    Ask for a corner room. Bartender Harley at The Living Room is awesome. the room mini bar is a bright pink, steel drum and is stocked to the brim (spirits, beer, soda, snacks, condoms and lube)

    The 30th floor observation deck is awesome. Check it out. It's open until 6pm every day, but open late until 9pm on Thursdays if you want to catch a sunset view.

    You wouldn't know it during the day but the lobby bar becomes a big party at night. The bartenders handle the stress very well.

    If you're a guest or happen to be near by, check out the observation deck on the 30th floor with 360 view of Minneapolis.

    Skip the hotel restaurants/bars. Hit up Hell's Kitchen, just down the street, for breakfast. Grab some local beers and a sandwich at The Local for lunch. Then close the night at Bar La Grassa.

    Floors 24-28 are all suits...if you're platinum definitely request any one of these floors...2nd best are the corner rooms! And don't forget the free Acura service!

    Evil Tip: when making a reservation request a handicap accessible room. They cost the same, but are about twice as big. :)

    Avoid the in-room mini bar. That $36 bottle of Maker's Mark can be had a block down at the liquor store for $16.

    Be careful about the parking meters around the hotel. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. If they don't, call 311 and don't just assume you'll be okay. This guy got a ticket.

    Good: free access to the viewing platform for guests. Bad: no free wifi for golds and poor overall gold recognition.
