I couldn't be any happier with my stay at the Normandy Inn. I stayed for a weekend and was impressed with the room, the service, and the overall quality of the hotel. It was in a prime location in downtown Minneapolis and parking was very easy and only $8 per day. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to... More

special rates for State BBall trip. Awesome! We enjoyed our stay and were happy to be able to have our whole family stay on the same floor. Great hotel with wonderful staff. The hot tub was out of commission one morning. That was disappointing. Other than that, the stay was great.

Nice size rooms, excellent staff, convenient location, shuttle service - we really enjoy staying here when we visit Minneapolis. We often combine business with an event at the Target Center, a nice dinner downtown and shopping, all within walking distance.

I've stayed at the Normandy several times, usually when attending the high school state tournaments. I like the proximity to a lot of the events going on in the Twin Cities. Great staff, great service! Easy access to the main roads in and out of Minneapolis.

We enjoyed this hotel - feels very "small town" and cozy and surprising property in downtown. The hotel is historic and has several buildings. We were put in a room in the back building near parking lot. No outside noise - but the hotel attracts a lot of younger (party) people. Even if they were not noisy - the doors... More

Were going out for a friends Bday party and decided to make a date night and stay downtown. Choose Normandy Inn for its price, room type (oversized rooms and two room suites - very reasonably priced) and amenities (free wi-fi, Ipod docking station, cheapest on-site parking downtown). The staff was efficient and very helpful. Check in/out was fast and easy.... More
