Great rooms, comfortable and well appointed We upgraded and had a beautiful view of the Mississippi Daily breakfast was worth it

They have a nice lobby, hallways and parking are very industrial Service was excellent during the day One night I was treated rudely when asking for a corkscrew? Could’ve been 5 stars but the poor night service bothered me I will still go back, well worth another try

I had a wonderful stay I got into the city very early but I had breakfast which was delicious and the staff got me checked when they could I was in town for a friend’s birthday party and everyone was very accommodating

The only downside was that I attempted to print of my boarding pass for the bus and the printer would not work yet I was still charged for the internet use and copies I never actually received

Joe R

Great location on the river with exceptionally friendly staff The river views were very nice but the hotel interior was dark, very tired and in need of updating Other than the desk chair there was no other seating in the room

When I informed the staff that our room had no chair they though it was odd that there was none and told us that they would look into it We never got the chair The hotel parking garage was an adventure The ceilings in the garage were so low that they did not allow vehicles over 5’9″ to enter The lighting in the garage was terrible I felt like we were parking in a cave Next time in the area I think we will try another hotel

Super great stay We spent a couple days here after our wedding reception Kristen and Angel were extremely attentive staff members, amongst many others who helped make our stay that much more comfortable and wonderful

Rooms were comfortable and had a great view – rooms were stocked well with plenty of amenities Very convenient location (walking distance to target field/center, downtown) ample parking in underground garage, located in a mall Hope to stay here again soon

Jackie Lauren

My husband and I stayed here for a night on the day of our wedding (June 25th) and had such an incredible experience We ended up being upgraded to the presidential suite and the room was beautiful! So spacious and had a great view Easily the best hotel room we have ever stayed in

Also wanted to add that the woman who checked us in was so sweet and genuinely excited for us! Overall had a wonderful experience and would absolutely stay here again Thank you for making our stay so special!

My sister was visiting from NC so we opted to stay in the city for the weekend (4/8-4/10) We literally chose this hotel for the view and location I reserved our room a month in advance and added our reservation to the list for a 16-19 floor room with a view

However, when we arrived and I asked for a higher floor, I was given room 1456 which had a north view with a very tall building right across the street (I could barely see the top of it w/o putting my face on the window) and another tall dark building behind it, off center to the left There were several very noticeable stains on the floor and ottomans The shower was turned so tightly we both had trouble turning it on I had to hit it repeatedly to break it loose When we called the front desk for help we were told it would be 30-60 minutes for someone to come help There were gnats in the shower and it wasn’t until we showered that we realized why the water took forever to drain! By the end of my 30 minute showers I was in ankle deep water, wading in my own crud The ice drawers in the hall way had a bag of ice in them that was torn open, I’m assuming to take a cup at our own risk? We opted not toRoom service was very quick When we first arrived and checked in, I asked for extra towels and the awesome room service beat me to my room with them! I complained about none of this during our stay because we were busy exploring Minneapolis and St Paul before I leave for good However, I did email the hotel so they will hopefully resolve these issues for future guests!I’m giving 3 stars instead of 1 due to the location and ease or parking (very safe, gated underground ramp) Otherwise, I’m highly disappointed in the quality of this hotel

This is such a beautiful place! We stayed here for my husband’s birthday Loved the fact that it isn’t the average hotel The rooms are very charming and the antique furniture and art was all lovely

Really easy to take a walk along Summit and get to nearby restaurants! I wish we had stayed longer We were up on the third floor–based on the photos we thought the room would be a bit smaller/cozier but it ended up being very spacious!

Mary Jo Bartels

Such a delight! Did not want to leave this beautiful place!We booked the master suite and just Wow! So many amazing spaces to enjoy The quality of the home, the wood, the windows and light, the furnishings, fireplaces, library, parlor Such a grand place to savor sweet musings of lives and years gone by

Will definitely come back but for a longer stay! And I plan up research the story of the family who first lived here and the evolution since those early daysThank you for making this indulgence available for us to enjoy!!

