    I would definitely stay here if I needed a hotel in the Twin Cities.  Having worked events here they have a great property.  The restaurant and bar are fantastic, the parking is super convenient and the decor is beautiful!

    The hotel is in a great location and sure seems nice at first. But the room was cramped and unimpressive, and we heard every word of our neighbors' normal conversations. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but room service options (and times of availability) were limited.

    i was spoiled by my first business trip, when i was put up in a fancy new hotel with rooms larger than my apartment and flat screen tv's in the bathrooms.

    the millennium is... fine.  it's average.  it's not bug infested or anything, the linens are clean, and it's in a nice area of downtown minneapolis.  i think its location is actually the best thing about it, since it's at one end of nicollet mall and that's a pleasant walk for dinner, shopping, or just wandering around.  but the hotel seems to want to be fancier than it is -- the lobby is a bit swanky, but nothing else is.  the rooms are average, the "fitness center" is seriously lacking (two treadmills, one stairmaster, and a couple of weight machines), and what's up with no free wireless??  minus many points for that.

    also, the woman who checked me in coulda been A LOT friendlier.

    if i ever find myself in minneapolis again, i will definitely be staying in another hotel.

    The Millenium is a hotel chain out of the UK, and this one is located in the heart of Downtown Minneapolis, across from the Hyatt Hotel and near Nicolet Mall. Although a decent hotel, it seems a little bit tired and long in the tooth compared to other properties. The rates are usually more reasonable than the Hyatt. They do have a deal with the Hyatt that you can go across and use the In Shape full floor gym that Hyatt took over and beautifully remodeled. There aren't that many Milleniums in the US, and their Frequent Guest program isn't that great, so if you have a choice, try the Hyatt instead. Its nicer, newer, and has better amenities and loyalty programs.

    Last weekend me and 3 friends grabbed a room at the Millennium for only $69 for 2 double beds. It was a great deal for 4 people to stay in downtown for a night of drinking and dancing. We hung out pre-bar and drank wine and felt like we were back at the dorms.  Had brought suites to try out the pool but never made it due to late night and older people's slow recovery that morning. :-)

    The only downside was the rude wait staff at the restaurant. One of the girls woke up really hung over. I popped out to the gift shop to buy some aspirin and other hangover necessities. They did not carry crackers. So I went to the restaurant to grab some but....so I had to go down to the restaurant.  I went over the restaurant and stepped inside. There were only 2 tables of costumers at the time. There were 2 servers one woman and a man- the woman took 1 look at me and turned her back on me. The gentleman stood by the table he was cleaning up and after a moment motioned for me to sit down at the nearby table. I tried to motion him to come near me. The woman with her back to me said to him, "She is NOT wearing shoes." I tried to tell her what I really needed. Then another woman came from the back and approached me. I asked her for some crackers. She went back and got them and a can of sprite. She seemed to e hiding the sprite can. She asked me if I had a sick friend. I replied I did but I did not need the Sprite. But thanks. She gave me a coffee cup filled with saltines. Again she seemed to have to hide them.
    I was in my pajamas without shoes so I can see why at first they didn't 'respect me'. Yet they don't know who I am and what I MIGHT bring to the business. Which I would NOT eat there now after that. So the first woman was VERY rude and cost them business yet other woman was very gracious and kind. Maybe she shouldn't give away crackers and pop but I truly did NEED them and the store didn't sell it.  It was a bit weird.
    So I don't think I would recommend them for a catering event but it was a great price for the  location.

    you can tell this is a pretty inexpensive hotel to be downtown because the toliet runs, the lampshade is crooked and dented and most of the furniture is butt-ugly.  highlights are the amount of frosted glass all over the hotel (I really like green frosted glass!) and a overall pretty comfy bed.  downsides include room service that stops at 10pm and doesn't serve alcohol and the weak $8 gin & tonics at the bar.  oh yeah - did I mention the ugliest sofa on the planet?!?  no joke

    one more plus - if you like to bar hop there are several within walking distance

    Was in town for the MNF Game of the Century (go Brett Favre!), solo, and lucked into this hotel right on Nicollet Mall. Super friendly and helpful staff.. answered every stupid question I had and even pointed me in the direction of where to get poster making supplies. Very conveniently located, took the light rail from the airport to the Nicollet Mall stop, then chose to walk the several blocks down to the hotel, but there are really clean, environmentally friendly (of course!) and frequent buses that run constantly up and down this pedestrian mall and I took one later to get back to the train for the game. They let me check in early, which was so awesome, and I got a king with a wonderful comforter. The room was just the right size, with a window that opens (!!), which was so nice on a cool and rainy day, and I chillaxed with movies on the giant tv. The rooms could use a little updating, but very clean and I loved the super plush big towels, the comforter, and the curtains:) They helped me set up a shuttle back to the airport, which was also great. Busy nightlife at the bar downstairs, business center available if you need it (I didn't), room service.. lots of amenities. Great location. Plus, considering the sports fans here, it was very quiet. Love the elevators:) I would def stay here again.

