Aloft MSP

Convenient location. Upcoming area. Staff very friendly. Great amenities. Housekeeping slow in getting room cleaned. Twice decided to decline to have room cleaned over seven days—just switched towels.

Great downtown hotel

I love the Aloft hotels because you know exactly what you are going to get. They're clean, fun, have great pools, etc. Recommended for a downtown Minneapolis night on the town.

Great downtown location

I needed a comfortable place to stay for 2 nights on a business trip, and this place fit the bill. The hotel is modern, clean, and situated near downtown and right next to the old mill district with a great park, bike path, walkway, etc. The room is pretty simple and could have done with a comfortable chair (it had only a desk chair that was too low for the desk). Minimal amenities in the room, but sufficient. Good price.

Business trip

The hotel was ice cold. They turned down the heat when I was at work and it took an hour to heat up the room. The next day the heat did not work and they moved me to another hotel at 1 am in the morning with a 6 am flight. Will never stay there again!

Fantastic Base Camp

Aloft was our base of operations for a long weekend in Minneapolis, and we could not have been happier with the hotel. The room was great, the bar was fun and funky, and the location—near the bike paths and a bike share station—was ideal. We have another stay scheduled for February, and are very excited to experience it again.

Great

Check in went well, Parking was very limited even thought the web page gave reference to parking. Rooms were nice. Hall ways were nice except the cleaning carts had put big scraps in the walls from moving them down the halls, With the hotel looking so nice, this didn't look well.

Great room! Great price!

We stayed at the Aloft in Minneapolis for 5 nights over Thanksgiving. It was a great location on the edge of downtown across from the new stadium. It was about one minute off of both 35W and 94. The room was fine with modern furniture. The lobby was nice with limited, reasonably priced food. There is a bar with great happy hour specials. The pool is nice as well. There is a parking garage across the street, but we could always either park in the limited 5 hotel guest spots, or park on the street at the meter, then move it in the morning. Great deal!
