    Despite construction on the outside of the building, I did not hear any noise so that was very pleasant and it didn't seem to disrupt the environment. The room I received must have been an upgraded room as it had a whole separate living area from the bedroom. The staff at the front desk was friendly and my room came with a hot breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet was basic but that is all I needed, it had eggs and breakfast meats as well as cold items. There were only a few things I didn't care for which was that the room was lacking light in multiple places and it was hard to see some things - like where the mini bar/microwave was.. The bathroom was kind of funky (not in a good way) but it was functional and that is what is important. I typically do not stay at this hotel - however my normal choice was unavailable and I took a chance and I can honestly say that if my first spot is not available I would definitely stay here again.

    I stayed here for my bachelorette party and it was nice.  It is located in a decent place downtown (across from the Target HQ).  The rooms are "suites" which means there's a minature livingroom area that openly connects to the bedroom portion.  
    We tried to fit everyone in one of the suite's the livingroom portion before we left to go out - talk about CRAMPED!    The decor in the rooms wasn't anything to write home about, but it definitely wasn't uber ugly hotel decor.  Their front desk agents were really nice and helpful, very accommodating.
    Their beds are the typical Hilton beds which are AMAZING!  Definitely a plus.  They don't have a gift shop, only coolers that you purchase from at the Front Desk.  The lobby has a great fire place and total Minnestoan feel to it.
    Breakfast in the restaurant in the morning was not great.  They had a buffet - everything was soggy and gross from sitting around all morning.  One person in our group ordered off the menu and her food came with a hair cooked through it. GROSS.  They comp'd her meal, which they should have comp'd everyone's because we were all feeling sick after that.  But there's a Starbuck's connected to the hotel, which is a plus.

    The Pluses:
    -Cookies on check-in
    -Door between sleeping and living/working area of the suite
    -Convenient location in the city center
    -Moisturizer and body lotion in the bathroom (in addition to shampoo/conditioner)
    The Minuses:
    -Fan in the bathroom with a ridiculously loud squeaky belt
    -Two light switches, both controlling every light in the suite
    -None of said lights were in the bedroom (seriously - no working lights in there)
    -Dark, cave-like corridors
    Somewhere between the dust encrusted light switch plates, the dented and kinked lampshades, and the shaky and slow elevators, this place left a little to be desired.  The rates are great for being right downtown, but at the same time, it feels like the rooms and amenities haven't been updated since some time in the Reagan v. Mondale campaign.  On a budget?  Go for it.  Have a couple extra twenskies for your weekend?  Go somewhere more recent than this place.  I hate to say it, but "Where's the beef?"

    I stayed here the other weekend while we were celebrating a friend's birthday out on the town. I was so surprised by how nice of a room my friend and I got for the price! 2 flat screens, separate living room/office area and the beds were SUPER comfortable!! I couldn't have asked for more at that price. This will be my go-to hotel for when I want to stay downtown!

    This is my hotel of choice when I have to visit MSP. It really offers the best bang for the buck.

    First and foremost I should say that the hotel is dated. The rooms are aging (I am pretty sure the fridge and microwave are almost as old as me), the lobby is small, and the gym is pretty sad. That being said, I keep coming back. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are always clean, and it is in a great location. The rooms are very big (all suite hotel) which is nice to separate work from the sleeping area. The location is fantastic, right around the corner from some of the best pubs in the city. The parking is cheap ($10 a night if booked with the room).

    The biggest deciding factor for me is the price. I just can't justify the premiums for the other area hotels. Yes the rooms are nicer at other hotels, but the Double Tree offers bigger. I have yet to have a problem with this hotel, and will continue to come back, hoping one of these days they will refresh it.

    Great location for business.  Target HQ is across the street and the hotel is right downtown.  

    The hotel is dated, Matthew C is right.  The suites are nice and I would call the room sufficient.  The rooms are clean but the only place in the hotel with wireless is the lobby.

    Definitely a good place for the money!

