I can't begin to express how amazing the Best Western Premier Inn was for my wedding in October. From the first meeting with Katie to the last minute of the night she was so helpful and accommodating. The food was amazing. Not a single guest had anything bad to say about our... Read More food. With me being so picky there were so many options for me to pick through. We had our ceremony there and they did the room flip really fast for our reception. The staff during the reception were very attentive to our needs and our guest needs. You get a lot of service and help from the entire staff at the hotel. The ability to have our full wedding their and stay the night helped ease all the stress. The room blocks went very smooth for my guests that needed rooms. If you need a place to hold your whole wedding or even part of it I recommend going here.

The perfect venue! One of the reasons why I chose the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn was because it was literally the package deal, and for a great price. It had everything I wanted: a hotel to stay at the night before and the night of, space to get ready in, a restaurant for... Read More the rehearsal dinner, and space for having the ceremony and reception. It made things so easy and less stressful! Katie and the rest of the staff are so wonderful. Katie was so easy to work with and ensured everything was just the way I wanted it to be. Communication via email was so quick. All of the "little things" that went unplanned or I didn't think about ended up working out amazingly and effortlessly due to the great staff at the venue. Thank you guys so much! Highly recommend this venue. For the high quality, size, and location of the Nicollet Inn for the metro area, it is extremely generously priced. Worth every penny - our day was amazing!!

We highly recommend the Nicollet Inn! The space is beautiful: the grand ballroom had plenty of room for our 200 guests, the foyer was perfect for social hour, there was an executive boardroom offered as an extra for holding gifts or making a bridal suite, and the guest rooms... Read More were clean, comfortable, and modern. There are several great areas around the inside and outside of the hotel to take pictures. We used uplighting and lighted ceiling draping (extra costs by outside vendors) to enhance the atmosphere in the ballroom. But what we appreciated most was the extremely friendly, helpful, knowledge, and happy staff. We worked with Cathy at the beginning and Katy later on. They were nothing short of amazing! They made everything so easy for us. The catering staff during the reception was amazing as well! Katy and the catering supervisor (I didn't catch his name) were there making sure everything went smoothly. They really know what they are doing! Our guests loved the place as well (and we had some picky guests). An extra bonus is that the hotel bar was open late and a lot of our guests popped over there after midnight when the reception ended. We honestly couldn't have been happier with the staff and space, and we highly recommend the Nicollet Inn!

We had our Wedding Reception at the Nicollet Inn on September 17th and everything was perfect. We worked with Cathy and she was absolutely amazing. Cathy worked very hard to ensure that every detail was just as requested, she went way above and beyond our expectations. The... Read More rest of the staff at the hotel was very helpful as well and made sure everything was to our liking. It was so convenient having the reception at the hotel. I was a busy bride and had to run up to our room about 3 times during the reception to get forgotten needed items. I can only imagine what we would have done had I not been able to go to our room. All of our guests said this was the best wedding they had been to in a long time. I definitely recommend the Nicollet Inn as a wedding reception venue or for any other event.

My wedding was in September of 2016. When we arrived to check in they had mixed up some of the rooms but they made it right and fixed everything. Since it ended up raining we were able to take some of our photos in the bar area and they let us use the area by the fireplace.... Read More Photos turned out great. Food at the reception was amazing! I liked that they provided the centerpieces so I didn't have to purchase anything but the candles. There was a couple of servers that kept taking peoples drinks when they weren’t finished with them. The bartender they had working all weekend in the Morgan’s restaurant was really slow and not attentive to anyone that was around the bar. It took him almost 10 minutes to notice me standing at the bar (in my wedding dress) for him to ask if I needed anything and it was 4pm on a Friday and the restaurant wasn’t busy. Morgan’s Sunday brunch is amazing! I would recommend eating there to anyone who is in the area.

My husband and I were recently married and hosted our wedding reception at the Nicollet Inn. The moment someone recommended the hotel and we looked up photos we were pleasantly surprised. What looks like a standard, run of the mill hotel from the outside is anything but once you... Read More step inside. The decor is modern, updated and beautiful, the staff is attentive and helpful and the service was incredible overall. Jaime assisted us in finalizing the details of our wedding, and we were blown away with her sincerity, attention to detail, and willingness to make our day special. She worked with us to ensure the vision we had been dreaming and imagining came to life. She helped coordinate a time we could get in and set up, and assisted in utilizing extra flowers and decor to make sure our event really looked stunning. She coordinated with our vendors to make the entire day seamless. We selected a duet plate of both steak and chicken for our meal and received a lot of wonderful feedback. The portions were generous, and the food was cooked wonderfully- not overcooked and had wonderful flavors. Overall, the hotel was perfect for our wedding size, look and feel. The value you receive at Nicollet is phenomenal- it's truly a 5 star experience. Our day turned out perfect and a large portion of that has to do with the incredible facility and staff at Nicollet Inn. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone looking to host a wedding or even smaller event. You will not be disappointed!

This is such a great location with a lovely view all year round. The food was amazing. The staff is patient and considerate.
