My wife and I decided to stay downtown for the Paul McCartney concert and chose this hotel. Staff was friendly, great time in the bar with drink prices as expected for downtown, and a very nice room. Great location for the concert at Target Field. But it had two things I don't like.
The first is more a personal preference: No ice machines and having to call room service to get it. When We wanted a quick drink before heading out, I don't like waiting 30 minutes for ice. It's a spur of the moment choice taken away by lack of easy access to ice. Not a deal breaker, probably just me.
The second issue is the reason I won't stay again. We left the room at 5 to get dinner and came back at 6 to get ready. I immediately noticed the ice bin I had been playing with was back in its place, the bed straightened backup and other things moved around. This truly creeped me out. We were out of the room for less than an hour. How did they know we were gone? Suddenly I had that feeling like we were being watched. To me, a hotel room is your personal space where you can unwind and relax. Staff members entering your room anytime made me uncomfortable and that relaxed feeling was gone. Maybe they thought this was value added and shows service above and beyond. I find it creepy. I'm not going to stay somewhere that makes me feel like that
