The staff were helpful, the rooms were nice. We were put on a "quiet zone" floor. It was bliss

It's been almost 3 years since I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Downtown - Northstar. Since then the construction down the side street has been completed so the traffic flow is very good now. The hotel is as I remembered it. Generous size rooms and right in the middle of downtown. Better than the last Minneapolis hotel I stayed at. It was May so the temperature was quite nice in Minneapolis so no need to use their Skyway although it is quite convenient.

The location is great if you want to go shopping since all the stores are only blocks away. There are also quite a few good restaurants also within walking distance. Tried out a very good seafood restaurant called Oceanaire that I would definitely recommend. It is only a few blocks away. Also tried an excellent steak house, Manny's, which I would also recommend and it is even closer than Oceanaire.

The rooms were up to my cleanliness standards and everything in the room was working properly. The TV's and programming were updated since the last time I stayed which is nice. The Krona bar and grill continues to be a good place to wind the day down. Service there is very friendly as I remembered.

Front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is located within an easy walk or very quick taxi of anything you could want to do downtown. The rooms are very comfortable. The only downfall is the lounge area is pretty small but it is an easy walk if you want more active nightlife. I would definately stay here anytime I go back to downtown Minneapolis.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

I stayed here for only one night on business. The room was very spacious, and the "sleeping" portion of the room seemed updated, nice flat screen, nice comfortable bed. It was nice there was a bathroom with pedastal sink and then another sink in the room in the portion where the closet was. The bathroom seemed to be older, in terms of tiles and updates, but it was very clean and well maintained, so no complaints.

The location is perfect as there are a lot of cool restaurants and bars in the area, the fields are also a short walk or train ride away.

Another tip is to take the train from the airport downtown. Quick and $1.75! No need to rent a car, pay for parking, etc.

I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza Downtown before, but this trip was especially wonderful thanks to fantastic customer service from the hotel desk staff. Anita chatted pleasantly as she checked me into the hotel, and she upgraded me to a lovely corner room! She also gave me complimentary breakfast coupons, recommending her favorite choice. I've always enjoyed the Crowne Plaza, but this professional, yet warm and engaging, interaction really made my day!
