We stayed here on our wedding night, and when they heard that it was our wedding night they upgraded us to the 20th floor, which had an amazing view of downtown!  The room was very clean and modern and the bed was super comfortable!  The only small problem was that I made the reservation via Travelocity under my name, and I called twice to confirm that it would be ok for my now-husband to check us in with our overnight bags prior to our ceremony even though he wouldn't have the card that I made the reservation under, and twice the front desk told me that that was just fine.  But when he got there, they wouldn't let him check in after all, and I was in the middle of my wedding day hair appointment, and he had to put me on the phone with the front desk person to confirm that it was my reservation.  So that was a little disappointing, but it really was a small thing (and luckily the only hiccup for our entire day!).  We will definitely stay here again though for a nice romantic night away from home!  And hopefully sooner rather than later!

My wife and I decided to stay at this hotel to celebrate her birthday while in Minneapolis. Walking inside the lobby for the first time I was amazed at the decor of the place; it was very upscale. The staff was very nice and courteous to me and promptly escorted us to our room which was a King executive whirlpool on the 19th floor. The room was great and had an amazing view of the Target Center. The bed was super comfortable, TV was nice, and the bathroom looked very stylish. I thought the room would be bigger, but the view and the bed make up for it. There were some minor dents in the wall, plus the weight scale didn't work(idk why it is there). This hotel is in the perfect place downtown, close to everything. The only downside is the parking, which is expensive( I'm not from the city). The staff also gave us some champagne and a very unique gift to celebrate my wife's birthday. I thought that was very nice; we thanked the staff for that gesture. Overall, it was a good experience. I would go back.

Just ordinary. The expensive room we stayed in seemed to have ikea furniture. The view we got was just the upper wall east view of Target Field. Our tv was a smaller one for what we paid for. Parking myself was a major hassle, I recommend just going with valet- it's only a few dollars more after all. The front desk service and bellmen were extremely on top of it however.

Please do not book any important functions at this hotel!!

My friend had her wedding at this Loews in June 2014. All of the wedding guests booked rooms at this hotel as well, we thought it would be fun to be together all weekend as we were all coming from different states. Everything was fine until John Tomars, a manager, was disrespectful and unsavory to the point that the bride was crying and most of the wedding party left the hotel to find other accommodation.  He not only was aggressive but then when we asked to speak to another manager or at least have the name and phone number of a different manager, he began to cry verbal abuse. Sorry John Tomars - asking to speak with someone who is of a higher level than you is not abuse.

I was assured that I would not be charged for the weekend as I did not actually stay at this hotel Friday or Saturday. What I thought was just a poor choice of manager by hiring John Tomars I realized it is much more than that. A week after I returned back home I checked my bank statement. The charge was still there. I called the hotel and spoke to another manager who again assured me that the charges would be cancelled. Great.  A week later I checked to make sure this had been refunded, but of course, the charge was still there! I am now in the process of refuting the claim via my credit card company.

I have stayed at many other Loews locations and this in no way compares to the other sites.

I 100% believe that John Tomars should not be in this business. When another guest was checking out on Sunday he asked how their stay was and when they confronted the situation he again became defensive and made negative comments about us to another guest.

Please, if you want your event to be everything you hoped for, do not have it or have guests stay at the Loews. And if you decide there is no other option, make sure John Tomars is not working during your stay.

I was recently in Minneapolis for leisure and decided I would treat myself to the Loews, a chain that I know to be of high quality. The public spaces are contemporary and clean: wood veneers on every wall and gorgeous stone floors.

The first room I was put in, however, did not match the elegance of the restaurant and lobby. I learned that they are currently renovating the rooms and that this one had yet to be updated. The furniture was worn, the walls had some damage and the carpet was lightly stained. The manager on duty, John, recognized my disappointment and immediately moved me to a slightly better room, though this one had a faulty shower. By now I was feeling like a real nuisance, but  the next manager on duty, Whitney, thoughtfully made an appointment for me to get my hair washed at the salon and assured me that she could move me to a newly-renovated room the next day.

Wow! It was gorgeous!! No detail was spared and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of my vacation. So what I learned was this: try to get yourself a renovated room. If that's not possible, the staff will be courteous in making sure you're satisfied, but I fear there may be minor annoyances until the renovations are complete.

Bravo to the whole staff for excellent attention to service!

On my very first week with my new company, I was fortunate enough to be put up in the former Graves hotel, now called the Loews. I've stayed at a former property before in Las Vegas and was definitely excited to see what this one had to offer.

Let's first start off with the location. It's on the corner of 7th and 1st in Downtown Minneapolis. This hotel sits conveniently between the popular Target Center and the City Center building, which just so happens to be one of the buildings in my new company. Loews conveniently has a Starbuck's shop adjacent to the front desk and a lovely restaurant on the 4th floor.

