    Very good location. Everyone was very friendly. Ordered drinks at the bar to bring to the room had room service that arrived very promptly and the staff was helpful. The room was very large and we were impressed by the spacious bathroom.

    Absolutely LOVE this hotel! I believe they just renovated because last time I was here, it wasn't really this fancy! I'm not a huge fan of the Radisson brand of hotels, but this one is very nice! VERY nice bar and restaurant located by the lobby, and much cheaper than typical hotels. Food is great, drinks are great. Rooms remind me of being in a European hotel, except with much more comfortable beds! Little things matter to me such as amenities and location...right in the heart of downtown, you can do a little shopping at Macy's right next door. I forgot my cellphone charger at home and the the alarm clock is an iPhone 5 charging dock! They also have a nespresso machine rather than the typical gross coffee machine! Not a fan of Minneapolis (I'm here for work...) but this hotel makes it much more bearable!

    I received an unsolicited email from Radisson Blu giving me information about their event space, which is understandable as I receive similar emails from other wedding vendors. My problem with Radisson Blu is that they sent this email to 293 other people and they put all of our email addresses in the To field instead of BCC. Not only have all recipients' emails been shared with 300 strangers, but now I'm receiving emails from other people trying to remove themselves from this mailing list by doing a Reply All. This is one of the least professional emails I've ever received.

    Recently stayed at the Radisson Blu MPLS for a work conference, and it was a very pleasant stay. On the surface - the hotel is beautiful, the rooms are funky but comfortable, and the meeting space was not only architecturally interesting but also well laid out.

    Of the 400+ guests we hosted for this conference I think nearly all of them commented on the FOOD over the 2 days we were there. The meals were all spectacular! The staff was very friendly and accommodating as well.

    We had some trouble with management and the execution of our contract with the hotel for our meeting, but I am not going to include that here as I don't know many people would be reading YELP reviews prior to booking a space for a large meeting like we had. For the average vacationer or someone in town looking for a relaxing getaway I would highly recommend this venue. For those looking to host a large event or wedding - I'd probably skip it or you'll find yourself with a headache.

    This is first we have stayed at this hotel
    The remodel of hotel was nicely done
    We stayed in a standard king which very nice
    The hotel staff was friendly. Great location downtown to Target Center, theater district and some great restaurants
    Note skyway on weekends was not open until noon
    Other note Blu does not have a Bell Hop or luggage carts at least we did see one so be prepared to carry it. Not to big of a deal unless you lots of stuff
    We would have rated Blu  a 5 star if they had a Starbucks next door :).  But no worries there is one 3 short blocks away  
    Would recommend this hotel to be on your short list

    Bed was super comfy. Room was beautiful and modern. Except that the "windows" faced into an interior hallway (with a mattress propped up against the wall being stored there..) so we had zero natural light. Basically always dark. I've never stayed in a hotel without a window.

    We stayed on NYE so we expected some noise, but it was intolerable. Walls were thin. We could hear everything in the hallway and the room next door. Complained about noise and they sent security up. They eventually quieted down. But the hallway continued to be loud until 4 am. For a recently renovated space I'd expect hallway noise to be better than that.

    Also, bathroom smelled like pot, likely from our neighbors.

    Overall, pretty nice room but would like to have known to request a room with a actual window facing outside.

    Wouldn't spend $200 to stay here again. Way too many hotels downtown to put up with this stuff.

    I didn't stay here but this is a review of their customer service. A+ and I could not be happier.
    I booked a stay here on accident and actually wanted to stay at their mall of America location. There was a mix up and ended up getting charged at both places. I wrote them an email and explained the situation expecting them to not refund me (it wasn't technically their fault) but they did with a nice letter. 2 thumbs up for people that still value their customers. I'll be referring them to people in the area!

    We decided to stay downtown for a night and chose Radisson Blu for the location. So glad we did! I had visited the restaurant Firelake a few years ago and wasn't too impressed but since then they've been completely renovated.

    The hotel is impressive, to say the least. The rooms are huge and welcoming. We stayed in the basic king room and we're really impressed with just how big the basic rooms are. The room was very modern and the bed was super comfortable.

    We stopped by Firelake for drinks before going out to dinner and they were good! The food also looked delicious - definitely going to have to give Firelake another shot.

    Overall this is a great downtown hotel. I'll be recommending it to my friends and family when they come into town.

