Close to target field

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Really a nice place to stay with a couple exceptions. There were 4 elevators and only 2 were in use. After the twins game it took 15 min just to get on an elevator. There were no locks on the bathroom door. Never been to a motel with no locks. Otherwise, close to target field and i would stay again.

Updated style

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: Clean, comfortable, contemporary.
Cons: Back-ups at check-in desk and non-working elevators.
Location: Very centrally located in downtown, between Hennepin and Nicollet avenues. Try Il Foro, across the street.
The recent update to this property means it is very comfortable, with contemporary style. Be aware that some rooms have interior windows only, with no natural light and - in our case - a corridor immediately outside the "window." Also, elevators were partially out of commission when we checked out, making for long waits and crowded cars.

Modern hotel, nice rooms , but no daylight windows

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: style- very modern
Cons: faucet in the bathroom was leaking, looked old and cheap.
Location: downtown location, close to Target center and restaurants
Our room was facing courtyard inside the hotel, so it was dark day and night.

Right in the heart of downtown

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Stayed at the Blu so we could walk to a concert at Target field. While the Blu is handy for downtown activities, it is overpriced for the size of room. Overnight parking was reasonable, and yes, I'd probably stay there again.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I'm sorry you thought your stay was overpriced. Typically we match our rates with the competing market and also due to events and activities going on downtown, the rates do escalate when there's a lot of demand. I'm pleased to read that you would stay with us again and we'll do everything we can to exceed your expectations the next time you're with us. Thank you again for your business and we hope to see you again soon.

A little pricey, but top notch

Posted Jul 25, 2015
Pros: Everything.
Location: It's in the downtown area, so if you are doing things there, then it's a perfect place to be. Most of my Uber rides were $5.
Everything about this hotel was great. The room was super clean with absolutely no kind of hotel odor. The bed was amazing and the bathroom a pleasure. Everything you need is in the room and the breakfast wake-up service is a god send if you are busy or just really lazy.

Within walking distance of Target Field.

The staff were courteous and professional. The hotel was very clean. Great restaurants within walking distance. Target Center, Target Field and shopping were all within walking distance of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Modern and fun

Posted Jul 19, 2015
The room is super modern with cool tones and pops of color and art . Only negative would be when it is storming the building sways and you hear a creek, but other than that the location is great and everything is perfect !

Near Downtown Fun

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Comfortable bed, great security
Cons: no ice machine or vending on our floor
Location: Close to First Avenue, Target Center, Target Field, Mill City nights, Nicollet Mall.
Stayed in downtown Minneapolis to attend a concert at Mill City Nights. Radisson Blu was the perfect location, near everything.

Meh.

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Wifi hardly worked and the walls were paper thin. Won't stay again.

The room was clean and the staff were helpful. I was disappointed in that there was a huge white thing taking up half the window. Also, the bed was hard and uncomfortable. Glad I had a discount, otherwise would not have stayed here.
