Not your fault. We use valet a lot and room service. The lack of a microwave anywhere was weird. Very convenient for the Falcons game so that was a big plus. Thanks

Great location, especially if you are heading to a Vikings game. The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make your experience pleasant.

Staff was friendly and room was clean. Very close to the U.S. Bank Stadium. The only negative was the food. All they had was prepackaged sandwiches and salads, yogurt, fruit, ice-cream and snacks. Not a sit down restaurant, but there are restaurants right across the road.

We stayed for University of MN move-in. While not the closest to the U, it is still pretty close - an easy couple minute drive or even walk/run/bike. There was ample street parking as well, which we used instead of the lot across the street. We had a rate that included a breakfast allowance, which was good, but the food items were pricey even considering this was a high-level property. Hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful.

Nice hotel in Minneapolis. Very close to many attractions of the city. Clean hotel with friendly staff.

The rooms were clean, not much information in the room about services provided. Could here the city traffic through the night time hours so didn’t sleep the best. Depends on what you are used to.

All n All, a solid experience and one I hope to repeat soon!

The layout of the room is terrific. Only average size, but very functional

We have stayed here before with no issues but this last time was a nightmare. We got to the hotel and checked in and went up to our room. We walk in a there wasn't two queen beds like we booked but one king bed... for 4 people?! We called the front desk and long story short they told us that anyone who books off site gets booted into different rooms if need be. We asked for a roll away and they said they were out. A few hours go by and we go to a show then come back and ask again for a bed and they said that we should've asked for one earlier (which we did!!!) and then proceed to tell us that they are out of blankets as well. So now our 10 year old son is stuck sleeping on the floor, being super uncomfortable. The front desk staff was not friendly or helpful. In fact in the elevator there were several other people very upset and complaining about the exact same situation we were having. Shortly after getting home my wife realized she forgot some medication in the room and called the hotel, talked to the front desk, which transferred her to housekeeping which she NEVER heard back from. Very disappointed. We really liked the location but after this we may never be back.

Good experience. Please consider changing to regular Heinz catsup. The catsup there is terrible. Also I checked out on a Monday and requested a 1 hour late check out. This should be easy to accommodate, but the front desk representative just dismissed my request without even really checking with houskeeping or anyone. A starwood preferred guest should be able to get a 1 hour late check out on a Monday. Sad.

Check in was easy and quick. Room was trendy and exceptional clean. Was worried about the bed when I saw but we slept great. Was also worried about walking around the area after dark but pleasantly surprised by how safe I felt. Parking is minimal but there’s a parking ramp next door which was $14-16 for a 10-12 hour park. Never had a problem finding a spot. I included breakfast in room charge but I wouldn’t do it again. You’re allotted $20 each morning for 1 adult 1 child but 2 breakfast choices end up equaling more than $20. My 9 yr old wasn’t too impressed with the choices but the pancake and berries choice was the best for her. Food was very good though. Hotel was bustling on a Saturday night in the bar/lobby and surrounding bars/restaurants. Pool area small but very nice and clean. We will definitely be staying here again!! Very impressed!!

Loud music in the middle of the night and loud people walking through the halls late at night.

Great location, close to the freeway. Room was basic, bed was comfortable. Very clean room

I’ve stayed in several Alofts and this one is just okay. The hotel staff was. The room was clean but did not have any soap (they ran out). Overall it was standard for an Aloft.

Got stuck in a handicap room which had a bed a few inches off the floor which is fine if your handicapped but not so great otherwise. When i asked if I could change they said no. The benefits I guess of booking with Orbitz for a cheap rate. The window heating unit was as most are loud and annoying.

The hot tub was so brown it wasn’t even usable. The pool was almost as filthy. We were told that their restaurant/bar would be open until at least midnight. It closed at 9:30, and the menu listed on their websit no longer exists. They only serve about five side dishes. Nothing was done about any of the issues either.

Like some other reviews, the only really bad thing about this hotel is the heating / air units. They're wall mounted to the exterior walls like a Super 8 or Motel 6. So if its hot, or just really really cold outside (our visit), then it kicks on every 3-5 minutes. Not gonna lie, they're loud. Seemingly louder than what you'd get at a Super 8. I'm a heavy sleeper and it woke me up every other time. My better half is a light sleeper and she didn't really sleep at all. The other reviews don't emphasize this enough. We would have booked another place if we would have known how loud they'd be and how often they'd run in sub-zero temps. Otherwise! It's an amazing hotel. Would be perfect to stay in during fair weather, especially for the price! Great hotel, excellent staff, close enough location to everywhere.

Great fun vibe, cool bar clean room, staff very friendly
