We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at this very nice facility. It is conveniently located downtown, with abundant FREE parking. There is a clean on-side laundry for guests. The staff is very, very helpful. Rooms are well appointed with very comfy beds and fluffy towels. And yes, they really DO serve fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and milk every night at... More

This hotel is three blocks from the light rail transit and within walking distance of most of the downtown shops and restaurants. Front desk personnel were very polite and helpful. Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a separate room for the toilet and shower. I just wish hotels would install more outlets (conveniently accessible!)... More

The Normandy Hotel was the best we could have ever asked for! We needed a handicap room, it was perfect! The floor was clean, the comforter did not smell of cigarette smoke, the bed was a perfect mattress for the handicap person's broken hip. It was adjoining to our medical driver so she could help if I needed help. We... More

It was clean, plenty of staff. Nice looking rooms. No continental breakfast which is okay, but cereal was $4.50 a bowl, not okay in my book. The location was nice and central. The pool area looked nice, but somewhat small. With 5 people, the pool itself seemed a bit crowded, but you only have so much space in the city.... More

Was in Minneapolis to see Les Mis at the Orpheum. I picked this hotel because it had inexpensive parking ($7.00 per night with in-and-out privileges) and was located within walking distance of the theater. The hotel actually has a shuttle, I learned, but the weather was great and I chose to walk. I could also walk to the Mill Museum... More

We had a 2 room suite that was very nice with a couch that turned into a bed. There was a microwave, fridge, & dishwasher. Although non of it was used by us it was a really nice amenity.

I have been to the BW Normandy so many times I've lost count. I've never written a review before because I figured I'd keep it a secret, lol. BUT, after my week long stay last week, and seeing some other "less than friendly posts" from the "Party Light" ladies; I had to respond. This hotel is by far a "Hidden... More

Stayed at the Normandy Inn with my 2 sons for a baseball weekend. The hotel was perfect, the rooms are large, the pool is indoors, and they provide a shuttle service for around town. Excellent hotel for anyone doing anything in downtown Minneapolis.
