My son and I stayed here for 4 days.  We were in town for his hockey tournament.  The hotel was very clean, the rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable.  The lobby is very cozy with many sitting areas and the restaurant had a great social atmosphere.  Food was good too.  The front desk personnel were very friendly.  I was on my way out and my son needed a tissue (he was fighting a cold). I went into the 24 hour store to buy a travel pack and they didn't have them. So I went to the front desk and asked for a couple of tissues and I was given a box of tissues.  I offered to pay for them and she wouldn't accept pmt.  This is only one of a couple examples of the employees going above and beyond.  I will definitely stay here again.

I was there for a Toyota training. I thought the lobby was beautiful so I took a few selfies for snapchat. I was soon approached by a security guard and informed that I was "making other guests nervous. " I said "You're right, someone smiling and taking selfies in front of your beautiful surroundings would make me nervous too!" Maybe they should clearly post a sign that says "no photos! cell or other allowed inside the Marriott." I was embarrassed, and felt like this was a non issue. I would recommend clearly posting things like this if you want to enforce them. I appreciate management reaching out to resolve this in a timely manner. More...

Our accommodations we're fantastic. The room was comfortable. Great night's sleep in the bed. This might sound quirky, but everything don't to the heating and cooling system was top notch. I feel a little spoiled.

From the first day I visited I knew this was going to be where I would get married the hotel has so many different ballrooms that you can pick that fits whatever size wedding. We got married July 30th 2016 and it truly was the best day of our lives, Virginia, and the staff is absolutely amazing to work with! Thank you again for an amazing day! More...

We held a celebration of life in one of their presidential Suites for our friends and family. The staff bent over backwards thanks for making us feel so welcomed. At the end of the day the note that they sent to us along with a fruit plate. Now that says it all! More...

I was here for a convention (not a wedding), so my review is of the people and hotel/exhibition facilities - they were awesome.

The rooms are very large, the mattress was nice and firm with high quality pillows and comforter - they were a great value. All the employees I dealt with where extremely pleasant, professional and accommodating.

If you're here for an event, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the great variety of meeting spaces and the high quality meals they can provide.

My only complaint? My Buffalo Trace bourbon was a little over priced.

Will definitely be back.

t spent the night with my kids at this hotel, to escape some construction debris my husband made. I don't have to tell you--this hotel is deceptively mum-looking from the outside. It could not be nicer, cleaner or have better people on staff. I was there with my 3 children, and they could not have been more accommodating. I do recommend bringing your own food/drinks (unless you're willing to pay 5 dollars for a large bottle of Fiji Water and I have no doubts the hotel has great food if you really want it. However, the coffee shop inside? Well worth it!) Mini-fridge is provided, and it was mega-clean! at 108/night for a double room? Very, very competitively priced! (Checkout is 11A as is the standard at most hotels/motels). More...

My husband and I just had our wedding ceremony and reception there on Saturday. The room was beautiful and clean. Alyson, the coordinator was awesome and knew when to be there at the right moment with calming reassurance.
The staff were so welcoming and absolutely wonderful during my reception. There is one lady that works up at the front desk that stayed after she done with her day to be at the ceremony and congratulate us after we walked down the aisle as husband & wife. She is so wonderful, kind, and sweet!! The Marriott is so lucky to have such a great person on staff.
The food was delicious and my guests all loved it.
The only downside that had me freaking out a little was how late they had started setting up my ceremony area and I had yet to still get it decorated. (Queue Alyson with the perfect timing and calming reassurance).
They made sure that all the guests staying there knew that the ceremony was going to be going be happening. I guess we had an audience of hotel guests (I didn't notice but some of my guests and wedding party told me) watching the ceremony from all over. I hope that they enjoyed the ceremony as well!!
Thank you Marriott and all of your staff for being so welcome and wonderful on our big day.

