We went to Minneapolis for the weekend, The Hotel was Amazing!!! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The light rail was a close walk and we used it to get the Mall of AMerica and down to the University of MInnesota for hockey games!!! We will be staying here again!!!

We primarily selected this hotel based on other reviews and price, but after staying there its location in the heart of downtown Minneapolis is its selling point. It was extremely convenient to get to the Nicollet Mall light rail station, which connects you to the airport, Mall of America and other popular sites. Restaurants, bars, shopping and other attractions are... More

My daughter chose the terrace on the 8th floor of this hotel for her wedding. It was beautiful with the downtown skyline in the background. We had a hotel room connected to the terrace, which was convenient and a nice room. Those rooms are busy, so sometimes they do not get them ready by check-in. So they gave us a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. The staff were friendly and helpful. The deal on parking on weekends was good ($12 per day on weekends). Annoying that there was no free/included wifi, instead they charged for it (think it was $10 for 24 hours, which doesn't break the bank, but in this day and age, it's not the norm). The... More
