We live northwest of St. Paul and had tickets for the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, a great gift from our son and daughter-in-law. We had booked the night at a hotel in St. Paul, based on their promise that we could schedule their complimentary shuttle as it was within their range. When I called to schedule the shuttle, however, I...

We have stayed here before and had been troubled by how easily we heard people in the hall and in other rooms. This time we were on a "quiet floor" and it was a remarkably different experience. We had a beautiful corner room with windows looking two ways over the skyline and it was blissfully quiet. We will return!

Helpful staff, friendly but professional, convenient to convention center, all needed amenities, inexpensive town car when we used it, good restaurant and room service, everything clean and working properly (a rarity in even expensive hotels).

This hotel is right in the downtown, close to different food options, and transportation. However, the Walgreens around the other side closes at 830pm and the convenience stores in the bottom level mall close even earlier. So do get those things sorted earlier in the day. Whole Foods is a few blocks away as well. The room was clean and...

this is not where you want to stay to get a restful nigh sleep. Furnishings were decent. location is good. Overnight front desk staff not the most inviting. The exercise facility leaves much to be desired.

This hotel is located not far from everything in Minneapolis, from night life to transportation. The staff was amazing, and the room very nice. It even induced a safe and refigerator. The only issue is that the room was very cold. I turned the thermostat way up and it would get warm, but just for a little while. Highly recommended.

A well done-up Northstar hotel updated to Crown Plaza standards. Nice lobby, restaurants, and bar. An adequate executive lounge is a nice amenity for those with the proper IHG status. All around choice hotel for business/family/leisure travel alike.

Great location, lovely hotel and delightful staff! I stayed here while on a visit for my blog and all expectations were exceeded. Would highly recommend and definitely would stay again. Great location if you like walking instead of taking a car. Close to public transportation.
