“College Trip”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We arrived early but the staff was able to accommodate us by giving us our room early. The hotel itself is very modern, but the rooms are very comfortable. The bed was great, really had a good night's sleep. It's centrally located. We were able to walk everywhere. Overall a great choice if your in Minneapolis.

Entertainment options are endless as Le Méridien’ s two landmark revival buildings sit in the heart of one of the city’s most alluring neighborhoods.

Upon entering the lobby, I was impressed by the aesthetics of the space; the little corner near the entrance was a nice little gem, and I enjoyed how decorated the hallway was with all the art. The staff at the front desk were friendly and very helpful, so no complaints about that. They even offered a nice upgrade to a suite! Our room was clean and well-made. The heated bathroom floors were also a super nice perk! Their restaurant, Marin, was a chic-looking place full of happy patrons with personable staff. While I can't speak about the food having not being able to try it, they sure knew how to craft a cocktail. And if Marin isn't your cup of tea, Le Meridien is conveniently located right in the middle of everything, so there are plenty of bars and restaurants (and a couple of dance clubs!) to choose from. If you're visiting from the city, public transportation drops you directly at the front door, so it's quite accessible from just about anywhere.

If there was anything to complain about, it'd be the uneven temperature distribution in the room, but it was a very minor detail for me. And while they obviously go for a specific type of design which I really liked, it overall made the common areas look very sterile, with the exception of the color-changing hallways to the rooms.

Even so, I'd come back here again and I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The room, location and the staff were top-notch for me.

Had a great stay. Very friendly staff, comfy bed, and beautiful bathroom. Only thing that irked me is the lack of an ice machine. Room service will bring it and do so quickly, but I still prefer DIY. Would definitely return!
Also- some very healthy dining options in hotel.

This hotel is well managed and overall provides a good experience. Clearly they are going for an artsy, designer hotel feel and there is cool video art in the common areas. The rooms are large, the bed was very comfortable and the restaurant is good. But I wouldn't describe it as warm and inviting, despite the kind and welcoming staff. The decor is spartan or even sterile. Perhaps they are going for an art gallery type feel. If so, mission accomplished. Great place for my business trip. Great location, free solid WiFi (with SPG Account). I'd definitely stay again for business, but not for a romantic getaway.

I had an awful experience with their reservations. I wanted to cancel a reservation and had to pay a penalty of 255 dollars plus tax, I respect the rules and was willing to pay. I called the central reservations of Le Meridien who confirmed that but were unable to even do the cancelation. They asked me to contact the hotel directly. I did, and after being transferred to another person I was told that the cancelation was completely non-refundable. (Value of about 2000 dollars). I rechecked the confirmation email and notified him that's not what their own rules said, and he told me he was unable to find anywhere where it says it's partially refundable. However their own central reservation confirm that all but 255 dollars are refundable. I also happen to speak English and have a phd so I would know how to interpret a simple confirmation email.

Not only is this minneapolis hotel trying to steal your money but they have major communication problems between each other , which tells me there might be bigger problems than this. I'm going to avoid this chain for now, and definitely will get my money back through all the available legal ways. They may have nice paintings in their lobby, but professionalism and honesty aren't among their strong features to say the least.

We stayed at Le Meridian in Minneapolis for Sir Paul McCartney's concert at Target Field. Everything was as expected with this high end hotel. The check in was great, service was top notch and the room was clean. It had some nice high end features including a heated floor in teh bathroom which my wife especially loved.

I'm a local who stayed downtown Minneapolis for the weekend. The location was excellent for walking to restaurants, bars, Orchestra Hall, and Target Field. The room was extremely clean. Even the couch was clean and you know how gross they can be in hotel rooms. The bathroom was really nice with aqua colored tiles and a funky modern sink. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever had. There is a layer of down padding under the sheet so it really envelopes you. There is artwork throughout the hotel (kind of odd art, but interesting). The restaurant Marin was really good and a nice atmosphere to sit out in the courtyard.
