Pros: The hotel is within the University of Minnesota and is only a short walk to many restaurants that populate the campus. If you are in a rush, there is a Starbucks connected to the lobby. The hotel also has a nice fitness center as well as free guest passes to the University's recreational center. Finally, the hotel is quiet.
Cons: The price is a bit too steep. I have stayed at various hotels with the same quality and amenities but at a cheaper price. The WiFi was also on the slow end for this price point.

Pros: The location on campus is great! Parking behind the hotel is convenient. The lobby and facilities are wonderful. Staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Starbucks is right off the lobby.
Cons: The room had a slightly musty smell to it. It wasn't as bad with the window open. I did not take the time to notify the hotel about this. If I had I am confident they would have attempted to rectify the issue. Parking is expensive and the lot is often full during busy times.

Pros:
Cons: The air conditioning didn't work which kept it a balmy 78 degrees. Reported it to the front desk and they promptly got someone to look at it. After returning from our evening we were presented their solution ... an open window
