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.
How to Get There
Right across the street from the famous First Avenue where Prince filmed concert footage from Purple Rain. It's also walking distance to the Target Center and a few blocks from City Center shops. The transit is about a block away and can be seen out the window. You can ride the train directly from MSP to here. I have stayed here a couple of times. The only thing from my last trip, I called down to get courtesy tooth paste 15 minutes before check out. By the time I got back to my room...they had already canceled my access back to my room. So I had to ride the elevator all the way back down just to get a whole new room key since the other was totally deactivated. They apologized for that but it was kinda stupid. Other than that.. I would stay here again. They also brought me a small refrigerator to my room for some cold drinks I had at no charge.
I called three times to get my refund. (i actually called 4 times, but was told to call back). The first time I called they said it would be 3-5 days to take off. That is fine, I called back after 6 days was told sorry it is 10 business days and to call back. Fine, I called a third time was told only a manger can help and to call back next day. Fine, I called back was transferred to the fiance department and was told 20 business days but better just to have your credit card company dispute the transaction. Not one was I asked my name or how they could help. Just call back. I have stayed at many hotels in many cities, states, and all over Canada and have never had to wait 20 days to get a refund of the incidentals that were not used. No, we did not even touch the refrigeration with the items in it.
Prepping for a wedding takes a lot of hands.The staff at Loews is top notch when they helped loaded, delivered, pampered and made all the details of a wedding so much easier to achieve. Friendly and courteous no matter what time of day or how many times were were in and out. We have stayed in many hotels and we sleep well but the staff at the Loews let us rest easy. They are outstanding! High fives to the Loews Staff.
Awesome place with friendly staff. Hotel is within walking distance to Target Field. Very clean and nice hotel. It provides everything you could possibly want and then some! We would definitely stay here again.
We were given a prize from work that included an overnight stay at Loews. It was fantastic to be right down in the heart of Minneapolis and yet so peaceful. The accommodations were top flight. Totally enjoyable.
