Rated 3 out of 5 by Htomczak Good but watch out for extra costs
When I made my reservations I made it with parking included. However, when I got there the sign said it would be $15 dollars a night for hotel guest. I stayed 2 nights and they charged me $60. I still don't understand that. My daughter and I ordered room service of two bowls of ice cream and some veggies and it cost $40. For that much I was expecting a bowl, not to small scoops. While the staff was friendly, and the place was nice but being somewhat limited on cash the unforeseen charges were not good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jigjog Excellent Staff!
The hotel felt a bit "tired" to me. There were stains on the carpet in the hallway to my room and you could see a few places where the drywall had been repaired. For the $375 average that I spent per night (parking was included at $30 per night) I expected a much higher quality hotel. In checking prices for other nearby hotels (The W and The Graves) I felt that The Chambers should have been a bit better maintained. As I mentioned, however, the staff was very helpful, friendly and professional.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LeviJ Snarky Staff, Beware of charges, dated room
I booked a 3-night stay at the Le Meridien Chambers from 10/31 - 11/3/14 as we were in town for a wedding that weekend and it was close to where the reception was held. Immediately upon check in I noticed the clerk almost seemed BOTHERED we were there. It was baffling to me. In all subsequent interactions with any front desk staff their attitude was smug, snarky, stuck up.
When I called to ask for help connecting to WiFi they read the directions from the room card - I told them I followed them closely already - then they said "they're not hard to follow. connecting to the Internet is easy." REALLY?!?! Because they had my hyphenated last name in the computer with a space instead of a hyphen. I eventually figured out on my own just to use the first part of my last name. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE... if this were a WalMart!
Additionally, I was charged after the fact for Pet Damage for which there was NONE. NUMEROUS attempts to contact the hotel about this has produced no call back, no proof of damage. When I call I'm transferred to a voicemail of some chick who handles accts receivable who I am now convinced is not a real person. I sincerely believe that because I have a service animal and the hotel cannot legally charge me extra for the stay the made up the charges.
I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I was in the quality of the people who work at this abysmal establishment and the fraudulent charges that will most certainly show up on your hotel bill. Not to mention the sink in the bathroom is pulling away from the wall. This place needs new management, honest accountants, and a complete renovation. Until then, STAY AWAY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidwestMartins Great stay in a great city
Loved the location in the heart of Minneapolis. Shopping, dining and the arts are all within walking distance. Room service was great. The room was fantastic, and the staff went above and beyond, even returning by mail an item we'd left behind in our room.
I have stayed at hotels all over North America, and I would rate this stay as one of the best, at half the price of most stays.
If you want an upscale, cool and comfortable hotel in Miineapolis, start and end your search here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JMK3 Fun Trendy Hotel -- Like Living in an Art Gallery
Nice hotel, neat concept of having modern art exhibits and installations throughout the hotel. Very unique. Good Platinum recognition, although they charged me for the internet. Tried to contact on three different emails (from SPG.com or emails sent from hotel) -- all three emails were returned as undeliverable. SPG Facetime rep contacted hotel on my behalf to sort out the issue.
Good Italian restaurant attached to hotel.
Good location in downtown Minneapolis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VikesFans Beautiful hotel and exceptional staff
We look forward every year to our annual trip to Minneapolis and a Vikings' game. This trip was made extra special by the exceptional staff and beautiful accommodations at the Le Meridien! Whatever we needed (even ear plugs to block the snoring of my son!) the staff would rush to provide. Surrounding restaurants were friendly and served great food at great prices. We will make the Le Meridien part of every trip to Minneapolis. Highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by thomas13 What happened to the chambers?
The jewel of the city has lost it's shine. From the first impression to the last. The valets stood under the awning protecting themselves from the rain while my husband and i lifted our bags out of the trunk and carried them in. They did the same on our exit. The water had been shut down in the hotel and they failed to inform us of this upon checkin so were unable to prepare for the event we needed to attend. They then sent a poor inexpensive bottle of wint to the room to apologize. Slow room service. No one answered the phone when calling room service or housekeeping. Mediocre coffee and juice. Room not replenished with tissues when out. THe bright stars where a very few people like Gretchen, Celestine and a sharp young bartender at Marin and the food at Marin. Were it not for these people and the food we would have checked out earliier than we did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tscateh Had a great date night
Loved the contemporary design, warm bathroom floors!, windows that open. Found that the floors however make the rooms louder than anticipated. Water system sounds were louder than anticipated, and for some reason the sheets wouldn't stay tucked in on the bed. Otherwise, loved it. Roomy, comfortable, had a nice romantic vibe. Huge shower "room", which was very nice, great water pressure and lots of hot water, which I value highly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mplssales Great staff but...
The staff was wonderful. From the valet to the front desk and out again. However I was disappointed with the décor (very plain and stark) and the lack of standard amenities that I get in other hotels. There was no in-room coffee maker, the TV by the bed was not easy to see while lying in bed, room was small, showerhead had a slow water flow. Overall the bathroom was not well organized. I may be a bit critical but I expected more.

This is a gem of a hotel. Contemporary feel filled with artwork. The staff is extraordinary....friendly, informative and professional. John, front office supervisor, went out of his way to provide a tour of the hotel's art collection. Our upgrade was to an amazing suite with an equally amazing bath with heated floors. This hotel has given me a much better feeling about Le Meridiens in general. Will always stay at this hotel.

