Rated 5 out of 5 by SPGPlatinum111111 Great Choice in Minneapolis
Le Meridien in Minneapolis continues to be one of the top spots to stay when you are in the twin cities. Rooms are extremely comfortable, staff if extremely accommodating and location is great. Only negative is the tiny gym and no concierge lounge. If you are going to Minneapolis anytime soon i highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christoph My favorite Le Meridien...
Superior interior design, better service at check-in and in the restaurant. Good food and extensive nutritional info on menu...on so many levels so much better than other good hotels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fronoz All the things a growing boy needs
Spent a lot of time in the fitness room this last trip. The Treadmill and I became frien-emies. There is also a sampling of free weights, ellipticals and a bike. Lots of room to stretch and get what you need done.
My other favorite spot is the Bar. Inside or Out always a good time. Ross is fantastic. Ask him for a special creation or just stick with the Pararossa... the late night margarita pizza is something I look forward to on trips to the twin cities.
The bed is one of the most comfortable I've slept in. I love the space I have to spill out of my suitcase. Being a bigger guy, the large showers are wonderful. I do wish there was a little more room around the sink for my shaving kit, but I always seem to make due.
James at the front desk is great. Always seems to be on top of things, even when I make my odd and strange requests. Always happy to help, and usually pretty good with a joke if you need it.
All in all, this is one of those places I actually enjoy traveling too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bren5 Nice location, but service needs improvement
Staff checking guests in and out, represents your hotel and sets the mood of your stay. My experience with checking in was horrible, he was rude and presented a desire to be anywhere but at work. The room was nice, but should be in complete working order when hosting guests. Room service was prompt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CancunTraveler Whats Old Is New Again
It had been decades since I had been in this area of Minneapolis and it is quite amazing how an former flop-house/hotel could have been re-imagined into such a contemporary property. Mind you this old building was saved and everything in the inside is entirely new.
The guest rooms was fine; but, I have never see so many light switches in one room. While designed to allow for virtually any lighting mode desired, you have to be sure to check to see if there is a tiny dimmer switch you slide just to the side of each switch.
The best feature of all was the heated bathroom floor. There could be no nice amenity than this during the windy and very cold night of my stay.
The guestroom itself does not really allow for veiwing TV other than from desk or the bed. The side chair placed under the wall-mounted TV is not useful to TV viewing.
If you have not been to the hotel, the hotel entrance is not on the corner of Hennepin Avenue. Rather you will find a dark side door on 9th Avenue. The entrance way was poorly lit and there was no sense of arrival. I figure the coldnest of the night was the reason the doorman was standing indoor next to the gas fireplace that separates the hotel lobby from the restaurant.
I would suggest improved (increased) lighting under the small canopy that covers the hotel's main entrance. Infrared heaters would be nice in the winter and certainly make for a warmer welcome. Additionally, signage on the east side of the 9th Avenue canopy announcing the hotel would be useful for guests and visitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rapper99 The customer service was impeccable.
The hotel staff went above and beyond anything I could have asked for!! They took it upon THEMSELVES to place my newlywed son in the best room the hotel offered - as a gift to them. Le Meridien's generosity truly moved me to tears. I have NEVER experienced such fantastic customer relations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizaLeader79 Will definitely go back to Le Meridien!
Nice boutique hotel. Quiet and trendy. Because the floors in the bathroom are heated, the room stayed too warm, so be aware. Other than that, it was excellent! I will go again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JQ44 it was ok
it was nice but...
bathroom did not have enough counter space.
we were supposed to receive "goodie bags" upon arrival but didn't. Had to ask for the bag when we checked out. Would have never knew about the bag unless bride asked how we enjoyed it.
Bedding was wonderful. Great view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Camie22 Wonderful and Accommodating
We stayed here for our wedding, but I stayed there the night before. Not only were the staff helpful, but also were accommodating when we used their facilities to take photos for our bridal party. It was a great place, where we felt well taken care of and comfortable. Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lbk42 Cold shower
My room had a broken shower. No hot water. After 3 days of asking, finally it was adjusted but not fixed. I was told the part was too expensive to stock and not to move the valve all the way to hot or it would fall off!
Restaurant closed, below average food being served.

We stayed at Le Meridian with a baby, which I don't think they have as a guest terrribly often, and it couldn't have been easier. The rooms were large enough that he could run around and treat it like home! Service was above and beyond anything we could have asked for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnGtxex Incredible Hotel!
This was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! Every single staff member that we encountered wanted to help us and was polite and accommodating. I cannot say enough about how nice they made our stay in Minneapolis. We will definitely stay here again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by agfan Good stay
Minneapolis has a number of great Starwood options, and this was my first stay at the Chambers. No Platinum upgrade, but hotel is small so that happens. Room was nice and spacious. No counter space in bathroom.
Fitness center is small but with good equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJL321 Amazing Hotel!
I was so pleasantly surprised when I checked in to my room that I extended my stay for an additional day. The room was oversized, had a great work station, and the most comfortable bed and pillows. It was just an exceptional stay and I cannot wait to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Privacyman Hotel is still being renovated but doing a great job
Loved the room - very comfortable and quiet. I liked the Chambers cafe for breakfast - well prepared and prompt. Friendly and accommodating staff. Would definitely stay here again if in Minneapolis. Should be even better once the Marin restaurant is done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by donnaJK Tough experience
The room was beautiful. It was clean. Could use free wifi. The breakfast was good, but would have liked coffee pot in room or room service. The biggest issue was I'm guessing the pipes. Must be old building and I slept horribly due to all the noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christoph This hotel is a work of art.
This compact hotel in Le Meridien design is particularly remarkable for its numerous works of modern art dispersed all over the hotel. Our executive room was exceptionally well designed. The best of our most recent 30 stays at SPG properties.

Love the comfortable rooms and professional staff, the "art gallery" theme throughout the entire hotel, and the fabulous restaurant. Plus, the location is super convenient. I travel a lot and this is one of my all around favorites!

I love everything about this hotel. The location, the artsy feel, the funkiness gives it a special, distinct sense that is so attractive in so many ways; it's "outside the box". Highly recommend staying here.

What a gem of a hotel! So modern and luxurious, it was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on.
We booked on a third party website and were so delighted that I was still given an upgrade as a SPG.

Solid hotel for those that prefer less clutter and a more modern look. Rooms are very nice and service was solid. Only downside is the gym which is extremely small for a higher end hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim86 The Right Size, The Right Quality, The Right Place
The Chambers is a boutique hotel right in the heart of the Minneapolis entertainment district. The rooms and the hotel are filled with original artwork. The furnishings and the beds are wonderful. A wonderful surprise for me was stepping into the bathroom at night and realizing that the floor is heated. During a cold Minneapolis night, the floors were certainly a delight!
I have stayed at the Chambers for both business and pleasure. I find myself being drawn to the hotel when I am not up for the large hotel experience and dragging my bags across large lobbies and up to the 30th floor and down to the end of the hall. I like being about to just steps away from my room.
In terms of service, I have had mixed experiences in my 8-10 stays. Generally the service is extremely professional and helpful. At times people at the front desk are somewhat clueless. The good news is that things get worked out, it just takes time. I won’t stay at hotels where the service is bad. The Chambers gets 8 of 10 stars on service. Chances are your experience will be excellent. If you run into a dud, give them an extra chance.