    A hotel that wants to be a W hotel, yet fails.  The decor is ubber modern in thanks to it's ikea furnishing.  Millennium is a complete hike to where you want to find yourself on a Friday or Saturday night.  Landed here when I decided to give hotels.com a spin on their four star downtown mpls listing.  They screwed up our two night reservation, so at the end of the stay we got their top suite.  Slate or faux slate bathroom with the 5 dollar hair dryer from walmart.  

    People.. the details are a dead giveaway.

    We stayed at the Millenium Hotel 5/10/12 and 5/11/12.  I was concerned about the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by the experience.  Check-in and check-out were effortless.  The room was more than adequate, with a comfortable king bed and complimentary mini-fridge.  No problems with the bathroom.  The bar was stylish, the bartenders were very accommodating and friendly.  The location is convenient.  We stayed at the Hyatt and Foshay previously.  I would not hesitate to stay at the Millenium again.

    If I were not here for a conference and this were not the conference hotel, I would have checked out immediately. Dirty room. poor A/C (The Thermostat instructions actually advise to open the window instead). The room smells terrible. And a bad part of town. I wish I didn't have to be here for 4 days.

    I attended a professional conference held in the hotel and stayed here for 3 nights.  Seemed to be in a nice area of downtown, blocks from the convention center and metrodome with plenty of other things to do in the area, though admittedly I didn't get too much of an opportunity to explore.  For $13 each way, I took the Super Shuttle from the airport and it only took about a half hour, so that worked out well.  But unfortunately, it seems like this downtown is no different from lots of other medium sized cities - I arrived around 7:30 on Sunday and everything in sight was closed.  I wanted to pick up a bottle of soda and some chips to supress my appetite and had to go to the convenience store in the gas station a block or two away, and had to pass 4 or 5 beggers.  To be fair, they were perhaps the most polite beggers I've ever encountered.

    The staff of the hotel were all very courteous and helpful, so kudos to that.  However the rooms themselves were very old with cracking/stained porcelain in the bathrooms.  The "fitness studio" was just that - only two treadmills and a set of weights.  And I'm never pleased to have to pay for internet ($9.95/day), even if it is a "business expense" that I get reimbursed for, I just feel like the hotel is taking advantage of your situation.

    As part of the conference we had a reception the first night on the top floor with hors doeuvres and a bar, and the next day we had a lunch set up on the lower level.  The food was decent enough both times, nothing spectacular but not inediable.

    One night I had to put in double-time and was working hard on my laptop from my room, so I ordered room service for dinner.  It was reasonably priced, but it came on a tray and not a rolling table like you often get at nicer hotels.  This normally wouldn't be a problem except for one detail - the only place to eat in the room was the one office desk on which I was trying to do my work on my laptop.  So it kind of backfired - instead of being able to eat and work, I had to pack up everything so that I could have a place to eat.

    So all in all a decent place, but I wonder if the Hyatt across the street wouldn't have been better.

    I was here week before last, where I hosted an event for 32 customers in the MidWest.

    The property continually disappointed in almost every facet.
    - reports of bad experiences at check in
    - Internet service was horrid, and Help desk completely gave ignorant advice (very bad to an audience of Telcos)
    - the catered F&B (food and beverage) was ridiculously priced, scant, and shitty quality. I understand this is a profit center, but 500%? The hosted happy hour on site (mistake) cost us a fortune, for crap.
    - despite being the host, no one ever took the time to greet or assure me of the events we were holding. I sent an email advising the next time someone brings you 90 nights of business, you may want to provide them something more then a standard room with a view of the roof. They later comped my room.
    - there was jackhammering for two days from 8-4 that we weren't advised of, interrupting the conference speakers repeatedly.

    I will say the staff was mostly courteous, outside of some complaints of check-ins.

    For normal business travel its probably ok. The rooms are so so at best, but the location is good.

    I am hosting another event in a few weeks in Raleigh-Durham in 2 weeks, and the Millennium there was removed from our consideration list.

    We went on a freakin awesome dinner cruise of the lochs, a mini Panama canal on the Mississippi, that if I can find time, I will review.

