Friendly staff, convenient location, comfortable rooms

We had a nice short stay. I was surprised to find out they had a shuttle service over to the U of M. We took advantage of this service. It was cent to have to pay for parking again.

Great location. Easy to find. Loved the decor. Professional and friendly staff.

We stayed at this hotel because we were going to a concert at the Cedar Cultural Center. It was a short walk to the venue. The hotel was beautiful. The only down-side to this place is that there is no hot tub. The pool is small, but the fitness center is nice sized for a hotel! Staff were all very nice. Paying for parking was also a down-side.

My experience at the Courtyard Marriot Minneapolis was fantastic. The place was very clean, the people were very helpful with all my questions. I would definitely stay there again, and intend to in the upcoming weeks.

Love going to Minneapolis, love the hotel, best rooms on top floor. A must stop across the street is the corner bar, the owners are great people. Just a short walk from the hotel to light rail that will take you anywhere you need to go for a very cheap price.

We were in Minneapolis for a concert at Grumpy's and this hotel is a very short, convenient walk away. The staff were polite and helpful and the rooms well kept. The bed was so comfy, probably the best sleep I've gotten in a while. We didn't have time to check out the pool, but judging by the rest of the hotel, it probably would have been awesome.

We had a 2 queen suite and the room was nice. There was enough space for our family. The valet service was handy - we did not self park but the parking garage was very close. The pool was okay (maybe a little cold for me) and there was not hot tub. Kids breakfast were reasonably priced at the bistro. Would stay again.

Came here for a business trip. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Free shuttle transportation was extremely convenient and prompt. Shuttle drivers were very nice. Rooms were nice and clean. New facility so very fresh property.

Hotel staff were above and beyond with service. shuttle to the university for concert.

The hotel was OK. The only problem we had was that they gave us a room that wasn't cleaned up. We talked to the receptionist and he gave us another room, but it looked like they didn't know which room is ready. Other than that, I think everything else was good, Oh..Their coffeemaker in the room was very small, could only make coffee for one person at a time. I just think the hotel was expensive, for the location and what it had to offer

Every staff member went above and beyond. Our stay was great.

Staff has been friendly, dry cleaning service was prompt. Hotel overal is nice, clean and the neighborhood is great with a brewery right next door. A little of the beaten path for downtown but enough going on in the area to get a good taste of Minneapolis without being bombarded by too many people like other hotels a little further downtown.

I travel a lot and can usually tell based on hotel chain, location and price what to expect. In this case very pleasantly surprised by quality, service and amenities for great price. Don't travel to Minneapolis much so maybe market is cheaper up here. Great hotel at great price. Staff friendly and very upscale look. Great location to access Minneapolis or St. Paul.

This was very nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and it was very close to the light rail.

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make it to my friend's wedding out in Minneapolis, but when I found out I could go (3 days before the wedding) I was able to book with the Courtyard and they were very accommodating. The lobby is nice and it has a bar, the hotel is close to downtown and has a few cool brewery/restaurants within a 300 ft. radius.

Nice room and good location. Stayed one night. Easy walking distance to the downtown. Only downside there is no hot tub or sauna.

Staff did respond by getting a clean comforter and vacuuming.

My family stayed here in order to attend a Twins/Yankees baseball game and the goal was to stay close enough to walk to Target Field--very doable at 1.5 miles away. If you're not into walking, there is a complimentary shuttle that will take you to the light train station which will take you there for $1.75 a person. Hotel is very modern in design, in a neighborhood that is renovating. Excellent fitness room and the Bistro in the hotel had a delicious and reasonably priced breakfast. Our room (with 2 queen beds) was comfortable and spacious--well worth the price. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback is that the parking is pricey--$20 for an overnight.

completely renovated. Highly recommend. Rooms updated and beds very comfortable.
