My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and I could not be happier with the accommodations The bed was so comfortable and the shower was amazing We felt well taken care of by literally everyone we came into contact with

The front desk always had smiles and asked how our day was, the valet was always quick, and the two women at the bar were so kind We walked down to Caribou Coffee two blocks down both days and felt safe This hotel is in an ideal spot and seems to be like 15 minutes from everything! We went to the spa and used some of the amenities before we left and felt so refreshed Just a heads up, you can get a day pass to the spa for $50 dollars per person If you have some downtime, I highly recommend it Great stay and we will definitely be back

Ross Nelson

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and had an amazing stay! Some of the nicest accommodations we have ever had anywhere Briana made sure our stay was extra special and went above and beyond for us Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful! My wife had an amazing massage at the Adna Spa that is located on site

Breakfast in bed was delicious and high quality The whole place was incredibly clean We will definitely be coming back to Hotel Ivy next time we are staying in Minneapolis!


The hotel is so clean and lavish We always upgrade to the high level floors where it’s most quiet All of our encounters with front desk staff, room service, house keeping, and engineering is impeccable

We always seem to have an issue with valet service including our most recent stay on 2/19/22-2/20/22 Upon arrival a young valet did not help the passenger out of the vehicle which is in very busy one way traffic nor did he assist the driver, just stood there and told us to leave our keys in the car and he left it unattended on a busy down town Minneapolis street We had to get our own luggage rack When you’re paying $48/day + tip, you expect a little more That afternoon upon trying to retrieve our car, the same young man and different young man acted like we were a huge inconvenience as a “walk up” even though we explained our text ticket didn’t work When returning that evening an extremely lovely older gentleman with a pony tail helped the passenger out of the car from heavy traffic and talked with the driver to make sure there was nothing further he could do for service before parking That’s what earns good tips and respect The same gentleman retrieved our car at check out and was so gracious in seating the passenger and loading our bags The Ivy needs to have that gentleman run a training course for its younger valet staff members

Updated lobby with fireplace and lots of tables and chairs to relax in Had a birthday get together and used part of this area Staff were very friendly

Nice complimentary breakfast Pool was heated Nice size hot tub, although it needed a little fixing as some jets didn’t work Also dog friendly! Room nice and had a kitchen Had a basic suite Not large but nice

Mandy Furney

Lovely stay for us in a last minute emergency situation Staff was all excellent If we had any questions or requests they were quick to respond

Room was clean and welcoming Access to washing machines was a blessing for us when stranded longer than intended Location was fantastic and walking distance to anything you could need Common areas were also very nice

World Fusion Radio com

Staff are amazing! They could not have been more helpful and caring The manager, Danillo helped save our reservation when our flight was cancelled Everyone else displayed the same work ethic of service

The room was comfortable and spacious, nice bed, good towels (the importance of good hotel towels are underestimated), nice kitchen in the room The breakfast is above average for US hotel buffets We will stay again next year

Update-after being told to turn the mattress around (both sides sunken in) , we don’t have any mattresses and our General Manager will be in on Monday I will mention it Last night I had to put the sofa mattress on top of the bed to get a descent nights rest Well, I found out my mattress has been replaced

I guess they were able to find one Looking forward to trying it out tonight I need a good nights rest without my back and hip hurting

Jeffery Lindberg

My first stay, December 8 – December 12 was fantastic McKenzie and Latisha, both front desk employees, were incredible They were kind, helpful, funny, and made staying here an overall better and more pleasant experience

Considering the many alternative options in the area, I would circle back to this hotel in the future based on the quality of accommodations and the enjoyable interactions with the staff membersLetisha and McKenzie made us feel at home Great employees and great ambassadors for Marriott

Staff was very friendly and helpful Zak checked us in and represented the Hilton brand as well as any customer service / front desk administrator could As soon as we walked on we were greeted with a smile and hospitality

We used points for this stay, but plan to use more often as we visit the twin cities area often Housekeeping staff deserves credit as well My son is a stickler for cleanliness and our rooms were clean top to bottom Keep up the good work!!! This hotel is worth a stay!