Jenny Mena

We could not have had a better stay This boutique hotel was even more beautiful than it appeared on the 3-D tour online My husband found it in a Google search

We were looking for a space for hair and makeup artists to come in to get my bridal party ready for the big day that could turn into a honey moon suite at the end We booked room 301 It looked exactly like the virtual tour accept it was more polished, more beautiful, more clean The floors and all the pictures and floor boards were pristine Their cleaning staff are amazing Since I hosted four bridesmaids, a personal attendant, three flower girls, and the two hair & makeup artists the morning of, I emailed the day before to request a clean, fresh sheets, and towels They came in after we left for the church and left everything looking like newI was worried in the restored building that the air conditioning may be unreliable but it was cool throughout the suite and stayed Cool in every room The bedroom closet was large enough to air out my cathedral length dress train during our stay The gorgeous tub was perfect for a post-wedding soak The full kitchen and fridge was ideal for the Lund’s catering we brought in for breakfast and lunch and kept everything cool and Fresh so we were able to have chilled bubbly when we returned back and cold OJ in the morning as well as midnight snacks without ever having to leave the room After a busy day, we were slow getting packed up to leave in the morning of checkout We emailed the desk from bed for a checkout extension and they responded with a two hour extension of our code without issue We had such an amazing experience we can’t wait for a reason to go back My husband even made a Facebook live video of the room before we left he was so happy with it Thank you, Davidson, for such an AMAZING stay You helped make our wedding weekend so marvelous Keep up the good work

I really wanted to leave a 5 star review, but couldn’t The rooms are spacious and modern The breakfast is good

I can’t give it 5 stars because of the atrium noise Guests are to follow the quiet rules beginning at 9:00 There was a wedding reception that was still going strong at 11:00 The reception was in a ballroom/meeting room, but some of the the reception guests used the atrium They were loud Very loud If paying guests are to follow the quiet hours, then should reception guests

Rochelle Burger

The bathrooms are small, mildew on the ceiling in the shower Needs an update and added ventilation to it The deck door froze over and once it warmed up it melted to the bottom

No drainage holes The living area is nice and roomy Had a room with two queen beds Did not use the pool, no sitting area (table/chairs) The attached restaurant has really good food, will definitely return for that

Alan Duck

Had an incredible experience at the Embassy during a recent post-Covid work trip The hotel made hospitality feel like the good old days Front desk was very swift and attentive

However, the bar was set in the restaurant this trip Shannon the manager had a stacked house and her staff ran the place like pros Shannon cultivated a connection with many guests, despite how busy they were Azure, a new waitress, was equally exceptional Service was fast and my entire Corporate team will now know this is the place to stay on our next visit Highly recommended

Zae&Mommy Glover

Awesome hotel! They have great security You cannot access the use of the elevator or secure parking garage without a key, nor the building itself They do charge you under $20 for parking but it’s worth it

They have breakfast and a decent selection of items The hotel is well kept and the rooms were very clean and nice Was disappointed in the size of the pool They do have a little kids area w/ pool that’s not at all deep with a slide and water spout type contraption The staff were all friendly and helpful Location was okay but I never had a reason to go out and about in the city We were in town visiting family Double check your charges after you check out It might have been a fluke but I had mysterious charge that they did end up refunding me for Jim is one of the managers at this hotel and he was very professional, patient and helpful when resolving this issue I definitely would stay again

Almont Sadie

After having a horrible experience at Best Western Como park, we cancelled our reservations and went here Feeling so let down by our first encounter with such unprofessional staff, this place was a breath of fresh air!! The check in process was perfect The receptionist, Jacky, was so friendly and helpful!! It was beautiful, bright and clean! Location was perfect! They even have a beautiful, little attached patio to enjoy outside

I highly recommend this hotel and our family looks forward to visiting again as this is where we will always stay in the future:)

Ashley Munk

Breakfast was good Fresh and many options Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable

A little disappointed with the pool and jacuzzi listing as the jacuzzi was the entirety of the whole pool We were expecting more of a hot tub or separate area for jacuzzi Otherwise, it was fine Staff were very friendly and the building was very secure

Friendly, helpful staff (thank you Shay for the great service and caring smile) Valet and shuttle driver were extra perks! Hot breakfast provided a variety of options (son is gluten free) but odd no brown sugar for the oatmeal Classy yet cozy room with well supplied kitchen

Best of all, first time we’ve stayed in the Twin Cities without waking to sirens or traffic noise (Several were deployed, too)

