... there. What also struck was the majority of the people on the cruise were morbidly obese Americans, and they were catered for well with two shore landings that had 'concession stands' so that you could reload your soda or buy assorted junk food.
The next big thing to strike us was the storm as we were driving into our destination for the night. We were staying at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis and as we got nearer, the traffic and rain got heavier so it ...
... burger at the Illinois Bar & Grill. Wasn't too bad! I sat at a table across from a guy - and we got chatting and had a great talk over our burgers! I would say he is in his mid 50's or so. He flies frequently for work and has got 2.5 million miles! Crazy! He was telling me all the places in the USA which are worth seeing and which places are not worth seeing. A really nice guy, glad I got to meet him! Headed over to my gate after lunch and waited to board my flight. Went ...

... Tots, eggplant parm, stir fry, mashed potatoes, broccoli, salmon and basically anything else imaginable. Thanks to our friend Stefan we felt like bums on thanksgiving day at a soup kitchen!!!! After rolling each other out of the establishment we were pleasantly greeted by sing alongs back in the dorm room, some real stand up Minnesota fellas trying to make a difference! They weren't scared of our cookies, taser or Stefan's overly sexual advances ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Hotel Minneapolis
I recently spent 5 days at the Millennium; I had booked through the housing office of an association that was having its annual event in Minneapolis. After booking, I read the reviews here, so I was a bit apprehensive about staying there. I shouldn't have been, as it was a wonderful hotel. The staff was welcoming, and put forth a best effort every minute of every day to make my stay a good one. My room was small, but cozy and THOUGHTFULLY appointed. I LOVED that it had windows I could open so I could enjoy the spectacularly cool, dry air at night. It's convenient to walk all over downtown, and on the one day it rained, I used the skywalks. The food was good in all venues, and the wait service was in a "best ever" category. The small, but delightfully furnished lobby and Martini bar (with live piano music), was a great place to meet friends, and talk business. I would not hesitate to book there again. I had a GREAT time.
We stayed at the Millennium Hotel in Feb. I was very excited to stay there because we had heard such encouraging things about it from friends and family who live in MN. I found a good rate on the internet. One hundred dollars a night and it was to include parking. We were visiting a lot of friends in Minneapolis that weekend as well as celebrating my birthday and another couple decided to join us at the hotel for a night. When calling to make reservstions we were assured that we would have ajoining deluxe rooms and there would be a complimentary breakfast in the morning. When we arrived the evening of our reservations we found that we had been lied to. When we checked in they told us they would be adding $12 to our bill for parking. I showed the man at the desk the print out I had with our reservation and confirmation number on it. It listed the ammenities including the free parking. He stated that he could not give us free parking because he didn't know how to make the adjustments on the computer. We then asked when the complimentary breakfast (they had promised us when making reservations)started in the morning. He told us we were welcome to purchase tickets for the breakfast in the morning but there was no complimentary breakfast. After finally getting checked in we made our way to our rooms only to find that our rooms were on opposite ends of the floor from eachother rather than being ajoined. Instead than hanging out in our extremly small and poorly maintained rooms (that looked nothing like the pictures on their site or in thier flyer) we decided to go down to the spa and hang out. When we got to the pool we found it to be dirty and small with no spa (as was mentioned on their web-site). By this time I was frustrated and went to the front desk to complain. The man argued with me that the web-site made no claim of a spa. When I asked him to pull up the hotels web-site on his computer and there was the mention of the spa he said it must have been referring to the spa at the gym down the street that I could purchase a discounted ticket to for $7 a person. Feeling more angry than anything we decided to go to the Martini bar that was raved about on their web-site. They bragged about being able to make over 30 different kinds of Martinis. The drinks ended up being small, watered down and over priced. The security guard the hovered over us also took away from the atmosphere. About 10pm we got fed up with being babysat by their security and decided to head up to our rooms. My fiance walked to the corner to get some beers for us to have in our room. When he re-entered the hotel the security guard questioned him. When he told her that he was a paying tenet at the hotel that night she didn't believe him and walked him up to our room and knocked on the door asking me if he really was staying with me in my room (even though he had already showed her his room key). When checking out the next morning I once again expressed my frustrations. The man at the desk said she could do nothing. I asked to speak to the manager and he told me that he wouldn't be in until 1:00 (one hour after check out time). It wasn't until 3 weeks later when I wrote to the corp. headquarters and threatened to report their company to the better business bureau that they refunded my credit card half of the bill. Needless to say we will never stay there again!!!
Wedding was wonderful...but sleeping rooms could use help
I stayed at this hotel last October '03 for a wedding that took place in the Large Ballroom. The wedding was great and everyone had a good time. The rooms however are another story. There are cords lying around the room, heater/cooler is out of date, the room is small, the rooms/decor are old, the restaurant was nothing to brag about and the staff at the front desk was very rude, especially one of the supervisors. Overall, the hotel did a wonderful job on the wedding but the rooms could use a little help. Parking was nice that it was next to the hotel and directions to the hotel were very easy. I would stay there again but ask for an updated Millennium Classic Room. We, unfortunately, stayed in the Standard room.
The standard hotel room is very small and the beds are doubles, not queen sized. I was told when I called initially that I could add a roll away bed to the room, but to make the request when we arrived. Upon arrival, I made the request and was told that it would be brought up immediately. When it did not arrive, I called the front desk, only to be told that I could not have a rollaway bed in the room as it was a fire hazard and the hotel would be fined. There was definitely a communication problem with the front desk. We were also told that children 2 and under ate the breakfast buffet for free, but when we ate there the next day, they were charged the same as any other child.
Changed our reservations
Stayed at the Millenium on Feb 7th and 8th. Overall the stay was nice, unfortunately we didnt recieve the upgraded millenium style room as promised and as paid for but the room was satisfactory. Martinis in the lobby are overpriced and wateredown. Staff is very helpful though, was a good stay, but it is at the opposite side of the skyway to most downtown shopping. Right beside the convention center and also next to the best meal i have ever eaten (Ichiban).
We stayed in February 2003 for Valentines Day. This hotel is great!!
Very quiet, but not guest friendly
We stayed for one Friday night in October. Pros- Our room was very quiet and we slept well on very comfortable beds. Cons- Desk clerks were not the least bit friendly. We were charged more than the rate quoted on the phone, which they very reluctantly agreed to adjust. The sink leaked and the shower did not work properly.
We stayed at the Millennium this past weekend for $99.00 + 13%tax per night. My husband and son had tickets for the Packer/Viking game and we wanted to stay somewhat close to the Metrodome so they didn't have to drive to the game. The hotel is at the far end of Nicolet Ave, close to the convention center.
A Very Acceptable Hotel
This hotel was fine. Looks like the lobby was recently renovated, but guest rooms only received new furnature. Bathrooms are small and very dated, but overall, a very acceptable hotel.
Trouble at the Millennium
Stayed at this hotel on 8/02..awakened middle of night with fire alarms blaring..walked down from 4th floor...no fire..waited for 45 minutes in nightwear..finally able to return to room. Then the alarms rang again at 8 am...and at 10:30 while having breakfast there..No offer of discount on our bill however...lost a lot of sleep too.
