center, and a short walk to Orchestra Hall, and Nicolet Mall. There's also convenient access to the Interstate.

I really liked this hotel, the outside looks pretty plain jane, but inside you get the full treatment, great service, great room and great breakfast all in an incredible location. Not only are you within walking distance of the convention center, you are a short walk from orchestra hall, Brits pub, nicolet mall and if it wasn't for one incredibly...
