We enjoyed our stay at The Hotel Minneapolis. The lobby and reception area is a beautiful combination of historical bank architecture and modern decor. The vibe is elegant and yet relaxed. Our room was clean, the bathroom was modern and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant has a great breakfast so upgrading to the breakfast package is a very good value. You can get to nearly anywhere downtown by using the skyway system which makes going to sporting events or dinner an easy task any time of year. The hotel is also right on the train line so you can get to the U of M, downtown St. Paul, many local breweries/taprooms, both airports, and the Mall of America on the train. Parking is very expensive but there are less expensive options that can be found a few blocks away. Remember that this is a city hotel so don't expect views of anything other than other buildings. Overall it is highly recommended and we would definitely stay here again.
Although there was an event being held at the hotel and the lobby area was quite crowded on Friday afternoon when we arrived, we were received with a friendly welcome and checked in promptly. The rooms are large, bright and airy which is a nice change from all the dark, drab rooms we have stayed in in the past. We did not eat or drink at the hotel facilities but the menu options looked appealing. Definitely no complaints on this facility and we are already planning a return trip to Loews Minneapolis in the Spring. Keep up the great work!
From check in to check out, the hotel staff were exceptionally helpful. One of the check in staff recommended a restaurant off on a side street that he "guaranteed" would be great and he was right! It's those types of extras that made this a great experience.
Four of us had a pleasant stay in the spacious room. Great hotel bar, excellent location for downtown evening activities. My only complaint is the walls were quite thin and neighboring guests were up very late. Even though they were only talking and laughing, and not being loud or obnoxious, I was kept awake late into the night.
A “hot dish” of arts and industry, downtown offers 8 miles of skyway connecting retailers and eateries. At night, big-name acts visit Target Center Arena and First Avenue, a rock venue immortalized in the Prince film “Purple Rain.” Arts lovers take to the Guthrie Theater and Walker Arts Center, while sports fans catch the Minnesota Twins at the Metrodome.