    I love Doubletree! How could I not rate them highly when they let me check into my room at 8:30AM--GRATIS!? Most hotels would be like the earliest I can possibly check you in if a room is available is 12PM.

    Sure Doubletree is not the glitzy mod hotel like Graves 601 Hotel, but it's a clean, decent early 90s looking hotel with really nice people.  The room is spacious (can fit 6 pp in a suite (2 beds and the couch in the living room is a pull out bed). Complimentary Neutrogena bathroom products and chocolate cookie. $30-60 less/night than the surrounding 4 star hotels. Location wise -it's perfect, if you want to hang out in Downtown. However you can catch a bus on Hennepin and head to Uptown.

    For those who have a Starbucks addition, it's connected to the hotel.

    Parking was $15/night for us, and it was a pain at times as the hotel doesn't reserve a certain amount of parking spaces for their guests, but we managed to find meter parking (free on weekends) and the hotel took off all parking charges.

    Room - 3.5

    I like the Hilton Suites because they are great sized rooms for a good price. This hotel was no exception and the front desk staff was friendly, but I found some of the other staff to be a little subpar.

    The room had the usual suite amenities and they even offer free water and soda in the fridge. However, mine was missing the water and instead had someone's half drank iced tea in it. The maid apparently did not pay much attention to the fridge when cleaning. This was disappointing, but I got water with my room service so I wasnt missing the water for too long. Instead I was too busy enjoying the complimentary warm and absolutely delicious cookies they provided at check-in!

    I was disappointed again in the morning though when my breakfast room service was over 10 minutes late, and there was no answer when I tried calling. I wouldn't have been as annoyed if the woman apologized, but instead she brought in the food as if there was no problem at all.

    This is my go to hotel when I visit Target on business.    It was already nicely appointed for the price........and now they are doing a 7 figure rennovation.   Hope it doesn't jack the price up though.

    Seperate bedroom / living room and office.    Very comfortable beds.   2 Flat Screens.    Good amentities.  

    I also like that I can rent a private MEETING room which I use as a mini showroom and then my buyers can come across the street and we can conduct business with some quality time together.    I can cater in lunch as well.

    The staff here is VERY helpful and friendly.     Last time I stayed here I left an important sample behind and they found it and mailed to me for free.  

    SEE Customer Service is alive and well.

    I would stay here if I was traveling on business or with a lover.  Rooms were clean and comfortable.  Service was excellent.  Amenities were fine (neutrogena facial cleanser, haircare and bodywash), tea and coffee selection was tasty...
    Parking- $20 bucks a day.  Meters are xpensive in Minneapolis so just park in a lot and save yourself the hassle... Valet is available and friendly.
    The gym was basic treadmill and free weights.  Business center offers complimentary use of computers and printer.

    It is centrally located from the Walker Museum, Target, Restaurants, New hotels and fun bars...

    I had a bad experience, mostly centered around the housekeeping department's terrible service. I did complain to DoubleTree corporate, and now have a free night if I ever come back, but that's questionable.

    We stayed here for three nights-  and it was a battle to get housekeeping to clean/turn-down our room. The first day they didn't show up, the second day they didn't come back in 15 minutes like asked. When I complained to the front desk about it, the housekeeping manager happened to be there, and he got very confrontational. The issue did eventually get dealt with, but I was shocked at the response.

    Also- the beds were uncomfortable and the room kinda smelly.

    Wifi costs money in the room (LAME!!) but it's fee in the lobby.

    Although I have not stayed at this Doubletree, I have patronized other ones throughout the U.S. They have clean, updated rooms and offer a little personal touch...upon arrival, you receive a fresh baked cookie to enjoy.

    Today, Doubletree was celebrating their 30th anniversary by handing out free cookies to patrons at Peavey Plaza (a stones' throw from their location). The cookies are homemade and are very tasty...just another perk to staying at Doubletree, or in this case knowing about their celebration.

