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

    This place is classy as fu(k. A great place to bring a date. Dress to kill and your sure to wet your rocks.

    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.

    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.

    Stephen Koontz · September 7, 2014

    Gorgeous city views from the observation deck!

    Best hotel in MN if you are into anal and blumpkins

    Moe Kharrazi · November 3, 2013

    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.

    Travel Minneapolis in style with the Acura experience; reserve your complimentary ride with personal driver and enjoy a new 300-horsepower Acura MDX stocked with signature W extras.

  • Mike B.

    This is the "Living Room" in the lobby. Great place to hang out and throw back a few cold ones.

    Mike Beauchamp · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    Here's a standard king room.

    Mike Beauchamp · September 16, 2013

    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.

    Mike Beauchamp · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    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.

    Mike Beauchamp · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    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.

    Mike Beauchamp · September 16, 2013
  • Katie C.

    Phil is the best bartender!

    Katie Chapeau · September 14, 2013
  • Sandy

    Request a room on the bottom floors. The rooms on the upper floors are significantly smaller.

    The water pressure is higher in Sub-Saharan Africa. Leave time for a long shower.

  • Kandayce G.

    Excellent customer service! Everyone so friendly and serves your every need! Worth the price!

    Kandayce Goddard · August 25, 2013
  • Jerry D.

    This place is way too dark! It's cool at first, but gets old and impossible to deal with after the first 15 minutes

    Jerry Darko · August 4, 2013
  • Jake S.

    You get free admission to the Foshay Tower Museum and Observation Deck if you are staying at the hotel.

    Jake Smith · May 20, 2013

    The best place in town!

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

    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)

    Ivan Villafana · July 8, 2012
  • Le D.

    Patron in the mini bar... Enjoy!

    Le Doan · June 7, 2012

    The lobby bar is crazy on Friday and Saturday nights! Live DJ, dance music, and wall-to-wall people... we had great time there at a wedding after after party!

    Allie · April 29, 2012
  • Chris T.

    One of the best hotel's Minneapolis has to offer. Whatever/Whenever service is on point. I can not say enough great things about this place. Prepare to be wowed!

    Chris Thill · April 24, 2012
  • Bill C.

    Don't expect an upgrade, even if you have top tier status. They try to sell them.

    Bill Cash · February 21, 2012
  • Lindsay C.

    Daily happy hours at both The Living Room bar and Key's Cafe

    Lindsay Carter · December 15, 2011

    Overpriced but the original mojito is delicious. It's topped off with champagne!

    Natalie Olbrantz · November 6, 2011

    Shitty wifi much?

    Kyle Chester · October 4, 2011

    Check out the upstairs bar "Prohabition".....great views of the city!

    Robin Robinette · September 13, 2011

    Used to be a fun scene - then went on my bday - chick barfing in the ashtray in the entrance and too-crowded bar with some not nice women
