We were able to get this hotel for $100 on very short notice and were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this hotel is! The pool/Jacuzzi area is just gorgeous! This place is very centrally located to a lot of things to do in downtown MN! I will definitely stay here again.

The hotel is very clean, the staff is super courteous, and we had a flawless stay. The room was beyond my expectations. The fact they had a swimming pool and great food was just a bonus. I wasn't sure where I wanted to stay but next time it definitely be here!

Have stayed at this hotel many times and have always had a great experience. Location is great, service is great, hotel is clean and very nice. Reservation desk clerk gave us a ride to the convention center for the motorcycle expo and picked up back up.

We have stayed here for the past two years during a convention at the Convention Center (such an easy walk!). Our event almost always ends after the shuttle stops running but the walk back to the hotel is super easy. The beds are comfortable, the staff (the staff!!) is so great, everyone we spoke to was welcoming and seemed to...

This hotel was excellent. The room was very clean and had a very nice smell of citrus - made the stay very homey. They offer complementary milk and cookies in the lobby at 10pm. I ate at the restaurant from the hotel for both dinner and lunch and everything was delicious. Prices were reasonable. The only thing that tainted my...

This hotel is very centrally located to everything downtown, but keep in mind that many of the surrounding restaurants are marketed as high class, so you will have to travel a little to find average priced food. The food at the hotel was very good, but a little pricey. The hotel rooms could definitely use some updates to the furniture,...

Stay at the hotel for the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. Location is good, a little off the way from the warehouse district where most of the excitement happens. But was able to walk to the Target Center in about 10 minutes. The hotel itself is unique. The room pretty average. I had a double queen room. Beds were comfortable....
