The hotel is located in a beautiful area of Minneapolis--just a nlock from a spacious park, The Guthrie Theater and a couple of blocks from a gorgeous and peaceful river path and the St. Anthony Main Bridges. We felt very safe but I will note that breakfast options in the area are limited right now due to the pandemic. It seems many spots within walking distance are temporarily closed. Still, there are plenty of options within a short drive. Trader Joe's is also just across the street, which is a nice bonus.

From the moment I arrived … until the moment I departed, my experience at aloft was enjoyable!

Buena localización. Cerca del aeropuerto. Buen manejo del asunto del Covid 19-

Gym and pool are very nice but unfortunately couldn’t use them due to state restrictions (not the hotel’s fault). However, the lack of hot water and lack of room cleaning was ENTIRELY within management’s control. Don’t pre-pay for a stay because if you need to check out early because you can’t use the shower due to lack of hot water, you will not be offered a refund.

The help at the front desk was AMAZING!! I love to stay at this Aloft when I am in Mpls.

Friendly staff, walking distance from US Bank Stadium and Light Rail.

Not your fault. We use valet a lot and room service. The lack of a microwave anywhere was weird. Very convenient for the Falcons game so that was a big plus. Thanks

Great location, especially if you are heading to a Vikings game. The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make your experience pleasant.

Staff was friendly and room was clean. Very close to the U.S. Bank Stadium. The only negative was the food. All they had was prepackaged sandwiches and salads, yogurt, fruit, ice-cream and snacks. Not a sit down restaurant, but there are restaurants right across the road.

We stayed for University of MN move-in. While not the closest to the U, it is still pretty close - an easy couple minute drive or even walk/run/bike. There was ample street parking as well, which we used instead of the lot across the street. We had a rate that included a breakfast allowance, which was good, but the food items were pricey even considering this was a high-level property. Hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful.

Nice hotel in Minneapolis. Very close to many attractions of the city. Clean hotel with friendly staff.

The rooms were clean, not much information in the room about services provided. Could here the city traffic through the night time hours so didn’t sleep the best. Depends on what you are used to.

All n All, a solid experience and one I hope to repeat soon!

The layout of the room is terrific. Only average size, but very functional

We have stayed here before with no issues but this last time was a nightmare. We got to the hotel and checked in and went up to our room. We walk in a there wasn't two queen beds like we booked but one king bed... for 4 people?! We called the front desk and long story short they told us that anyone who books off site gets booted into different rooms if need be. We asked for a roll away and they said they were out. A few hours go by and we go to a show then come back and ask again for a bed and they said that we should've asked for one earlier (which we did!!!) and then proceed to tell us that they are out of blankets as well. So now our 10 year old son is stuck sleeping on the floor, being super uncomfortable. The front desk staff was not friendly or helpful. In fact in the elevator there were several other people very upset and complaining about the exact same situation we were having. Shortly after getting home my wife realized she forgot some medication in the room and called the hotel, talked to the front desk, which transferred her to housekeeping which she NEVER heard back from. Very disappointed. We really liked the location but after this we may never be back.

Good experience. Please consider changing to regular Heinz catsup. The catsup there is terrible. Also I checked out on a Monday and requested a 1 hour late check out. This should be easy to accommodate, but the front desk representative just dismissed my request without even really checking with houskeeping or anyone. A starwood preferred guest should be able to get a 1 hour late check out on a Monday. Sad.

Check in was easy and quick. Room was trendy and exceptional clean. Was worried about the bed when I saw but we slept great. Was also worried about walking around the area after dark but pleasantly surprised by how safe I felt. Parking is minimal but there’s a parking ramp next door which was $14-16 for a 10-12 hour park. Never had a problem finding a spot. I included breakfast in room charge but I wouldn’t do it again. You’re allotted $20 each morning for 1 adult 1 child but 2 breakfast choices end up equaling more than $20. My 9 yr old wasn’t too impressed with the choices but the pancake and berries choice was the best for her. Food was very good though. Hotel was bustling on a Saturday night in the bar/lobby and surrounding bars/restaurants. Pool area small but very nice and clean. We will definitely be staying here again!! Very impressed!!
