Hotel has been updated and the room was very nicely done. I had a quiet night, comfortable bed. Good shower and bathroom. I had a very good steak for supper in the hotel restaurant. One criticism, on the second day of the conference I ran up to my room for a wash up just after lunch and found my room...

My husband and I stayed here over Easter weekend. The place is clean and new. Really a beautiful hotel. What was the breaker between 5 stars and 4 stars was the towels. Only one bath towel per person was provided. When I take a shower I always need two--one for my hair and one for my body. Whenever I have...

We wanted to stay in the downtown area of Minneapolis and this suited our needs just fine. The staff were friendly, the rooms were nice and updated. The parking was a little on the pricey side, but I guess it fits for downtown. And the breakfast buffet was just ok, nothing special food wise. But overall a nice place that...

We stayed here for two nights to go to a doctor's visit at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. We were pleased with the room, the bed, and the staff! We got a great AAA rate when we were there by booking online. The negative is paying for parking. The concierge lounge staff was amazing especially Jerry at breakfast. He...

Stayed with my son for a night to run the Hot Chocolate race (excellent location which made it convenient for walking to the race course in the morning!), and had not stayed at the hotel in years. The ambiance of the lobby was classy and modern elegance, and the room was very nicely appointed with incredibly comfortable beds and bedding....

The Renaissance is a convenient location in downtown. Easy walk to Target Center. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. There is on-site parking for easy access. Outside we enjoyed the firepit and lounge areat. I would stay here again without hesitation.

My wife and 2 kids recently spent 3 nights at this hotel. The newly renovated public spaces are great and we had dinner 2 nights in the Milwaukee Road restaurant as well as drinks in the bar. The room was very nice and accommodated the 4 of us very well. We used the pool every day. The staff was very...

We stayed one night in the historic wing. Our Room was beautifully decorated, quiet and comfortable. We had snacks at night and breakfast in the morning at the restaurant. On the spendy side, but food was superb. Staff was great as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

Just checked in and received the most wonderful welcome from Shawn. A few minutes later we arrived at our room to discover the guests next are planning a late/fun night. To help all involved have the best stay possible, we returned to Shawn and asked if we might be placed in a different room. He didn't hesitate to do so...
