Reasonable price for a downtown Minneapolis hotel. Beautiful architecture. Comfortable beds. You pay an additional $8 for parking. My check in experience could have been better. The young man behind the counter lacked personality and was far too serious.

This is a gem of a place to stay. We'd stay there again. The room was clean, very quiet, and had free osmosis-filtered water available. We were new to the area, so we had questions about restaurants, Guthrie Theater, etc.The desk staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. They even offered shuttle service to the Guthrie Theater that was very... More

The hotel has it's own restaurant with good food and drink. The rooms were very comfortable and accessible. Ice and filtered water were easily available. There was a guest laundry room where you could do your own laundry, a real plus for us since we were on a two week vacation. The fitness room was next to the laundry room!... More

This hotel is amazing. As an architecture major, the design and feel of this hotel was great. The rooms were clean and the beds were so comfortable! I slept like a baby. Not to mention the decent price for a chain hotel in downtown Minneapolis. I would have given this a 5 star rating but I thought it was a... More

The Normandy was the best value for a last-minute reservation needed for the Minneapolis Convention Center. Very nice room, free shuttle service to and from the Convention Center--just perfect for a business conference.

hotel was very nice and clean. great location to the area around Target Field. We walked every where, although they did have a free shuttle to the game. We had a suite, which worked good for four people. Will use this hotel again!

It was an Excellent Stay. The quality and size of the rooms are good and priced reasonably. I especially liked the pool area. The restaurant food was alright. The staff were helpful. The hotel is not far away from Nicollet Mall, which was a plus. Overall, I would stay at this hotel.

Stayed here for just one night passing through on a road-trip. The staff was excellent - when Joey heard this was my first trip to Minneapolis and I was only staying for one night, he made sure to give me a room with an excellent view! Thank you! The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Parking was a breeze... More

It is good hotel but experience could have been better if breakfast was included for stay and local office drop off. I would have appreciate airport pick up facility. Skyway facility should have been there. Restaurant closes early for late comer

I've stayed at hotels in Minneapolis before and they all have been nice. The problem is that they are all fairly pricey. This Best Western Plus Normandy was as nice as the others plus it was reasonable. I didn't have time to check the pool but they did have a nice bar area by the lobby. The hotel is in... More