Stephen Ellis

Stayed here 4 nights with my wife and kids Started with the air conditioner not working in the room We notified them multiple times they gave us a fan

Average room temp was 75-80 degrees Didn’t want to make a big deal because the said the we fixing it By yesterday we’re like pack all our kids up and goto another hotel? We just toughed it out The only good thing about this place is the pool Breakfast was sub par Good thing hopes is next door I mentioned again about the room air and their reply “Said did we tell them” Unreal! You gave me the fan So she comped us the valet parking We didn’t even use valet parking but one night because when we got back the place was surrounded by police cars Been here before a year ago and it is definitely not the same Hit or miss here

Nic Dunseith

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 months while we worked in St Paul The staff here are amazing

The hotel was well kept and well run Extra mention for Shay who made sure we had a room that was in a good location for working night shift and Luke who brush our car off when we didn’t have a snow brush and had a flight to catch the next day I cannot say enough about all of the wonderful people who made our stay amazing I wish I could give this a rating higher than 5 stars Thank you to everyone for going above and beyond – kitchen staff, housekeeping and maintenance, we are so grateful!

Beautiful hotel!We only stayed 1 night but we will definitely be back!Rooms were super nice!We did the pick up breakfast as the restaurant or the room service is only open certain times and we missed it With covid room service I believe is not an optionLoved the free parking and the shuttle to the mall!Staff was super friendly!

Arnold Heney

No television remote in the room the first night but the front desk staff handled it quickly the next morning My wife asked for more coffee cups the second night but they were never delivered Club access was available however the espresso machine did not operate, and the meals were available thru a voucher downstairs in the market

Pool was small but nice we were hoping for a hot tub to relax in after spending the day at Mall of America We were happy with the proximity to the mall

Michael Moses

Nice digs for an airport stopover Right on the train line so don’t even worry about taking a shuttle, and technically you could just take the train into the city and not need a car at allSeems fairly new

A bit noisy in the hallways from guest room doors opening and closingCould use a bigger lobbyRooms felt modern and typical of a Hyatt Regency

I was really pleasantly surprised at how fantastic our stay was given the price was cheaper than the competition I expected, given reviews, that it would be good, but it was great! Excellent staff at the desk, who even offered to help find a discount given why we were in townThe food staff, who were kind and helpful, and created quality way above hotel normal food

Really, way better than your average hotel food–and free! Lobby and rooms were clean, well appointed, and comfortable I watched multiple times how staff took pride in their work; I watched a staff member pass just a tiny paper on the floor He stopped and picked it up They all appeared happy, too I highly recommend!

John Sandfer

My family and I stayed two nights last week (Thurs/Fri) and could not be more pleased with this Hotel Property was well kept, rooms were clean and spacious, pool was small but nice for the kids FREE Breakfast was excellent with lots of offerings hot and cold

Nightly reception with hot buffet and drinks for FREE was amazing! Staff were very friendly and helpful as was the bar and grill staff located inside the hotel At the price per night it was an awesome deal considering all the freebies they provide We originally were going to stay just one night for a concert in town but loved it so much we opted for a second Would highly recommend this property if staying in the downtown area, we will be returning again soon just for fun

Amanda Heyda

Stayed for almost 3 weeks while my loved one was in Regions Hospital The staff were amazing They were so friendly, helpful, and understanding with all the stress I was under

The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, hot breakfast and supper daily and free adult drinks at supper Which really took alot of stress off me Plus they have guest laundry room so I could wash clothes! Wish I would have made it too the pool They also have 4 elevators centrally located so there was little wait

Cady Sever

It was a beautiful hotel but they were also hosting professional soccer players and we did not feel we were treated like we were as important as the other guests We arrived for our honeymoon, which was noted in the reservation by our travel agent and we didn’t even hear a congratulations from the staff I would not say that anything was bad, it was a lovely hotel overall but for 4 star accommodations, we will book elsewhere in the future

Chrystal Caruthers

So, this is supposed to be a higher end hotel Don’t be fooled Initially I was in room 803 with sight lines of the air conditioning systems on the roof just next door

