    4.5-star Hotel Class
    Class and comfort have a permanent home at the Hyatt Centric Downtown Minneapolis. Recent guests commend the hotel's historic exterior (which dates back to the early 1900s) and its contrast to the modern furnishings inside. Rooms are luxurious (boasting wood and leather furnishings and 55-inch TVs and minifridges), while the two-story, 7,000-square-foot fitness center features an indoor running track, among other amenities. After working up a sweat, quench your thirst by grabbing a refreshing cocktail and dinner at The SIX15 Lounge.

    Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    The Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown meets the standard of the average downtown hotel, and then adds some extras to make your stay even more comfortable. Free use of the large fitness center and Wi-Fi are definite pluses, as are guest room amenities like large work desks, iHome stations and Lavazza coffee. The hotel's friendly and attentive staff members also receive high praise. But according to some visitors, this hotel's real charmer is its direct access to the city's climate-controlled skywalk, which allows you to hit the town without having to worry about cold or rainy weather. If you prefer a night in, reserve a table at the Radisson's FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar. Recent guests do note that on-site parking is pricey, but thanks to its Radisson ties, Radisson Rewards members can save a bit by putting points toward their stay.

    The Marquette Hotel
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Just up the street from Target Field (home to the Minnesota Twins) and surrounded by a bevy of big-name department stores, The Marquette Hotel is perfect for fans who have come to the Twin Cities for a baseball game, business, or pleasure. The area has numerous eateries and bars to mingle with locals, though if you're not feeling up to a night out, you can satisfy your appetite at the hotel's Basil's Restaurant. Guests note that the nightly rate at this hotel is quite fair, unlike other downtown properties. The hotel's friendly staff and roomy accommodations, complete with Egyptian cotton linens and coffee and tea makers, also earn a thumbs-up. The biggest downside, according to recent visitors, is the fee for in-room Wi-Fi; the hotel is a Hilton property, though, so Honors members receive complimentary Wi-Fi and can use points for upgrades and free stays.

    W Minneapolis - The Foshay
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    Like most W hotels, The Foshay specializes in sleek, contemporary lodging. But this property is different: Housed in Foshay Tower (which was built in 1929 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places), the hotel blends vintage with modern in its decor. Common areas like the hotel lobby and the Living Room lounge feature W's swanky style with a hint of art deco flavor (though some visitors complain that the dim lighting is hard on the eyes). Recent guests described The Foshay as classy, praising the guest rooms for their bold color palettes and ample amenities, which include flat-screen TVs, media libraries and Bliss bath products. For a true taste of the Roaring Twenties, sink your teeth in to a hearty steak at Manny's before relishing a crisp cocktail at the rooftop bar, Prohibition. Though recent guests raved about the The Foshay's appearance and amenities, they said that the excellent customer service would be their main reason for returning. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hilton Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    No surprises – that's what recent guests appreciated most about the Hilton Minneapolis. And in the hotel industry, dependability counts for a lot. You can bank on spacious rooms with signature Hilton products like Serenity beds, ample business services and friendly customer service. However, some guests mentioned that the gift/snack shop is a bit on the expensive side. As well as the basics, this hotel boasts some desirable extras, including a pool, a hot tub, a sauna and the Skywater restaurant. Meanwhile, the Hilton Minneapolis' proximity to the convention center and out-of-office amenities make this hotel an ideal pick for business visitors, while sightseers will find themselves just steps from the Walker Art Center, the Guthrie Theater and the Stone Arch Bridge. Because this hotel is a member of the Hilton hotel family, Honors rewards club members can redeem and earn points here.

    Le Méridien Chambers Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Part art gallery and part boutique hotel, Le Méridien Chambers Minneapolis combines the trendiest elements of the contemporary art scene with sleek luxury. Visitors most appreciate the property's contemporary ambiance and eye-catching aesthetics. The decor in the guest rooms is a hit – simple white, gray and black hues offset by vibrant pops of color (and amenities like iPod docking stations, LCD TVs and heated bathroom floors). However, less-enthralled visitors have complained of some nighttime noise, and it's not hard to see why: This 60-room urban enclave is stationed downtown in a neighborhood peppered with galleries, restaurants and nightlife venues. Should you prefer to stay in for dinner and drinks, sample the Italian fare at Marin Restaurant & Bar. No matter when you visit, you'll have free access to the on-site Burnet Gallery and the Walker Art Center, about a mile away. And because this Le Méridien is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hotel Emery, Autograph Collection
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    The Hotel Emery impresses the eye with rich furnishings and sleek decor. Guest rooms are fairly simple, decked out in neutral tones, but feature high-tech amenities like 42-inch high-definition TVs, wireless internet access and docking stations. Meanwhile, common areas like the lobby and Restaurant Max feature bold accents and modern fixtures. But the hotel's locale really sets it over the top: It's connected to the city's indoor, heated skyway system, so you can walk to Nicollet Mall, the U.S. Bank Stadium and many other downtown Minneapolis attractions without weathering the often frigid temperatures. One area where guests offer mixed reviews is the food: Some travelers experienced helpful and quick waiters while others said the service was slow and overpriced. As a property in the Autograph Collection, The hotel is part of the Marriott family, so Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points here.

    The Westin Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Though it may look old on the outside – after all, it is housed in the historic Farmers & Mechanics Bank building – The Westin Minneapolis provides fresh, contemporary digs in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. Blanketed in beige and green hues, guest rooms offer a relaxed, natural respite from the bustling city streets, while in-room amenities (like 42-inch LED TVs, minibars and Westin's signature Heavenly Beds) are designed for comfort. When you do decide to leave your digs, you'll find a variety of on-site facilities, including a heated indoor pool, a fitness center and a fully loaded business center. And the in-house restaurant, B.A.N.K., receives high praise from previous guests for its swanky atmosphere and inventive American cuisine. The biggest complaint, however, is that the hotel seems a bit understaffed, especially at the front desk and at the bar. But whether you're here for business or pleasure, recent visitors do say that The Westin Minneapolis' downtown location is ideal, especially since the hotel is directly connected to the city's indoor skywalk. Because this property bears the Westin name (and ultimately falls under the Marriott umbrella), Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Recent visitors rave about the on-site Northern Shores Grill and friendly staff, but are not happy with the hotel's pricey parking fees. The hotel's location, on the other hand, is extraordinary: You'll find yourself just a few blocks from the Nicollet Mall retail area, as well as the city's trendy Warehouse district. This Marriott property's prime real estate and high-reaching stature lead to spectacular views from rooms on the higher floors.