    I spoke to the LaSalle Ave location manager and she indicated that they have spent millions on updating their rooms ($5-7 million is my recollection), however, I did not have a chance to stop in to see the updates. But the pictures below are indicative of a clean, modern room with all the amenities. FYI, Doubletree is now owned or affiliated with Hilton so their standards are remaining high.

    I will definitely stay at Doubletree next time I'd like to spend a night enjoying downtown nightlife!

    Checked out the Starbucks downstairs. Small selection of items, and the drinks were meh.
    The construction that we were told that we would not be hearing much of is all around us.  Right at 8am, we hearing what sounds like drills and hammering above and next to us.
    When we got in from our day out, the room we was refreshed, towel were ample.
    We're getting our cookie whenever we ask for it, but it is a hell of a way to wake up.

    I am a Hilton Gold member and travel to and stay at various Hilton properties all over, including many double trees.  Never have i ever experienced anything like this hotel. It is 24 degrees in Minneapolis and they refuse to turn on their heat. They need to advertise on the front page when booking NO HEAT. They said they would bring space heaters, took over an hour for the space heaters to come late at night, after I had to call the careline multiple times. There were no outlets to plug in the heaters and I had to unplug everything in the room and move furniture to find any plugs. My colleague plugged in her heaters causing a fuse to blow in the room.

    On top of that, I booked a king size bed and was given 2 fulls, saying the hotel was sold out (meanwhile i'm supposed to be UPGRADED as a hilton honors member, not downgraded). The waters and other items i'm supposed to have in the room also only came after SEVERAL calls, and the toilet is filthy.

    Unacceptable.

    We came here with a wedding party and really enjoyed our stay.
    The staff was amazingly nice and over accommodating, giving us cookies upon check in, plus our wedding gift baskets. They nicely pointed us out to various brunch places, and let us keep our car there a bit longer. Also, when our shuttles were delayed from picking us up from the reception, they came to the rescue, picking up stranded guests.
    Our room was clean and well maintained. The bed comfortable, though I would have liked a headboard. Plus, I loved my robe and two TVs me and the BF who can't agree what to watch.
    I only wish our bathroom was a tad bigger, as it felt rather cramped.

    Okay, it's not super fancy, or even pretty. But for the cost and the amount of room space, it is the best you can get. I worked with sales for a while planning this trip for our business trip. So maybe that's why we had such a good experience, but I almost miss the place! Small cozy lobby, starbucks is in the restaurant, friendly door staff, clean.
    When I entered my room, I was shocked at how large it was. You really wouldn't believe the deal we got. I could have stayed in my hotel room all day, it was so roomy. My bed was also huge and super comfy. And the toiletries are neutregena. No cute stores or anything like that, but I guess if that's what you want, you just have to walk down the street a bit. Highly recommend.

    I received an email in my inbox from the Doubletree advertising a room on NewyYears for $45.00. I thought for sure there would be strings. To my surprise there weren't.

    I booked the hotel online called my husband and told him we were staying DT Mpls for the fun of it, just a nice 10 min get away. It was fun.

    For $45.00 + tax the room we received was quite spacious, clean and an unbeatable value. Sure we could have driven back to St. Paul, but it was nice just to get away and not have to drive back on New Years Eve. We didn't pay for parking either, found on street parking at a non (holiday) governed meter.

    What a great hotel! The king room I got had a huge living room and bedroom both with TV's. The room was modern but cozy and the bed was so comfortable! Large bathroom with spacious standing shower. I'm a sucker for a big shower! Overall great experience for a decent price.

    While I have no need for a hotel in Minneapolis (although my dog sometimes disagrees), I recently had family in town for an extended stay and they had good things to report about the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel. The location is solid (within 2 blocks of The Local and about 200 feet away from Brit's Pub, so I was sold from the get-go) and the rooms were large and well-kept. The breakfast options for their buffet were limited, especially considering the hefty price tag, but my family received vouchers for the breakfast bar for every day they stayed here, which made it hard to complain.

