I found this amazing company after having a less than ideal hotel experience recently. We decided to check AirBnb and VRBO for potential rentals in Minneapolis for our time at the new PGA Tour event, the 3M Open. We stumbled upon this amazing rental offered by Lyric. After digging deep and researching the company, I found that Lyric’s rentals have outstanding reviews! A kitchen complete with all the essentials, our own washer & dryer, and access to a fully-equipped gym within a nice apartment building? Count us in! The extra perks made this rental a no-brainer for us!
Smart TV (Smylie’s favorite perk)
Locally roasted coffee beans with everything you need to make a barista-level cup of coffee (My dream!)
Frette Linens and Towels
Malin & Goetz Toiletries
Digital Access to Unit
Suite Support (24/7 concierge available to call or text)
What is Lyric?
We found Lyric’s customer service to be top-notch. With “Suite Support”, guests can call or text with any questions or concerns at any time during their stay.
Lyric currently requires a 2 night minimum stay and can be rented directly through the Lyric website, Airbnb, VRBO, and others. We booked directly through the Lyric website. Here’s a little tip: if your dates are not available on one site, be sure to check others as different units are rented through different platforms.
How is it different from a regular rental?
As I do with any new rental property, I held my breath as I walked in the door for the first time. I was thrilled to find the apartment was EXACTLY as pictured! Also, the check-in process was seamless. We were texted the door code promptly at check-in time (3pm). Upon arrival, we checked in with the concierge of the apartment building who checked our IDs then granted us access to the elevator. Once at our unit, we simply typed in our code on the digital keypad. Keys were located right inside the door to access the building/elevators for the remainder of the week. A warm welcome of sweet and salty snacks (chocolate covered almonds and handmade potato chips) plus two Voss water bottles were waiting for us on the kitchen counter.
As I mentioned earlier, my favorite touch was the local coffee beans accompanied by instructions and equipment to make a pour-over. It was the best way to start our day!
The washer & dryer included supplies such as laundry pods and dryer sheets to make doing our laundry a breeze. During our stay, we cooked several meals and our unit was stocked with all the kitchen equipment we needed! The bed was very comfortable and we loved the Malin and Goetz toiletries that were provided!
Smylie and I loved the large windows throughout the apartment. This provided beautiful views of downtown Minneapolis.
Our rental also included use of all the amenities the apartment building had to offer. On the 31st floor, there was a fully-equipped gym making it easy to get a workout in at our convenience.
The rooftop patio wrapped around the building with views of the city including Target Field (where the Twins play) and US Bank Stadium (where the Vikings play). A community gas grill, a fire pit, and a pool table available for use by guests are also located on the 31st floor.
