Overview

Prime downtown location
Inconsistent customer service

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.
