Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KateEK Don't Bother Upgrading...
I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza, and asked to upgrade my room as soon as I checked into the hotel. They were very accommodating, and were able to get me into a room right away. I did pay extra for the room, but I found that there was nothing in the room that was above and beyond what was outlined in the description I got when I made the reservation for a regular room online. The room was clean and nice, I was just disappointed that I ended up paying $20 more a night for what I suspect was the exact same room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmks Always a great experience
I've used this hotel over the years for work and recently tried the new Blu at the Mall. I'll never go back, this hotel's staff and overall experience are light years ahead.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jetboy88 Breakfast buffet
I stayed for 7 days, had the breakfast buffet twice. Both times the food was old and dry, over cooked and in general very bad. Orange juice was not included. I've been travelling for years and this by far was the worst breakfast ever. Will not ever try it again. The hotel yes but not the food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sparklintan Great Hotel for the Money
We had four women staying in one room and found a really reasonable rate on a Saturday close to the holidays. We only really used the room for sleeping, but we did take advantage of the shuttle. We took it to the MOA and back and it was quite easy. It does only leave once an hour, so you do need to coordinate that.
Our room was very clean and accommodated us just fine. We did only have double beds and since we were sharing they were a bit snug, but we were ok with that. The sheets must of been brand new, because they were extra crisp and made a lot of noise. Other than that the beds were comfy and we all slept well!
I did inquire about the park and ride options, as I travel a lot for business also, and they do have those options available as well. I am going to keep that in mind for any future business travel.
I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tkbtkb Old hotel. Great location. Breakfast not worth it
Huge rooms. But old furnishings and very stained carpets in
the two rooms I saw. Besides that, room was clean.
But felt like something out of the 80's.
Great location for talking the train to downtown
or the mail. Train comes right up to hotel!
Very nice staff. At desk and restaurants.
Had the buffet one day... Cold & disappointing.
Terrible biscuits. Cold French toast. Dry eggs.
Icky fruit. And they add $3.50 for a small OJ.
Had a waffle and uncooked hash browns
From the menu the next day. Very disappointed

I lovd the shuttle to MOA, my kids loved the large pool and very comfortable and spacious pool area. The staff was wonderful.....bar area very pretty and comfortable to visit in!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MNtraveler16 Great place to stay while attending pro sports!
If you are looking for a great hotel within reach of downtown Minneapolis, this location is perfect! Light rail right outside of hotel which can take you to airport and/or events in downtown (about 30 min ride). I didn't have to worry about parking fee for event or garage parking in any downtown hotel. Excellent work out facility, too! Lounge was even open after the game! Rooms are nice and staff is excellent. I always try to make this my 1st choice when staying in the area.
