I have been staying at the Nicollet Island Inn for years now and love the place. I travel there at least 10 times in a year. It has that bed and breakfast feel but has been updated and modernized. The staff is wonderful, efficient and appears to really like working there. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The Nicollet Island Inn is a romantic and elegant hotel with an old world feel but top notch amenities with great attention to detail and good value for the price. We chose to stay there on a three day weekend to visit our daughter in the city and were continually delighted by the beauty and décor of the hotel, its...

This place has been known for its brunch but it may not be known for the fun date brunch when the weather is stormy. Best is foul weather( yes I said that) because the space transforms energetically during a snowstorm or in pouring rain to feel like a safe haven on the river. It is freakishly magical during deep snow...

From the moment we entered the Inn doors we encountered warm, friendly and knowledgable staff, no matter where we were in the facility. We love the Inn's architecture, interior appointments, and location. Our Queen room was typical of a B & B in a very old structure, charming and a little uneven, with pleasant views out the deep windows. Beverages...

Short story...Go, it's a perfect break away from life while grandma has the kids! Slightly longer story.... Being our 10th wedding anniversary we wanted something special (we booked the weekend romance package) and not too expensive (gulp...see note below). We booked well in advance and booked room 309 (beautiful king room with stunning views). The room was perfect in that...

After reading reviews on NII we decided to stay the night as part of our "date weekend". Making the reservation was difficult. After I made the reservation and paid for it the receptionist couldn't find it. He said to call back in a few days and that maybe it would have crossed into their system by then so I did...

The overall experience was wonderful. Such a charming restaurant great for a romantic/special dinner. The only comment I would make is the staff never offered us coffee with dessert of after dinner drinks. The price for the Lobster Fest (dinner for 2) was appropriate. We will return again in the future.

My husband surprised me with a stay here during their lobster week special. The rooms are very pretty, wallpapered, nice linens and pretty antiques. The room came with two robes. The hotel was very charming and nicely decorated. It is definitely romantic like a B&B but provides more privacy! The restaurant provided a nice view of the river and the...

This was our second trip to the Inn. Our first encounter was for dinner only. We loved the ambiance, service and, of course , the food. We "discovered" the very talented piano lady, but was abit dismayed at the 10:30 closing. Our last visit was for our sixth anniversary. We stayed one night at the Inn, had a delicious dinner,...

Rated 15 of 46 seems absurd and bizarre. We've stayed here a half dozen times over the past 20-30 and the 24 rooms in the island in the Mississippi are phenomenal. The bar and restaurant alone are tops in the Cities. TJF brunch is a main stay in the Twin Cities. The staff is superb, crack crew. The amenities and...
