Rated 3 out of 5 by Luckee6 Great bed
My husband and I stayed at the Meridian because of its 5 star status and a show at the Orpheum theater across the street (we live about 5 miles away). We also wanted a luxurious night away from kids.
First, the bed was plush and extremely comfortable and was topped with the extra pillows; which, I requested, I'm 8.5 months pregnant.
Second, the room and bathroom were clean, and the bathroom floors are heated, which was a very nice home away from home feature.
Third, everyone at the front desk and in the bar and restaurant, were all quite friendly and my husband enjoyed his drinks at Marin.
HOWEVER, these are my cons:
First, the food from room service, which as I understand is made in the restaurant, was under seasoned/bland/tasteless. The chef seems to be trying too hard at originality, but should really focus on good taste.
Second, the food selections were minimal, I understand having a small contemporary menu but, more than one sandwich option after 11:30 pm would be nice. I dont know how hungry someone needs to be for a $27 turkey and avacado sandwich.
I recommend eating somewhere else or don't stay for the food service.
Third, the housecleaning staff began knocking at 10 am to clean (checkout is noon) and did this 3x total from 10-11:30am. Unnecessary! My husband and I were quite annoyed by this.
All in all, it was average, I expected much more: better food, more than 3 towels, a better view, and whatever happened to free coffee? I think I ate a small bag of $3.00 sunchips because the late night food options were terrible. I almost ate the $6.00 candy bar but couldn't justify it...... JUST, weigh your other options, there are a lot of hotels in the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Manju Best Stay Ever!
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 had a wonderful time. We called ahead to ask for an early arrival and the staff was great and got us in as soon as we arrived. The room was fantastic. The service was wonderful.
We will stay hear again and again.

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 Eyespysuz Great City Location and Comfort
Felt immediately at home because of great staff! Everyone was very friendly and helpful "above and beyond" duty. Restaurant staff was fantastic also--great service and attitudes all around. Even though I am not a great tipper, they STILL treated me with outstanding courtesy and service.

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 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 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!

I now frequent this SPG property in Minneapolis because of the great rooms, the affordable rates and the restaurant. The gym could use some updating but besides that, a gem in the heart of Minneapolis.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovestennis1 This hotel covers ALL of a traveler's needs
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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