    Before I moved to the Twin Cities, I traveled there occasionally and would generally bid for rooms on Priceline or Hotwire or look for a Travelocity or Orbitz package.

    I bid for one such package during the summer of 2008 and stayed at the Millenium for a 3 or 4 day weekend. I wasn't renting a car on that particular stay so I liked its proximity to shops and restaurants on Nicollet (Mall) Avenue.

    But I remember thinking it seemed run down and lacklaster compared to say the Radisson or the Crown Plaza.

    Staying there again for a night this winter, I felt like there was an improvement. My accomodations were clean and relatively spacious and it was certainly worth the $50 last-minute price found on Priceline. A good value.

    This was a nice hotel when it was the Regal...which was in like 1991.

    Millenium hasn't bothered to upgrade it since obviously. It can be kicked up a star if you get it for $40 a night off priceline and the staff are always VERY nice. But upgrades are sorely needed or they should lower their regular rack rate immensely until they can fix it up. I think I heard some remodeling noise last time I was here in April.

    The Martini Bar is probably it's only saving grace along with the Nicollet Mall/Loring location.

    Disappointed!! This hotel is too pricey and of poor quality. The room and everything in it is old and worn out. You don't expect this, especially at a $189 per night rate. For the same rate, you can stay at Hilton!! The bed is comfortable though and that's the only good thing about the room!

    Complete disappointment. We walked into a somewhat charming lobby, and decent looking bar. As we walked into our room We were very surprised to find a VERY outdated decor. It was a cooler spring night and we could not get the heat to work (it was less then 40 outside) We called the front desk to ask for help with turning on heat...There reply was that the had turned OFF heat to the building because it was foretasted to be "nice out" (It is MARCH in MINNESOTA!!). They offered to bring up an extra blanket!- For real, so for me to be warm during the day???? There are holes in the bathroom wall. Chewed GUM on the nightstand that was stuck to the clock. Black hairs all over the bathroom floor in in shower (my friend and I are both Blond/ red heads...not from us!) This was a very disappointing purchase. I would never stay here again.

    I stayed here recently and was completely disappointed.  There were several of us staying in separate rooms over a 4 day period.  The staff was completely misinformed about most things.  I made several requests and all were denied only to discover that 2 of my same  requests were made by my friends and they WERE accommodated.  

    Do not be fooled by the fancy website...this place is old and dirty.  My shower had something splattered in it that the maid didn't bother to clean!

    Hotel food is always over priced, but at least it's edible in most places.  I found the food here to be awful!

    I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE!

    Nice rooms, the engineer came quickly to fix our shower problem, the beds have pillow top mattresses!  We had a 2 double bed non-smoking room for about $114, parking was $15.  They have a gym and sdauna which I didn't get to use, but they looked nice.  the hotel bar "martini" had delicious dirty martinis.  The location is excellent and a perfect walk to all downtonw attractions! They also had free Wi-Fi!

    Really small rooms with outdated equipment and partially broken blinds.  Loud hallways as the doors close very loud.  The map that the front desk gave us is outdated with three businesses listed that are now closed.  Not the greatest neighborhood.  We will never stay there again nor would ever use Priceline in Downtown Minneapolis for fear of being sent there again.

    Avoid this place. At first glance this hotel appears to be up scale but rooms barely rival a Super 8 at best with expensive rates. Rooms air unit(s) were unable to keep rooms cool and upon kindly requesting a resolution we were informed we could open the room window...to an 80 degree outside. DON'T stay here.

    I give The Millennium a solid three stars. It wasn't as nice as I expected, but it was adequate.

    Pros:
    - The rooms were clean, and had crisp white linens. No ugly printed bedspreads, they actually have soft, warm, white comforters.
    - They have a pool, which was heated and had a deep end. Yes, you could actually SWIM in this pool! There was also a nice sauna.
    - front desk staff were very nice, even in the face of a HUGE crows of Twins fans and wedding guests.
    - The location is great. We only had to walk a block to get to a variety of good restaurants, and only three blocks to get to Target.
    - The price was outstanding. We got a good deal through Hotwire, $60/night, which is 40% of the regular price.

