Rated 5 out of 5 by jerry60 Great Location
Stayed here when we went to the Orpheum Theater, which is right across the street !! The room was quiet and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge with both a tub and a rain shower. And the staff seemed to be very concerned about our enjoyment. I'll be returning.

WE DROVE TO MINNEAPOLIS EARLY IN THE AFTERNOON TO AVOID AN IMPENDING SNOW STORM AND THE TRAFFIC PROBLEMS THAT WOULD INVOLVE. WE CHECKED IN TO AN UPGRADED SUITE WHICH WAS DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE THEATER WHERE WE WOULD ATTEND "MAMMA MIA" LATER IN THE EVENING. AFTER A GREAT MEAL IN THE MARIN RESTAURANT ON SITE, WE WALKED TO THE THEATER. THE SHOW WAS GREAT! WE STAYED LATER THE NEXT MORNING SO I COULD USE THE FITNESS CENTER, WE COULD HAVE A DELICIOUS BREAKFAST IN OUR ROOM AND WE COULD DRIVE HOME WITHOUT RUSH HOUR INSANITY. GREAT HOTEL! WONDERFUL STAFF! WE'LL BE BACK FOR MORE!

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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by briand Great property for business or pleasure
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 2 out of 5 Very disappointed for $300+/night
This hotel came as a recommendation from a friend but honestly if I would have known what I do now I would never have stayed there. I was expecting more amenities as this was a chic place. There isn't a pool, the rooms were not clean (we found private hairs everywhere in our room), bathroom/shower were worse than a 2-star hotel/motel. The bed was harder then a rock, there was "used" pillows and comforters that had love activities remaining on it. Overall, we hated this hotel. Our 5 year anniversary was still special but we just ensured not to be at the hotel. Very disappointed and will probably never recommend a this hotel again.
