I stayed here for about a week while attending a workshop in Minneapolis. The location was fairly decent, staff was friendly and nice and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was average though!

I would agree that this hotel is very clean. the condition of our room was clean but tired. the bathroom is very small but again clean. We were there for a Friday and Saturday night stay. One big downside is that on weekend they don't start serving breakfast until 7:00 AM. We needed to be on the road to our...

I know that you are under construction but the rooms you are renting out are terrible. The carpet in my room is covered in stains. All the walls are beat up. After a couple of days I realised they were just replacing my towels and making my bed. Floors and everything else left unclean. I mean just shut the place...

Very convenient to where I needed to be with a fair price for what was offered. Yes I agree with the WIFI comment the others have, it was not the greatest and I also thought it was a bit rude to be kicked out of the breakfast area at 9:30. sharp. I have stayed in quite a few hotels with...

This Holiday Inn was a good place to stay. I arrived in Minneapolis 3 hours before check-in and had to meet coworkers elsewhere downtown. The front desk had my room ready and let me park before check-in time. Continental breakfast was good as well. I can only give 3/5 as I had a later flight out the next day, and...

If we ever go to another event in the cities this is where I will be booking! Great value, great breakfast. The rooms smelled great and the staff was ever so helpful. Pool and hot tub was nice maybe add a few more tables 😃. I would give it 10 stars if I could thanks again for the hospitality!

Good hotel, with very good bed room and great location. But the breakfast was not up to the mark. I always thought American Hotels provided very good Breakfast.

We had a quick over night stay. It was an easy check-in and pleasant staff. I thought we'd have a noisy night when I realized our room was at the top of the stairs, but NO! We had a great, quiet night sleep. Adequate and enjoyable breakfast before walking across the street to the Convention Center. Perfect.