    I am seeing some negative reviews on here for this hotel, and I'm thankful my family didn't have to deal with anything that is discussed in those reviews. The one negative that was a true annoyance is that they let an infinite number of cars into their parking garage, but they have a VERY finite number of spaces. Manuevering around to get back out of the garage was a hassle too.. not much room to move around in there, especially with 5 other cars trying to do the same thing.

    I usually have really positive associations with the Doubletree brand, but my stay this time was a little disappointing.  

    I stayed at my room over two days.  When I got back to my room at the end of day 1, the bed had been made, but the housekeeping service didn't seem as inclusive as I'm used to.  The ice bucket hadn't been dumped, I hadn't been provided with a new plastic liner, I hadn't been given new, clean water glasses, and the bathroom surfaces didn't look like they had been cleaned.  What's in this hotel's housekeeping regimen?  Shouldn't it usually include those things?

    Another thing was... due to the place being booked to capacity way in advance, I got stuck with a wheelchair accessible room with a lot of amenities.  One was a shower chair that was kind of "clamped on" to the tub.  It was a little annoying for me because I had to dance around it a little, so I asked the front desk person if someone could remove it.  It looked like a really quick job, but I just didn't want to play around with the hardware.

    She was really polite and said someone would go right up to do that.  I came back 2 hours later to go to bed, and she apologized that it hadn't been done, but I wanted to go to sleep, so I told her to wait til the next day.  The next day I get back at 8PM and again it hadn't been done.  So I had to call down and ask again.  I don't want to diss too hard, because her heart was in the right place, and she was nice about it every time I asked.  But how about I only need to ask once?

    Finally, the beds and bed linens were not as comfortable as I would have liked.  Makes me yearn for another hotel group's "Heavenly" amenities.

    Pretty nice hotel. Very close to my customer's offices and excellent restaurants.

    If you ask nicely, they'll give you an extra cookie at the check-in desk.

    Breakfast prices are a bit overpriced. Just walk down the street or through the tunnels and you'll find plenty of alternatives.

    Ode to Doubletree

    Oh Doubletree
    You stole my heart and now I'm with thee
    From the instant I bit into the warm, welcome cookie
    To the brilliant tea which was my fave,  Numi (local to myself!)

    Quiet's assurance on the 8th floor
    A fully-amenitied suite, to be sure!
    Useful and plentiful, the furniture
    Loved the pillows divine, for my head no pressure

    The faux granite was classy
    The drapes, the sheers, so sassy
    The wet bar and the couch for chillaxin'
    Next to "Free Ride" Nicollet, so no taxiin' (Yay!.. one block away)

    Your location just so fine
    Like aged, private reserve wine
    To Guthrie and Mill, I took my sweet time
    Ne'er to forget thee, offering you this humble rhyme.

    4.5 stars.
    Replete with a very clean, useful fitness room on the 4F, and a lobby that many patrons utilized for reading and chillin. The attached 2 story garage charges hotel patrons $17/nt for parking (able to find parking meter just outside for a fraction: they charge $1.50/hr for meters, M-F 08-18). Clean and spacious, true, but amenities are slightly dated. No flat screens here, and furniture is bit dated. However, there was a faux Herman Miller chair, and I sat in it and swiveled silly (then I proceeded to nab all the pens and the stationery, as I've done for decades..ooh! Fine point pen).

    Wolfgang Puck coffee, and Neutrogena products. Offered late checkout at 1400.

    PS Is a suite defined thusly as long as somewhere in the room there is a fridge and a microwave? Or does a suite necessarily have to have 2 separate rooms, which this one most certainly did: a LR and BR portion.

    I've stayed here a few times and always been quite happy with the service and the room itself. It's conveniently located by Target Corp HQ and several good restaurants downtown. There's a Starbucks connected to the lobby area (which is very cozy and has free internet, too.) I only wish it had direct access to the skyway, but thankfully it's only a couple of blocks away.