Desi Arul

Overall impression is good, breakfast till 10 am but they worked hard to keep refilling, receptionist was friendly, clean interior & well maintained exterior Bed is comfortable, although felt the room a bit dark to my liking (ground floor room) but people might like it better Location is very convenient for shopping & restaurants/fast food

Don Loewen

Devon runs an excellent establishment Was greeted by Zack at the front desk Very friendly and professional

Great restaurant recommendations as well Accidentally forgot my jacket that has great sentimental value They boxed it up and sent it to my homeWe had a great time and will definitely come back!

We held our wedding of ~70 people at The Hotel Landing, which included the following activities at The Hotel Landing:*Friday night – rehearsal, cocktail hour, and a welcome diner for everyone staying at the hotel*Saturday – private breakfast buffet for our guests, wedding ceremony in the Grand Ballroom, Cocktail hour, Dinner, & Dance*Sunday – Private breakfast farewell buffet for our guests staying at the HotelEverything was absolutely perfect! They got every detail right Perrie Meltzer, the Catering Salves Manger, was excellent to work with – she really made sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it to be! The wait staff were so polite and kind

Everyone at The Hotel Landing contributed to an excellent wedding weekend for usWe highly recommend The Hotel Landing!!!!

Paula Hari

We held the Welcome Party for our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding in the Wayzata room at the Hotel Landing Perrie and her staff were magnificent to work with! The bartenders and wait staff were so pleasant and accommodating! They filled our requests for the extra food with ease and a genuine desire to make our event so great! The bartenders kept the bar open for us as we slowly trickled out The venue was beautiful and everyone had a great time! No one wanted to leave!We will keep Hotel Landing on our short list for any upcoming events that we have to celebrate!

Doris Anderson

My daughter and son-in-law had their wedding reception at The Landing 2 months ago I wasn’t going to write a review, but after this long it is still bothering me, so I feel I must follow my heartThe facility was beautiful for a wedding

The caterers and the wedding planning staff were great during the planning process The food was delicious! However, this is where the positives endWe did not find out until after the hosted bar ended that the remainder of the evening was a cash bar I always thought “cash bar” meant that the wedding guests were just required to pay for their drinks…not that they literally needed “CASH” only to buy the extremely over-priced drinks This was very frustrating to many guests, and they ended up leaving early because of itThen around 8 PM the music and dancing started It was shortly after an hour after that the Wayzata police showed up as there were noise complaints from residents across the street In my opinion, The Landing should not be able to rent out their facility for anything with a music venue as we were told “this happens all the time” We didn’t appreciate it happening to our daughter and son-in-law, and on our dime It is extremely disconcerting to have police officers walking around your wedding reception…this happened twice in the eveningIt is now midnight, and we were told that everyone needed to leave the reception area as it was being locked up The hotel bar was already closed so the wedding party had nowhere else to go, so they decided to move to the Presidential Suite where the bride and groom were staying They had just gotten there when they received a nasty call from the front desk that they were being too loud- as defined by a disgruntled non-wedding guest from across the hall My room was just down the hall, and the only thing I heard was some appropriate wedding laughter in the hallway as they made their way to the Suite This lasted about 3 minutes Subsequently, they were not being loud, and the music was on very low However, the front desk complained twice more about the noise and started becoming very rude about it -even threatening to “kick them out” This begs the question of if we rented a block of rooms for our wedding guests- why was there a non-guest put right across the hall? He should not have been there in the first place and the front desk should have offered to move him I think we paid a lot more to be at the hotel for the evening than he didThe wedding party attempted to remedy the situation calmly and respectfully but were met with complete resistance and annoyed and unprofessional front desk staff After about 30 minutes of this, everyone went to their own rooms and the bride and groom were left sitting quietly on the couch looking very dejected and disappointed in how “their day” ended You won Landing- but look at what you didIn summary, the entire reception was tainted by all of these events, and we will never return to The Landing again as this has left a very “bad taste in our mouths” We certainly didn’t get our money’s worth and would not recommend anyone having an evening party/reception there with any music/dancing…unless you are a glutton for punishment

