American | Downtown / Loring Park, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

Going to a concert at Orchestra Place, we booked the Hyatt Regency for its close proximity to the venue. On a very wintry February weekend, the massive fireplace in the lobby area was a cheery welcome, complete with cozy spots to repose while waiting on friends, a town car, or with a drink from the nearby restaurant/bar. The staff was equally welcoming, making check-in a breeze and even presenting guests with roses (it was Valentine's weekend). Though they were quite busy with people coming and going to dinner and shows, the valet staff was prompt and efficient. We elected to dine on site at the Prairie Kitchen & Bar, having checked it out online ahead of time. The restaurant was making some menu changes and operating on a more limited menu than featured online, but they went to the trouble of preparing an appetizer we wanted to order, even though it was now off menu. And while other menu items we anticipated ordering were also absent, the dishes we experienced were wonderful, and our server Jessica was a delight as well. We would dine there again even if we weren't guests. Our room was well-appointed with fridge, coffee maker, etc. We especially liked that the bath had a separate vanity area next to the sink for applying makeup. We opted for the city view, which gave us some distance from the elevators, and we slept uninterrupted from 1:00am to 9:00am. Thank you very much! The front of the property is a little tricky to get to, but that's not uncommon in downtown Minneapolis with the buses, commuter trains, one-ways, etc. All-in-all, we felt the entire staff at the Hyatt Regency went the extra mile to make certain we had a great stay. We will definitely return and highly recommend this hotel to others. More

Discover Minneapolis

Minneapolis and the Twin Cities have much to offer, from local specialties to American favorites to international cuisine. Here, you can find mom-and-pop places offering famously huge blueberry pancakes and the pastry delicacy called a Hi-Top. You can also enjoy a number of eateries featuring award-winning chefs and inventive cuisines from around the world. Family-run Eastern European delis offering house-cured meats sit alongside cutting-edge vegetarian places. It's not a proper visit to the city without sampling another native creation, the cheese-stuffed hamburger known as a Juicy Lucy. The Upper Midwest hospitality and its embrace of deliciously diverse dining experiences put Minneapolis on every foodie's map.
