The Hotel Minneapolis, Autograph Collection
What We Love
- This former bank headquarters reeks of wealth: marble columns, the elaborate vault door, high ceilings, a huge, welcoming and stylish lobby
- Midwestern hospitality is for real – the staff could not be friendlier
- Minneapolis gets bitterly cold, but thanks to the downtown Skyway system you can stroll from your room as far as eight miles without ever setting foot outside
- Rooms are large and very well appointed, completely updated with great work desks and connectivity, large flat-screens and spacious bathrooms
- First-rate amenities: 24-hour fitness center, room service and business center
What To Know
- Because it is chic and perfectly located, the hotel is popular with wedding parties and family reunions on weekends
- During the work week it hosts a more austere business crowd
- Downtown Minneapolis is a business area and not especially appealing after hours
- If you need a cab, especially to the airport, call ahead, as they’re not often lined up outside; taking the light rail is a cheaper and more convenient option
- Valet parking is $30, but there are several cheaper garages within a couple of blocks
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
This remodel was only opened 4 days before our arrival according to one of the managers. This appeared to be correct as everything was in very nice condition, from the lobby furnishings and hotel carpeting to the condition of the room. There was a very refreshing and comfortable ambiance to the whole lobby, restaurant and lounging area. The previous bank architecture of marble columns and vaulted ceilings were in contrast to the wooden furniture and see through fireplace in the lounge area. The Spyhouse coffee shop was nestled in the back of the lobby area surrounded by an area five times the size of your local Starbucks with intimate seating areas, the see through fireplace and several cushions throughout. The bar area and restaurant were also very clean and offered an interesting offering of cocktails and wines. Speaking of wines, the manager showed us one of the conference rooms which used to be a vault complete with the original doors with no serves as a wine storage. Only a couple detractors were: 1) the pillows our room. The bed was extremely comfortable; however, the pillows were so thick they gave both of us very stiff necks. In their defense, we did not ask for any other pillows so were not sure if they were available. 2) There was no on site parking, nor reasonable parking service/valet. The cars were parked a block or so away so retrieval took a while (15 minutes calling ahead) and it was expensive (at least by my standards) at $45 a night. Nonetheless, it is located in downtown Minneapolis, close to many attractions, such as U.S. Bank stadium and numerous places to eat.
All in all, I did enjoy our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
This hotel was formally Hotel Minneapolis. It has been renovated and is beautiful! I was given the history by Brandon (who was awesome). At one time it had been a bank and the marble pillars are still in place. They are stunning! In the remodel they added nice wood pieces and there is a lot of seating throughout the lobby and 1sr floor. The staff and managers were great. You can tell they are proud to be here!
Our stay at the Hotel Minneapolis was superb. The rooms are clean and mondern, the location is right down town, and the service was remarkable. I wanted to leave a shout out and a big thank you to the receptionist Elizabeth for truely making us feel welcome and our visit to the city outstanding. We will definitely be staying there again!
Very nice hotel. The hotel has just been updated with new lobby and guest rooms. The room was very spacious and clean. the only draw back for this hotel is that the don't have on-site parking unless you use valet parking.
We have stayed there twice now. It's a nice clean good looking Porter Hotel which seems to be almost an icon down in that part of the metropolitan area the rooms I've always been clean nice beds very comfortable friendly staff maybe our only complaint is the food and drinking down in the metropolitan area is no longer affordable best thing to do bring some alcohol with you for your room I have a problem paying over $10 a drink we would stay there again nice walking distance from US Bank Stadium