Never been disappointed with this hotel Wife and I have been coming here for years

it’s actually our little escape Have always been treated extremely well, service in the lounge has always been great, and the restaurant is really good Nice comfortable and non generic hotel Decided to stay a night for our anniversary, and there was champagne and snack tray waiting I have traveled a lot and this is a hidden gem

Tayler Trottier

Was told over the phone when made my reservation that I was getting a double queen bed room for 165/night Got there and they gave us a double bed room for 225 a night and told me they had no others rooms and would not switch me Staff was very rude if I could find or talk to anyone

Warm water was scarce if you wanted to shower And the staff told me I could not get extra towels The lady Watching over the pool was very rude and yelled at multiple children Definitely do not stay if you have any children under the age of 18 Was told only some rooms come with the continental breakfast and our double room was one that didn’t Elevators had problems all day, started taking the stairsOverall experience: worst hotel I have ever stayed at I DO NOT recommend this for anyone! If you do stay, make sure it’s the room you asked for the the price they say


Right away the hotel will get your attention as it is very large, and uniquely builtThe service however has been poor since I arrived I asked at the front desk when we arrived if I could purchase a room upgrade which I was quickly told no

Clerk at the counter refused to look in the computer system Later in the evening I went to the bar to get myself a drink, I arrived at 10 and sat down at the bar, and tried to order myself a drink where I was turned away by the manager who said they were closed When I questioned about the half full room of customers who were enjoying their drinks he asked me to leaveI definitely have a bad taste in my mouth about the service and do not recommend staying at this hotel is you want good service

Stayed for 3 days, and each day was great :)! The bed was comfortable, and the AC in our room was perfect We could change it to 78° or 64° in no time! The shower pressure was lovely, and the showerhead was quite tall My partner is a tall guy, so the height was perfect

The breakfast was okay, but I don’t mind that too much The location is perfect too! You’re in the middle of everything you need

Jesselynne Thornton

I only stayed for a day, but it was a great stay! The hotel staff were nice, and they were able to accommodate me with an early check-in, so that was nice The room that I stayed in was spacious and very clean, as well If I had to critique something it would be that, some of the property seems to be undergoing renovations, so both of their pools were closed and some areas of the hotel were blocked off, but other than that great stay! I’d definitely recommend! 👍🏾

Matt Paterson

I don’t enjoy writing negative reviews because doing so feels like a detriment to my fellow man But in this case, to not write an honest review (could I give 0 stars?) would be to dismiss my duty to my fellow man to spare them this experienceFrist off, the atmosphere of the hotel is that of scraped walls in the hallway with loud and liquor scented guests

(That’s no exaggeration) Inside the room, all the normal features appear to be functional But what do we all really care about? The bed and the pillowsFirst off, the 5 pillows were square shaped (What is this a couch?) and devoid of either fluff or cleanliness We found several eye lashes on the casesPeeling back the now off white sheets showed us several long hairs, not our own And the smell from them was not that of freshly washed It didn’t smell used, but it also didn’t not smell used eitherWe arrived at 1am on a Thursday and within 5 minutes had made our way downstairs for a full refund Thankfully, they did do us that grace by giving us back our $155 for a Thursday night stay I may have considered staying if they had offered to pay me $155, but I likely wouldn’t have been the first one through those doors to make some cash on their sheets

We stayed here for Valentine’s Day as a staycation We live in the Twin Cities but wanted to do something special It was a lot of fun

We used their valet service which was nice We also took advantage of their rooftop spa, this was so amazing It’s a great place for just a special night They are extremely dog friendly so if you have a furry friend bring them along The only downfall, we had horrible service in the attached restaurant We stopped in for a late night drink and a snack in the bar area, our server ignored us the entire time Didn’t bring plates, napkins or silverware with the appetizer we ordered Finally got her attention and asked for napkins (we had ordered cheese curds – greasy – napkin was necessary) she finally sent someone else over after we were done and told them we didn’t need them anymore She was completely engaged with another table showing them pictures on her phone and carrying on a long conversation It was ridiculous