I really enjoying staying at this location.  I travel to MN a lot for work.  My company has a plant right down the street, so it's very convenient. I gave it only 4 stars because the price per night is all over the place sometimes.  I know supply and demand and all but it's a bit disappointing knowing I have to stay within a certain budget.   Sometimes it's within budget and most times not.

Marriott always come through!  Clean and comfortable rooms.  The bathrooms have plenty of countertop space for your toiletries and the shower has a ledge to rest your shampoo, conditioner, and other items. The rooms are CLEAN; a huge plus!There is a Caribou coffe shop in the lobby (yay!).  Breakfast and Wi-Fi are included with your room charge.  Their onsite restaurant is yummy without being overly pricey.  I had the roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and it was delish.The staff is extremely nice and help you with what you need, even before you ask.  How do they know?  Seriously, super nice and friendly.There are some large events here; when in the suite, you can hear the noise in the front room which is more of a living space.  Cannot hear the noise in the back room which is the bedroom.Thanks Marriott!

Love, love, loved the Marriott! Fell in love with the venue walking in. We wanted a hotel venue in the Northwest suburbs of Minneapolis and this was a perfect fit! Even my fiancé said, I didn't have a vision but now I do and this was it. Prices are very reasonble and well within our budget. Loved the food options for the big day. The staff was excellent! They have three event rooms to choose from to host your big day. Hotel rooms are all suites for your guests - which we loved! Plus the presidential suite you get on your wedding night is unreal! Highly recommend checking them out if you are wanting an elegant, classic wedding! More...

I was here for a wedding, and the banquet hall was very nice. It was well organized, with well trained staff. The catering staff was attentive to details and my water glass was always full. Staff was never far away if we had any questions or an issue arised. The whole reception worked as a well oiled machine. Food was surprisingly good for banquet food. The chicken was moist (what?! what banquet chick isn't dry..) and produce was fresh. Halls are nice, with a great fancy/upscale vibe. I didn't stay in the hotel, only in the event halls, but from a glance the hotel looked nice. A little unorganized for my personal taste, but I also think it's the whole 'open floor plan' vibe that's in currently. I heard the rooms were very nice with a separate door to help keep the noise to a minimum so you could actually sleep. But there also were a bunch of kids spending the weekend for a tournament, so that doesn't help. I'm not sure if I would come back, (but I also live so close, where would it be even worth it ). But if another event occurs here, I certainly wouldn't complain. More...

I was at a conference at this hotel for week. I had important paperwork to sign and needed to find a notary.  Gwen at the front desk not only found me a notary but also helped me FedEx my paperwork.  What a great experience!  Every person I encountered was gracious and helpful. Highly recommend! More...

First time at this Marriott but will not be the last. Enter this full service Marriott and be greeted by a friendly, inviting staff member. Concierge assistant available as well.  The lobby has a coffee shop available during morning hours to start your day. It also offers room to spread out and get work done on some high top tables as well as chairs and couches to spread out.They offer up conference rooms and a conference center for your business and meeting needs. Because it is a conference center, the gym is larger than most hotel fitness centers. Offering up nautilus and free weights, elliptical machines, stationary bikes and treadmills. There is also a good size indoor pool. Hungry? Pop into Wadsworth to grab a full service meal. Nice menu w decent selection of beers and wine.  Rooms are spacious and clean. The suite had a living area, desk & separate sleeping area. Plenty of parking and located right off of the highway! More...