    Cons:
    - TWINS FANS. Jesus, the Twins fans. The hotel was packed with families and their noisy children. Not even ten minutes after getting to our room, we had to listen to young children yell and scream and run and cry right outside our door. Thankfully they shut up fairly quickly. It isn't the hotels fault, but man...the sound of screaming children definitely put a damper on things.
    - The pool is tiny, there are no locker rooms, and no hot tub. Booooo.
    - The rooms were clean, but outdated. No safe or mini-fridge, the toiletries were generic, and the bathrooms were tiny. The A/C was ANCIENT and barely kept the room cool.
    - The adjacent apartment building had the most obnoxious cooling system ever. Every ten minutes, there was the sound of a spaceship taking off. Wait, no, it was just the f*$%ing cooling system next door. Every ten minutes, guys. All day and all night. The noise was so bad we couldn't keep the window open, which led to two broiling hot nights of very little sleep. Again, not really the hotel's fault, but they could upgrade their A/C, so we don't have to worry about it.
    - Parking was expensive. We paid $32 for two nights, which over half the cost of the room for one night! At least they give you a voucher so you can come and go as much as you want.

    I'm satisfied with what we got for the price we paid, but I probably won't stay here again unless we get another really good discount

    It has been some years - so take me with a grain of salt.
    This hotel was just ok. It seems like it would be a little more high-end of an experience, but it was just alright.
    The bar seemed very unpopular. The room was pretty standard.
    The neighborhood is great. Really, the best part of the hotel.

    The location of the hotel is great.  It is within walking distance of the convention center, shopping and dining.  

    The room was in desperate need of an update and could have used a good, deep clean. The thermostat had only two settings that worked.. blast furnace hot and off.

    I stayed at the hotel for a conference and the room and my client booked the room for me. If I were paying for the room myself, I would probably book elsewhere.

    Don't let the lobby fool you

    I stayed here with my bro for the navy's weekend warrior workshop. When we first arrived we were booked for a single bed which would have been fine had we been like the rest of the "couples" attending but we were brother and sister so it just wouldn't fly. We went downstairs, said our plight and were given a room with 2 beds no problem. This is pretty much were the awesome ended. Walking in the lobby you'd think you were staying in an amazing hotel. Sadly that experience ended once you exited the elevator to your room. The rooms were bad for the star level. Even motel 6 has a mini fridge but not this place. Motel 6 also has blood stains/pubes in the bathroom, this is where they were on par with motel 6.   The A/C was hard to understand, and the toilets were clogged.  The amount you pay for parking and wifi is outrageous. The location was nice

    We purchased a standard room through Hotwire.com for $60/night. For the price we found it to be very accommodating. The hotel is located next to shopping and eat street featuring a variety of cuisines. The staff was helpful and we were able to store our bags after checkout on our last day. Parking was convenient, $16 per day which is average for downtown hotel parking. This wasn't the best hotel I've ever stayed in but for the price (comparable to an ecolodge) is say it was a steal! Bring your own hair dryer!

    NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL!  I have never stayed in a more disgusting hotel ever.  I requested a room change because the first room smelled like cats and urine.  This was the first time ever that I have requested a room change.  There was hair all over the bathroom.  The heating/air system is from the 1970s or older and covered with filth (I honestly feared for my health because of the scum on the heater).  We opened a window in the second "renovated" room because of the stench.  The chair was stained and the bathroom vanity was cracked glass.  This place is a joke.  This was the first time ever I have been completely disgusted with a reservation from Priceline.com .

    The lobby is nice, but the rooms are totally ghetto. Lots of really little things earn this place a 2 star rating: tiny rooms barely big enough for 1 person to be comfortable, poorly patched wallpaper, really old appliances, only one plug in the bathroom, $9.99/day WiFi, rooms aren't very clean, no refrigerator in the rooms, a "fitness" center with 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals and a weight bench, etc.

    Pros: The bed was comfy and it's close to where I needed to be. Plus I paid $75/night on Hotwire, so it was "worth" it, but certainly not worth the full room rates.

    It's a small step up from a Super 8, but not even as nice as a Holiday Inn.

    Hotwire has this hotel rated at 3.5.  Very disappointed in there rating.  Must have been bought.  This place is 2 stars at best.  And that's because of the Lobby and staff.  Beautiful lobby, and extremely friendly staff.  The room... hmmmmm... circa 1980 and I don't mean they have whole retro decor happening.  This hotel hasn't been upgraded since 1980.  EXCEPT, for the beds.  It was very comfortable.  The rest of it, well it was not so good.

    I have stayed in much worse.  The point of this is more to say Hotwire missed this one with 3.5 stars.  I assume 3.5 stars on Hotwire is a very nice hotel.  That is not the case.

    If you need to be downtown in Minneapolis and you can get a good rate at this hotel it will do.  But there are Holiday Inn's close by...  Just a thought...  

    Oh, they charge for internet access as well...  