The buzz kept me restless all night The next day I requested a change Now, room 1616 was totally fine Quite, airy, bright all the things you expect Even the shower system was better — multiple body sprays versus one in the lower level room So the disparate room situation aside the doorman at night is a nightmare to deal with A simple question begets sarcasm and riddles Asked if I could park on the street overnight, he told me to read the sign I did Again, is it legal to park on the street, I’m not from here and the sign only says to feed the meter between certain hours In Chicago, street parking is tricky It takes a native to interpret Finally I decide to park for free just outside the hotel doors and pay the meter starting at 8am I saved that $50/night hotel parking fee He was speechless when I approached the hotel with my room key to enter Terrible I wouldn’t stay there again no matter how discounted the rate is The Keurig didn’t work The shower has peeling tape (room 803), the very old bathroom TV doesn’t work and I’m still not sure why it’s situated opposite the toilet, but that’s another story Oh, and Room 803 had broken glass in the bathroom when I checked in Housekeeping had to come clean it up This place is a mess

Cherise Fillinger

Although the hotel was recently remodeled and looked nice there seemed to be some deeper issues The elevators were slow and noisy and didn’t seem to run wellWe had dozens of ants in our room

The ants were in our bathroom as well as on the dresser in the main room The room also did not include a hair dry and a burnt out light bulb in the the bed side table (We did not complain until checkout as we arrived late and were gone all day We noticed the ants when we got back but we leaving early the next morning)When we mentioned the ants and light bulb to the front desk staff at check out they didn’t take note of our room number It was clear they either knew about the ant problem in the hotel or didn’t care they have an ant problem We did not ask for or expect any compensation and were only interested in seeing they cared about the issues This is not a cheap hotel and I expected much better at this price point

Zebulen Dickey

I am a Hilton Honors member and made a reservation at this location for one night being in town for work I had stayed here multiple times before because of its location and I liked the rooms I was asked to show the card I planned on using to pay for the room(the same card I used to make the reservation) and was told that they could not accept it

I explained to the gentleman at the front counter that it was a business card that I use while traveling and have used it at this location before as recently as the week before He said that was irrelevant and he couldn’t do anything to help I was quite furious when I left Especially because it was 1030 at night and I was exhausted I got to my vehicle, cancelled my reservation and made another one at the Hampton Inn 5 minutes down the road and didn’t have any issues paying with the same card that was turned down earlierI don’t ever plan on recommending this location to anyone nor do I plan on staying here againThank you

Kacey Hammer

Rooms and public spaces were clean, which is rare these days Housekeepers said hi when they saw us in the hallways, which is niceFront desk staff wasn’t very friendly and they forgot to fulfill our request a few times

Elevator was very slow the last day When we asked about it, the front desk was obviously irritated that they had to answer about the slow elevatorPool is indoors but well maintained and clean with towels at the ready

The lobby is nice Valet parking was convenient The morning we left, there were dozens of other people leaving too and waiting for valet

The desk staff and valet people were really hustling and did a good job getting lots of cars quicklyThe room was not great There was no mattress pad on the bedjust a fitted sheet directly on the mattress The room was not cleaned well There was dried mascara on the sink leftover from a previous guest The door handles and high touch surfaces had residue and marks showing that they clearly take no time to wipe down or properly clean such areas The shower was not cleanTheir saving grace is that they are right across the street from the excel center, which is convenient for attending events However, it may be worth it to stay elsewhere in a cleaner room and take an Uber or pay for event parking instead!

Bethany Rose Larson

We were in town for a difficult family trip (saying goodbye to a loved one), so for us, this place was a haven of much-needed rest It’s been recently remodeled and has a new feel, even though you can tell by the ceilings that the building has old bones The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast room packed but kept up with, and most memorable were the staff, who were kind and helpful

The only thing I wish I would have known about beforehand was that there was a parking lot *right* behind the hotel, which could have saved us the $35 valet fee (though the valet guys were great) We literally walked into our room, opened the windows, and looked down onto the park-and-pay parking lot It would have been a short walk up a hill and around a corner with our suitcases, definitely worth the $35 plus tips! Oh well! If we’d been having a sight-seeing trip, it would have been a perfect location for downtown events and the riverwalk Another time, perhaps!