In town for a hockey showcase and fortunately the team chose this Marriott hotel. Upon arrival, we were met by Gwen with the news that our room was not yet available - they were trying to quickly turn a number of rooms to accommodate the teams moving in for the weekend. She kindly took my number and called as soon as it was ready. The lobby is well appointed with an impressive fitness center, much better than your typical hotel. Room upgrades were not available as the hotel was booked, however I was in a king suite with sofa pull-out on the concierge floor. The room had a separate sitting area which is idea when spending more than a couple of nights. In the evening, the concierge lounge offered an assorted dessert selection, candies, coffee, tea, beverages and liquor, beer or wine for a small fee. Lee kept the lounge impeccably clean and he was pleasant and accommodating. Only drawback of my room was that I couldn't be 100% certain my bedding had been changed (couldn't help but think of the hurried state the staff was in when we arrived). My son was lounging on the bed when we got to our room, however at bedtime, turning back the duvet revealed sheets that didn't have that fresh, crisp feel. That, and an unwanted hair. Yuk. We slept on top of the duvet that night with our blanket from home. We addressed this with housekeeping in the morning.  Unless you are a reward member (we are gold), there is a charge for wi-fi and breakfast. I found the breakfast buffet chock full of variety, but $17++ was a bit pricey. Eat a big breakfast to get your money's worth! Overall, the staff couldn't be friendlier. Gwen provided the magic moment of remembering my name each time I saw her and Dylan in the restaurant delivered exceptional service the evening we decided to dine-in. We were also greeted warmly each time we saw Michael, Sr. Would stay here again should our travels bring us back to MN. More...

Thank you Marriott Northwest for a wonderful experience at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception January 4th. Cathy Dunn and her staff were very attentive to our needs and accomodating to our requests. Every staff member was dedicated to making sure our event was a success and consistantly greeted us with a smile and extended a welcoming and helpful hand. Cathy provided excellent advice and guidance through the entire process and made the planning chores a fun and exciting time for our families. The hotel was just a few minutes from the wedding location in downtown Minneapolis and also convenient for our guests, close to the Shoppes of Arbor Lakes. They had ample parking close to the doors, which was appreciated in the deep freeze weather. The grand ballroom was beautiful. We also chose the Marriott as the location for many of the wedding photos as there were so many unique sites in the building for staging them. More than half of our 275 guests were also overnight guests at the hotel. We received many comments from them on how nice their accomodations were. Thanks again to all of the staff for making our event so personal, beautiful and special! More...

I could not have asked for a better wedding reception than the one organized and put on by Cathy and her amazing team at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest! Everything was exactly how I always imagined it would be. The venue itself is quite beautiful, and all the food, from hors d'oeuvres to dessert, was delicious. I was able to book the cake (we did cupcakes) and table linens through them as well, so I didn't have to worry about paying those two additional vendors. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Minneapolis Marriott Northwest every time. More...

--Providing the announcing of the cake cutting. Asking ahead of time if the bride and groom would like to cut the cake prior to it being served.
--Allowing the bride and groom 15 mintues to themselves prior to the guests coming into the room. There had been people in the room, and we had lost some valuable time to be able to take in all of the decorations, etc.

Cathy did a fabulous job of making things simple and easy for us. I LOVED the room and how it was set up - everything was exactly as I requested. The servers were super nice and very friendly – the guests commented regarding the service as well. I couldn’t have been any happier. Thank you for making our day smooth, elegant, and fun. I will certainly recommend you and the Marriott to anyone and everyone. It was a pleasure to have such an important event run so smoothly. More...

This is our second family wedding. Our oldest daughter had hers at a Country Club / Golf Course. It was pretty, it was nice, and a great place to take pictures. But we were happy we went to the Marriott. They gave us options for music, Cake, and many menu items. I would highly recommend spending the extra on the bar and food before the reception starts. The guests were able to get rides from the hotel to the Church. The reception room was beautiful. The staff was top notch. There were plenty of rooms for the guests to stay in both before and after the reception. Everyone that attended commented on how beautiful the reception was. More...

The service provided by the staff at Marriott Minneapolis NW was amazing. We worked directly with Cathy Dunn for catering and event services for both our rehearsal/groom's dinner and wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. Everything was impeccably planned, and set up to our satisfaction. The entire hotel staff was extremely accommodating, and ensured that everything needed was made available. There were minimal minute issues that arose during the entire 3-day stay at the hotel, and all were handled efficiently, quickly and above all professionally. More...

