Crowned Plaza never disappoints us. Room service, front desk are top notch and great location if you like to walk and enjoy downtown Minneapolis. Parking is $$ and a possible discount if you are quests at the hotel would be nice. Otherwise, we will be back.

Stayed here one night on 11/12/16. Were going to a Timberwolves game and didn't want to drive all of the way home. When checked in asked for skyway map or any kind of map to find our way to the Timberwolves game. Front desk agent stated they were out of maps. I found this surprising, it seems like maps would...

This room was super. It was on a corner on the 13th (!) floor with windows looking both directions. The bed was comfy, the bed covers were elegant, the extra down blanket was cozy, the sitting chair was comfy, the bath was large, the closet was big too. The iron and hairdryer worked. Down sides: no breakfast included, no fridge...

Upgraded to the Northstar Suite (room 720) because of my Spire status! No problems with the suite...clean, spacious, and comfortable. Only issue I ran into was my credit card was declined upon check-in for no reason whatsoever (I called my card company immediately and there was nothing wrong with my card or account). No reason from hotel or credit card...

The hotel itself is beautiful. The lounge area is very cozy and relaxing. I cannot speak for all rooms but the King room we had on the executive level was very clean and neat but very small and walls seam to be paper thin. I stay in hotels around 10 nights a month and I don't think I've stayed in...

I thought the rooms were clean. My suggestion is a fan in the bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. Generally it suited my purpose. I wish they left more coffee packets in the room as coffee is not served in the lobby. Other than that I had a good stay.

This is a good downtown location but older hotel and rooms are just OK. Very clean but small and older style. One bonus is nice inner courtyard which is a good outdoor space to relax and gave a drink. Check in and out easy and staff friendly.

This is an old hotel that shows its age in every aspect: rooms with dented, dusty, damaged furnishings; HVAC system that doesn't cool well in summer; bathrooms with no outlets; Venetian blinds on the windows. If I didn't have to stay here for work, I wouldn't -- and you shouldn't!
