This stylish, downtown gem attracts sophisticated couples and older groups of friends seeking central accommodations, chic decor and modern amenities. Hotel Ivy is set in a landmark Minneapolis building connected to the city's Skyway, a network of enclosed bridges that allow pedestrians to access most of downtown without ever being subjected to the cold.
Rooms are modern with great city views, huge bathrooms with deep soaker tubs, and local art on the walls. Some guests have complained of inattentive housekeeping staff and limited room service hours. Fees for Wi-Fi are pesky and so is the lack of a business center, though it's also a hint that this a leisure hotel.
Amenities include a fantastic spa with a whirlpool, a sauna and a wealth of massage treatments. The on-site restaurant is frequented by locals and tourists alike and serves coastal Italian cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails. This hotel sways classy over trendy and the clientele sways the same way.