A great place for a winter wedding. All the team members that I worked with were so friendly and responsive. They helped me with any snags that came up during the wedding process and were willing to help accommodate extra requests that family members had. Heather and Virginia are so wonderful. I wanted everything to be centrally located and the Marriott was the best location for what I needed! All the guests commented on how beautiful the venue was! Awesome experience. As a plus, everyone loved the food too! More...

My now husband and I were looking or a venue that could handle the ceremony as well as the reception. We did not want our guests driving from one location to another. The Marriott Northwest checked all those boxes for us. Our wedding coordinator Virginia W., her team and everyone we worked with at the Marriott was an absolute joy to work with. Very accommodating, kind, personable and professional. The food at our cocktail hour and reception was excellent. The hotels rooms were clean, large and very nice! We highly recommend the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest for any of your event or wedding needs. More...

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Marriott Northwest. Heather, Virginia and Lynn were top notch, along with other hotel staff -- room service, bartenders, servers, front desk, etc. When we asked for specific items to be brought up to our suite, it was delivered within a matter of minutes. The food was excellent, rooms were beautiful, and our overnight guests raved about all of these things as well. Many guests told us our wedding was the best wedding they've ever attended. I hope a friend of our has a wedding there so we can go back for another wonderful wedding experience! More...

Our wedding reception was held on Saturday, July 9th, 2016 and my wife and I, Emilie, could not have been happier with our choice or with Virginia! ! She was incredibly attentive and responded to every question and concern very promptly.

My wife and I and our parents all had, in my opinion, a massive amount of detail and general questions. Virginia and her staff could not have been better or more patient with us and that was one thing we really were looking for in a venue. She made the entire day and planning process flow effortlessly and she went out of her way on several occasions the past year or so to make sure she got us the answers we were looking for.

Virginia left nothing but positive impressions in our mind and the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest was phenomenal in every facet; I would not hesitate to recommend this venue in the future to any couple looking to book a reception in the northwest Minneapolis suburbs!!!

To be honest when we began our search for wedding venues we were quite skeptical thinking we would be nickel and dimed for every little thing with little quality. ..this was our experience until we met Heather Campbell at Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park, MN. From our very first phone conversation to multiple questions, to guest accommodations and soo much more, Heather and her team have been timely, responsive, empathetic and have really gone above and beyond to make sure our experience is over the top exceptional. Thank you so much Heather for all of your help. We are thrilled to be working with you and would strongly encourage other couples to get in touch with you as we know they will be treated with the very best care. We cannot thank you enough for making our experience exceptionally special! More...

She promptly answered all of our questions and helped us consider things we hadn't thought of on our own. The fireside room and lobby were amazing and all of our guests loved all the space. Our guests also booked rooms with the hotel and they had no issues at all. We would HIGHLY recommend this hotel for your wedding reception venue. More...

This location is one of the nicest Marriott properties I've stayed at in some time. The only real "con" is that it's not terribly close to much, but definitely a good option for those doing business in the area or hosting a conference/meeting. The property is a converted Embassy Suites so rooms are going to be larger than the standard, with a nice sitting area - a good option for families. We were upgraded into a corner suite (Marriott Elite, holla!) and it was huge! There are the standard amenities - indoor pool, workout facility, business center and a small-ish conference center. Parking is free, but wifi isn't unless you are a Rewards member.Nice rooms aside, the staff here is absolutely great. We arrived a bit before the 3pm check in and had to wait a bit for a room (maybe 15 minutes). Really no big deal, but they offered us drink coupons for the wait which I thought was really nice. We were there for a small event and the bartending and serving staff were also great. I'd happily stay here again. More...

We had a WebFOCUS user conference at the Marriott and they had great amenities. The conference room was huge and comfortable. The technical aspects were perfect.I entered the room and got a great Caribou coffee. Love the Caribou. I ended up having two.We had a buffet for lunch with parmesan chicken, broccoli spears, risotto, beef raviolis with a wonderful creamy sauce, a wonderful Caesar salad, some artichoke and tomato salad. The raviolis were smooth, yet filling. The sauce could have used some more seasoning.For beverages, they had iced tea if you wanted it. I didn't try the rolls, but my friend said they were fantastic!The food was very much like a wedding buffet, but it was solid.A great convention space! More...

