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
We chose this hotel because my mother needed to have a bathtub in her room. The bathrooms were lovely and she was very happy. The rest of our party had a room right next door (which Loews was awesome about arranging, I very much appreciate that) and it was nice and comfortable enough, with an amazing view. We were in town for Thanksgiving, and had to eat at a restaurant for the big meal. I left a message about a potential reservation, and did not get called back until 48 hours later, and by then we had made arrangements elsewhere. That was very disappointing service. All other services were wonderful: valet, concierge, front desk. Having a starbucks next door is great, and the walkway to other shops is helpful. I am still insulted that they offer $9 Fiji water...REALLY? Also, the only fridge is attached to their mini bar, which we did not even get a key for (our choice) because who wants to be tempted by $10 M&Ms?
I wish we would of found this hotel 1 year ago. My husband suggested a spa weekend and found the Embury Spa located in the hotel. Our daughter lives in the cities on Hennipen so we decided to give it a try. Great corner room. As I was looking out the window I realized we were 3 blocks from our daughters apartment. We could see her building. Once a month for a year we have been staying near the Mall of America when we could of been staying here. Only complaint was when we got the bill I did not get the spa credit for the spa room package and was charged an additional $525 spa services. The girl at desk didn’t understand what I was saying and went to get help. Thank goodness he understood we were overcharged by the spa and weren’t given the parking credit either. So when checking out make sure you look over charges.
Stayed here for event at State Theatre. Two hotels bars but also right next to Kilens Irish bar and connected to City Works so lots of options for drinks within 1 minute. Attached to Target center as well. Parking lot across the street to save on valet charges.
A little confusing that hotel guests have to take a set of public elevators to the 4th floor then private ones to floors with the rooms. But then high enough that even low floors have a decent view.
Starbucks in the lobby as well as a small shop for pastries and coffee as well as a restaurant with a nice buffet for breakfast. Rooms a good size with coffee makers, tv in the bathroom and ample number of pillows and robes for lounging.
Spa we did not use but gym nice
On site, valet parking was great.( not included or listed as an option on tripadvisor). It was the first cold snap of the year and after entering the front door we didn't have to go outside the rest of the trip. No coats!!! The staff was awesome the room was clean and the view was great!!
I am not very familiar with downtown Minneapolis but chose the hotel on Hotwire based on the # of stars listed ****.
I was pleased by the choice of a Lowe’s property. I have always found their hotels to be top notch and was not disappointed in this one as well.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff and the rooms were decorated so fresh and on trend . Loved the shower water pressure. Had a late lunch and the waiter was delightful . Best chicken and wild rice soup I’ve ever eaten .. the portion was also so big it was more than a meal by itself .
Would definitely stay stay here again and would recommend to others .?
