My husband and I stayed here two nights as leisure travelers, as it was our first trip to the twin cities and we wanted to be right in the heart of downtown. We were very pleased to find out that Nicolette Mall was one block away! Although the majority of the Mall is restaurants and chain stores, it is a...

Very nice staff, rooms, and breakfast. The location is good. Close to Target Field and Center. Not close to Viking's temporary stadium at U of Minn. but will be again when they move back. If you are driving be aware the parking is not included and is not cheap.

this hotel is located 1 1/2 blocks from the convention center. It is also convenient to quality restaurants. the staff really go over and above in assistance. the rooms are very well appointed, and clean. Great value. the breakfast area is quite small and can be quite crowed at various times. Food selection could be better.

I thought the breakfast would be like any other breakfast at any other hotel. What surprised me was the you could take the food to your room or you can even get it delivered to you. I decided the eat my breakfast in the breakfast bar and it was amazing. They had such a wide variety of food to choose...

This hotel is very clean, professionally operated, has a very convient downtown location, and very modestly priced. I had a good stay and will stay again as the location downtown is much more convenient for me than comparably priced hotels further away. Parking is also affordable. That said, I would like to say that this hotel experience is more of...

Right downtown, parking is available adjacent to the hotel for $15/day, easy to walk everywhere downtown. The hotel is contemporary, clean and efficient. Our room was on the 2nd floor overseeing the parking lot (no view!), an enormous King bed, nice bathroom, little bar area with a mini-frig with separate freezer & a microwave, a nice work desk and the...

I stayed six days at this hotel while attending the APA 2014 Congress at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The only problem I had was upon check-in. I had just arrived around 5:30pm from the air port after a long trip from California, they had my reservation which I had made months in advance through the APA travel agency. When I...

great place. close to convention center and nightlife. Pleasant staff well run hotel. The only thing that would be better is an arrangement with the city parking garage for being able to charge the parking to the room bill for expense reports

Holiday Inn Express is a great little hotel. A 5 minute walk from the convention center, and very close to the SkyWalk. The beds were very comfortable, with a choice of soft or firm pillows. The tv was a flat screen with a great variety of channels. Ice and vending machines locate on each floor, and a fantastic breakfast buffet....

An easy, inexpensive place to spend a night or two for business travel. The hotel is clean and has good breakfast options. The location is convenient, and it is fairly easy to walk to downtown. There are not a ton of cabs in the area, so don't expect to grab one easily. I would recommend for a short business stay,...
