First Visit, Will Be Back!

A first-rate choice for anyone wanting to be in the heart of the Minneapolis Warehouse District. Better choice for comfort, decor and value than more expensive downtown hotel options. Built to be virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding renovated and newly built lofts, condos and apartments. Modern decor but not 50s kitsch, very good front desk staff, studio queen room was clean, attractive, complete kitchen, spotless bath, comfortable 'den' area with flatscreen TV which swivels to face the ultra-comfortable queen-size pillow-top bed. Underground secure parking, all access points to hotel by guest room card only. Popular with parents of UM students, Twins game and Target Center ticketholders, visitors of friends in the warehouse district condo community. Not a choice for families with young children, this is a sophisticated cultural district and the hotel focuses on accessibility to same. Walkable quiet city street, well lit. Just across the river from the popular lower NE arts district, Lunds, Surdyks, avant garde shops and bistros. Ask for room on upper level facing street if you want quiet; facing pool and cocktail patio if want to enjoy late night laughter and chatter. Have already rebooked for next month. This is where I will stay now when coming down from Minnesota's North Shore to see family and friends, shop visit galleries and theatres, catch a Twins game.

great weekend getaway!!

we had a great time, quiet stay, comfortable, the only thing I would improve is the parking is limited, and they charge $14 to park in their underground garage, also the specific weekend we visited we had to wake up and move our cars by 9am so they could paint the parking lot stripes, I think that $14 fee should have been waived, that was inconvenient

Hotel

It was alright. Nothing spectacular but it worked for what we needed it for. It does have a full kitchen so that is a plus if someone is staying there for more than 1 night.

Staff was great, location good if you don't need to be downtown. Walk to convention center was around 25 min. Light rail is about 10 min. Not good if you have to carry baggage. Over all very good experience. Continental breakfast was good needs a few more items (i.e. doughnuts,Danish). Would stay here again.

Take light rail to downtown then use buses north or south. For food Cuzzy's chili is great.

Family visit

TownSuites Marriot DT Minn., is clean,comfortable and convenient. We especially enjoyed the kitchenette and efficient use of space - the room had everything we needed. The pool and exercise room were a real plus. We walked to a Twins game at Target Field and enjoyed walking and bicycling on the nearby bike/pedestrian path along the river. Close to many good restaurants. We will most definitely stay there again on our next visit to Minneapolis.

The Science Museum in St. Paul is not to be missed. The over 500 miles of bicycle paths are extraordinary. If you like to bicycle this is the town to visit.

Best location for business trip

Avoid the hassle and expense of downtown and stay in the warehouse district. Best atmosphere, best restaurants, nice neighbourhood. Easy parking, free wifi. Couldn't ask for more. I would always return here.

Apartment feel in warehouse distict

These are suites so they come with a full kitchen. It is in the up and coming warehouse district, easy walk to downtown but more than likely a better stay if you are going to a sporting event. Gate secured parking avail able at $13/day. There is a pool table in the lobby.
