I absolutely adore this property. I've stayed here several times and each is better than the last. The space itself is elegant and I really love the historical nature. The rooms are always very clean and many have been updated recently. Special shout out to Jae, he is truly a gem

No complaints outside of the bath towels a bit rough but with that being said I dried off pretty quickly. Food at the lobby restaurant was excellent. Had the chicken pillard one night for dinner and it did not disappoint. Serving staff very friendly and polished. Front desk staff

I had a need to visit the area to pick up my new passport. They offered valet parking and a lovely breakfast for very reasonable prices. Just a short walk to pick up my passport after a nice meal and a hot fresh cup of coffee. Valet parking made the entire process a breeze.

How far are you from the Grand Rounds bike trail. And can we store our bikes somewhere safe in the hotel or our rooms? Thx
We are just one block off West River Parkway which is part of the Grand Rounds. You are welcome to store your bikes in your room or in the bike racks on the interior surface parking lot. The Grand Rounds is beautiful in the fall!

What does a historical room look like compared to a regular room? Is there a picture of each?
Hi Leah- Photos of all of the different types of guestrooms can be found on the Marriott website. I'm not allowed to attach HTML or website links in this form but you have any trouble, just give the hotel a call at 612-375-1700. Thanks, Michael

"The historic room suites are absolutely beautiful and very vintage!"
"I was on the 4th floor. Very quiet. There were no rooms by the elevator which I think is great."
"close to the Mill wedding venue, close to the river for outdoor adventures, not far from the University. Ask for a view."
"Despite a city view, I would recommend against properties on the outside as there is a lot of city noise and very thin windows."
"Ask for room facing the depot or parking lot, rooms in front of hotel have city typical traffice noise"
