It was a very pleasant experience. As my daughter says 10 out of 5 stars. They were very helpful and accomodating. They let us check-in 3 hrs early (but no late check-out). It was clean and quiet. Great location. Walking distance to everything. Thanks for everything!

Friendliness

I must say the entire staff was gracious. The employee Yatta in cafe stands out. She made my day at breakfast on Monday sharing life experiences. The Hotel needs to take care of her she is exceptional. The doorman are very nice and welcoming.

An evening in Minneapolis.

Pros: It was in a great location and the hotel was nice
Cons: Very long waits to get on an elevator.
Location: We took an Uber to surly brewery for supper then went to a show at The Varsity theater after dinner.
The hotel was quite nice, especially for the deal we got on it. The rooms were plenty large, and the extra sink outside of the main bathroom was a useful touch. We didn't hear anyone out in the halls making noise late at night or have any problems. I do have two small complaints. I think they must have been down an elevator because it took 5 plus minutes to on an elevator when we were attempting to leave for the evening (which is less than helpful if you have an Uuber on the way), and then again the next morning when we were checking out. My other small complaint is that the parking garage is quite narrow. I drive a full size F150 with a super cab and was able to navigate around but entering the garage and getting up to the parking floors was a hairy situation. So just a warning to those who dirve a full size truck, go slow and watch all sides as it gets pretty narrow on the sides (and above) Other than that the stay was great, and the hotel was very nice.

My stay

The staff was very helpful, friendly, and youthful. They had excellent knowledge of the city and what has happening around them in the city. The only thing I didn't like was how the hotel doesn't validate parking. They have a parking ram distinctive to the hotel but guest have to pay for parking aswell as their room. I understand it downtown but duplicate hotes in surrounding cities has free parking. It should at least be validated because people travel and are on budgets plus that forces people to find street parking and talk their luggage and whatever else blocks. That's not ideal for traveling guest. Staff was awesom in hope they are there when I come back in a couple months.

Very friendly staff!

We went on a mini honeymoon and stayed at the Crowne Plaza. Our room was upgraded and the staff was so friendly the entire stay. The man at the front desk even remembered our name and room number without asking!

Pros: Quiet

Great hotel. I wish they had free wifi... I asked for it, but when you reserved the room discounted (along with your flight ticket), you have to pay for internet.
