A charming place to stay

Posted Mar 29, 2015
The Commons was a well-appointed hotel with comfortable beds, bright bathrooms, clean rooms and thick walls, all of which made for a very pleasant stay. The staff were courteous and amenable. We didn't take the opportunity to eat in the hotel restaurant, but that isn't a knock against it; the hotel is within walking distance to so many great places to eat. The adjoining parkade was extremely convenient and validation was a breeze. I highly recommend The Commons should you be traveling to Minneapolis.

Pros: Great location. The U of M campus right out the door. Downtown Mpls or St. Paul just minutes away on the light rail train. Rooms well decorated.
Cons: We had one bed with well worn sheets. Frayed end with holes. These must be retired right away.
Location: This hotel is ideally situated on the U of M campus. You can walk anywhere on campus Light rail right in front to take you to dwnt St. Paul or Mpls.
We came to Minneapolis for the Women's Ice Hockey Frozen Four Championship. The hotel was comfortable and well decorated. I would recommend and return.

Perfect location to campus and light rail

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Pros: Location. Lobby ambiance
Cons: Rooms could use better cleaning. Closet mirrors obviously not cleaned on a regular basis. Carpet in hallways worn and ripping
Location: Dinky town with local student breakfast stops
Touring the university with my daughter. Helpful front desk staff. If you want a hotel shuttle within 5 miles you need to wait if they already have a group scheduled.

Loved It!

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, Ambiance, Friendly Staff, Accommodating, Ease of parking and Shuttle Service.
Cons: Only the pillows
Location: Right across from the University of Mn. Everything was close and downtown was a short shuttle drive away.
I was very pleased with The Commons. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Loved how the hotel was decorated and it was very, very clean. Everything about this hotel made our stay simple and convenient. Lobby was beautiful, warm and inviting, Applebees and Starbucks connected, shuttle service was prompt and friendly. The only thing that I wished was different were the pillows on the bed-I had a hard time getting comfortable with the down pillows. However, I bet had I called housekeeping they would have brought in different pillows in a Flash! I will do that next time! GREAT PLACE TO STAY!