    And, the parking garage that is attached to the hotel doesn't take credit cards.  REALLY, no credit cards.  $17.00 overnight parking charge.  

    But the bed is comfortable...  :)  Stay somewhere else!!!

    I stayed here for a wedding and had a very good experience overall.

    Best part: water pressure in the shower.  I take my shower pressure very seriously and typically avoid washing my hair in hotels because they are usually bad.  Not here.  This shower is in my top 5 showers of all time.  Serious.

    Worst part: cater-waiters and bartenders at the two hotel functions I attended (wedding and morning-after brunch).  This may be a vendor issue, not the hotel per se, so I'll leave it at "lame."

    Otherwise, a good experience with the staff, and the rooms, ballroom, domed reception area on the top floor (cheesy carpet notwithstanding) were all good too.

    The Millennium Hotel chain has an excellent reputation and the Millennium Hotel Minneapolis website made it look like the hotel was up to the standards set in other cities.  However, I found the room was small, and dated decor and wifi was free only in the lobby and restaurant.  I've stayed in Best Westerns with free wifi.

    Biggest complaint was the climate control of room.  Ancient and unreliable I ended up opening the window to keep from being completely roasted.

    We drove to Minnesota to see the Twins vs Tigers game yesterday and this was the hotel my Uncle selected.

    The beds were reaaaaal nice, the rooms could use an overhaul.

    The hotel was very clean and the bartender and staff were very nice but the bums in front of the joint were brutal, clean that shiiiiit up!!!

    Wifi wasant free, bad.  They nickel and dime you for everything here.  -2 stars.

    Stayed here for on a Saturday for one night in April 2011. Booked the room on Priceline, because we were going to be downtown for a party and didn't want to have to drive back out to the West Metro.

    The room was nice, and had nice/comfortable beds. The bathroom was  old though, and left a lot to be desired.

    The Pool was in the basement and it felt like we were in a parking garage. It looks like it was probably an afterthought to add the pool after the hotel was established. Being a corporate hotel though, we didn't expect too much out of the pool.

    I booked this room cheaply, but had I paid anything close to $100 I would have been disappointed. Parking is $15.

    Yeah, the lobby is passable, but the hotel is a disaster.  The rooms are just plane gross and the bathrooms are way outdated.  Drunk jerks are running up and down the hallways all night.  The front staff could care less about your needs/concerns.  This is more 2 star that 3.5 star.  And parking, they pimp that lot out with no regard for people who have prepaid.  You get back at 11pm and the lot is full tough luck.  STAY AWAY.  
    Also $10 a day wifi?

    I'll be the first to say it - I'm a picky person by nature.  So imagine how fun it was when trying to look for a wedding venue in the Twin Cities that (1) was within my limited paying-for-this-ourselves budget, (2) looked respectable and like a true ballroom, and (3) held more than five people at once.  

    Cue, the Millenium hotel.

    From the moment we met Jessica, the catering director and resident wedding organizer, I knew we had found something special.  She patiently showed us around each and every ballroom they had, answered all of our questions, and was unfailingly gracious and helpful even after learning about our limited budget (unlike some venues... *cough* D'Amico's *cough*).     She even, after learning that the food was extremely important to me (hey, a girl likes to eat!), set up a personal meeting with the chef and allowed us to buy two entrees off of the special wedding menu to pre-try before signing any contract with the hotel.  

    Holy cow, the two entrees were delicious (Filet Mignon and Chicken Ballentine).  

    Even better, one day before my fiancee and I were scheduled to drop off our signed contract (with the $8,500 minimum agreement) to the hotel, I received a postcard in the mail from the Millenium offering to waive the minimum, via MN Brides.   Most places would have refused to honor the mailing since they knew that we were already planning on going with the hotel.  But Jessica and the hotel gladly honored it, revised the contract, and sent me a new copy within ten minutes.  TEN MINUTES!  

    I can't speak highly enough of the Millenium.  I'll revise my review as the wedding gets closer (and afterward) but I highly encourage anyone looking for an event space to look at this hotel and come talk to Jessica.   I couldn't be happier with my choice, and in a city full of places that only treat you as a dollar sign, this hotel stands out as warm, friendly, and worth every penny!

    Very nice hotel. Rooms are smaller, but sufficient, clean and modern. The two criticisms I have are:
    1) It was very difficult to get someone on the phone when calling the hotel. I have no idea why it was that way, but on some occasions (during business hours) I simply gave up after 2 minutes of ringing...
    2) In this day and age, free wifi is to be expected. Charging people $10 a day per device is ludicrous.
    Because of both of these, I'm generous with 3 stars.

