I have been there twice for business trips. Had very positive experience both times. Rooms were clean and reasonably sized, bed sheets and towels were spotless, and the surrounding area offers a wide range of dining choices.

Hotel room was ok, not great. Seemed like it had been wiped down, not cleaned. Could hear EVERYTHING the people in the room next door said and did. We booked via Hotwire but had to give our credit card for incidentals. We wound up with two $15 charges and one $5 charge from the hotel. One of the $15 charges... More

The staff was wonderful and smiling, pleasant and helpful. Bed very comfortable and the room modern in detail. Also quite spacious for a King bed room. Elevators were very fast for an 8 floor hotel that was full on this Saturday night. Great place to stay for any U of MN activity.

My most recent business trip to Minneapolis lasted almost exactly 24 hours, so my stay at the Commons was brief but memorable. Almost every aspect was positive: the common areas and room were nicely furnished and very clean, and the front desk staff were extremely helpful, accommodating, and friendly (check-in and check-out were both unusually pleasant experiences). I was allowed... More