I wanted to say a very big thank you to Virginia Wasmund and the Marriott team for helping to make our wedding day a special one. You gave me so many cost effective choices when we didn't know how to best choose a room for our budget and dream wedding reception. You also gave our guests who were staying over great rates too!

Thank you especially for your beautiful card, advice, patience and suggestions.

I really am grateful and hope to see you again - but not for a wedding! This is it !!!!

Much love,

We had our November 1st reception at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest. Cathy was super responsive and very helpful. She did everything she could to make sure that we were well taken care of, and we were. It was so nice to not have to worry about having someone to meet the DJ, or set out escort cards, or meet the florist. It was all taken care and all we had to do was enjoy our day.

We knew the minute we walked through the front doors of the hotel that this was the perfect venue for our wedding. Every interaction with the hotel staff (especially Cathy Dunn) was outstanding. They took care of us and kept us informed and on track throughout the entire process. Our main goal was to have people come and have fun and celebrate with us. After months of planning and preparation I have only one word to explain our experience.......MAGICAL! As you get closer and closer to your event you start to realize that perfection is out of the question and ALL things will not go as you expected. Cathy did everything in her power to make sure that the pressure of that day was taken off of our shoulders so that we could quit worrying and have fun! I had many people travel to our wedding and the hotel was able to accommodate everyone. The suites are modern and spacious.....my friends kept referring to their room as an "apartment". Cathy is amazing at bringing a bride's wedding dreams come true! More...

Sarah and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Marriott Northland, we have never in our life had so much attention to detail with things. From the smallest thing of the candy on the table to the way the flowers were suppose to be a surprise for my bride. They made sure that everything to what I wanted, and they made that extra effort to make sure you had what you wanted at and in the reception. The wait staff was very attentive to the needs of the wedding party, and other people in the wedding.

We could not have the breakfast because of the college I began the day after our wedding so they gave us a beautiful lunch with the upmost outstanding service. They are not just there to do a job, but they make you feel like a part of there family. It is such a wonderful feeling.

They make sure you have everything, and if you want to have a wonderful wedding and reception, and have to worry about nothing the Marriott Northland is the BEST you will get.

Our daughter, Diane, had her wedding reception at the Marriott Northwest in Minneapolis. Her wedding planner, Cathy was absolutely wonderful. She answered all her questions, took care of all the details. When Cathy brought my sister and I to see the room after it was decorated and before the mea,l it took my breath away-it was so tastefully and elegantly done. The meal was great, and the special room rates they provided for the guests was such a bargain and a welcome and appreciated surprise for family that traveled from in and out of the area.

Sue was the banquet captain the night of the dinner and the entire staff was extremely welcoming, friendly and attentive to all of our needs. The Hereford Filets and Chocolate Crunch Cake were incredible. Our compliments to the Chef for a very memorable meal! Tau managed the breakfast and we couldn't have asked for better service. The entire staff at the Marriott was extremely professional and friendly.

Thank you so much for making our experience about as perfect as it could be. We knew right from our initial 1 hour tour that we were going to have our reception at the Marriott Northwest. While some friends had mentioned that their reception planning was difficult and stressful, ours was pain-free and when a concern came up, ours requests were welcomed and a resolution was quickly made.
It is quite obvious that Cathy's experience and customer service skills are no less than 5 star.
Thank you so much for everything! You gave us plenty to smile about. If we know of couples looking to have their reception in the area, we will refer them to the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest

We could not be happier with our experience with the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest! Cathy and Ronda were absolutely fabulous to work with. We had a few different requests that they were always willing to accommodate. I spent so much time emailing them with questions and requests and they always responded right away and were helpful. Our cocktail hour and reception were both just stunning!! Their staff set up everything exactly as we had talked about. We received so many compliments on the food and the venue. Truly just a top notch venue and service. I am actually a little sad that it is all over because I really loved my chats and emails with Cathy and Ronda - they were both just great! You truly could not go wrong with your wedding reception at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest. More...

