A Crowne Not Fit for Royalty

Nov 24th, 2019

The Crowne Plaza is a "venerable" downtown Minneapolis hotel, which is Latin for “Wasn’t this a Hyatt in the 80s?” The two stars are for the young man at the front desk, who was polite in a way that would make his mother proud; and for the the lobby bar whose alcohol is an able sedative if you’re planning on sleeping. The hotel is owned by the Marcus Corporation, known for a chain of cinemas in the Midwest. This is fitting, as I had a better sleep at a Marcus theatres showing of The Thomas Crowne Affair than at their Crowne Plaza property. 

The primary issue is noise, from the plumbing to the thin walls. A message to the man in 903: your new girlfriend has a lovely baritone speaking voice. Also, I hope you enjoy a surprise. And to the woman in 907, 5 hours of drunken dry heaving may be a sign of a substance abuse issue. 

About the bed. Why is it so hard to provide a decent mattress. Also, why is it so HARD? I awoke with the joints of a brittle 90-year-old woman. The Crowne Plaza has a Marie Kondo approach to bedding. If the comforter and blanket no longer spark joy, throw them out. The guests will appreciate the simplicity of a threadbare sheet and thin bedspread. 

There are plenty of other lodging choices in downtown Minneapolis, who understand that this is a simple exchange: I pay you money and you lend me a place to sleep that’s appropriately sanitary, includes some measure of comfort (a blanket, perhaps?) and, for the love of all that is holy and good, some peace and quiet.

Another disappointment in downtown Minneapolis

Nov 20th, 2019

Dated, rundown needs a cosmetic uplift. The staff was extremely nice which made things better. Rooms were okay but common areas have lots of worn spots. Booked for 2 nights and only stayed one. Very inconvenient elevator system where you are to swipe your room key to use it. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Stay away from this hotel. Mr. Cruz is fake, phony pretense of niceness.

Just stay away from this hotel. Mr. Cruz is fake, phony pretense of niceness. He is so unprofessional. If you are tax exempt he will treat you like a cheater and then you will find tax charges on your bill. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Decent but dated

Nov 2nd, 2019

I stayed at this hotel close to a week while on business. The hotel is well located for much of the downtown area. Check-in was efficient enough, the room of an okay size and clean, and the staff generally attentive. However, I will deduct a star for the general state of the room. It seemed tired, with plastering coming loose from the ceiling among others. It also feels a little too basic in its design at times. For example, the bathroom merely features a pedestal sink and nowhere but too super small spaces in the wall to leave toiletries. On the upside, the hotel bar is nice, and being able to get food until late a great plus. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Ideal Location Downtown

Oct 24th, 2019

We have stayed here a few times to visit the Dakota Jazz Club which is walking distance, as is a lot of restaurants, bars, and shopping. It's a very good value for the location and there is a public parking garage attached that they offer at $25 nightly. The rooms are typically small for a downtown hotel, but comfortable and clean. This property could use updating and the club lounge is minimal, but overall recommended. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
