Very pleasant, although large and corporate hotel

If you need to be in the South Minneapolis area, certainly a large, full-service, very clean opportunity. Not much personality.

Nice downtown hotel

I stayed here due to the proximity to Target Field. It also offers shuttle service to the games. It's a nice, reasonably priced place. Everything was in order and worked without issues.

Excellent trip for a concert

I have been to this hotel many many times. I love its location and staying in a suite is almost like a second home for me.

Great hotel

This hotel was very clean and staff was friendly. We stayed at it for a concert that was at the Target Center, a little bit of a walk but not bad at all.

Good for business travel

Comfortable rooms and plenty of amenities with warm and helpful staff. The restaurant has surprisingly good offerings, albeit at hotel prices. Walkable to light rail but a little removed from the action.

Fantastic - convenient location

Very good as usual. The Suite is nice as it seems less like a hotel room and worth the extra cost in my opinion

football game

Room air didn't work the first night and fixtures in the shower fell for no reason while in the shower and hit my foot. We were in the older part of the hotel not like the rest that's updated.

Awesome vacation!!

The location was perfect, we were able to walk to the bus stop to take us to the State Fair,easy walk to catch the Blue line to Mall of America, a nice walk to Target Field to watch a Twins game. The rooms were very comfortable, though I wish there was a microwave . The hot tub was always crowded with kids,so my husband wasn't able to enjoy it. The staff was super friendly. Although, there was a particular night manager who didn't keep his word when he told us he'd get us a "juicy Lucy hamburger" and put together some Minnesota keepsakes to take home. That was totally disappointing when they can't keep their word. But all in all, we would still stay here again!! And the weather was perfect too!!
