My wife and I stayed here for a chance to be alone from kids and distractions. I wanted an upgraded room for us but only the standard King Bed Room was available. Nice sized room for a building of this age! I was impressed. I have not seen the larger rooms but I am not sure I would get one...

The Inn looks really lovely especially from the street above and along the river -- the river looks great from inside the Inn but the experience just doesn't measure up to expectations...my expectations, of course. My husband and I had breakfast there today, my idea, he didn't like the Inn the two other times he has been there -- too...

Nicollet was a truly unique experience being in the middle of a bustling city, but secluded on a historic Island with easy access to the Minneapolis downtown (easy cross on bridge), the nice energy on St Anthony and close to the U. of M as well. There are not a lot of options on that side of the MIssissippi and...

Nicollet Island Inn has one of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities. I just love sitting at the window tables and watching the river flowing by while having lunch or dinner. The menu offers many well prepared and fantastic items - love the daily omelette with mixed greens or the entree salads for lunch and the salmon or filet...

We adore going to the Nicollet Island Inn for dinner, brunch, and overnights. Great getaway in such a beautiful setting that offers a rustic river view on one side and a spectacular city view on the other. Can be a bit spendy, but consider joining their "Celebration Club." On your birthday month, you get to take $20 off your restaurant...

The hotel is certainly not modern but it has all the amenities you may need. It's small and quiet, with very attentive staff. I enjoyed the fact that its removed from the rest of the city so its surroundings are very peaceful. I would definitely stay there in the future.

My fiancée and I selected Minneapolis as a destination for an end-of-the-year frequent flyer mile gathering trip and we chose the Nicollet Island Inn as our place to stay. Who would want to be in the Twin Cities by choice in late December? We would and highly recommend it! The NII is a warm, cozy, historic place with a wonderful...

We have been staying at the Inn for over 15 years. It's the only place we stay in the Cities. Cozy and inviting rooms. The restaurant is top notch! Stay in one corner rooms with a nice view of Mpls. Very nice place overall to stay.

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed here in September shortly after I lost both of my parents. The staff was beyond wonderful and understanding, especially Danielle. Our room was beautiful, and the Island itself is an oasis with trails and outstanding views of the river and downtown. The hotel has an amazing restaurant and bar but there are many other...
