Stayed here on business as a recommendation from a colleague - staff went over and above to ensure I was welcomed, all my needs were taken care of and that I had an excellent stay. I had requested upon my reservation if possible to have a room high up with a city view as I heard was spectacular - and...

The best Downtown Minneapolis hotel at my home town of Minneapolis, MN. The deco inside the room is amazing, modern and sleek. The downstairs bar called Living Room has amazing music played by Lanka Paris, the best DG in town. The managers Allison and Mike are best in service industry. On 27th Floor you have the amazing view of the...

I found a good deal online for a corner room, so after the Vikings game we stayed in MPLS! The valet parking was slick (never used it before), and check-in and out was a breeze. The room was great, and the service was better!

It was snowing and the combination of the snow and the lights of the building made the view from the room beautiful. The room was cold but we had been advised of that in a call before our stay so we asked for a portable heater and it was quickly provided. This kept the room very comfortable. I had read...

Really enjoyed the room and the fantastic view! The Foshay Tower is a local landmark which makes it even better. We also enjoyed drinks on the top floor in the bar. They were a little expensive, but its downtown Minneapolis, so to be expected. Staff was very friendly.

Normally it's a little out of my price range, but I got a great deal around the holidays. The room was beautiful, as was the view. Great for a special occasion. Be sure to visit Manny's, which is right next door. Made for a fun and decadent night!
