Location is great

Staff has been friendly, dry cleaning service was prompt. Hotel overal is nice, clean and the neighborhood is great with a brewery right next door. A little of the beaten path for downtown but enough going on in the area to get a good taste of Minneapolis without being bombarded by too many people like other hotels a little further downtown.

Nice surprise

I travel a lot and can usually tell based on hotel chain, location and price what to expect. In this case very pleasantly surprised by quality, service and amenities for great price. Don't travel to Minneapolis much so maybe market is cheaper up here. Great hotel at great price. Staff friendly and very upscale look. Great location to access Minneapolis or St. Paul.

Very short walk to the closest light rail station. This will get you many places in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Including Target field, Mall of America, the Airport and Downtown Minneapolis.

Hastily Planned Trip

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make it to my friend's wedding out in Minneapolis, but when I found out I could go (3 days before the wedding) I was able to book with the Courtyard and they were very accommodating. The lobby is nice and it has a bar, the hotel is close to downtown and has a few cool brewery/restaurants within a 300 ft. radius.

comfortable, modern hotel

My family stayed here in order to attend a Twins/Yankees baseball game and the goal was to stay close enough to walk to Target Field--very doable at 1.5 miles away. If you're not into walking, there is a complimentary shuttle that will take you to the light train station which will take you there for $1.75 a person. Hotel is very modern in design, in a neighborhood that is renovating. Excellent fitness room and the Bistro in the hotel had a delicious and reasonably priced breakfast. Our room (with 2 queen beds) was comfortable and spacious--well worth the price. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback is that the parking is pricey--$20 for an overnight.

Nice place to stay

We enjoy the hotel a lot, besides it was very clean and has comfy rooms. The dinning at restaurant and bar was excellent. Very well service for breakfast, plenty types of beverages at the bar and delicious meals.

Not what I expected

From the pictures and descriptions online, I expected this to be an ordinary, average hotel to simply stay one night. I did not have high expectations or an inflated sense of what should be provided. For one, there is no convenient parking. You have the option to park in a parking garage ($17/day) that is next door, but not attached to the hotel and is cumbersome to get to and from, particularly with your bags in the snow. The staff was not rude, per se, but also not particularly helpful or articulate. There were hairs in my bed (someone else's) but luckily no bedbugs. The swinging latch on the door had been ripped off. The shower door was uneven and slid open repeatedly throughout the duration of my shower. To top it off, the elevator was broken. All three of them in fact, to which the staff seemed uninterested in providing a solution. I stayed on the 9th floor and walked the stairs down with my bags. Oh, and while there is a restaurant/bar called the Bistro, it is fairly expensive and there is no complimentary breakfast. Also, I don't recommend taking a cab as they are far overpriced and have no meter. Stay at your own risk.

Fun Valentines weekend

Beautiful hotel & great price! Very clean & modern in a great location! Parking was an extra $14/night and breakfast at the Bistro (on-site) restaurant was a little expensive, but we had a great weekend!! Would definitely stay here again!!