    Unfortunately, very unimpressive.

    I stayed for 5 days over this Christmas holiday (2013) visiting local family. Received no cookie on check in (that's a very minor point) but it went downhill from there.

    The first evening, I discovered the plumbing in the room didn't work well. The toilet didn't flush well, and the sink wouldn't stop dripping.

    Then, I discovered the thermostat appeared to have no effect on the room temperature. As the outside dipped below 0 degrees F, the room got colder and colder. I cranked the thermostat up to 80, then 85 ... no effect. Thank god there was a blanket in the closet. I shivered all night, even under the covers.

    Housekeeping didn't service my room at all the next day. I called the front desk, and the woman was apologetic and offered me some Starbucks vouchers. That was nice, but still a pain. The following days the room was serviced, but there was always an item missing ... the packs of coffee, the creamer, clean glasses, facial tissue ran out and weren't replaced. Every day it was something.

    I do realize I stayed over the Christmas holiday, and they were no doubt down to a skeleton crew ... but if you are going to keep your hotel open, you need to be able to take care of your customers. Otherwise, shut the hotel for the holiday and customers can stay somewhere else.

    Very disappointed in this hotel, will not be staying here again. In fact, this plus my San Diego experience has pretty much soured me on Doubletree altogether :(

    This DoubleTree is conveniently located at 11th and LaSalle, just one block off Nicollet Mall and right behind Brit's Pub (our room overlooked the Brit's Pub patio).  It's nice, clean, and everyone was friendly.  They give you a freshly baked cookie at check-in.

    Our room was nice, with a living room area with a couch and TV and a bedroom area with a TV, separated by the bathroom.  The room had a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, and the fridge was stocked with a few sodas and bottled water.  

    The bed was so very comfortable and I wanted to take the bedding home with me, especially the pillows.

    There is a Starbucks attached to the hotel, and a small lounge with a bar and food.  You'll want to make other plans for breakfast - the breakfast buffet is small and costs a staggering $14 PER PERSON.

    If you don't want to read all of this, pay attention to the part about smelly floor and bad breakfast service.

    Downtown hotel. Pulled up next to the hotel. Went inside looking for the valet guy. There is no valet parking here. You have to park your car in a very small, hard-to-maneuver parking lot.

    Mid check-in, the receptionist took a phone call and gave me the "finger" to wait a minute. She didn't tell the person on the phone to just hold on for one minute while I get finished checking in. She talked. All 3 minutes while I stood there.

    There is no lounge. That's right. No lounge.

    Went up to the 10th floor, which is for HH members. There was a massive pile of room service items in the hallway stinking up the entire floor.

    I went into my room and was very pleasantly surprised at the layout and the size of the room. A nice living area with a couch and desk w/ ottoman and TV. There was a stainless steel microwave and a stainless steel mini refrigerator with a few cans of soda and some water (complimentary) to make up for the lack of lounge. I got restless and decided to take a walk downtown. Left my room, saw the roomservice pile/mess still sitting in the hallway.

    Came back an hour later from my walk, saw the room service pile/mess still sitting there, stinking up the entire floor, which now smelled like old onions and garlic....

    So, I got a breakfast voucher (again, since there's no lounge. I hate to keep saying this, but it's disappointing for a downtown Hilton property).  I sat down at a table. 10 minutes went by. Nobody came by to greet me or get a drink. So, I got up and went to the buffet to serve myself. On my way back, I finally saw a server and asked for coffee.  Sat back down and started eating my breakfast. Cold eggs. Burnt bacon. Overcooked sausage (is that possible?). Coffee came, so I asked for cream. 10 minutes went by and still no creamer.  I saw another server and asked her for creamer. She turned to the table next to me where a customer just got up and left. There was an open container of cream. The server grabbed it off of the table and brought it to me. GROSS. Open container. The customer could have spit in it. sneezed over it. Coughed in it. WTF. I got up and left.

    The end.

