    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!

    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.

    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)

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • Stephen K.

    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.

    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

    Here's a standard king room.

    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
  • Katie C.

    Phil is the best bartender!

    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
