    Incredible bargain in gentrifying Warehouse district. Short ride or a few blocks walk to everything in downtown Minneapolis. Room was spotlessly clean, functional w/ good-size kitchenette. Big enough for a couple w/ a 10 yr old, and even though on first floor, so quiet we didn't hear the traffic on 2nd. Will definitely return when Target Field opens and walk to a Twins' game.

    Dirty hotel:

    Where do we begin?  Oh, yeah... here we go ---

    *Dishwasher in my room didn't work
    *Broken glass left in dishwasher from last guest
    *Front desk staff will buzz anyone into parking garage without verifying identity
    *Reading material left by previous guest in nightstand
    *Doesn't look like they've ever cleaned between stove and counter
    *Someone's nasty Q-tip was behind the nightstand
    *Toilet runs mysteriously by itself in the middle of the night
    *Closet door is cheap and falls off track
    *Ironing board cover doesn't stay on, was stained
    *Shower had about zero water pressure... and some funky pink stuff growing on it --- oh right --- that's mold!!!!!!
    *There was trash overflowing from the trash can for 3 days in a row.  The staff walked past it and did nothing.  In fact, the maintenance guys added burnt out light bulbs to the pile of trash!!!
    *Food from a previous guest was smeared all over the drapes.  Yummy!!!
    *Don't forget the milkshake that was splattered all over the alarm clock and TV.  At least I hope that was a milkshake.

    If you ever think of staying at this hotel... I'd save myself the $100 a night and instead just wipe your rear-end with a $100 for every night you planned on staying there ---- you'll get about the same effect!!!

    This hotel needs a serious change in staff and direction.  Don't go there, I don't recommend it.

    Very nice.  Great Value.  It's not a four star hotel but it gets four stars because it is above average.

    Since writing this review, I've stayed on two more occasions and again had no issues. If it wasn't right in the neighborhood where I want to be, I wouldn't necessarily seek it out, but it is and it does the job.

    This hotel is amazing! I have to stay in extended stay hotels often for work, and this is the best I've been in by far. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The hotel is secure. Parking is safe. The housekeeping is always done quickly and effectively. The room is big and includes an oven and dishwasher- not always found in extended stay hotels. The work out area is always clean. The pool area is well-maintained. They have a light breakfast daily and coffee in the lobby at all times. I am happy to have gotten a chance to stay here!

    The Marriott Towne Place Suites is located in the warehouse district and about four blocks from the new Twins stadium. The neighborhood is great with a number of new restaurants including coal fired pizza and great tapas.

    They accept dogs, even though my English Bulldog is really a four legged person, and have free parking. The rooms include a kitchen area and there are also laundry facilities. Free WiFi is included even though it is not that fast. The bed is the only drawback. It was too squishy and killed my back by the morning.

    I highly recommend the area if you want a reasonable rate and be only a two blocks from the Mississippi river and the park systems around it.

    I was in Minneapolis for an audition, and this hotel came recommended by the company. We got there very late, but somehow, the concierge still managed to be friendly (close to 1 am).

    Our room was just what we needed. It was clean, and already at the perfect temperature. For what we paid too, it was a very large room. The bed was really comfortable. As was needed, I got a great night's sleep.

    I wish this place had breakfast (and/or way stronger coffee). I was, however, really impressed with the customer service across the board. I needed to use the computer and they were very nice and helpful about using the business center.

    If I ever come back to Minneapolis, I'd definitely stay here again!

    great location, great free breakfast. The staff was so helpful for me being an out of towner. The lobby always had hot coffee ready all times of the day. Only bad part was the parking, $13 a day is pretty ridiculous, but I just street parked the whole stay.

    Stayed here for a month due to an in-between-leases situation. Price was extremely reasonable, and the staff was always happy to accommodate. Also, they allow pets, which helped us out immensely. Our room came with a den, which allowed us to spread out a little and feel less cooped up. The pool was open for half that time - it closed mid-September (even though we were still having unseasonably nice weather). Nice workout facilities, as well. Yes, it's a little old and no, I wouldn't recommend it as a romantic spot to whisk away your significant other, but it more than sufficed for our stint as hotel-dwellers.

