Overview

Arty minimalist glamazon for techies, oenophiles and cocktail lovers

The Lowdown

Unerringly chic, the art-filled interiors of this downtown Minneapolis hotel come courtesy of cult favorite design firm Yabu Pushelberg. Enter through a soaring lobby of coppery walls and striated marble floors lit by glowing lantern-like sculptures grounded in metal cubes. The 225 guestrooms come correct with high-tech mod-cons like 42-inch plasma TVs and state-of-the-art entertainment systems. The on-site restaurant, Cosmos, features a 5,000-bottle wine cellar and classic American dishes like chicken and dumplings. And with 24-hour room service, it’s possible to order a pork belly sandwich as late as 2 a.m. Night owls will enjoy the Prohibition-era libations at Bradstreet Craftshouse, and entertainment seekers just need to stroll across the skywalk for arena concerts and Lynx games at the Target Center.

In the Area

In the heart of Minneapolis’ bustling downtown, the hotel is a prime jumping-off point for exploring the Twin Cities. A short walk or bike along the pedestrian-only Stone Arch Bridge will land you in the Theater District, where independent companies like the Guthrie stage such classics as Pride and Prejudice. Stroll through the 11-acre Sculpture Garden, where hundreds of candlelit mason jars illuminate more than 40 original works like the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry every Thursday night in honor of the garden’s 25th Anniversary. Hark back to your mall rat days at the 4,200,000-square-foot Mall of America in the South Loop, or visit the boutique-lined Grand Avenue in St. Paul for local handicrafts and jewelry at Bibelot and high-end kitchenware at Cooks of Crocus Hill. Kick back with local hipsters with slow-roasted pork sandwiches and a glass of sangria at the Creole-style Brasa Rotisserie or go haute with foie gras meatballs at James Beard award-winning chef Isaac Becker’s 112 Eatery.

This is our first time staying at a Loews hotel and it was very comfortable and this location is close to many pubs, restaurants and sports venues. The rooms have a modern decor and feel. The bed and pillows were comfortable and there is a nice size desk space and plenty of outlets throughout the room. The little chair in the room was not really a man size chair, but at least there was one. The bathroom sink area was a little lacking on counter space but the shower area was very roomy. There was also a blow dryer that was actually powerful which doesn’t happen often in hotels. We have spent a few nights having a drink in the Releve bar and they have a great cocktail selection and comfortable atmosphere. The valet staff are hard working and open doors for you and have happy dispositions.

Family friendly hotel in a great location
