We stayed here for one night before we were leaving Minneapolis. They have a free shuttle to the airport, and given the layout of MSP, I opted to return the rental car in the night before our flight, and we just took the shuttle to the airport. That saved us a lot of hassle. The shuttle drivers were friendly and... More

I am wiring this review as we are staying here. My family and I have been staying here for a few days. The room is a bit out dated. Even though, it's clean and a great value. Morning breakfast is great and the evening social gatherings (dinner) Mon-Thur is just as good if not better. Pet friendly. The cooking team... More

Great location it's literally just down the street from the Mall of America. The staff was friendly and the lady working the breakfast area was wonderful. Breakfast was good they mixed it up so the main dish was different daily. The room was a little out dated but clean, comfortable, and roomy which was great for my 2 year old.... More

We arrived MN three nights ago for the ProStart culinary competition happening this weekend at the Hyatt Hotel. We had the option to stay at the Hyatt for a cheaper rate, but we chose to make arrangement and stay at the Residence Inn in Bloomington because the management, at the time we were making hotel arrangements, were willing to work...

Firstly, the room (worth well over $200 per night) was dirty and outdated. Not worth the money. Not to mention the walls are no where near insulated; which brings me to my next point. The customer service was absolutely disgusting. The hotel claims to be pet friendly, which, of course, comes with some barking of dogs that stay. There were... More

Fairly good location, convenient to both airport and Mall of America, reasonably clean, they have shuttles to both locations, but I did not use. Parking is free but hard to find a spot. Rooms are very large, with large fridges and microwave, a little table. Lots of restaurants nearby. Great service.

Our family of five stayed on a Saturday night while attending a concert at the Target Center. This hotel was very clean and well-kept. The bed was very comfortable. My husband, (bad back) said he could not remember the last time he'd slept so well. Hallways were quiet too. The only problems we encountered were that we couldn't check in... More

We rented 3 double room suites from here in January, for four nights, for a funeral. The wait staffs in the dining room breakfast room were phenomenal.

We stay here for the 2nd bedroom. The first night the rooms were cold and never warmed up too much. The second night we raised the thermostat, and the 2nd bedroom was still cold. Granted it was a very cold night in Minneapolis. The outlets were worn and loose in several places. The complimentary breakfast area had a personnel problem.... More
