Our room was very pleasant, clean and had everything we needed. The parking was handy and having the light rail right at the corner was very convenient. It is convenient if you are involved with something at the University, but also close to either downtown.

This hotel has a great website that makes you believe you're heading into a hipster boutique. For example, the landing page of the website promotes a fireplace with books and a cozy "library" which is actually right inside the sliding front entrance doors of a large and open, well-trafficked lobby. So much the opposite of cozy that I never saw... More

We stayed at this property for the weekend. The photos are not a good representation of the property. Hallway carpets were filthy and the room was not clean. The woodwork was literally falling off the wall and the blinds were dusty. The room was very hot and I had to make several calls to the front desk for them to... More

Hotel was clean. Pillows small and mushy. The on campus location was not good for me. There was not much too see around but college bars etc. I was actually served in plastic at the bar at check in night because it was a game day. I eventually got a glass for my drink from a sympathetic bar tender. The... More

My husband and I love the Commons Hotel when we go to U of M football or hockey events or just hang out in the Dinkytown area for really good music and dining. It's within walking distance to TCF Bank field and Mariucci Arena and is on the light rail line which takes you from Downtown Minneapolis to the Mall... More