    Guy in elevator after I just checked in and was headed up to my room after a long night of travel with delayed flights: "Have you stayed here before?"

    Me: "No, just checking in now."

    Guy in elevator: "You'd think the rooms would be nice from the look of the lobby....that's not the case. Oh, and wait till you see the bathroom..."

    This was my first impression of the Millennium Hotel. Some random guy who hated his room so bad, he felt the need to share with me, a complete stranger. I will say I also got a "this is nice ass hotel" feel from the lobby and bar scene. But alas, as I made my way to my room, I was saddened by the old and rundown look of the room, not to mention the terrible lighting. And yes, the bathroom....just so out of date. Not dirty, just out of date.

    I should also disclose I was here for a work trip, and wasn't paying the bill. If I had been paying the bill, I would have been pretty upset. The room rate was $150 a night, (and that was with a company discount, so I am guessing normal rates are more) and the beds just didn't warrant that. I think that is the most important part of a hotel room...the bed. I was in a room with 2 queens, and both were terribly uncomfortable. And then there was the air conditioning....loud and useless. My room was so hot the whole time I was there (5 flippen nights). The toiletries were awful and smelled bad. The TV was straight out of 1995. The cable line up sheet did not match up with the actual channels. No free wi-fi, and when you did pay the $10 a day rate, it was so slow and not worth the trouble.  All of these things are pretty minor, but add them up, and it leaves you with a bad experience.

    I will say that this hotel had a great location...right on Nicolett Mall. Walking distance to everything, and this being my first time to Minneapolis, that was awesome (I have to give a shot out to this awesome city...love, love, love it!). I guess they are charging for the location. The restaurant was also decent (3 stars) and the staff were all very friendly and attentive (they get 5 stars).

    Overall, for the location, I guess the price is ok. But Millennium, please update your rooms from 1972 and bring them into the 2000's. Your city deserves it!

    What a shame, the rooms are great but they charged me more than my reservation e-mail had indicated and I had to "fight" to get it adjusted and then they charged me $100 for leaving a night earlier than I had planned.  The restaurant is a disaster, SLOOOOW service in the morning and not very good food.  Had a sliced prime rib sandwich one evening and it wouldn't have made the garbage bucket at Arby's.

    I had a nice, clean room. Decor is modern and cozy. Comfy bed. I had a much later check-in than anticipated due to nightmare traffic. When I called to inform them of my delay the gal on the phone was sweet and told me of a phone app to gauge traffic. Was nice. I'd stay again. Close to yummy food and places to go out.

    Great experience! It was worth the few extra bucks to upgrade to the "Superior" room. Free apps, breakfast, and access to the Club Lounge. Lounge had printer and free soda.

    Let's get the bad news over with first. There's no free wi-fi, you have to pay to park, & no free breakfast. But who cares about that! Look around you!!!! You're in one of the most beautiful, pedestrian friendly downtowns ever! So, when you get off the plane, don't rent a car. Take the Supershuttle to the hotel. The Millennium is tastefully decorated and has a great layout. The rooms are of ample size and not dark. Nice showers and plenty of space to lay out your clothes / belongings.  There are plenty of great eateries within walking distance you will want to check out. Traffic is almost absent in this area due to restrictions (yea!). This hotel is the perfect place to stay and is way better than other nearby hotels.

    We stayed here for an Irish dancing competition over Thanksgiving. The location of the hotel is good and they waived the internet charge for the group although it is still usually an extra charge. On the day we were leaving, the competition was still going on and we asked if we could have a late check-out. We were told that was against policy. As a result, we had to check out of the room while going back and forth to the convention center which made the morning very stressful. We ended up leaving my daughter's favorite stuffed bunny there and it was never found and she still has trouble sleeping two months later. What made matters worse was that while I was checking out I found they were allowing late check-outs for other guests. I can forgive a lot but I really can't forgive staff who lie to your face, especially when it causes so many problems. I am going to push hard for our dance group not to choose this as their main hotel. I can at least make sure we don't stay there again.

    I am not so lucky with hotels lately.
    Okay. Front desk on checkin was efficient. Rooms are clean, but very small. The lobby area is actually very nice and bar & restaurant service was very friendly and efficient.
    The problems:
    --- In three nights engineering could not fix a sink that drained way too slow.
    --- The noise level in the room made resting all but impossible. A constant humming from the airconditioner and other equipment was unbearable.

    There must be better hotels around.

    Hotel rooms are nice and big!  Seemed to be recently remodeled!  It's a in a great location!

