this is not where you want to stay to get a restful nigh sleep. Furnishings were decent. location is good. Overnight front desk staff not the most inviting. The exercise facility leaves much to be desired.

This hotel is located not far from everything in Minneapolis, from night life to transportation. The staff was amazing, and the room very nice. It even induced a safe and refigerator. The only issue is that the room was very cold. I turned the thermostat way up and it would get warm, but just for a little while. Highly recommended.

A well done-up Northstar hotel updated to Crown Plaza standards. Nice lobby, restaurants, and bar. An adequate executive lounge is a nice amenity for those with the proper IHG status. All around choice hotel for business/family/leisure travel alike.

Crowned Plaza never disappoints us. Room service, front desk are top notch and great location if you like to walk and enjoy downtown Minneapolis. Parking is $$ and a possible discount if you are quests at the hotel would be nice. Otherwise, we will be back.
