    Radisson Blu Mall of America
    Bloomington, MN
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4279 reviewsTripAdvisor (4279)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Connected to Minneapolis' famed Mall of America by a short indoor walkway, this Radisson Blu outpost beckons to shopaholics seeking a convenient place to hang their hats. But even if you're not looking to partake in retail therapy, you can still take advantage of the wide variety of entertainment options found inside the shopping center, including comedy shows and roller coaster rides at the Nickelodeon Universe theme park. Or you can steer clear of the mall altogether and enjoy the hotel's indoor pool, fitness center, FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar and 24-hour room service. Guests consistently praise the Radisson Blu Mall of America's comfortable rooms and homey feel created by calming colors, cozy beds, personal refrigerators and flat-screen TVs. Past visitors also applauded the attentive hotel staff, which they describe as particularly friendly and resourceful. Another bonus of choosing to stay at this Radisson property: The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to and from the nearby Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. What's more, Club Carlson members can earn and redeem points here.

    The Westin Edina Galleria
    Edina, MN
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 479 reviewsTripAdvisor (479)
    Free Parking

    For shopaholics, the best part about The Westin Edina Galleria is that it's directly connected to the expansive Galleria shopping center, about 9 miles south of downtown Minneapolis. For everyone else, it's the friendliness of the hotel staff, though the hotel's design and amenities have also garnered praise. Guest rooms are spacious and adorned in soothing nature-inspired hues, and they feature flat-screen TVs and oversized bathrooms with both a walk-in shower and tub (a major perk for most visitors). Though you can choose to spend both night and day in your room thanks to 24-hour room service, previous guests affirmed that you won't want to pass on a meal at the casual on-site steak and seafood restaurant, McCormick and Schmick's. For small plates and cocktails, head to Prelude. (You can always burn off the calories in the on-site pool or at the fitness center.) 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-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1744 reviewsTripAdvisor (1744)

    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.

    The Westin Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1199 reviewsTripAdvisor (1199)

    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.

    The Marquette Hotel
    Minneapolis, MN
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 307 reviewsTripAdvisor (307)

    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.

    Hyatt Regency Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2372 reviewsTripAdvisor (2372)
    Free WiFi

    Location, location, location. The Hyatt Regency Minneapolis gives you just that: Prime downtown real estate. But aside from their love of the locale, previous guests express mixed feelings about this Hyatt property. Some rave about the friendliness of the hotel staff and the cleanliness of the facilities, while others complained about the high rates for parking ($42 a day). Though the recent renovations and the presence of on-site amenities such as a heated indoor pool, a fitness center and the Prairie Kitchen and Bar help to ease sticker shock. No matter if you opt for a room or a suite, you'll find all accommodations are equipped with Hyatt's signature Grand Beds, flat-screen TVs, iHome stereos and coffee makers. If you are a Hyatt rewards program member, your stay here will help you accrue loyalty points.

    Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2046 reviewsTripAdvisor (2046)
    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, Club Carlson members can save a bit by putting points toward their stay.

    W Minneapolis - The Foshay
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1406 reviewsTripAdvisor (1406)

    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.

    Marriott Minneapolis City Center
    Minneapolis, MN
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 954 reviewsTripAdvisor (954)

    With smiling staff members and clean rooms, the Marriott Minneapolis City Center has its bases covered. Accommodations are spacious and feature amenities like iPod docking stations and Internet access (for a fee), while business travelers will find a wealth of professional services and more than 42,000 square feet of meeting space. 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.

    Hotel Ivy, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Minneapolis
    Minneapolis, MN
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 360 reviewsTripAdvisor (360)

    Every traveler wants a clean, comfortable space that's large enough for relaxation. The Hotel Ivy offers just that. Recent guests commented on the ample size of the guest rooms, which are decked out in neutral tones with orange accents and feature amenities like 42-inch flat-screen TVs and spacious bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. And the bed, the item of central importance to any overnight stay, receives nearly unanimous praise for its comfy feel and luxurious linens. What's more, the hotel's Ivy Spa Club will help you feel refreshed and ready to check out the things to do around Minneapolis. Additional on-site amenities at this hotel include a fitness center, an Italian restaurant and meeting facilities. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
