I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Minneapolis on business and I found the hotel staff to be incredibly friendly, the room spotlessly clean and the location incredibly convenient. Check-in & out were a breeze and the room was nicely appointed. This is not a "fancy" hotel, but it is a great location. The hotel is connected to the Skyway and has complimentary 24-hr access to a small fitness center and a great breakfast cafe on the 7th floor. Overall I don't think this would be my first choice if I was visiting on leisure (try the Westin or the Grand especially for a little classier accomodations), but I wouldn't mind staying at this hotel again in the future. The only two noticable cons to the hotel were the blinds in the room (I couldn't quite get them to close all the way) and I did note that the walls seemed to carry sounds well. However, neither of these items disturbed my sleep so they are minor cons in my opinion. There is a garden plaza in the middle of the hotel with benches, trees and what looked like fire pits which I would imagine is quite lovely in other times of the year (snow covered this area when I visited). I would say that the hotel is very good choice if you are traveling on business, but the price wasn't that much cheaper than other hotels in the downtown area which I would prefer if traveling on leisure.