    Front desk was ok!  Nothing stood out about them!

    Knocked 2 stars off because they had construction going on at 10am!  Which would have been fine if we would have been notified!

    Lastly hate that they charge for wifi!!

    This hotel is averaging 2.5 stars in ratings, and that is spot-on.
    The room was relatively small for the area. Wifi was 10 dollars/day.

    Upon finding my room, I saw the door was slightly open because the lock/chain was in the door. Very odd. Then shortly after settling in, the housekeeping staff barged in without knocking, not once, but twice within about a 20 minute time period. I sat to do some work and realized it was very cold in the room. I had maintenance come, and he had to 'reset' the system and kindly showed me how it worked. He even stopped by a 2nd time to make sure to tell me how to turn it off. He must have known something I didn't know.

    At about 3 AM I awoke and realized the room was becoming uncomfortably warm. So I turned off the heating system, as instructed. When I woke around 7, the room was 89 degrees and I was sweating. The temperature control does not work, and the 2nd maintenance person told me they have trouble with a lot of the rooms.

    The door to the bathroom didn't stay shut, there were a few pieces of trash left by previous clients which were not cleaned by housekeeping, and the elevators are old, small, and slow.

    Some hotels are a pleasure to stay at and make you feel like you're on vacation, even if you are traveling for work. This is not one of them.
    A very uncomfortable stay and will avoid returning if at all possible.

    REALLY small rooms.  No space for a comfortable chair, only one "desk" type chair.  Garbage left in room from prior customer.  Pod-type coffee maker in room, but no coffee and no coffee cups.  Wi-Fi is $10/day.  Unsafe sliding-type door to the bathroom that doesn't lock and would be dangerous for little kids' fingers.  No fan in bathroom.  Room was always freezing.  One thin blanket on bed.  Beds are ok.  Lobby area and bar/dining area are also always cold.  Had to check out a day early, no refund or partial refund, not happy.  Would not stay here again.

    Negligent hotel that won't take responsibility for their lack of cleaning their facilities. They blame everything on guests, charge outrageous amounts for parking, and customer service is absolutely poor. Jamie is good, but Debbie is the woman in control and refuses to give out insurance information.

    I only stayed here for a wedding, and, had I found a better deal further away, I would've taken it.  The bed was comfortable enough, but that's where the compliments end. The walls need some upkeep; the bathroom water had a permanent yellowish tinge to it, there were 2 random switches in my room that didn't do anything, a make-up/shaving mirror in the bathroom was half broken, the ceiling in the bathroom scared me a bit.

    The service was alright for what it was, but I definitely wouldn't have used my in-and-out pass for the ramp; it was always packed and when we came back to the hotel by 9:30 it was full and closed.

    I attended a conference at this hotel, so I experienced everything from the quality of the rooms to their meeting facilities. The food was top notch, I appreciated the presentation of the different dishes I tried and thought the service was very attentive and conscientious. The rooms were very clean and there was nothing I saw or experienced that questioned their attention to cleanliness and order.

    Ambiance: Modern and well-kept.

    Staff: Front desk staff were great. Professional and efficient.

    Room: The room was nice - clean, an average amount of room and I could not hear my neighbors.

    Location: Great - easy to find.

    Paying for internet at hotels is a pet peeve of mine, which is why I had to knock 1 star off the rating. So many hotels offer free wifi now, it's hard to be accepting of those few who still charge.

    Worst customer service from a manager I have ever seen. Policy is one thing but it should never trump customer service. I will make sure I tell everyone that on my very first visit to Minneapolis I had a rerrible experience with this establishment and I will never recommend anyone stay here. I am a customer service manager in my own profession and what I experienced tonight would make me fire someone.

    DEAR SIR OR MADAM --

    The Millennium is a fine hotel in the heart of downtown Minneapolis with several serious flaws which I will list in no particular order:

    1) My room had no towels.
    B) The coffee is expensive for no particular reason.
    -   Nobody at the hotel bar knows which whiskey is rail.
    4) There are no USB charging plugins in the rooms in 2014
    5) The room service barged in our room in the morning

    The end

    We lucked out with Hot Wire. We snagged a room on the 12th floor at this modern hotel in the middle of downtown Minneapolis.

    The 12th floor might not mean anything to you right now, but it might after this. The 12th floor costs a little more than rooms on other floors, but it has a couple of amenities that compensate the expense. It has free wifi and a private lounge. The private lounge has a large television, comfortable chairs and couches, free Continental breakfast in the morning, and free hot and cold appetizers in the evening. We used the lounge to get unlimited chilled bottled water to stock our room. They have free pop, juice (in the morning), delicious teas, and coffee if you have a taste for more than water.