    This was also the hotel we had family and friends stay at for our wedding in June, partly because of it's close proximity to our apartment and partly because it's a great deal. No complaints. We had our morning after brunch / gift opening by the pool and it was lovely.

    Word to the wise: Be careful backing out of the underground parking spots. Those concrete pillars will tear your car up.

    A superb, reasonably priced, tastefully appointed hotel in a quiet, gentrified neighborhood; honestly, I can't speak highly enough about my experience this past week.  The hotel is proximate to everything: light rail (5 minutes max), a half hour ride from MSP, nightlife and restaurants (2 minutes max), an old - timey hardware store if that's your thing, a short walk to Nicollet Mall (15 minutes max) and downtown, and of course, the river.  My room was on the 2nd floor (220) with a street view.  Quiet, spacious, clean, very comfortable, well lit, good mattress, plenty of storage space, and nicely carpeted.  I was most pleased that it had a kitchen, desk, big closet, and sitting area.  Although I didn't spend a lot of time in my room, save for sleeping, it felt like home. The fitness center, living room with Internet access, billiards room, and meeting room are added benefits.  As other reviewers have noted, what made my experience stand out from 99.9 percent of my other hotel experiences was the staff.  Incredibly hospitable, friendly, fun, helpful, knowledgeable, earnest, eager, and just downright good people.  If for no other reason than the staff, you should strongly consider this hotel when you visit MPLS, especially if you need to be near the city center or Target Field.  Indeed, as Brian-Douglas S. noted in his review, a "hidden gem" all the way around.

    Um, I am so confused by the other reviews for this place. Maybe this is nice for Minneapolis, but if there was ever a place that needed any update in the last 20 years, this would be it. Who in their right mind ever thought orange and brown carpet and nicotine stain color walls with fluorescent lighting was a good idea needs to go back to design school. This is what you see as you walk the long, narrow, smelly halls of the Towneplace Suites. The room decor follows that same lovely color scheme and same bad lighting plan. Minneapolis as a town seems dark and depressing. No need to match style with surroundings. Important stuff. Kitchenette appliances circa 1992. Bathroom fixtures, maybe 95. Furniture, I would say around the same era, either that or there have been some really large people sitting on the chairs and sofas for a really long time. They were hard as rocks. This was pretty much the same experience with the bed. One of those really cheap "firm" mattresses that if you sleep in any one position too long, you wake up and the entire side you were on is completely numb. Coffee and breakfast... If you are a fan of fruit loops and gas station coffee, you'll love it. If you've come to expect the luxuries of say a Holiday Inn Express, you will be sadly disappointed. Overall, I can cross this particular brand in the Marriott chain off my list. Would not ever stay at this particular location again and am unlikely to stay at other "Towneplace" as well.

    Great location to Twins Stadium and north end of the downtown bars, but writing this review mainly b/c of customer service.

    I stayed at this hotel last Sat and met front-desk John.  Exceeded expectations and deserves the corresponding recognition. Thanks John for your hospitality and professionalism.

    I put my parents up for the week when they came to visit me. They loved it, it was very clean and the parking was really easy. It was also very quiet.

    Ok hotel with nice spacious rooms.  No a big fan other beds here, a bi too high and the sheets are very rough.....so are the towels.  The location is nice, and close to a lot of nice trend restaurants.

    The TownePlace Suites isn't fancy, but it's clean, affordable, and conveniently located close to downtown Minneapolis & NE Minneapolis.  The closest light rail stop is about 4 blocks away, right next to Target Field.  Some of the major bus lines are within walking distance, as is downtown Minneapolis.  

    Our room was nice and clean, and the kitchen was definitely more than what we'd expected.  It was a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator, a large kitchen sink, a small 4 burner stove, a small oven, a dishwasher, a microwave, and a coffeemaker.  The cupboards were stocked with plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, and some basic cooking supplies.  Even though we didn't make full use of the kitchen, it was nice to have a refrigerator and microwave for any leftovers.      

