Prime downtown location

Good base for exploring downtown Minneapolis. Nice decor and atmosphere. Staff of variable quality and enthusiasm. Underserved by parking, i.e. burden of pay parking shifted to customers. Also, as of this writing Aloft appears to be assessing the charge already assessed by the booking site. Not likely to be fraudulent, but certainly annoying,.

Best choice for Minneapolis downtown stay

If you visit Minneapolis for a meeting in downtown, or University of Minnesota, this is a perfect place for you to stay. Free parking and paid garage parking, and even public transportation is super close. Also, it is very clean and nice looking hotel.

Not bad for a couple night stay

Not a bad stay here. Bed wasn't the most comfortable. Kind of a small room the way it's set up.

One Night Getaway

My hotel experience was pretty good. Staff was nice and helpful. The bartender working the night of May 10th was super nice. She maintained conversation and good customer service. Room was nice. The shower leaked water out of the door so each time there was a puddle. #425. I told the desk clerk the following morning.

Decent place

The room was cozy and the atmosphere was great. I did not like the rude staff. The prices at the bar were also ridiculous.

The ALOFT was highly recommended and didn't disappoint. It is "minimalistic chic" and I enjoyed my stay very much.

Very satisfied

Only thing that needs improvement is parking. very little available close and then choose from road or little bit of walk from parking ramp. Other than that everything was great I would certainly book there again. shuttle service and cab rides to and from all the events we went to were so quick. love the modern look.

Business Trip

Once I entered the hotel, I was very pleased with the modern look and feel that it had. The staff was very nice. I got to my room, nice set up but very small. I went to use the restroom and there was urine all over the toilet seat. I was very disgusted. Unfornately, we checked in hours before check in time, there were no more rooms available. They sent someone to clean the restroom room right away. Overall they hotel is just okay. I honestly wouldn't stay there again.
