Rated 2 out of 5 by misshannah0726 Very disatisfied
I decided to surprise my family and take them to the Guthrie Theater to see The Christmas Carol on Saturday night. While looking up hotels, I saw that Aloft was right across the street. I was very excited to surprise my husband and two girls with a special memorable night. However, upon getting the room, we quickly realized that the power outlet to plug in our phones was not working. The other outlets were already full with the TV, alarm clock, etc. The first thought was "fire hazard". Secondly, we could not turn the bathroom light on without turning the bedroom light on. So when we had to get up to use the restroom at night, the bright lights woke up our youngest. Thirdly, the pool was extremely cold, and my bathwater at home is warmer than the hot tub was. The only enjoyable thing about the stay was the breakfast. They had a great egg and sausage sandwich. It would have been nice to know that the Spaghetti Factory was literally across the street, however when we asked the front desk about places for dinner, they only suggested pizza delivery. We would have loved to have gone to the Spaghetti Factory instead.

The bathroom shower door does not close properly allowing water to seap out. I think you need a floor mat near the sink and a mat near the shower. One is not enough.
At the bar, please provide spoons to use for the snacks. People put their hands in the bowl. One person put the food near her mouth and then back in the bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andyaz1 Super quiet room!
Great place to stay for a good nights sleep. For when you want to have some fun and/or company, the bar is great, and features live music on some days. Great location downtown, with many great restaurants close by. Friendly staff, and great service. One of my favorite places to stay at!

Originally we were told that the shuttle would be available to take us to the location of the Wedding we were here for.
At last minute shuttle was not available. which caused many people to make new last second arrangements.
Not a pretty sight!!

The hotel has cool decor, great facilities, and open/sunny space throughout. The staff were friendly and even recognized me by name. Late night drinks in the bar were a nice way to end the night and the exercise room was terrific for staying in shape. Great!

Made reservation a month before daughter's wedding night, August 17, contacted front desk two days before to verify reservation and late night checkin, was assured enerything was taken care of. Bride and groom arrived to checkin and told no room available as online system overbooked hotel. "The computer did it" Where i work people operate the organization, not computers. Staff on duty gave form apology letter with directions to the Ramada. Staff had lemon attitudes. Customer checked out so waited for room to be cleaned and certainly had the "late" checkin. Ths hotel is the joke of the wedding party and won't be forgotten for a long time.

Great hotel in a convenient location. I always enjoy my stays at the Aloft Minneapolis and this trip was no exception. The front desk staff is prompt and courteous. I like the wide ranges of food and beverage selection available. The location is close to everything. The only minor negatives I experienced is the self parking is luck of the draw at the garage across the street where the gate seemed to be broken on two occasions not admitting me (not part of the hotel property) which forces you to park on the streets and run down first thing in the morning to put money in the meters. Overall a great hotel!!
