When I lived in Minneapolis this was a bank, they have kept the very impressive bank lobby as the hotels lobby, bar and restaurant (vault is the wine cellar take a look). Check in is at the very back right corner 2 small desks that do not allow for enough staff at peak check in times expect a bit of a wait. Rooms are standard Westin clean well laid out and comfortable, bathroom is spacious but has limited counter space do to the form over function "furniture" sink installed. The shower made up for that big and with a nice rain show head. The Westin "Heavenly" bed was absent from my room probably was time for a refresh of the mattress or mattress topper still comfy just not the I never want to get out of this bed normally found at a Westin.
Internet was excellent (make sure you are a Starwood Preferred Guest member for free internet) I was able to work all day with no connection issues even on some of our data hog programs.
Room service small late night menu fast and efficient service not sure how a 14.00 sandwich and 10.00 bowl of suap added up to over40.00 but the bowl of soup could have feed a family of 4. Its room service I'm never shocked by the final bill.
Parking $39.00 for 24 hour with in and out privileges we didn't need the car the 1st day so parked in a nearby garage for $21.00 and then found a space on the street for Sat. night for free. (Read the signs don't get a ticket or towed)
Our only real disappoint was not being able to have a cocktail in the bar as the space was rented out for a wedding................ Its a great space and it looked like the wedding party was having a great time, so guess me not being able to get a drink was ok.
