Map & Directions

The Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown is a 20- to 25-minute drive from Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. The city's METRO Blue Line is a half-hour ride from the airport to the Nicollet Mall Station, which is a five-minute walk from the hotel. The Blue Line also connects to the Mall of America. 

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Fully renovated in 2014 to the tune of $28 million, the revamped Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown ranks as one of the top five hotels in town on by TripAdvisor members.

Standard guest rooms offer minimalist Scandinavian-inspired styling and are a decent size, at 350 square feet, with a choice of a king or two double beds. Free Wi-Fi is standard, as is Lavazza coffee in-room. The hotel also has an express laundry service -- clothes come back in three hours -- and a full business center. Even folks not prepared for a workout should check out the fitness center -- the 17th-floor location has some great skyline views. The hotel's connection to the city's Skyway system ensures that guests remain comfortable indoors while wandering the immediate area.

The hotel's on-site restaurant, FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar, serves an upscale American breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, and the full menu is available in-room for most of the day. Praised by the Star-Tribune and Gayot, FireLake offers a "commitment to locally sourced ingredients as well as [the chef's] well-practiced knack for pleasing a wide range of appetites" (Star-Tribune). 

Located in the center of the city's downtown, the Radisson Blu is close to the Target Center, Target Field, bustling Hennepin Avenue, the Nicollet Mall and light rail transportation on the city's METRO. The Mall of America is just a 20-minute drive away, and is also connected to the light rail system.

Natasha warmly welcomed us. We liked the room, the restaurant, the location. Charles, the bellman was awesome. Personable, charming, and very aware of all that was going around him. We appreciate the underground parking.

Charged for room service that I didn't use. I paid for my breakfast at the firelake grill using a totally different card.

Would prefer to use the Radisson at the mall. Business class was not the greatest, again if I'm making comparison to mall. Fruit in the business class was not fresh, some of it was rotten.

The fact that the housekeeper for room1014 during our stay turned in the 2 pairs of dress shoes that I left. Judy and Nicole in the lost and found were very helpful and helped me get my shoes returned. Judy is from the town I currently live in!

The valet and bartending staff were very friendly. It had a really good location for our time in Minneapolis with access to the train.

When we arrived we found our room could not accommodate having our son with us. There was no sleeper sofa. A Junior suite just meant fortunately we could squeeze in a rollaway that eventually came to our room for him. We were not impressed with the room either, no outside windows. We really felt like we wasted extra money to get a suite that offered nothing. We would have been better off with getting a standard two bed room.