Tara Miller

We went to a Minnesota Wild game, and love the convenience and location of the hotel to the Xcel Energy You are given valet parking, so you don’t have to find a spot to park and pricing is reasonable They have breakfast in the morning from 6 to 10 am

we have stayed there a few times for games and all the experiences have been good Would reccommend

Stayed at hotel for honeymoon and it was perfect Amazing food delivered to the room from the restaurant, all staff were friendly and accommodating Everything was clean and loved the suite, the tub is large enough even my 6’5” hubby was able to comfortably relax and bathe

The common area was luxurious so it was nice to have a quiet meal in the room one night and play cards with a local friend Definitely want to go back! The rooftop bar was amazing as well!!

I have stayed at Omni Viking Lakes a few times, and there are a some things that keep me coming back The hotel is beautiful! The Nordic Viking theme is just perfect, with subtle and tasteful nods to the Purple&Gold Vikings who’s training facility is just next door This hotel is high end while still being inviting and comfortable

Side note: If you are a MN Vikings fan, you just might end up having a drink and some great conversation with a player or coach ;)The rooms and spaces are exceptionally clean and well appointed The staff- from the front desk to the restaurant, and bar staff- have all been so kind, professional, and welcomingTheir loyalty program is so thoughtful! Sometimes a glass of champagne at check in, complimentary wine/beer at the lounges or restaurants, or complimentary coffee from the in-house Caribou Coffee branded shop are always so appreciated I recently also booked services at the spa and it was truly a luxury experienceSo, with all of the hotels to choose from in the area, I’ll continue to come to Omni

This place is excellent My fiancé and I booked a regular room and were able to upgrade to a suite for half the price We had a huge bathtub and shower room

Very clean room, comfy bedThe food down at the restaurant is good too Only complaint I have is the fries were not all that great But my Korean Fried Chicken sandwich and his steak was so yummy! We had breakfast down at the little coffee shop (wasn’t great for the price…)We also got couples massages at the spa and were treated like royalty when we went in there You can use the spa all day if you book a serviceOverall, it was a nice and enjoyable experience We were sad to leave!

Stay here! The place was amazing The valet were superb! Room service was on point even through this pandemic Elegance, history and ambiance all wrapped into one

The business center is perfect if you need to tend to business while you’re staying here Business center was quiet with desktops and designated area for laptops, had coffee and muffins I would definitely come back

Mary Jo Bartels

Our room was impeccable and bed so comfortable! Very roomy with classic and beautiful furnishings with modern conveniences added So charming was the lobby, live plants and fresh flowers and the valet were dressed in tux tails and top hats Thrilled to stay here! Their bar and restaurant were equally divine

Thanks for a lovely time here!

Extremely convenient and cool locationThe Hotel has a lot of history behind it, but the rooms weren’t worth the price (I do understand the price compared to location, etc) The room was immaculately clean, though

Just not as big as we thought it’d be for what we paidThe staff were fabulous, and extremely friendly They are the primary reason why we’d returnAll in all, a very fun place to visit

I stayed here about a month ago in March 2022 when Elton John was playing at the Xcel Energy Center across the street The location of the hotel for that was absolutely perfect It was a bit pricey but absolutely worth it for the convenience

The room was clean and well-maintained The staff were all really helpful and polite as well I actually had to call them after I got home (out of state), because I had forgotten my good pair of headphones in my room I was sure I’d never see them again, that they’d be gone forever However, the staff were able to find them and mail them back to meI would 100% stay here again if I was going to attend an event there across the street

Valencia Christensen

Key card wouldn’t work to let us into the building Someone else had to let us in Loud people yelling and running up and down the hallway late into the night

Food was left in the fridge from whoever stayed here before us For the price not worth it But for the convenience of being across from the concert Okay Customer service was awesome when checking in

Mark Stang

This is a food review of their first floor bar/sports pub We attended the first 2022 Wild home playoff game and had plenty of time for a pre-game meal My wife and I ordered: a bacon cheeseburger, order of traditional bone-in chicken wings and a side order of beer-battered onion rings

All 3 were excellant The onion rings were about the best I’ve had in a long time Despite the place being jammed just 90 minutes before game time, the wait staff was very attentive Well done

My family and I stopped here on our way through headed home from a week in the boundary waters Everyone was very friendly We booked late at night and showed up even later but the staff was very ready to help

Unfortunately we did not get the two double bed rooms we requested so that everyone could get their own bed but they did say they were full with a wedding and wrestling That being said It would have been really nice to know that it would not be what we requested before we got up to our roomsThat being said the 5 stars reflect the rest of our stay! My room was immaculate, the cookies were warm, the shower was so clean and refreshing, and the bed was incredibly comfortable The next morning we enjoyed a very hot and fresh breakfast on the second floor where Moe was very attentive to our coffee and needs! The coffee was fresh and hot and the bacon perfectly cooked! You could tell the staff are all hard workers!I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would like to personally thank each of the staff members we had the chance to interact with!