    I love Hilton but I am going to have to do this.  I checked into my room and lifted the toliet seat cover and found a present in there.  It kind of grossed me out that the maid didn't clean this...what else didn't she clean?...maybe my sheets or the towels?

    I called down to inform them and they told me they were going to send up keys in 10 minutes for a new room.  After 15 minutes I called (I had to get to work) and the phone rang 30 times...I am not kidding...see they have caller id (down there) and knew it was me...so I put it on speaker and just let it ring.  The guy at front desk finally picked up and said my new keys were on there way.  He bought himself some more time...I had to wait 20 minutes even though I was told it would be 10 minutes from the beginning.

    So I get to my new room and the bathroom smells of urine.  You know that homeless smell. I turned my  fan on in there to suck it out...closed the door to the bathroom and went to work.  In 16 years of business travel...this is a first for me...switching rooms because of a dirty toliet and the second room also being bad too.  I think that the maid who brought me my new keys went down to the new room and cleaned the bathroom with a dirty rag.  I should have just stayed in the first room

    The hotel also seems to be under renovation too.  The lobby is in the restaurant in front of a couple of booths.  It is kind of funny.  It is like a maze to get around...you may want to avoid it here until it has been fixed up.

    The only positive is the gym is nice here.  

    I do not know if I would stay here again.  This place is not to the standard I am use to when it comes to a Hilton Hotel. I hope they figure it out and make improvements.

    1.5 stars for location. The proximity to restaurants and business events was desirable., which was why I booked the hotel.

    - Housekeeping did not service my room. No bed making, towel replacing, room service cup clearing for me! Got back after being gone all day at meetings and was disappointed that my room had not been serviced at all. Staff was nice enough about it and brought me towels when I called down asking why,  but what good did that do me?

    I could excuse it at a cheaper hotel, but at a Hilton, and at this price point, it's pretty disappointing.

    I would expect more from a Hilton hotel.

    We were in town for a wedding and stayed a Friday and Saturday night and loved our stay here. Fresh, warm cookies on check-in? Win. Our room was excellent and huge; a steal for what we paid via Priceline. We did request no maid service on Saturday, so I can't speak to the timeliness of it, but our room was very clean when we checked in. The location of this DoubleTree is pretty awesome. We were able to walk to a lot of neat restaurants and bars that were close by (Brit's Pub, Hell's Kitchen, Crave). My only real tiff would be about the parking lot, but this IS downtown Minneapolis. We were able to find a spot every time, but it was a tight fit and we were extra paranoid having a rental car. There were also a lot of public parking ramps close by, but we figured the rate wouldn't be much cheaper than what the hotel was charging. Would definitely stay here again!

    Don't know what happened to all the folks with the unpleasant reviews / experience, but my stay was pretty pleasant. Got the so called home made cookie upon arrival. Getting or not getting this shouldn't make or break your stay! The suites are pretty newly renovated and are set up with great flow. My room was serviced everyday. Hotel is located conveniently to various restaurants / bars (next door to the Brit for some lawn bowling!) And for all you Starbuck fanatics! They have their own! I will come back and stay again!

    Absolutely one of the best check ins we've ever had, followed by complete customer service for the whole stay.  I can't say enough about Anita Watson, who worked the front desk almost every day we were there, and made a point to come out and shake our hands (and by the end of the trip hugs) and wish us a good day.  She was wonderful!!!  And, thanks for the cookies!!

    If you looking for a nice hotel in downtown Minneapolis, this is the place. It sits right next to Nicolet Mall, which has so many restaurants to choice from. The front desk people are super friendly and ready to give you a chocolate chip cookie. I highly recommend this hotel.

    I was in town for a conference, and since I have Diamond status at Hilton I try and frequent their properties as much as I can.

    I ended up booking a king room, handicapped accessible as that was the only reasonably priced option.  Upon check-in, I was hoping to switch rooms to a regular room, but was informed that they were sold out and no accomodation could be made.  I had called ahead hoping I could switch (I usually have good luck in this regard) but no luck.