Our event was very professionally planned and executed from the beginning to the end. The servers were all efficient and pleasant.

Cathy Dunn did a superb job in helping and advising us on the Groom's Dinner for the Cates/Pribula Wedding.
She set up EVERYTHING in advance that took the worry out of it. She is a GREAT asset to your company. The food was superb with the Tuscan Buffet. The server's were very professional. Lynn was exceptional.
The whole weekend was a dream come true. My husband and I were thrilled with hotel, the rooms, the staff, the food- just everything!

Quite some time passed, and I've had numerous additional stays at this property.  It has grown on me.  :-)  Though the heating / cooling system has not been changed, and i did have a couple of mishaps while a guest, i will say the level of service, responsiveness and attention to customers' needs is solid.  The executive lounge breakfast is always prompt, plentiful and filling; the hot snacks after work, followed by a selection of sweets after 7:30, always hits the spot.  The gym facility is one of the better ones I've seen at hotels.  The expansive lobby offers plentiful comfortable seating, conducive to business talks and friendly chats. And the property has top notch meeting facilities [my company has conducted a number of events here, so i have had a chance to enjoy the professional accommodations and service]. More...

My husband and I had such a great experience with the Marriot Northwest. As planning gets stressful, the staff at the Marriot assured me that all would go as planned. And it did!! As soon as we arrived to the Marriot on our big day we were greeted with a very responsive and helpful staff. They were constantly checking in to make sure that everything that we wanted was taken care of. I did not expect that! I could not have asked for a better experience! More...

We had our wedding on July 27th in the Hennepin Ballroom, and I must say it went by too quickly because we were having so much fun. We couldn't have done it without the help from Minneapolis Marriott Northwest.... especially Miss Cathy Dunn. We will always remember you. :) From the moment we met you, you made sure that we were in the hands of good people. Your hard work and dedication meant so much to us. We will forever be grateful. Cathy by far is one of the kindest most amazing woman I have met. You definitely made sure we were in the moment "The BIG DAY". Cathy was not the only one that showed us wonderful service.. The entire team was helpful in making sure our day was special. The food was amazing, the ballroom was gorgeous... :) Our family and friends had such an amazing time. Thank you Minneapolis Marriott Northwest for all that you do in making sure dreams come true.

Sincerely,

The Gravdahl's

We had a great experience with our wedding coordinator, Cathy Dunn. She was very helpful with every step along the way and able to suggest alternatives if and when needed. She was always prompt on returning our calls and emails if we ever had questions and always was pleasant to talk to. As for our wedding day, she made sure everything went smoothly! I couldn't have asked for it to have gone any better! Thanks to everyone who made our day at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest! More...

Cathy Dunn, Wendy Gustafson, Terston and their band of awesome helpers were truly amazing! They are professionals and it showed by making our special day perfect! We had our ceremony in the open lobby by the fireplace and the reception in the beautiful Fireside room. Our guests were treated like royalty and it was nice to enjoy our day as we put all our trust in having Cathy and Captain Terston take care of us and our guests. We would highly recommend the Marriott NW to anyone looking for a venue for their special day! More...

Our reception was better than we could have imagined! Every hotel employee we encountered from our event planner to the desk clerks, bartender, servers, and waitress at the brunch the next morning were fabulous. This was a second wedding for both of us so we wanted a smaller more intimate event. Our reception was early in the day and it took place in the Fireside room. It was a cozy venue which was beautiful and the perfect size for a smaller event. The food was delicious. The compliments were flying from all guests. After our reception was over, we continued the party up in the Presidential Suite. We would highly recommend the Mpls. Marriott Northwest to any interested party. They will help you plan an unforgettable event. More...

