The location is fairly incredible. It is perfectly centered between Downtown West and Downtown East. My experiences with the room quality has never been great. Something is always dirty or broken. But, it is never anything to make the stay intolerable.

It didn't start well when the reception staff were so unfriendly. Our room was ok but the hotel is old and poor. The corridors were old and in need of repair. I did not feel comfortable walking around the hotel on my own. The hotel had a unwelcome feel and I would not return. Location is ok and car parking...

First of all the location was perfect. Got off the light rail and right into the hotel. Very convenient. Plus, it was in walking distance to a lot of restaurants that I wanted to go to. Music is important to me so I walked to the Dakota Jazz Club which wasn't very far. The room was a little small but...

There was only one person working the desk for check in and took a long time to get through the process. When I arrived to my room there was no coffee maker or fridge. Would have expected that for the price. Also when I laid down on the bed the headboard came off the wall with a bunch of dust....

This is my second time to stay at this very nice hotel. Friendly staff, beautiful room with a comfy bed! Nice bar and delicious breakfast. It's within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, night life and US Bank stadium (home of the Vikings!) we will definitely return!

The front desk staff are very friendly. The room was clean and very nice. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, the staff in the restaurant were really friendly. The hotel was convenient to the light rail and some of the sights I wanted to see.

If I could give the Crown Plaza Downtown a half a star I would have rated it 2 1/2 stars. The rooms are fine, dated but clean. The bathrooms are small (it's downtown after all) but the space isn't used effectively (pedestal sinks). I can hear every noise going on on my floor and also above me. Stomping on the...

We stayed here because we were guests at a wedding. The rooms were disappointing. The bathroom is so small you had barely a counter to rest a toothbrush on, the tub/shower was small and cramped, and the toilet ran off and on the whole night! We notified the front desk of this problem when we arrived, but nothing was done....

This is crazy. There is a jackhammer in the building going on past 8pm. Not only is it loud but each room shakes. I made the mistake of staying here 5+years ago and they were doing renovations then with the same issue. Bottom line is that it is an old building and while the rooms may have some updates because...
