I was treated horribly. There was something wrong with our toilet -- we checked into the hotel around 10pm, got settled, and left for a concert at about 10:30. When we returned home, there was water on the floor in the bathroom. How did we discover this? Because my friend slipped on it when she went into the bathroom and...

We enjoyed our one night stay. The Inn is within walking distance of First Avenue nightclub. Our room was clean and comfortable. Secured parking a plus! We will be returning in November for another night's stay.

Typical Holiday Inn Express in safe neighborhood. Can walk to downtown shops and restaurants as well as parks along Missippi river. Staff pleasant and willing to help with restaurant recommendations. Very small lobby so do not plan on business meetings in lobby!

I spent 1 night at the gotel. Very well located if you're going to the convention center. Very clean, good amenities (wifi worked well), nice hot shower, comfy bed, and fantastic service from well mannered receptionists. I would stay again.

I am very happy I choose to stay here. I initially choose it because of its price point and location. I don't normally stay at Hilton Hotels as I've had not so great experiences in the past, but I gave this one a try. Upon arriving, even though it was before check-in time, my room was ready. I was pleasantly...

Very courteous staff. Didn't encounter any problems. I love that they have fruit-infused water in their lobby. I didn't open it, but I saw they had a binder of local happy hour information next to other area brochures & a discount card I think for restaurants. I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room. This hotel feels a bit...

Stayed here for two nights. Staff was very accommodating and the hotel had fresh, clean rooms. Our 5th floor room was PERFECT for great quiet rest. FANTASTIC downtown location! If you are looking for a 5-Star hotel with all the amenities, then not the place for you. HOWEVER, if you like a clean, friendly, helpful, well-kept, moderately priced, fantastic location,...

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance. Rooms were very clean and super comfortable. Front desk was helpful. Breakfast is average continental breakfast style but is good.

Spent Labor Day weekend to attend state fair. Great location. Within walking distance of good restaurants and the football stadium. Plenty of covered parking across the street if hotel parking is full. Close enough to midtown yet area around hotel is quiet. Staff was very personable and friendly. Would definitely stay again.
