We held a meeting at this location, on the 50th floor. The service, the views and the location was outstanding. We had a few meeting rooms, a room for breakfast and lunch and an area for breaks. It was well run and would highly recommend!

It's basically a generic 1970's style skyscraper with a chain store Court thingie. Only for completists.

Built in the early 1970's, this building anchored the entire skyline of downtown Minneapolis for a couple of decades. Tall, dark, and monolithic, the style of this building is reminiscent of the same building designed by the same firm that highlights the Dallas skyline. The...More

The IDS Building is very unique from an architecture standpoint. The inside of the building has an interesting water feature and the all window interior is unique and very pretty. Inside you will find a park like setting with benches and trees to relax on....More

I had the opportunity to visit IDS Building reaching the last floor. From there I could see how the other skyscrapers in Downtown were so smaller, from that height I could admire the entire area around Minneapolis. It was fun and very suggestive!