When we walked into the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest when looking at wedding venues, we knew we had found the place. This hotel is absolutely beautiful since the redesign. Cathy was helpful, gracious and wonderful to work with from day one. With our small (62) wedding size, the fireplace room was the perfect space for our intimate party, and our ceremony was held with just our family in one of the presidential suites. My guests couldn't say enough nice things about their rooms, the main lobby area of the hotel, and of course our reception space. I didn’t have to worry about a thing, they took care of the decorations and planning just perfectly. It made for a very stress free day for me! The food was AMAZING! Weeks later I have friends complementing the wonderful dinner, especially the BBQ Blue Cheese Salad dressing! Our banquet captain, Sue, was a true professional. She kept in touch with my husband and I throughout the night, but made sure everything ran smoothly without out any invention from us. From the décor, to the food, to their assistance getting gifts to our suite, top to bottom the staff at Minneapolis Marriott Northwest made our wedding day absolutely perfect! I would recommend anyone to hold a wedding or any event at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest! More...

The best part of the event was when my daughter came up to methe next morning and said, "Mom, it was perfect, I wouldn't have done anything different. " The staff was exceptional, the food delicious and the presentation awsome. I would definitely recommend this hotel for any type of event. More...

The Marriott Northwest was a great venue. The event planner (Cathy) was a treasure - answered every question, provided loads of suggestions and support, responded quickly to phone calls, and was genuinely caring. The venue was beautiful and comfortable. The food was delicious and no guest left hungry. The wait staff and bartender were attentive, polite, and skilled. And the suite for the bride and groom were such a special touch. We highly recommend this venue for weddings and receptions. More...

This hotel was accommodating and helpful even in the most stressful situations when we had to suddenly move our wedding up 5 months. Cathy was an exceptional coordinator that made every single step enjoyable. She made sure we were heard and had the best experience possible. The wedding and reception at this location were absolutely perfect - I would highly and without hesitation recommend this venue, and the services of Cathy, to any and all couples looking to wed in the Minneapolis area.

Stayed here recently for a conference. The hotel is very nice, and well looked after. Our room was located on the 8th floor. The openness of the centre area of the hotel was quite nice. Our suite consisted of the den area, bathroom, and a nice bedroom. There were two flat screen TV's. The room was clean, and had central air. It was also very quit as we could not hear anything from any other rooms which is always nice. The bathroom was large and bright. My only complaint there was the shower was lacking water pressure and was not fully enclosed. As far as a conference/convention centre, this place was great. They have a ton of room. I'm already looking forward to going back next year. The catering they did was great as well. My only other complaint is that you have to pay for wi-fi. More...

I barely ever make it out to this neck of the woods, but I figured it was my turn to drive out to meet my friend who lived closer to Northland. We met for their Sunday brunch. The inside of hotel and breakfast set up reminded me a lot of Embassy Suites set- up.Excellent choices for brunch and a good variety of breakfast fare.  The spread was quite nice and looked the food was fresh.Waffles, made to order omelettes, salads, meats, cheeses, fruit etc. I was impressed by what they had to offer. The area was clean and presentable and our server was very nice.Would probably venture back if in the area,  but don't know that I would make it a habit. The brunch is around 22.00 and it's a bit of a hike. More...

This review is based on my experience at a conference I attended recently. The space was very suitable for the conference, with spacious areas for checking in, vendor displays, and good-sized breakout rooms (to seat about 30-40 people) on two floors. Plenty of parking, and easy on-off highway 94. The lunch set-up was particularly nice with a lot of separate areas and different stations in two different places, preventing long wait times. Hotel staff were around and visible and very helpful. More...

My stay there was eight years ago, so I don't know how much has changed.  However, my stay was excellent!  I took my lady up to Minneapolis for her birthday; she and I loved our stay at the Inn.  The service was A-1 and all the amenities  I requested were in place upon my arrival.  The breakfast was awesome and all other aspects were top notch.The only reason I won't give them a FIVE, is because I stayed so long ago.
