This was a nice and easy stay for us as a family. We had an event at the convention center just one block away, easy walk. The hotel was older but just fine for our needs. Kids enjoyed a swim in the pool. The fitness room is small but if you just need a quick workout it'll do the trick....

Business stay for those on budget this is ideal location. Room is comfortable and nice. Free WIFI. Not far from the conference centre and it is just 5 minutes walk. Also 10minutes walk from the main train/tube. I would stay there again!

This hotel is old, it has some dust on it, but they maintain it well. The location is clutch, and for the price you won't beat the hotel. Unfortunately you will get locked out at night and you have to have them let you in. On the plus side, breakfast is good, the fitness room is good. Cleaning staff were...

A quick weekend in MSP, stayed at the HI Express because it was within walking distance to my event- most metro hotels do not offer free breakfast or a microwave in every room, this place does and it's refreshing!

This hotel was great. I only stayed because all of the park/sleep/fly and park/fly locations were booked, and they were near the ramp I was parking my car in while I travel. I chose this hotel because of price, it was the cheapest in the downtown area. All of the front desk staff were amazing, the breakfast was great, free...

If you're looking to dazzle someone, this might not be the ideal hotel, but if you're looking for a clean, really reasonably priced, central hotel with a fantastic included breakfast definitely consider this place. The breakfast was delicious (definitely have a cinnamon bun or 3), a basic pool, workout room, and business centre are available as well. Really nice and...

I stay in over 200 hotel rooms a year so feel somewhat capable of providing a review on hotels. This one is ultra clean, has a great breakfast and maybe the friendliest staff of any hotel I go to. The Manager, Mike, may be all the reason's for the success here. I would recommend this place anytime and my recommendations...

This hotel is in need of a deep cleaning, a lot of furnishing/fixture upgrades and some hospitality training for the staff. The staff at the front desk, in the breakfast room and the cleaning staff all seemed completely indifferent to our presence. No friendly greeting, no friendly nods, in most cases, not even a glance. At check-in the front desk...

I enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn Express location throughout the two nights. There was no issues with my room and the staff were great. I personally saw great value for the price, You can walk to the convention center from the hotel location in 10 minutes.

Book the hotel very early in the year, and we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were both tired as we had travelled for over 19 hours so just wanted to eat shower and then go to bed.
