Nicollet Island Inn was an absolutely fabulous venue for our wedding reception. It is the perfect combination of whimsy, charm, and vintage. We loved that our bridal party and family could stay there all weekend in the guest rooms! Unfortunately, we were unsatisfied with our experience with the event coordinator - we didn't feel that this person was excited to help us make our wedding dreams come true, nor did our event seem like a priority. Sadly, for this reason we would not recommend the Inn to others. We hope staffing and/or attitudes change soon, because it's a lovely place!

We have enjoyed going to the Nicollet Island Inn since 2009. The hotel rooms are nice and the restaurant has excellent service and food.

We held our wedding and reception here on Dec. 7, 2013. The Special Events Director, Sarah Gruber, was very accommodating, flexible, and wonderful to work with.

We couldn’t be more pleased with how the event turned out. We are still receiving compliments from guests on the food, décor, and location.

I would definitely recommend a wedding at Nicollet Island Inn. The venue is wonderfully vintage but also embodies Minneapolis' trendy, hip scene. There are great places for pictures in the area. The food is to die for. After the wedding, the party walked up to Nye's Polonaise Room and closed the bar down giving us a fabulous end to an absolutely wonderful day.

The Nicollet Island Inn did a wonderful job holding both our ceremony and dinner! They were very accomodating and flexible about creating just the right atmosphere and menu for our guests. Even making a point to customize the printed menu to reflect food items not to order due to allergies some of our guests have! Bill who was the Manager on that evening was so attentive and made sure everyone's needs were met! We could not have been happier! Our guests loved the food and we loved that we had a beautiful elegant evening at such a reasonable price.
