Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jbonneau49 Great Staff, EXELLENT Location!
I work for Delta and travel a lot. When I am in Minneapolis I always choose this hotel. Between the location of the hotel right by the MOA and airport makes this hotel a hot spot! The food is good at the hotel, and the service is just great. One time a friend and I wanted to stay a night at the water park hotel and the shuttle driver drove us their just because! very nice of him! I know one thing and it's that if I am staying in Minneapolis for the night to go shopping or to watch a Twins game, I'm staying here! I think i have stayed just about 10 times at this hotel and have never had one problem! would recomend it to anyone. Its located right on the tram station and makes getting downtown easy as well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by porcupine888 Great for business or pleasure
Free Shuttle from airport a big plus. Shuttle will also take you to the Mall of America. Great Lounge. Breakfast Buffet was just ok... nothing special. Full service bar was nice for meetings . Staff was great with any questions or needs. Great Wi-Fi speed but still wondering why so may Crowns have analog television signals in a digital HD world.
Was here on business, so not bathing suit with me but the indoor pool looked really nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Purplegang A nice hotel, but overpriced
I don't have too many negative things to say about the hotel. It was very nice, the staff was polite. We've stayed in hotels in this area for 3 years now. This hotel was the most expensive, but least satisfying. The rooms of other hotels we've stayed at were larger and much cheaper. The lounge was nice but the food was also overpriced. $12 for a breakfast buffet offering few items was disappointing. As was the $14 pizza that definitely tasted like it was frozen before cooking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trave105 Excellent Staff and excellent shuttle service
The hotel and staff were exceptional and very helpful. The airport and Mall of America shuttles were clean, the drivers were courteous. The even dropped us off at a non-scheduled stop.
I highly recommend the hotel. Access to the train for the city is very convenient.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by shopaholicjo Nice hotel, good service, room did not smell good!
We really liked the Mall of America package. That was the reason we stayed there because even with the price being more expensive per night, we saved money by getting the Nickelodeon ride wristbands and the coupon book, plus free breakfast coupons at the hotel. They also have a shuttle that takes you to and from the mall. The only thing I really disliked was the smell of the room! We sprayed perfumes and had the air on all the time to keep the air moving but it just didnt help.

Very kind and attentive staff. They exceed my expectations, which is hard to do. When traveling to this area, I won't stay anywhere else. I wish they would work on their menu/improve options, but other than that they do a beautiful job taking care of me as a guest. and it is very appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SafetyDon New name, same great stay
It's been a couple of years since my last visit to the MSP-MOA location, last time it was a Holiday Inn Select. The elimination of the "Select" brand made this location a Crowne Plaza but little else has changed, and that's a good thing. The room was wonderful, the staff fantastic, and real eggs in the conceirge lounge for breakfast. I got an upgrade to a suite despite my very early arrival and also had a late checkout. Always a pleasure to visit the MSP area and the Crowne Plaza makes it even more enjoyable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by badexperience3 Horrible stay and bad service!
This was a horrible experience all together and really made our vacation awful! We got in very late so the next morning when we woke up I looked over and seen something resembling dried spit dripping down the bed sham, then we went to put some things away and a door on the closet was hanging off its hinge. So I opened a drawer to put some clothes in and there was hair all over in the drawer. We then decided to make some coffee and found that the coffee pot didn't even work. I then went down and told the front desk and they apologized and moved us later that day. The room they moved us to was not as destroyed as the first but you could still see food stuck under the bed sham.
Then to top everything off the people next to us one night were up slamming stuff around in there room and woke our daughter up and she cried for about thirty minutes, We then started to get her calmed down and then the front desk came knocking on our door and she told us how a complaint was made about the baby crying. I told her not much I can do we are trying to calm her down but the people next door keep slamming stuff. She didn't do a thing about that. For the amount of money we paid for a suit I will NEVER stay at this Crowne Plaza again! The hotel pictures looked nice and the beds looked plushy and comfy but it's not by any means nice and the beds were hard, we woke up each morning with stiff backs. If you have an issue with something nothing is really done to accommodate. We ended up having to pay for sleeping in a dirty room and things were broken. I have never had a worse experience with an ihg brand until this one!

