College Reunion Minneapolis

The Commons was a nice surprise. Located at the edge of the University of Minnesota East Campus in Minneapolis. The 8 story building has new, clean contemporary look. Within the building Applebies Resturant, Copy shop, Starbucks and barber shop. Across the street for a $1.75 the Light rail system takes you to Downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul in 15 minutes or Mall of America in 30 minutes. A nice surprise great spot.

Great hotel for a Gopher game!

My spouse and I stayed as a couple at this hotel over the 2014 Winter. It was a perfect hotel to stay in if you're catching a Gopher game. The hotel is a block away from TCF Bank Stadium. Parking is a breeze, although you do have to park in a ramp since their parking lot on site is rather small (They will pay for you parking in the ramp). The room was clean and comfortable. Absolutely no issues with our stay.

Great Location at the U of M

The hotel provided all the services we desired. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. The location, in the center of campus was a perk as our business brought us to the university. Parking is extra.

Decent hotel

Nice hotel, but a little expensive for the quality. Room service was ridiculously expensive for a small amount of mediocre food, and we had to go down to restaurant to retrieve condiments. Request for new pillows because of allergies to the down ones took almost an hour to be fulfilled. Overall the staff was friendly and the hotel was nice, but I believe I could have gotten similar quality for a lower price.

Great Weekend Getaway

We stayed here while we were in town for the Fleetwood Mac concert and it was wonderful. Funky, beautiful décor outside and it. Whoever did the interior design on this place outdid themselves. The staff was helpful and our room was gorgeous clean and comfortable. The location was a little awkward but other than that no complaints! Would definitely stay there again

Outstanding Hotel experience!

The Commons is a bit pricey, but worth every nickle. Very impressive as you drive up, and actually find a place to park even as tens of thousands are converging on the Campus for Packers/Vikings contest. Since we were attending the game first, we took a chance they might check us in early. Unfortunately, the Hotel was booked solid, but they did confirm our reservation, direct us to the parking tower ($15 overnight), and even volunteered to hold our luggage until after the game if we wished. This is when everyone else was paying $20 if they could find a spot at all, for the duration of the game only. The entire place was impeccably clean, tastefully furnished, with all the bells and whistles... like a Keurig right in the room! It seems they must have renovated the entire place very recently. Short walk to Stadium, Walgreens and one of the best Japanese restaurants I've been too conveniently located right across the street (Haiku Japanese Bistro <-- very necessary plug, also impeccable) along with a plethora of dining choices, bus and incredibly quite train service right outside the front door if you wanted to go anywhere else in the city. If you're going to attend an event on that side of town, look no further.

Couldn't possibly be closer to TCF Bank Stadium... but don't wait until Sunday to buy your Tailgating Supplies, as the gigantic liquor store we stopped at said they are closed Sundays.
