                      Beautiful, old hotel. Very nicely maintained. Clean. Comfortable. Perfect, downtown location.

                      The airconditioning in our room was not working. I reported it at noon one day and nobody called to see if it had been fixed. It hadn't. We reported it again the following day and thankfully they changed our room.

                      Hotel is within walking distance (10 mins) of Nicolet Street mall, where the main stores are located (Target, Macy's, Marshall etc) but also the night life with lots of restaurants and cafes on the sidewalks. The hotel has perfect parking for seven dollars per day with as many in&out of the parking lot as you want. Breakfast is good, average 15 dollars/person. Room service is perfect. Flat screen TV. We used the swimming pool and sauna once. Wireless internet is slow, but free. My wife and I stayed for nine nights and enjoyed our stay.

                      I had trouble with all the one way streets and kept getting lost so had to make several calls to the front desk for directions and they were very helpful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable.

                      Apparently there are two sections to the hotel and the side I stayed in was a little less posh than the other side. It was serviced by an old elevator that was servicable but clearly not meant to impress. The towels were thin and I didn't get the sense of care and comfort I look for in a hotel. On the other hand, I was going budget and it was perfectly adequate for what I payed.

                      We loved the milk and cookies that were served at 10pm.... we also liked that the employees were very helpful. We decided we wanted a pool side room and the front desk employee let us switch from a king sized room to a room with two queeen beds with no upgrade charge! The staff was very knowledgeable.... they were able to tell us how far Target Field was from the hotel and if it was walking distance or not.

                      The room was great for the price. There were lots of comfy pillows and an actual comforter, not just one of those paper thin things which was great.

                      I could not seem to get the fan/cooling system to work.

                      When we arrived only one of three rooms was ready at 3:00 pm. The shuttle was very late and was not able to use it. All in our party needed to walk to Target Field. This was very disappointing as we were told it would take us at 5 pm. Being unable to get the Twins on tv was really uncalled for as not everyone in a group is able to attend a game. I would not recommend this hotel to prospects based on today's operation.

                      Pleasant atmosphere, graet staff, very helpful. Close to the Target Centre where we wanted to be. Very central for shopping at moa and others. Comfortable and clean rooms. Relaxing hot tub. Would stay here again.

                      The location is very convenient to downtown Minneapolis. The rooms are large and comfortable.

                      I was a bit cold and it was difficult to get the room to warm up.

                      The location near the theatre district and Nicolett Mall is great! we also enjoyed the gym facilities. The hotel was comfortable and excellent value for the price.

                      The service in the restaurant and at the front desk was very slow.

                      This was such a comfortable hotel. Our suite was beautiful and clean, and the bed was so comfy.

                      The hotel had no hot water in sunday until later in the day. We were up from wisconsin for the Packer/Viking game and we were unable to shower prior to the game.

                      Downtown close to Dome and target center, solved a lot of parking problems

                      The beds and the heating and cooling units need to be updated.
