PERFECT location, very easy to get to, great parking, very nice check-in staff, room perfect cleanliness, HUGE Starbucks, open late, till midnight, down the hall in the foyer area, all in all, just great! A bit pricey, but Minneapolis seems to be that way :) at least for a hotel.

Good when visituing U MN

The hotel is an easy walk from the Bell Museum as well as from an array of restaurants on Washington Street. And trhe Applebee's at the hotel is more than adequate.

Overnight Getaway

Stay in the hotel was fine. However, a maid used her pass key and entered our room without knocking while we were inside. Unfortunate.

Great location

Best place to stay if you are visiting the University. The hotel was two blocks from our son's dorm. Room was average, found someone else's toe nail clippings on the bathroom floor which is disgusting. Staff was very polite. Pricey hotel for not offering much by way of anything complimentary...continental breakfast would have been nice.

We stayed at The Commons while visiting the University of Minnesota. The location on the campus couldn't have made it easier. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

great location

the best thing about The Commons is its location in the heart of the University & Stadium Village. it puts you in walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars, parks, etc etc., and of course the football stadium. The rooms are fine.

Fun weekend

This hotel is conveniently located in the U and perfect for using as a base to visit our daughter. Parking is a bit of a hassle since there are very limited spots behind the hotel but there is a structure attached run by the University which is ok.

On the University Campus

Stayed at the Commons because I was there for a meeting at the alumni center. The Hotel has a nice fitness center, a little larger than most. The staff was very helpful. Self parking behind the hotel was extra ($15). The room was comfortable although the duvet cover was stained. My room was across from the elevator and there was a male team of some kind, I think, on the floor so quite loud. A Starbucks on site with very quick service. No complementary breakfast. I would stay here again for similar event but there are too many nice hotels around to stay here for any other reason. I would recommend to someone wanting to stay on campus but not for other reason.