When I arrived for checking, the porter took my bag as I was paying my cab and disappeared. When I eventually caught up, my bag was waiting for me at the front desk, where the agent already had my room key ready and waiting. Talk about service! After a quick elevator ride and elevator change on the 4th floor (which I thought was a bit odd but I didn't mind), I was at my room.

HOLY MOLY, what an amazing room! Hard wood floors, king size bed, full length mirrors and large windows opening up to the city. I was in awe. This room was on point. There was a nice scent as you walk into the room which was an awesome detail. Lots of storage space for your clothes and two closets if needed. There was also a living room area for extra seating. Now comes the best part, the bathroom. First off, there's an extra tv in the bathroom if you find yourself sitting for a while. Then the shower. OH-EM-GEE, by far THE BEST part of the room. There were literally 6 shower heads coming at all different directions. I did not want to get out! I find myself loving some sort of detail from the past luxury hotels I've stayed at and for Loews, it was the shower.

Listen, if you find yourself in Minneapolis, you have got to stay at Loews and don't forget to ask them for a room with the shower heads. You will be in absolute awe. Loews, thank you so much for the amazing stay. I can't wait to come back!

So I'm a frequent business traveler and it's hard for a hotel to impress me. That said, I absolutely love this hotel. I've had the pleasure of staying here each time I visit Minneapolis (including when it was the Graves 601) and can't imagine staying anywhere else in this city. The service is impeccable and the rooms are modern with a sleek but comfortable design. The upgraded rooms with the shower heads are AMAZING and not to be missed.

I'm also quite fond of Cosmos, the lounge/bar on the 4th floor featuring an excellent wine selection and tasty treats.

Book it. Today.

Hotel has a beautiful lobby, a Starbucks, a nice-looking modern bar (Cosmos), a small convenience store - which are great amenities for a traveler. The rooms are lacking though. The room I stayed in was a little beat-up, and was in need of an upgrade. Like another reviewer said, it felt like IKEA furniture. The desk chair had a small hole in it, the desktop had what appeared to be water damage - the wood was rippled, there was water damage around the window sill, there was a stain on the chaise lounge, the rolling coffee table had roughed-up edges and the glass top was loose. The bed was comfortable but the pillows had a slight "used" odor to them. Noticed that you could hear water moving through pipes and the slamming of doors in the hallway, also when the heat kicked on there would be a loud "click". The fridge in the room was well stocked with extremely expensive sodas and nuts. Room service was great, fast, food was delicious (go for a cheeseburger and fries, for breakfast try the lobster egg Benedict). The best part about this room was the bathtub. It's a deep, whirlpool tub with a tv on the wall. I took two long baths throughout my 16 hour stay.
Pros: convenient downtown location, close to light rail, clubs, bars/restaurants. Room service was fast, friendly, delicious. Bathroom whirlpool was amazing.
Cons: this is a busy hotel and the rooms show it. Furniture in rooms is worn out. Expensive for just an OK room.

TV and Phone in the loo!  Who needs that?

On my last stay in Minneapolis, my friend and I booked a room at Loews and it was a really good deal.  I wonder if the construction mess had anything to do with the great rate we got on a room.

So, putting the construction work aside, Loews really was a nice place.

Location is hands down unbeatable.  You're across the street from the Target Center, you've got Starbucks attached to the lobby, the metro stop is a reasonable walk, and most importantly Kieran's is minute walk around the corner.  
Oh, and you can get here via skyways if necessary :)

Service is excellent.  We arrived early and were unable to do early check in - BUT they did hold our bags for us, which made exploring the city much less cumbersome.  Desk and door staff were pleasant.  Someone please tell me if we're supposed to tip the doormen.  They only opened the door for us, and nothing else.  I'm not sure about proper protocol here.

The bar/restaurant seemed overpriced, and we didn't bother with it.  I know it's supposed to be a swanky hotel, BUT....
Like others have commented, there are some things still left to be desired.

For example - the furniture is generally cheap looking.  And dirty.  For a renovated hotel, it seems that there shouldn't be stains on the white chair.  And for that matter, why do you furnish hotel rooms with white furniture.  It's just asking for disaster.

Wifi's a bit spotty if you ask me...

And the shower design in our room left us very perplexed.  No matter how you angled the over-sized showerhead, you still had water spraying onto the bathroom floor, and pooling on the floor mat.  And also - when did it become popular to take showers in the open?  I will reiterate that I prefer as sense of privacy while showering -  a shower curtain perhaps or maybe a wall that isn't see-through...

Ok, those things aside... this is a hotel worthy of the four stars.  Treat yourself with a stay here... and make sure to go over to Kieran's too.  Its proximity is probably the best feature of this hotel!!
