Kitschy and cool
We were in town to attend appointments at the U of M and the graduate was the icing on cake. What adorable fun rooms, amazing location, and comfortable beds.

A great hidden place in Minneapolis
Despite it's literally in the middle of the Minnesota University Campus and a little tough for cabs to find, The hotel was Amazing and very lively with students invading the hall with their laptops and bags. I did like the vibe. The restaurant is also nice. I truly enjoy the stay. The rooms are nice, clean and renewed with a "College" style. Definitely a worthy place

All staff were amazing! There was a problem with their computer system which slowed check in and the staff went out of their way to take care of us waiting.

Loved the Purple Rain lamp - among other things
I stayed at this hotel, located on the campus of University of Minnesota, during Winter Break, so my review may not totally reflect the usual hotel experience. That said, my stay was great, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms were very comfortable and designed with humor and whimsy. The lobby area was very attractive, with lots of seating areas and fun things to look at and do. The staff was helpful. The bar/restaurant was reasonably priced. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant. I was in town doing research for my dissertation, so I enjoyed the hotel's lighthearted focus on academia. I also appreciated the many nods to the things and people that make Minneapolis great. For example - a lamp in my room had a Little Red Corvette as a base, and the shade was covered in the fabric that looked like the cover of the Purple Rain album (RIP, Prince).
