I was so pleasantly surprised upon checking into The Normandy Inn. From the super friendly greeting at the front desk to the milk and cookies at bedtime, this was just the perfect family place. On-site parking with in/out privileges is so convenient. Location is great -- easy walk to the train. Would definitely recommend Normandy Inn and look forward to... More

The hotel is clean, fairly recently remodeled, and has a friendly and helpful front-desk staff. We also liked the fact that they have filtered water dispensers by the ice machines. On the other hand, there seemed to be zero sound-proofing insulation between the rooms. It really was as if our noisy neighbors, talking in the middle of the night, were... More

I love staying in this hotel. In the 3 times I have traveled to Minneapolis for business we have stayed in this location. The staff there is always so considerate and helpful. The suites are fantastic for the size and space for the price. This is the first time I had used the restaurant and it was amazing. It is... More

I booked this hotel some months ago based on price and location to Target Field. We were on our last days of a one month cross country road trip. The hotel and the city were a pleasant surprise. Loved the idea that the hotel was a historical hotel as well but with all new amenities. Lots of little extras like... More

I have stayed at the Normandy Inn multiple times while in Minneapolis to visit family. They are pet friendly which is very valuable to us. We have stayed other places in the city but the value, proximity to downtown and very friendly staff make it our "go to" place

The entire experiences was great for my work trip. The only negative experience was a couple of the restaurant employees were a little too rushed with helping us, yet the food took a long time to come out. The food itself was amazing though.

I recently spent 5 days at this hotel while in town for a conference. What a wonderful experience. Not only was it incredibly convenient (just about 3 blocks from Government Plaza Light Rail) and a short walk to Nicollet Mall, but I felt as though I was in a mid-west lodge right in downtown Minneapolis. The staff was exceptionally helpful... More