    Booked 3 rooms at this renovated hotel about a month ago- we booked through a 3rd provider and the rate was unbelievably low. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but upon arrival everyone in our party was impressed with the hotel lobby and service. It was very modern and tastefully decorated for the holidays. The concierge was very accommodating and they were able to get us all on the same floor. The rooms were pretty standard but very clean and stocked well. Overall we didn't have any complaints and very happy with our stay.

    Since our usual hotel was filled up, we decided to go to this one. Heard about their renovation and was super excited to check it out!

    One thing I LOVE about this place was the staff. Everyone was so nice and so accommodating. From the room service to the front desk staff, everyone was personable and really efficient.

    The rooms were on point as well! Huge king sized beds, LOTS of space in the actual room. I probably would have preferred to have a larger sized bathroom though. Don't get me wrong, it was still great! My tub was a little clogged so my showers turned into a mini bath, but all good. What I really liked was the mural on the wall when you entered the room. Super dramatic and gives the room so much character.

    At the end of the day, this place is a hotel I would prefer coming back to again. The rooms may have been nicer at the other place, however, the staff here was the best. They really made my stay one to remember!

    The Radisson Blu is a great update to what already was a well received Radisson Plaza property here in downtown Minneapolis.

    The update has been 'from top to bottom' with a very refined, modern and eye catching lobby. The huge 24 x 12 television opening up to a large central desk complete with large screen Mac Computers greets you on arrival. The front desk is rather minimal with quick check/out and a very friendly staff. 

    Rooms are still spacious, yet splendidly redesigned and redecorated with contemporary colors, very nice linens and extremely comfortable beds.  Some rooms face an inner court. Others the street below.  

    The AC & heat work well and maintain the selected temp. No issues there. 

    The brewed coffee machine has been replaced with an automated single-serve with 6 coffee pods stocked.

    Baths are contemporarily designed as well.

    Best of all, there's seems to be a real attention to detail and everything is noticeably very clean clean clean.

    The gym is well equipped with free hand weights, machines and plenty bof cardio machines. There's also a side cardio room with mats and stretching balls.

    Location is ideal. The entrance on 7th street is equidistant to Nicollet 1/2 block on one direction and 1/2 block in the opposite direction.  Both streets offering a bevy of restaurants, bars, Theater & music.

    Convenient of course, is the FireLake Grill House Restaurant adjoining at the lobby offering all the good stuff they are known for locally. 

    All in all, this Radisson Blu is an easy 5 stars.  Meets & Exceeds.

    My boyfriend and I decided to hit the Cities this past Easter weekend so I went on Hotels Tonight and came up with several available rooms. Since we were heading to Fogo de Chao for Easter brunch I wanted some place close and chose Radisson Blu based on the location, price and look of the pictures on their website. While the parking ramp was cramped (I recommend driving down to the lowest level) the elevator was swift and efficient, just like the desk clerk who checked us in. The lobby is modern and attractively furnished. The elevators are activated by room key (which I completely approve) and are admirably fast.

    We really REALLY loved the room. It was the perfect size, cozy without being cramped (we had the King size bed). Very attractively furnished and recently, as well. Bathroom was spotless and well-appointed - even had a small lighted make-up mirror! The closet was even lighted! The bed was a Beautyrest and very comfortable. While the TV was HD, many of the channels offered were not. However, they did have the necessary ports so we could plug in a tablet and watch Amazon Prime through the TV.

    Overall we were very pleased with the value we received for the price. We will definitely book there again!

    I dig these Radisson Blu hotels! I have stayed at the one by the Mall of America. But have not been to this redesigned Downtown Minneapolis version yet. The style is clean, modern, and funky! I was not staying here, but my parents were and I got to have a beer with them at the restaurant and hang out in their room for awhile!  

    I love the design of these rooms, totally fun!  I loved the cassette wall, and pop art photos above the beds.. The rooms are not huge, but kinda the perfect size!  They were on the 10th floor, facing north, and had a killer view, looking down on 7th street!
    The bathrooms are super nice, and squeaky clean.

    The price of this places is a little more expensive then some downtown hotels, but you get a really fun experience, both in room and location!  This hotel is located, within walking distance to Twins Games, Timberwolves games, First Ave, Nicollet Mall, and hundreds of bars and restaurants! WIN WIN!

    Hands down one of the most CURRENT, Open/Spacious, Comfortable hotels I have ever stayed in. I've stayed in about 75 different hotels across America and Canada and Radisson Blu on 7th is at the top when it comes to being modern. Great service, great bed, great bathroom.

    They've raised the bar for sure.

    Thank you!