    We brought our bikes to Millennium Hotel and kept them in our room. The hotel staff never blinked an eye when we pushed our bikes through the lobby and up and down the elevator. Furthermore, the hotel was conveniently located across the street from the Loring Greenway (a bike path). We walked easily to bars, restaurants, and Target.

    Besides biking around the city, we brought our car. The hotel staff explained that we could park in the hotel garage for $18/day with in and out privileges. We were also given a map of the area around the hotel and another garage was circled for us that was supposed to be $9/night with no in and out privileges. We opted for the cheaper option but discovered that the surrounding garages were $13 instead of $9.

    Our room at Millennium Hotel was a good enough size and kept clean. We had no qualms about how sanitary it was. M loved the bed so much that she was motivated to purchase a new mattress at home because of it. We were also big fans of having a mini fridge in our room. It was discretely located in a large cabinet (no eye sore). I liked the convenient outlets and Frango mints.

    The only glitch (and this is really an example of their excellent service) was that there was a problem with our air conditioning the first night. It was a cool night so it didn't matter so much; however, the hotel did everything they could to accommodate us. They immediately sent a maintenance person to work on the AC and offered us to the ONLY other open room they had available that night. We noticed right away that the alternative room wasn't as good as our original room (it wasn't on the 12th floor) so they brought us THREE fans to help us stay cool in our original room until they could properly fix the AC the next day.

    There's no reason why we wouldn't stay again at Millennium Hotel. They provided wonderful accommodations to us and demonstrated that they did not bend under pressure of swell of business. The night that we arrived was a HUGE Shriners convention and they were booked solid. Later, when we left, they were slammed with folks for the All Star Baseball game! Millennium Hotel did great.

    I only stayed here one night and didn't arrive until late so I don't have too much to stay except that it is in a good location near the bars downtown and the club level lounge was very nice! It offers continental breakfast with toast, bagels, english muffins, yogurt and granola, scones, and fresh fruit. You could also have juice, water, pop, or coffee - and there was a fridge of alcohol. It had a great view of the downtown buildings and the attendant was very friendly. The space was very nice and looks like updated. The rooms were very nice and updated as well.

    Prices are high, service is not good! Good location.

    Came in on a recent business trip and stayed for 4 nights. The check-in process was an absolutely nightmare. The front desk staff was extremely slow and even though there was only 2 people in line, it still took 20 minutes.

    They also don't change the sheets everyday unless you call and specifically request. The gym is in the basement and has no cell phone reception. WIFI is an extra $10/day, which is totally lame! I also ordered breakfast one day, the omelette was $14, then they added $2.50 for delivery charge and another $3 for service charge, WTF? I've never seen double service fees at any hotel before.

    We also had dinner one night at the hotel and the grilled chicken was disgusting. El Pollo Loco makes better chicken than this place.

    I had a great stay at the Millennium. I came into tthe Twin Cities to watch the R40 concert the staff were really friendly and the service was good. They messed up with our room and didn't give us 2 twin beds.  They fixed this right away and it wasn't a problem. For the money only 100 a night and the location it was great!

    The location is the biggest thing this hotel has going for it. Location alone makes this a good destination in Minneapolis -- right at the end of Nicollet Mall, within walking distance of any number of parks, bars, restaurants, all the fun nightlife Minneapolis has to offer. You can walk just about anywhere from here, and it's super close to public transportation options (as well as the free bus that goes up and down Nicollet -- great perk!)

    We were happy with our room (mostly), which was immaculately clean, and we got a decent deal for our room via an aggregator website. Service was uniformly pleasant and kind. The lobby is beautiful. We had the misfortune of booking our weekend getaway the same weekend as a very noisy conference, but there's nothing the hotel could have done about that.

    The gym is nice. It has a variety of options -- free weights, elliptical, cross trainer, treadmill, weight machines, many of which have tiny TVs on them -- and it was empty every time I was there.

    Downsides:

    - We had the same room-temperature issue others have mentioned. We had to call someone twice to help us with our in-room thermostat, and it still wouldn't work. This made sleeping difficult, despite the comfy bed (it got pretty hot at night.)

    - Parking is $18 a day. That's AFTER the discount. Absurd.

    - They charge $10 a day for wi-fi. What century is this? I deeply resent paying for wi-fi -- especially when, as it was here, it is slow wi-fi.

    We would probably stay again, but I'll definitely find someplace else to park. And the window will be open during the night.
