Nice location and hotel near downtown and the Vikings stadium which is under construction. Rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. The bed was a bit too soft but the 10:00 PM chocolate chip cookies were great. Close to plenty of dining choices and the Nice Ride bicycles. Good value and a pleasant weekend hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights last week. Hotel is very nice. Surprising for a hotel built in 1925. Well kept up and recently refurbished. Staff were consistently very helpful. Room was very clean. Food in restaurant was better than many restaurants we tried. Shuttle drivers to the convention center were wonderful - so helpful. Only complaint related to construction going... More

Stayed here for my son's Graduation from College based on the previous reviews. Very difficult to check in because of a large street repair project going on in front of the hotel. Once we were able to do that, we found our room to be neat, clean and spacious. We arrived back at the hotel around 10:30 pm and found... More

On behalf of our entire team we would like to apologize for the noise problems you had during your stay. The road construction in front of the hotel is in preparations for the new Vikings stadium being built only 4 blocks away. We anticipate the construction to be passed the hotel in the next couple of weeks. We also were... More

Had a concert at Target Center, so we booked rooms at the Normandy Inn. This is a FANTASTIC hotel. The price is reasonable. The Staff are amazing, and I don't think that I have ever been in a hotel that is cleaner or quieter. I mean CLEAN. EVERYWHERE!! The Normandy Kitchen has really good food too!! I highly recommend trying... More

Stayed here before and always goes well. The staff are all very pleasant and professional. Easy and reasonably priced in and out parking. Unique styled building kept very clean. Only downside was having no elevator while there. The front desk people were quick to offer assistance with bags but it was down for our 2 night stay with no one... More

Stayed here with a Road Scholar group. I found the hotel clean, accommodating and comfortable if not luxurious. There was an attached restaurant for extra meals that was quite good. The only downside for me is that the mattress was too soft. Also, an elevator got stuck while I was there. Fortunately, I wasn't in it, but somebody else was.

Spent one night here and it was great. Great location, great parking, clean room. Had one issue with the room and if I would have brought it to the desk's attention I am sure it would have been fixed(or room moved). Wifi was absolutely fastest I have ever seen in a hotel that offered free wifi. If I ever have... More

I loved this hotel!!! I have stayed countless times in the Twin Cities area and never had a clue this place existed. I will absolutely stay there again. Impressed with the décor-they have taken great care of this legendary hotel. Great staff, great breakfast, and lovely rooms.

Gotta say, having never heard of the place prior to a night there for a business trip--I was concerned when my cab pulled up. Walking in though, the remodel recently done is very well maintained, and the whole facility very clean. Rooms were very clean and well kept also. The restaurant/bar in the lobby is fine for hotel food--a short... More

This is a nice, comfortable, and clean hotel conveniently located on the edge of the downtown core. There are some nice restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price we paid was a bargain for the area.
