Millennium Hotel Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minnesota – Review
Situated on Nicolette Mall, the locally-celebrated and renowned street that runs through the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the Millennium Hotel Minneapolis sits at the very head of it all. Indeed, one can take in vistas of the city’s skyscrapers and downtown area from a north-facing room or from the various meeting and event spaces on the 14th floor, including the Millennium’s iconic Dome room.
The lobby’s lounge area was both large and cozy, with a glass-encased fireplace and ample seating. Various groupings of chairs, couches, and loungers were accented by floor-to-ceiling windows, which provided expansive views of the busy streets outside.
Check-in was swiftly accomplished, and I was off to my room.
The Millennium Hotel Minneapolis recently completed a $22 million renovation, and this was evident from the moment I stepped into my Superior Room. From the new 37” plasma screen TV, to the sleek and modern workspace, to the plush bedding, everything seemed to be brand new.
The room itself felt a tad on the small side, though this was perhaps the result of a king-size bed, armchair, footrest, floor lamp, and dresser and workspace beneath the TV being crammed into the space, and, as all of these were necessary (and cozy) features, I’m not complaining.
Bedside tables with overhead lamps were provided, and sufficient electrical outlets were conveniently located. Reading lights, on easily adjustable flexible stalks, were mounted on either side of the bed.
Large windows afforded an excellent view of the city’s skyline as well as the adjacent buildings across the street.
