Aloft or Sheraton Midtown Minneapolis


i initially booked Sheraton but have been receiving a lot of negative feedback regarding the hotel's condition and the neighbourhood. can some one suggest how would Aloft be? and how to get to Aloft from MSP and how to go to MOA?

Aloft would be a quick walk from the Downtown East "aka Metrodome" light rail station, and in my opinion, a much better locale that Midtown for your goals. It's still downtown, and walkable to the "core" of downtown. There are restaurants and I believe a little market very close.

Westin or W would be a bit more convenient, if using SPG points, but Aloft is a nice, fun hotel.

The Sheraton Midtown is a fine hotel on its own but not in a desirable location (unless your purpose is to use the nearby hospital). It is often misrepresented as being downtown Minneapolis in the aggregation sites like hotwire.

It is not downtown, and the surrounding neighborhood is not good for walking around and sightseeing. Or for connecting to light rail.

Aloft is an excelent hotel and gives you nice access to riverfront area, restaurants and the light rail (Blue and Green lines). Use Blue Line to connect to the airport and the mall of america.

As stated, the Sheraton gets thrown in the mix, primarily on Hotwire and Priceline.

Aloft is a fine option for your needs and location and a relatively new property.
