Once-historic bank becomes modern Minneapolis luxury

The downtown Westin Minneapolis is a faithful blend of historic significance and modern luxury. Transformed from the Farmers & Mechanics Bank, this Tony four-star hotel retains the original World War II era woodwork, marble staircase and vaulted lobby. Guest rooms are equipped with modern amenities like MP3 players, flat-screen TVs and Internet access (fees apply). Following adventure on the town, the end-of-day rewards here are plenty: an indoor pool cloaked in midnight blue, a dimly lit cocktail lounge and a savory dish or decadent treat at B.A.N.K.

Highlights

  • The penthouse patio boasts panoramic views of the city
  • Original bank vault converted into a wine cellar at B.A.N.K.
  • Partake in a true "no interruption" function in the hotel's vault-secured meeting room
  • Walking distance to Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis Convention Center, Metrodome, Target Center and Hennepin Theatre District

Rooms

All 214 guest rooms at The Westin Minneapolis offer superior comfort. Decorated in sandstone colors blended with creams, whites and bamboo, the atmosphere is refreshingly modern. Featuring the famed Westin Heavenly Bed, all beds are dressed in rich fabrics and include dreamy touches like an ultra-thick pillow top mattress, fluffy down comforter and lots of throw pillows. Rooms at the Westin come complete for business travelers with a spacious work desk, mesh swivel chair and chaise lounge. Request an upgrade for a city or courtyard views or a private balcony.

Features

The Westin Minneapolis keeps indoor and outdoor fitness buffs in mind. Warm up in the hotel's fitness center and heated indoor pool. Golfers are minutes from the Highland Golf Course and Stonebrooke Golf Club. Valet parking is also available for an added fee.

Dining

Located in the lobby, B.A.N.K. offers stylish American dining. The lively open atmosphere is great for people watching across the huge center-stage oval bar and large dining room. Those looking for a quiet escape can take to the more intimate B.A.N.K. lounge for small plates and cocktails.

Downtown Action

Hotel was nice and professional - walking distance from Hennepin Avenue and near Nicollet Mall. Could easily hear corridor noise and neighbors doors closing. Modern rooms. Valet parking was convenient as ramp parking was not.

westin for garth

We stayed at the westin for the recent garth brooks concert. The location was perfect, close to everything downtown, easily walked to everything. The only complaint was the skywalk attached to the adjacent parking ramp where our car was parked doesn't get unlocked until noon on sunday. That was very hard to check out because we had to walk from the hotel and drive around one way streets to get back to get our luggage.This didn't have to be that inconvenient, very easy fix if they wanted to. Other than that it was very nice and comfortable.

Fun City Hotel

Awesome experience here, and everyone went out of their way to be so friendly. Very cool pool and workout room. Location smack in the middle of town. Valet great, but seemed a bit overworked sometime. Overall, excellent, other than one tiny thing--the costs for parking ($40/day I think) and wifi (around $14/day) were high! We paid for convenience, though, and really enjoyed our stay.

Best time ever

Not much to say other than everything went perfect from check in to check out. Every one was exceptional to me, and beyond the little fridge in the room not working, everything was perfect. And I never used the fridge for anything other than bottled water, so I didn't care that it didn't work.