    The staff was nice and friendly, and there was a computer & printer in the lobby.  I also liked the coffee bar in the lobby, which was also stocked with tea and hot cocoa.  It was a really nice touch, perfect for when we returned to the hotel after being out and about in the snow and cold.

    My only complaint about the hotel is the walls seemed to be abnormally thin.  Yes, I realize it's a hotel and that's just the way it is, but these walls seemed to be unusually thin.  I could clearly hear people walking around above me, and I could hear people next door using their kitchen.  And some people might appreciate the pet policy, but I have mixed feelings.  There was a dog nearby, barking for several hours while its owners were away.  Even though it was a little noisier than I would have liked, it was quiet when it really mattered- later at night while we were sleeping.

    Situated in the warehouse district, within 1 mile from beautiful downtown Minneapolis, this hotel provided an almost perfect experience. It doesn't have really fancy decor or accomodations, but its not supposed to. It was affordable, everything was very clean, friendly staff, completely non-smoking, and the best part - free continental breakfast (muffins, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and juice). CNN is on during breakfast!

    I highly recomend this hotel to anyone coming to the area. I rated it 4 instead of 5 stars only because if you're looking for a "fancy or upscale" experience, then you you won't find it here. But again, it has normal normal (and clean/working), like a  TV and full kitchen appliances. There is no restaurant/cafe either, but plenty of dining options are a few blocks away, downtown.

    I got a great deal on a room on Hotwire. It is meant for extended stays, but I was only there for a night.
    The rooms are big, with a full kitchen, bath, sleeping area, large desk, and sitting area. It was clean and in fairly good shape. Only complaint was a broken closet door.
    Breakfast consisted of a variety of cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, banana, muffins. Nothing extensive but good enough.
    I used the workout room, which had 4 machines and some free weights. Nothing fancy, but good enough if you just want to have a short workout.
    You have to pay to park a car, but when I arrived there were plenty of spots just out front on the street. They don't monitor the parking meters from 6pm-9am, so if you're just there overnight you can save money by parking on the street. It seems like a fairly safe residential part of downtown.

    When the city of Minneapolis was nearly sold out, I booked four rooms for myself and colleagues.
    I was a bit shocked to find such a great hotel. Somewhat newly remodeled and a little hidden gem, the rooms were very well appointed and the lobby was nicely done.. but.. the best was the young front desk (Michelle and John) whom were so helpful and gracious and went out of their way to be so.

    Decent location, secured access building. Parking options are below-grade garage (full of resident cars) or above-ground 'secured' lot behind the building. I say 'secured' because the gates were open for the entirity of our visit.

    It was nice having a kitchenette (which we mostly used as a beer storage area), but you could actually cook and eat meals here if you were in for an extended stay. Not recently updated or modern in nature, but a decent price for a clean room and good service.

    The one thing that would make me consider another hotel next time we're in town was the bed. When I'm staying at a Marriott branded hotel, I generally expect the bed to be at least as comfortable (usually more so) than my bed at home. This was definitely not the case, as I was excited to sleep in my own bed after three nights on that mattress.

    Not what I expect from the Marriott name. The room was ugly and poorly laid out - the tv rotates in order to be seen from the seating as well as the bed - which means it is difficult for more than one person to see it from the bed. As other posters have mentioned the mattress, bedding, and towels were terrible.
    The only place where the times for breakfast were listed was in the corner of a paper calendar the stuck on the side of the fridge - I only saw it by accident after searching everywhere else for the info!!!
    The walls were thin. I could hear our neighbors. The maid replaced the coffee we used, but not the sugar and replaced our towels daily despite the fact we took care to indicate we preferred not to have them changed (such a waste of resources!)
    I'm glad we had a special rate because we booked using a reserved rate for a wedding, because I would never pay full price for what we got.