The hotel is beautiful It’s fairly easy to find and pull up front The roof- top hot tub and sky line view were awesome! The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable

We didn’t get a chance to check out the bar/restaurant but they look promising The valet experience could use a little work When paying over $400/night for the room and $48 for valet we were expecting for at least a little help unloading vehicles and bringing luggage to our room When leaving- call plenty early for the valet It took at least a half hour from the time we called to get the vehicle

C Parkman

The Hewing is no doubt a beautiful place to stay and well done for the city However the price you pay for a night doesn’t quite match the quality of what you get unfortunately For a price tag of $420 for a king size city view we were expecting a bigger room, plush hotel towels, robe’s, a more comfortable bed with a waterproof mattress cover that doesn’t make that plastic sound when you move on it, and at least a bottle or two of complementary water

We went up to the rooftop jacuzzi to enjoy the evening and it was right next to the roof top bar, which anyone can get into, so all the bar attendees are watching the hot tubers, it was a very weird and uncomfortable set up Needless to say we didn’t get it Your paying Ritz prices without the amenities

Melissa Johnston-Standal

First, off if you’re a family of six (four children and two adults) you are not all getting into the water park because each room only gets five water park passes You can’t purchase any extra Pool closes at 9:00 and you only can swim until noon the following day if you only stay for one night because they change wristband colors

Don’t pay for breakfast because you don’t actually get a breakfast They give you two breakfast coupons valued at $1000 a piece but you are only allowed one meal per coupon which the choices are slim and if you brought your kids well either your kids or you are going hungry McDonald’s breakfast is much better then what they offer which doesn’t say much The wait time for your food is ridiculous, your order isn’t even correct when you receive it This is due to the staff being unorganized or due to how breakfast is being run in the first place The whole situation is a joke You are allowed one drink but that doesn’t include coffee Bring your cleaning supplies because the room may be not up to standard At least ours was not The microwave was disgusting as well as the fridge Under the bunk beds was old food and containers Along our bed rails was some kind of soiled debris And the heater in our room gosh was it loud and I mean extremely loud which you were not able to sleep very well A few of us were crabby due to a lack of sleep For what I payed this is unacceptable and I probably would have benefited staying at the starlight motel (which is a two star motel) in Columbia Heights I would never stay here again and I wish I would have known because it was not worth the $60000 spent here Extremely unsatisfied and disappointed in this establishment for the way in which they have chosen to run this place Save your money and stay somewhere worth making memories because this isn’t the place

Katherine Fernandez

We booked this hotel because it had a water park inside Well the water slides are only open on the weekends which was not during our stay The pool is still really cool but the rope obstacle course was also closed

Our room was adequate It must be right above the kitchen because the entire hallway smelled like fish Staff was responsive and sprayed air freshener Breakfast is not included but there is restaurant with a very limited menu They have a breakfast bar like I expected but again only open on the weekends So if you are going on a weekend this place is great Someone from the hotel called me ahead of time to tell me about the water slides but my whole family had already booked in It’s clean and comfortable but not as cool or nice as it looks online

Daniel Stenzel

Very disappointed I got the two night minimum renting a room with a kitchenette $1,000 BUT they forget to tell you there’s no dishes, no silverware nothing

That’d be nice to know considering they knew it was coming for a children’s birthday party CAN NOT have food in the pool area if that was your idea for the birthday party My very expensive room, not very clean the jacuzzi tub had a dirty film and hair in it I attempted to order food from my room and got hung up on twice before the front desk said she’d just take my order, she told me she didn’t know she could Long story short I never got my food they never called when it was done nor told when it would be done, very confusing If you’re heading this way bring everything but the pool You’re welcome to use my second night for free We’re heading to the Great Wolf Lodge water park

Kristi Haugen

Couldn’t be happier with this hotel Small hotel charm with beautifully decorated room Bathroom was spacious and had lots of natural, yet private light from frosted windows

Huge walk in full tile shower Bedding was clean, new, yet soft Thick and heavy window treatments kept plenty of light out in the morning, much appreciated Our room had a private outdoor deck/patio that was fairly secluded and our favorite part complementary anti pasto app and wine on arrival Delicious complementary breakfast as well Breakfast was beyond our expectations My husband prefers full leaf tea and is hard to please and said the tea was amazing Breakfast pastries were fresh and tasted even better than they looked Oranged juice was freshly squeezed Bathroom had ample shampoo and body wash in herbal refreshing scent my husband loved We will definitely recommend and return!