    The first night, I realized that my room had some issues.  It was right next to the ice machine so anytime someone went to get ice I heard it.  That occured a few times during the late evening and didn't help my sleep cycle since my bed was less than 10 feet from the ice maker.

    In addition, I had a neighbor who liked to chat at high decibles on his cell phone (while listening to the other party reply on speakerphone).  That didn't help matters.

    The next day, I explained the situation and requested a room change.  They put me on a list and by the end of the day I was moved to a regular room which was much better.

    I can't fault the Doubletree on giving me the room I booked...yet I didn't feel like I was really valued as a frequent traveler with them.

    If you need a large room with working space or want to be centrally located, it's definitely worth a look.  Just be sure not to book a handicap accessible room if you don't need it.

    So much luxury for the price!

    We were staying for a weekend and compared to other hotels in the area DoubleTree on Lasalle had the best rates.  After our group checked in and split up to our respective rooms, I was pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of our accommodations!  One member of our group was even compelled to check with the front desk that they had received the right room for our affordable rate!

    The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, and (very important) the water pressure in the shower was great!  When we come back to Minneapolis, we will plan on staying here.

    People in the hotel were nice, refilled things int he bathroom and were generally quite pleasant. The only oddity was that there was a large liquid (water?) spill in an elevator that was cleaned eventually.

    I'd give the hotel a 3.9.

    Though, I cannot exactly say that everything is nice here, especially at the bar.

    I went there, not realizing that Starbucks was closed (as we were walking from the other way.) I asked one of the guys in the bar whether it was open and he noted rather gruffly that it was closed. I got a soda from them with the guy taking ages to get the drink and even longer for me to go pay for it. It was also 3.27 for a can of Ginger Ale served by a guy who was not nice or enjoyable.

    I'd give the bar a .8.

    While this property is in a a great location across the street from Target's Corporate offices there are much better choices in dt mini. The standard rooms are good size and have an extra gold out bed with two TV's they are dated and in need of a refresh. The stag is ok and they don't seem to go out of their way at the front desk to make you feel welcome as some other local properties pride themselves on. You have to pay for Internet unless you are at a certain level in their loyalty program which I don't feel obligated to chase with so many other options. The gym is small and the equipment does the trick but is probably at least 10-15 years old.

    I was pretty happy with our stay here. The suites were a nice touch, every room has more than enough space.

    We used our points to book the hotel and tried to swap rooms for a King but they were sold out. It seems like that happens in other reviews as well. Not sure if that's the case or they are stingy.

    You can tell this is an older hotel that has been updated recently. It is nice, but our A/C wasn't really pulling its weight. We talked to the front desk and they would have moved us to another room (which I found odd because they said they were sold out) but the maintenance guy said all the units are pretty similar. Nothing worse than sleeping in the heat.

    The next day we woke up a little late and barely made it down for breakfast. They were gracious enough to let us fill a plate before they took the food away. Great customer service in the restaurant.

    A small concern. We stayed here after the Twin's game and I wouldn't recommend that walk home: Take a cab!

    I have stayed here a couple of times now and have always had a good experience here. It is nicely renovated and updated and you can't go wrong with those cookies when you check on. Rooms are spacious and staff is always helpful and friendly.

    It's a great hotel if you want to stay downtown Minneapolis but don't want to stay right in the middle of it. It is located right next to Brit's pub, easy access to 394 and 94. Only a block away from Target too if you need to pick anything up

    Overall, not a bad spot in a good location of downtown. All the rooms are suites which is nice. Some presentation pieces could use work, the towels weren't soft and I found a big hair on my bath towel, that's never fun. Bed was soft and comfortable. Amenities a little outdated and the bathroom was pretty small and basic. TV a little small for being far from the bed. Parking is expensive at the hotel, so try to find a spot on the street. They have warm cookies behind the front desk, just have to ask.