    Here two nights for work. Location is interesting in the downtown loop area where i had never been before. Driving by the "romance" shop to get there at night was surprising but it's a safe place to walk around despite the gentlemens clubs. The hotel is well maintained despite the older building. They have a workout room, outdoor pool and indoor billiards room. Breakfast is just cereal and some pastries, sufficient but not exciting.

    The staff here was super helpful andade checking in enjoyable. Parking is a bit pricey. I would like to stay here again so I can be close to all the cool restaurants. I was also surprised at how not crowded the traffic was, which was a pleasant surprise.

    When she gave me my key card envelope labeled "Room 313," I knew it was going to be a good stay. You see, baseball was on my mind. I had taken the Metro Blue Line from MSP to Target Field, before walking to TPS, so was thinking about Harmon Killibrew. And, though I am a confirmed St. Louis Cardinals convert, my formative years were spent watching and/or listening to Detroit Tigers' broadcasts. Some people remember the double-play combination, "Tinkers to Evers to Chance," but, in my neighborhood, our imaginary doubleplays always were "Brinkman to MacAuliffe to Cash." What does this have to do with "313," you ask? Well, if you grew up when and where I did, and were a ten-year-old baseball fan enthralled by a visit to the old Tiger Stadium, then you might remember it was Al Kaline's batting average in 1972, his last really good year as a player. It's printed on one of my old baseball playing cards that got lost somewhere during my journey; maybe someday I'll find it on the field of dreams.

    Anyway, TPS was a fine introduction to the Warehouse District, a comfortable room (see my photos). There are snacks to purchase at the front desk, and a little convenience store across the street to the east. But I didn't try them out, as a Whole Foods also is a reasonable walking distance away, probably about two minutes by car (with a gelato bar!). The immediate area looks rather gentrified.  But not so many blocks away, you begin to run into some unsavory establishments, so caution at night.

    If you're in town for a ball game, then it's just a half-mile walk to home.

    Here for five nights, I got a decent amount of usage in this hotel working one day here and then catching a taxi to my customer's office the other days.

    Friendly staff at the check in desk and my room was cleaned perfectly each day. Full size fridge with coffeemaker, toaster and a full size range. You could actually cook here if you want to. There was a little bit of noise from the hallway and one morning, there was some pounding from the room upstairs. Otherwise, pretty good.

    The hotel's breakfast is rather limited, with cold cereal, oatmeal, some fruit (apples, oranges and bananas) and yogurt. But it's something. You're better off walking a couple of blocks over to the Whole Foods and picking up your own stuff to prepare in your room.

    There is some parking available on the street if you're lucky, otherwise the hotel does have a garage and a small lot.

    There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance. I really enjoyed the Smack Shack, which is just through the rear door and across the parking lot.

    A good Marriott location in downtown Minneapolis. I stayed here one weekend during football season when other properties were short on availability.

    This TownPlace Suites is a good spot for people with Marriott Points to redeem who want to stay in Minneapolis because it's smack dab downtown. The North Loop is a up and coming area and this is right in the center for 15K points a night.

    Overall, it's what you would expect from a townplace suites. It fits the bill for a hotel, but it's not a luxury location. It's fairly well run, but not perfect (interactions with the front desk were not incredibly short). Rooms are pretty clean, but the furniture isn't as updated or new as a new Marriott or SPG property.

    I would stay here again because it's such an affordable hotel with points knowing that it would be a good experience.

    For business, this is a very solid hotel with all the classic amenities - reminds me of a Residence Inn.

    Rooms were large and clean.  Powerful AC to help deal with hot humid weather in Minneapolis.  Their free wifi is pretty strong - I was able to stream movies without problem on my Kindle.  Their lobby has a printer for boarding passes, a pool table, free coffee and water, and lots of places to sit.  Breakfast was basic but they have a good selection of cereals, Otis Spunkmeyer muffins, yogurts, oatmeal, and bottled juices.

    Good location in the Warehouse district, with easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops, and groceries.  You're best off calling cabs or Uber though, since they don't have much in terms of taxi stand.
