This hotel is a mixed bag, nicely updated in some ways, oddly old fashioned in others. Decor: totally weird mixture of patterns and colors, as though the room were a sampler of possible options and nobody could pick one. Cool striped curtains, warm spotted furniture, clashing bedding. Bathroom tile very weird, clashing with countertop. Odd skinny shelf in the bathroom...

We loved our stay at the Crowne Plaza. Our double room was huge & had two sinks with lots of counter space. The decor is new & modern, & our room was spotless. The location is close to Nicollet Mall & the parking was very convenient. We will definitely stay here again!

The best way to describe this hotel is to call it "mixed". Guests enter at street level containing the lobby and bar area in a compact space. The bar fills with people at happy hour and stays busy throughout the evening. Several floors above the lobby are used for a public and commuter parking garage. Guest Rooms begin at about...

Good location in downtown and a decent price (booked well in advance). Rooms/beds were good, although in some areas the hotel shows its age as an older building. Elevators were annoying slow at peak times.

I would not stay here again based on the price paid for the atmosphere. The front desk staff was friendly. The room was ok. Updated bathroom, but ceiling was flaking, the closet door missing handle, bed was comfortable. The bar tender was slow and lacked focus. The bar area was very small and not accomodating. Parking was an additional $12...

As IHG Platinum Ambassadors, we are biased towards the IHG chain of hotels, of which Crowne Plaza belongs to. We love staying here because it is walking distance to all local attractions (theatre district, Target Center, Target Field, all downtown). Further, parking is always very easy and check in always goes smoothly. As Platinums, we have always been upgraded to...

The staff was friendly and the location was great for downtown shopping and dining. The bathrooms are quite small and some of the tile flooring is uneven but the room was very clean. Bed and pillows were both very comfortable. We would definitely stay at this location again.

All the staff were very friendly. The views of Minneapolis are great. I like their rooftop patio/garden on the 8th floor I believe. Food was very good and bar has large selection of drinks. We will definitely stay there again.
