Minneapolis, Minnesota
Reviewed 3 January 2015

Lovely older hotel, kept well. Skywalk access helps with the winter weather. Quick check-in with some missing amenities expected from a higher end hotel. Doorman, in hotel bar and restaurant were nice touches. A little pricey and morning coffee in the lobby would be a nice touch.

Visiting this hotel flashes back the 60's...Norhstar was epicenter for young ad exec's and airline jet-setters. The hotel still has cosmopolitan appeal, and a romantic ambiance. The guests have grown both older, and younger -- but share the desire for a "real hotel" -- for this hotel evokes a quiet dignity -- a glimpse of a bygone metropolis. The practical...

Not worth the price - and I used a Groupon! Not a single amenity available, not even a glass of water on check-in. On a Sunday morning they didn't offer coffee even though there isn't an open coffee shop within 3 blocks. Rooms need updated, beds are hard, and the place is NOISY all night long. I woke up at...

Very impressed with the rooms and location. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel, I would definitely stay here again! The bar/restaurant downstairs was cozy and had good food. It was a bit noisy at night, but you are downtown so that's to be expected.

Reviewed 23 December 2014

Our room was very clean and inviting. I didn't have a backache in the morning, which was great. The bed was very comfy! Another think I noticed was, I didn't hear the neighbors showers or toilets flushing. Most places we stay I do. Very friendly staff, and got a groupon rate. Will definitely stay here again!

I've stayed here on business a couple of times and had good experiences every time.

Ideal for both business travellers and people who just want to see the city. Highly recommended!

The Crowne Plaza is in an old building downtown - a great stay in a traditional environment. The fron desk staff were helpful, offered me an upgrade to a corner room on the 15th floor - great view of downtown. Easy walking distance to a variety of resturaunts.
