I would recommend this hotel...
Pros: I did not take advantage of the shuttle service nor avail myself of the metro line that stopped outside the door, but both were nice to have available and I might use them if I go to MSP on another trip. Breakfast offerings were varied and very good for this type of hotel.
Cons: I couldn't get the hotel to answer the phone on numerous times when I called before my trip. The Booking.com confirmation said no parking and no WiFi. As I am a Hilton Honors member, I had free WiFi and parking was readily available. The hot water for tea was in an urn that had clearly been used for coffee before and retained a coffee taste. On my second morning, I asked the breakfast staff to get me a separate cup of hot water and they did.

A great place to stay...
Pros: The hotel was extremely nice for the money, incredibly clean, and the staff could not have been any nicer or more helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable.
Cons: Nothing. It was about as good as it could have been.

Okay
Pros: Decent breakfast selection
Cons: Double queen rooms have an oddly placed barn door latch on the bathroom door frame, multiple wedding party guests had bruises from it on their arms. Our king suite did not have this latch, much to our relief. Beds were too firm. A wedding guest of ours in 514 had the smoke detector going off late at night. Staff did not have the correct battery so removed the smoke detector. Left voicemails and messages via booking.com for early check-ins on multiple bookings and we were never replied too nor confirmed. Even when trying to call them the day of, just went to voicemail. Upon checking out, staff would not print out a room total for our room because "we had booked via booking.com" Frustrating, as I always check for incorrect charges. Super slow elevators.