I would like to see a separate shuttle service for the hotel and airport. We were asked to wait for the shuttle to pick up people at the airport. Couldn't it just drop us off at the mall first?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wanapasaki Dim lights and narrow hallways
Luckily I was there for a day. The custodians made sure the room was clean but alot of the furniture was tore up and I also saw some blood on the shower wall. The entire building is super dim and ive never seen narrower hallways in my life. I have been on the road for the last three years and this hotel is definitely on my top 10 never again list. The receptionist was pretty rude when I told her my address was incorrect on my ihg rewards account. Go for the holiday in a little further bit north on the highway

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeC81 Great place to stay!!!
This was my 2nd stay at this Crowne by the airport and I must say both times were excellent! I was greeted by a super friendly desk clerk, Michelle, who was just outstanding, thank you! She immediately acknowledged me as a Platinum member and gave me priority check in. Michelle also offered me a complimentary room upgrade to a suite with a wonderful view of the airport and the twin cities. The room was clean and comfortable but the beds were a little on the hard side and the little square pillows were difficult to sleep on (you should go back to full size pillows). We ate breakfast at the buffet on 2 mornings and it was just outstanding. The food was hot and very delicious with a large variety to choose from, excellent! Overall, this a great hotel with outstanding staff. We will be back in December to stay for another weekend when the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is in town! I highly recommend this Crowne Plaza. Thank you!

We had a great stay at your hotel nice breakfast .The only problem was the shuttle every body was told it picked up every hour on the hour and I get that you cant do that but you should not tell people that just ticks them off .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sillyqtpy Housekeeping could use some help
I stayed for business and overall it was satisfactory. The front desk staff was friendly, however they forgot we needed a shuttle on one occasion.
My only real complaints would be for housekeeping and the breakfast staff. The first night I took a shower and when I went to grab the first towel on top, it had someone else' hair on it - gross! The next day, I spilled a little powder on the counter in the bathroom. When I got back at night from being at the office all day, my bed was made and I had fresh towels, but the powder was still there. This leads me to believe they didn't wipe down the counter. I was also out of lotion and they did not give me a replacement, luckily there was a cart down the hall and I was able to grab one.
Now for my issue with the breakfast staff, which really wasn't an issue for me personally, but could have been. The last day of my trip, I came down for breakfast around 10am and stood around waiting for someone to seat me. Finally I get seated and I am told there are no eggs at the buffet, but my server said they could make some for me in the back, which was perfectly fine. A few minutes later, the cook comes to me and ask if I'm going to eat anymore. I was satisfied with my one plate, so I declined. He began to take down the buffet, even though it was only a few past 10am and the buffet is supposed to last until 11am. A few minutes later, another guest comes down and they were telling her they were going to close up the buffet, because nobody was coming and that made sense to them. Why would that make sense to them if you are supposed to be available until 11am? I almost waited to come down, since I was trying to get work done before my flight and I would have starved if I did. I feel terrible for the people that were trying to catch up on some rest and came down for breakfast at 10:40am or so to find breakfast stopped early. To me that is unacceptable to post a time and not adhere to it, very poor customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cdncruzer Great stay
We got upgraded to the Concierge Floor so the use of the lounge at happy hour and breakfast was a real nice surprise. The room was fairly large with a very comfy king bed and nice linens. Parking is complimentary in a covered parkade. The only downside is the rather sketchy condition of the stairwell from the parkade. It is well lit but that is about it. It needs a serious overhaul as it does not give a great first impression.
The LRT is close and convenient for making your way downtown to the game or shopping. The hotel is also close to the airport, MOA and IKEA. There is a hotel shuttle and although we didn't use it, it seemed very busy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by couple826 Nice hotel, poor parking accomodations
Hotel, room and restaurant are nice. Parking (in parking ramp) is very inconvenient if you are going to and from the hotel frequently. Stairwell in parking ramp would be scary after dark.