Jack Rusher

Pros:Well decorated rooms, central location, friendly staffCons:Because there is little sound insulation between the second floor rooms and the bustling bar/cafe downstairs, they’re very loud The proprietors seem to know this, as there’s a white noise machine in the room, but it doesn’t do much good if you’re hoping for actual quiet

The included “breakfast” is a pastry and drip coffee If you want an espresso-based coffee, a flat white in my case, it’s offered at the eye popping rate of $5 Egg? Be prepared to pay This policy felt hostile and penny pinching given the cost of the room

Nice hotel That staff was friendly and welcoming Bartender for the evening reception is great

Guy that made my omelette in the morning was wonderful Make sure you tip those people when you’re staying here My only complaint is it’s starting to show it’s age Needs a little TLC and updating in the rooms Room was pretty clean, could have been better though If I’m in the area for the right price I would stay here again

Yanicey Hermandez

They charged my account $75 for a registered service animal that has documentation They violated the ADA, American disability Act They say they don’t see the difference between a pet and a service animal

I reported them to Hilton and will report them with the Agency They can’t make there own rules as they go along They claim they charge the fee for cleaning Just to give you some insight, the room they initially gave us was smelly and disgusting The second room where we ended up staying was dirty, we ended up doing a thorough clean and disinfect Shower was grotesque, both phones did not work, only 1 remote for 2 tvs in different areas We stayed 6 full days and housekeeping NEVER cleaned our room It’s funny to me that they want to charge a fee when we dealt with all these things, truly ridiculous They must be really hard up for money if they are discriminating against people with disabilities and disregarding the law

I was really disappointed in this location Front desk customer service was just not there No smiles

First night, the woman behind the counter was on her phone and didn’t acknowledge me when I was looking for the convenience shop When I showed up another day, a different woman was on a smoke break out front and I had to wait We checked out early because of all the box elder bugs in our room The room was not in great shape either There was a lot of wear and tear Terrible experience for the price

Updated (5/28/2022) Back again visiting family in the Twin Cities Clean, and we couldn’t be happier to be back at this Marriott location! PREVIOUS: Our room is spacious, clean and comfortable! The hotel is well located for our visiting needs while in Minneapolis Our room was well appointed with extras not found at other hotels in this category Front desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful

This will be our “go-to” location in the future when we come to visit Thank you for making our stay just that much more pleasant!!!

First I want to say how amazing the staff are, specifically Bill and his team max and chutney were tonight I’ve never seen such genuine care for the well being of every guest, but also the way bill treated his employees and that clearly permeates throughout the entire hotel which is why we will never go anywhere elseOn a side note, the “Venitian” waterpark is spelled wrong

I made mention of it to the front desk manager and she didn’t seem to care , guess I know who spelled it wrongThanks again to the night team for taking care of my guys who are in town all week for training

I would say that about 95% of the Marriott hotels I have stayed in have never disappointed! This being one of them, I only had one issue and that was with my mobile room key, which was easily fixed with a regular room key However, my stay was amazing, the staff was friendly and the outdoor hot tub! Sitting in the hot tub when it’s cold out, is amazing! There is shopping and restaurants in walking distance, there also is food and bar right in the lobby in case you just don’t want to venture out! Definitely will stay again!

Beautiful and clean clean clean!!! Rooms were exceptional with real plates and coffee cups There was a full size fridge, microwave, dishwasher too!!! Service was friendly and Bob the “breakfast guy” puts a fantastic spread out for the free Continental breakfast Only wish I would have packed my bathing suit to enjoy the heated saltwater pool!!!