Matt Bozovsky

Friendly staff and great breakfast! I stayed for 2 nights in a king room The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable As mentioned in other reviews, the room was a little dated; however, nothing terrible

Parking was nice in the ramp, and the elevator opened right to the hotel lobby You do have to pay for breakfast, but there were a lot of options, and in my opinion, it was worth it I would recommend the hotel! There wasn’t a lot of traffic downtown on the weekend so that was nice as well

Rebecca Bang

First thing, great staff Every staff member we crossed paths with was pleasant and helpful Biggest kudos to Anita that checked us in

Gave info on best places to eat and gave hints on best way to navigate and get around downtown! The hotel is older as others have said and not a ton open as we thought would be Alliance Bank Center hard to get through and not a lot of restaurants open there like we thought, but still walking distance to Xcel Arena and other food options Overall room was clean, good price, restaurant in lobby was open, so overall, 5 stars because to me customer service makes or breaks it and their customer service is top notch

Great stay, super clean The restaurant was amazing Also, we hosted a breakfast party in one of the ballrooms and our server, Elsa, was beyond phenomenal

She went to every length to make sure our wants were satisfied, even thinking of things we didn’t ask for to make our party run smooth Wish I could find people like her for all our events! If you host an event, definitely ask for her to be your room server! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!


We had a fantastic stay over the weekend We were there in celebration of our daughters fifth birthday and the staff made it so special for her at every turn They even delivered a birthday amenity which included a JW teddy bear with a card signed by all the hotel staff for her

How thoughtful! Ben at the front desk at Terry at the bar were awesome along with many other staff we interacted with but didn’t catch their names Seriously one of the best hotels we’ve stayed at recently Thanks so much and we will be back soon!

Hannah Turley

The staff is friendly and attentive We ate breakfast at Cedar and Stone nearly every morning of our 5-night stay and were impressed with the quality and portions My husband is Marriott platinum elite and we were upgraded to a suite, which was a nice surprise

We enjoyed being able to relax in the living room area of our room Most importantly to me is that even though the hotel got pretty full during our mid-July stay, I never heard a peep from another room next to or above us I appreciated the ability to peacefully rest on my vacation without hearing noise from other rooms We will be back!

Decent hotel and the price wasn’t bad for the location Huge shoutout to Vivian in the breakfast lounge She is amazing and quite an asset to the hotel

Great hospitality!!! Unfortunately, I do have a couple of complaints: 1 We had no idea there was a free breakfast for guests until I was walking in the hotel the first morning after picking up McDonalds already There was nothing on my reservation confirmation and we weren’t told about it when we checked in That would’ve been nice to know before I spent money elsewhere on food 2 The south facing rooms definitely hear the interstate traffic outside We could hear it well in the morning when we were trying to sleep in 3 The blackout curtains in our room weren’t perfect at keeping the light outOther than these issues, our stay was acceptable and we were overall pleased with our stay The staff was very friendly Just wish they would’ve told us about the free buffet when we checked in

Lisa Hudson

(Due to a roach problem at the La Quinta in Bloomington, MN, I had to change hotels!)I found the Radisson online and checked in and I’m so glad I did! Excellent customer service! Beautifully decorated and clean rooms Prices were great and parking secure and enclosed

You need a ticket or Passcode to exitFree breakfast and even pet friendly Also great location, half mile from St Paul state capitol and expressways I will stay here again when I return!

Dylan Barth

The staff here was the most helpful hotel staff I’ve ever experienced Every interaction was helpful and positiveThe highlight was dropping my airpod down the elevator shaft

I thought I would never get it back and within 20 minutes it was hand delivered to meAbsolutely excellent experience Thankful for the folks who work here
