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.

The room was fine...not exceptional and perhaps not worth the price...but fine. We were there on a Friday night and overall the place was pretty dead...so if you're looking for peace and quiet it's great but if you're looking for fun you'll have to go off the property. The Chambers Cafe and the Ice Bar were both dead all night long...saw only one table actually having dinner. We attempted to get food after midnight as they advertise 24/7 room service. We were told by the person who answered that all that had was an old turkey sandwich and recommended we order in from somewhere else if we wanted decent food. I appreciated the honestly but I would expect a place like this to be able to offer something decent for their guests no matter what the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Traveller Le Meridien Chambers Stay
Positives: Stayed in the Luxury Suite - fabulous room for the price, and great night desk staff. In the heart of downtown nearby to plenty of things to do, as wells as in-house art, and other things to experience, etc.
Negatives: Slow/inattentive valet service, and was misquoted the price on an in-room couples massage we received. When I stopped by the desk in the morning to mention this as I felt bad not having the correct cash on me to give the massage therapists the tip they deserved, the disgruntled morning staff person, an older woman named Sara, who informed me she was the manager, dismissed me and said that was simply not possible (implying I just made up the price?), even though I had double-checked the pricing with two different staff members prior to our stay.

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.

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.

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.

We are so sad that D'Amico Kitchen is no longer the restaurant. Marin is not good! Very disappointing.

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 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 Gonzo500 Not a typical boring hotel. .
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.

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.

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 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 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!

I loved this hotel. Its an ART LOVERS DREAM. I was upgraded to the only PENTHOUSE SUITE. WOW! HOW AMAZING. This was a dreamy suite totally beautiful. It has the BEST SHOWER EVER. It can mesmerize you. The staff was super duper friendly and I am very grateful to them. ART LOVERS YOU JUST HIT THE POWERART JACKPOT AND MATCHED ALL THE NUMBERS ON YOUR ARTY TICKET.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Campos64 Bed extremely comfortable
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.

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.

Check in at reg counter could be faster and more friendly.
The hotel seemed to be under staffed.
Great rooms, valet service and food.
Room service seems limited.

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 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.

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 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.