I have stayed at this property in 2020 everything went fine I recently stayed in March my stay was fine Everything was good until a few days after I check out i get noticed via my HR that it was cake left all over one of my rooms

The room i personally stayed in I been working for Hilton since March or 2010 I have traveled to other country’s as a Hilton team member and never had a experience like this Before I check out rooms I even make sure everything is good and leave a tip No way on earth I would ever let my 11 year old son leave a room in that condition or even attempt to do something like that in a room Yes I’m saying someone at this hotel did that to my room Due to the fact that I don’t have pictures of videos of when i checked out it’s basically my word against theirs Since this experience I will be recording everytime I’m checking out a room

I had a number of issues with this placeCons first:LACKED IN THESE THREE AREAS:CleanlinessSafetyAmenitiesThe first room that we were given was NOT properly cleaned there was still beer bottles and towels on the floor from the previous residence (see photos) It was absolutely filthy

Luckily one of the staff was very nice and was able to find us another room immediately His name was Jeremy and he was very kind and professional about itAlso they didn’t clean our room on any of the days that we were there until we explicitly asked them to That was quite frustratingWhen they did clean the room they brought us dirty towels that were stained yellow like it was from urine (see attached photos)Next safety was an issue The main point that was an issue was the level of ice in the parking lot Even though I was extremely careful I ended up slipping and hurting my arm The parking lot had no salt or anything to ensure patrons could safely walk to their car This is a huge safety concern especially if you plan on leaving the hotel or renting a carNext was the issue with the amenities The plug point in the room for USB charging was not working by the bed The shower had no soap or shower gel in the dispenser There were spatulas and other cooking amenities BUT there was no stove or anything to cook on The bathroom had a tissue box but no tissues in itPros:The location is quite nice and is right along a major highway so it has easy access to the surrounding area as well as downtown Also there’s a convenience store within walking distance which makes it extremely easy for quick snacks There’s also a restaurant and a number of other fast food joints in the surrounding area making this a nice place to stay for a couple days Also the staff was very friendly and professional The decor in the rooms and throughout the facility is very modern and clean looking I do appreciate the aestheticoverall the pictures of this place online show a very nice and clean environment but that was not my experience I do not recommend staying here If you can afford it I would spring for something slightly nicer If you cannot I had relatively good experiences at the Red roof inn which is just down the street

Where do I even start to share how truly remarkable and fabulous this motel is! We were there with family to celebrate our daughter’s wedding Particularly outstanding was the check-in staff and the lady who managed the bistro bar Every question and request was more than adequately addressed and we truly felt like we were VIPs

Teri in sales was our point of contact and we could have not been served better by her, from the get-go! Tami at the West and Brittani at the Courtyard were also particularly helpful! Thank you, thank you, thank you, we are so grateful We are now Marriott customers from here on out!


Pleasantly surprised Typically don’t frequent Marriott, was concerned because the exterior looked oldChecked in extremely late, (midnight) young lady at the desk was professional, informative and courteous

Room was clean and organized, plenty of coffee and water availableStarbucks on-site and restaurantComfortable bed and sofa, close proximity to where I need to be, good experience no issues, will return!

We were here for a wedding Beautiful venue, good food, friendly staff What was lacking was the handicap accessibility

My mother in law has to use a wheelchair Some of the doors didn’t have the push button, and we really struggled to get her in the restroom I had to have someone hold the door for us and barely got through the door Had she wheeled herself there she wouldn’t have been able to get in Maybe there’s a restroom more handicap accessible, but I didn’t see any signs Beautiful place, just not very handicapped friendly

Wonderful hotel establishment Exceptionally clean, quiet and staff was very friendly and helpful Beds are very comfortable, water pressure was great in the shower, and I didn’t have to crouch in there (I am 6’1”)

Pool is on smaller side and shared with adjoining hotel, so if that is a major concern for you, this may not be the place One of the better hotels we have stayed at Would definitely recommend!

Jacob Vestering
