Kind of disappointed

Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: Bed was comfortable. Location.
Cons: Cleanliness, amenities.
Location: Loved the location. Down town close to restaurants and target center and vikings stadium.
My husband and I pick a hotel in the cities to stay at a few times a year. This trip we decided to go a little fancier for valentines day and splurge on one of the more expensive hotels. For the price, I was so disappointed. It was one of the smallest hotel rooms I've had. I requested and paid for a room with a view and got stuck in a lower room with a view of a wall right next to us. The wallpaper in the bathroom was pealing off, there was someone else's hair literally stuck to the coffee maker, and the carpet just looked dirty. Compared to any other hotel I've stayed at up there, it just fell short. Didn't even have a place to go purchase snacks or breakfast in the morning unless you ordered room service for $17 or went to their attached restaurant. And $22 for parking for a single night?! Excessive. Will not

Great staff, decent room

Posted Feb 14, 2017
The woman who greeted us was excellent and friendly. She remembered us the next day that she forgot to give us our parking voucher and even left a VM in our room. The connecting bar was also great. The room was clean- just felt a little old and had some wear and tear from time.

Very Nice

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness and coffee, room was great.
Cons: They need to work harder on keeping the homeless from approaching the guests and threatening them. Could use outside security.
Location: The mall is accessible via skywalks. Should provide a map
It was clean nice. Bell hop was amazing, restaurant had amazing food and front desk was very nice. Big tv lots of channels. Work space great. Room service spot on. Quiet, thick walls no sound from surrounding rooms. Heating and air was perfect, easy to work. Tons of pillows. Lots of towels and they were large. In 9 days I never left but to venture to Wlagreens just a short walk through the skywalk. Other than outside safety was covered. It was overall very nice. I will be here three more times this year.

Walking distance to Target Center & Bars

Posted Jan 29, 2017
2 parking garages close to hotel. Check in went fast and smooth. Comfortable room within a couple minutes walking distance to Target Center. Local bars were all within a block of hotel. I would stay there again.

Well appointed hotel in advantaged location

Posted Jan 14, 2017
Pros: Large and very well appointed rooms. Not overly busy. Not loud in the middle of the night.
Cons: I'd examine the marketing strategy between the hotel and Fire (the restaurant accessible through the Radisson lobby).
Location: Convention Center, Orchestra Hall, Target Center, Target Field.
The Radisson Blu in downtown Minneapolis is in the heart of the business district. All of the banks, accountants, law firms and their supporting contractors are within a four or five block walk. That walk is entirely within reach through the (heated) skyway system so, even when it's -8 degrees outside (as it was yesterday morning), one needn't venture out. On the other hand, when it's warmer outside, the hotel is within walking distance of the Mississippi River and its riverfront park. The workout room is more than adequate and I never found it to be too busy during my stay. My only concern is the marketing synergy with the in-house, street level restaurant there by the name of "Fire." For example, energy bars and apples are in the lobby for consumption, but only UNTIL Fire opens at 6 am. I understand why that's the case, but if Fire is unable to succeed unless the hotel guests are deprived of an energy bar, it speaks loudly to a marketing effort in tension, if not conflict, with the better interests of the hotel's patrons.