The Chambers Hotel is a unique find in any city. The mix of art, travel and city culture make this a great concept. I have stayed at the hotel many times on business travel. Given the choices of hotels in the Minneapolis area, this hotel is my favorite. The staff is very accommodating, my colleagues and clients enjoy meeting in the restaurant and bar and it is a short walk to all downtown business and cultural locations.

I loved the style and ambiance. The room was awesome. Very clean. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. My only complaint is that the bed was too comfortable. My wife keep yelling at me get up. It is also located near numerous great restaurants. If you want to stay at a place that is different than your typical boring hotel stay here. It's not perfect, but it's a pretty cool place to stay while in Minneapolis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by drtrotter74 Overnight Birthday
Stayed here for an overnight birthday celebration. I thought the hotel was nice. No inhouse parking garage was unfortunate, but the parking for $13 overnight was pretty typical. Would be nice if they provided free valet, but that would be pretty unusual I suppose. Only other comment is that I wish the wifi was not an extra charge. With the way technology is nowadays , free wifi should be standard in all hotels.

Loved heated bathroom floor. Need a towel hanger in the wonderful shower. Lots of little niceties, like a shoehorn reading lights are nice. Maybe more room for shaving kit and curling iron,etc. Great location, comfortable bed and pillows. Valet parking a little steep. Overall a great stay Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveldoctors0822 Wonderful stay with stained sheets
We were given a night's stay as a gift and loved the location, incredible breakfast, luxurious shower and wonderful featherbed. The multiple stains on the sheets almost killed the experience for us. If we had planned on more than one night or we'd noticed it before bed, as opposed to after waking, we may have called the desk. For an otherwise five-star excursion, this factor was really disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Deuce0725 Not worth the price
For over $400, this hotel did not deliver anything above and beyond what you can find for half the price. Not really sure what size the "king-size" bed really was but it didn't feel much larger than a queen. Room had uncomfortabl robes and did not have slippers (which it advertised). Our room had a view of a brick wall with loud trucks unloading in the alley below. Definitely overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lulubell7 Love the upgrade policy
My husband and I like to take the occasional "Stay-cation" downtown. We've stayed at many different hotels in Minneapolis and St Paul and have really enjoyed the get-a ways.
This time we randomly chose "The Meridian". Since I belong to their loyalty program I requested to be upgraded which they did for no additional cost. The room was a delight, we we had an exceptional room and time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JustMe10 Nice but lacks basic conveniences
Hotel and room was nice, and the bed was awesome. Cool sink and shower but not very functional, for me anyway (more art, less function). No ice machine on our floor. I tried to get a cup of coffee to take with me in the morning and they couldn't help me. I had to order it through room service for over $$. If you like modern, artsy, and unique than you will like this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rancher Totally unexpected in Minneapolis
Superb SPG recognition, incredible facilities, great location.
The fixtures in the bathroom are literally works of art, but not particularly functional. I never did figure out how to work the shower, but had a great time looking at it wondering how it worked. I took a bath.
Parking is pricey and front desk staff can be cold and incompetent in a "Minnesota Nice" way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BKKJ The best place to stay in the Twin Cities
Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis is outstanding when compared to other hotels in MN, and is also outstanding when compared to other Le Meriden properties. If you want a fantastic room and you want to interact with a professional and genuine staff, then this is the place for you. The associated restaurant, Marin, is a great spot for drinks in the downstairs lounge.

When we want to celebrate by driving up to the Cities and taking in a performance at the Hennipen Theater District, we like to stay at the Le Meridien Chambers. It is a very short walk to many dinning and entertainment venues. The vibe of the hotel is soothing, from the lobby to the rooms. Surprisingly quiet, given the location in the center of action.

The heated floor (bathroom) and fridge are my complain . Called the front desk to notify the issues and nothing was done. John express to me that it would be fix and maintenance will come. We was there for five days and the problem wasn't fixed.. I was a little disappointed with the staff. The heated floors were the reason why I booked this hotel.

This was our first stay at Le Meridien so we didn't know what to expect. The uniqueness was refreshing. The location was great, well within walking distance for many interests. The bed was amazing. We would really like to know what type of feather top is on the bed. We believe the pillows are Down Lite 50/50. Overall, a terrific experience.

We came to Le Meridian to stay for our wedding night. The concierge was dealing with a disgruntled guest ahead of us and was very accommodating and professional. The check-in was a breeze! The blonde who checked us in noticed it was our wedding night and even sent us a gift! It made our night even more special. We will definitely be back.

We selected this hotel for location to the play and restaurant that we would be celebrating at for New Year's Eve. We were very pleased with the staff and the accommodation and could not have made a better choice for a hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to have a great get away downtown Minneapolis, Thank you.

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.

We always have a wonderful time when visiting the cities and enjoy staying at Le Meridian. The staff are wonderful and very helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by anniversarygetaway Great bathroom; actual room felt like a budget hostel
With a view of a wall and a stark feel, the room itself was tiny and comparable to a budget hostel you'd stay at in Europe. The bathroom was lovely - blue tile shower with a rain showerhead - and a nice sink. It was a little disappointing overall for our anniversary getaway. Toilet was impossible to flush.
