Good location in downtown Minneapolis. Good hotel that has been updated. Walking distance (about a mile) to the baseball stadium and basketball arena. Is just blocks from new football stadium opening in fall 2016.

The location was spot on and the building itself had a nice quant charm. Parking is self parking for $8 a day. The service was very friendly. The room was lacking a few amenities - no blow dryer and no microwave. The beds were full size - not queens, but comfortable. We got a poolside view on the first floor... More

On a business trip earlier this year I arrived late, tired, and grumpy. Suddenly Joey at the front desk greeted me, and looked genuinely happy to see me. That felt like hospitality, and it made me happy. He said, "Mr. Wigley, we appreciate you being a Platinum Member, and being such a nice person. Can I upgrade you to a... More

If you're looking for a well located downtown Minneapolis hotel, this one might just do, but that's also the main selling point for this hotel. I don't really care for the dated & fake Normandy style architecture. Americans may find this cute, but it has nothing to do with real Normandy architecture as it's mostly fake. The inside looks and... More

Stayed here on points while in town for a concert. Lots of parking behind the hotel (some covered spots, which I utilized because some hail started coming down just as I pulled in), walk in to lobby was very nice, this place is well taken care of. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious,... More

Just because the outside looks a bit dated, the inside is very updated, clean and comfortable. My bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in for a long while. We were in town for a baseball game and could have walked to the stadium but since it was rather warm we took the free shuttle... More

We wanted to stay close to Target Field for a TWINS game. We could have taken the free shuttle, but chose to walk instead. It was a nice walk, we felt very safe. Was very impressed with the room. We would highly recommend staying at this hotel. Oh, and the complimentary chocolate chip cookies in the evening were out of... More

I had not stayed at this property for years and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they kept the lovely old décor but did a thorough update in the rooms. I particularly loved the pool area which features a "real pool" with a depth of 8 feet, a whirl pool (both sparkling clean and meticulously maintained) and comfy tables... More

We are frequent visitors to Minneapolis and have stayed at many downtown hotels. We just returned from a night at the Normandy Inn and were pleasantly surprised. I think it has been a few years since it became a Best Western. Based on past experiences it was down on the list for places to stay. A friend of ours told... More
