5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is not a swanky hotel, rather it's a charming little gem in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. With a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center, internet and many public spaces for congregating, the Best Western Normandy Inn & Suites does not disappoint. The owners have expanded the property since its beginnings in 1925, keeping the exterior and... More

We were very satisfied with our stay. We got in extremely late, and the service was fantastic. It made a stressful situation much better. My only complaint would be the beds! They were very soft! I would definitely stay here again though.

We were in town for Royals baseball and found the location to be great. We easily walked to and from the ballpark and other downtown attractions. The staff were nice, the room (a King suite) was big and very comfortable with a fridge and a pull out sofa. The parking was convenient, the rate was very fair and many spots... More

Very centrally located and nice clean rooms. This is an older property that has obviously been updated and taken care of. Excellent value if you want to be downtown and have easy access to TCF Bank stadium via a short cab ride or better yet via light rail. Close to many restaurants and clubs as well. I will definitely stay... More

I have stayed here twice while attending concerts in the vicinity and was upgraded to a suite the second time. I love the old look to the hotel on the inside, and the restaurant is awesome too. Will be staying there often . Highly recommend using their free shuttle, and the staff is very courteous and helpful. Highly recommend!

Check in was quick and easy. Lobby was very inviting. Staff was very polite and efficient. We enjoyed the restaurant/bar. Friendly service in both. Had a one bedroom suite. Room was clean and well appointed. The shower was huge with great water pressure although it would of been nice if it had a built in seat. Bed was very comfortable.... More

We had a club room poolside. It was a corner room and it was huge! Nice pool lounge areas. They were full of parents from a volleyball tourney having drinks and talking. I appreciated that we couldn't really hear them from inside the room. Beds were comfy, pillows were fantastic. Fridge in room. Microwave would have been handy, but wasn't... More

Found this hotel to be very good for a downtown business meeting. I took a Taxi to my meeting everyday because their shuttle did not go to the downtown street where my meeting was located. I did walk back to the hotel every day which took about 1/2 hour. The weather was beautiful. You could not do this in the... More
