“A little surprising”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Considering the reviews I had seen on TA, I thought this would be a great experience. I unfortunately was quoted a price over the phone that didnt match what I was charged.

The rooms were big, and there was even a hot plate for people who are staying for a while.

If you can afford over 100 a night for a place that smelled like dog food, this is your place.

It is disappointing to read your comments regarding you stay with us. We are always 100% honest and forthright when discussing rates with our guests and we are deeply sorry if you were quoted a different rate over the phone. This is unacceptable and I encourage you to come back and stay with us again to prove that this is not standard. Please ask for the manager, and I would be more than happy to personally assist you. Thank you for the review.

I stayed here for a few weeks during a business trip, and it was one of the best experiences I've had with this type of hotel. Rooms were very comfortable, updated and clean. One week I had a small suite, and another week I had a larger 2-room suite. Both had a two beds and a kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, small cooktop and microwave. Both were fine for a single business traveler (plenty of plugs for charging phone/laptop/ipad) but the 2-room suite had a sitting area with couch/chairs and larger kitchen with bar stools around an eating counter. That would be the better choice for a family traveling with kids.

Downstairs there's a small gym adjoining a self-service laundry area and indoor pool. I'd love to have seen better working equipment in the gym, but everything was very clean and the treadmills were fine.

Breakfast in the morning is generous (waffle maker, sweets, oatmeal, fruit, plenty of cereal and beverage choices) and the seating area is nice. There is snack-like food (nachos, baked potato, etc.) on the buffet at dinner time. Which was not as good, but it's meant to be a quick snack and not a full meal.

Staff was wonderful, and very helpful with directions and arranging shuttles. The hotel shares a shuttle services with another nearby hotel. It runs to the airport, to local shopping (including Mall of America) and to some local offices. The drivers were on time and very friendly.

My son attends school at U of MN and we always stay here when we come to visit. They have everything we require: we get a one bedroom suite (with a separate door on the bedroom to separate the sleeping area from the living area), refridgerator, microwave, two tv's, free internet, nice free breakfast, hot tub & pool, great location.
The best part is that the staff is always super friendly and understands what excellent customer service means plus the weekend rate is very reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel.

We needed a "Spring Break" getaway that would meet a long list of "must haves": easy access, near shopping centers, workout room, full breakfast, suite accommodations and cooking facilities. The Staybridge Suites met all those ... and then some. The rooms have been recently renovated and were spotlessly clean. The front desk staff was very efficient. The breakfast and "light evening meal" definitely met our needs ... so much so that we rarely used the suite kitchen. The shuttle service to the Mall of America was perfect. The free laundry facilities were helpful. The "areas of improvement" are fairly minor: there is only one working treadmill so remove the antiquated so people don't get frustrated, add a microwave to the dining area as frequently the food is not hot and have more food prepared for the initial "rush" of diners as often people were standing around waiting for the main entree to be restocked.

Room Tip: We requested a "south facing" room and they were able to deliver a "step up" wit...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with two double beds and found it small but nice. The bedroom itself was very useful and I always like more then one tv. We used the kitchen and enjoyed it (Dear housekeeping, sorry we didn't do our dishes. We ran out of time.) Kids LOVED the pool and the breakfast was ok. The hotel was clean and up to date and was easy to get to. Not far from much and a friendly staff. Would have been nice to have some vending on the floors as I didn't feel like descending 6 flights for Cheetos. Also, side note, Minnesota is a blue law State (weird booze regulations). Thanks for the nice stay and we will be returning.

Booked this hotel for a slumber party overnight. Had to find a property that could accommodate us (needed 2 separate rooms - 1 for the moms/1 for the girls - the girls were going to use the living room pull out and we would use a separate bedroom, a swimming pool, free breakfast, and 2 televisions). This property had it all! Not only that, but when I booked it and used my rewards number, they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom for free!

This place was PHENOMINAL ... full size kitchen (fridge, microwave, stove top) granite counters, dining area, living room, 3 flat screen TVs, DVD player ... I could go on and on. Oh, and the beds & pillows were great ... they even had options of pillows for you to select!!

In the lobby there is a pantry area, and breakfast was not the normal complimentary either, it even had little omlettes and sausage. M-Thurs guests even get a small complimentary dinner. There are laundry facilities, a warm and inviting lobby area, great pool & whirlpool area.

There is a full restaurant at the adjacent property next door and the hotel offers shuttles to the airport and Mall of America.

I'd highly recommend this property for executives, longer stays, families, romantic get-aways, girls weekends, really anyone. The property was quiet and comfortable all around.

Room Tip: If you don't already have one, book a Staybridge Rewards # before making a reservation ... like...

We flew up from Chicago for a quick weekend. The hotel is close to the Mall of America (MOA) but not right on top of the mall. The hotel is clean and well run. We had a one bedroom suite room with two double beds in the bedroom and a pull out bed in the separate sitting area. This worked well with our two girls ages 12 and 9. There is a full kitchen with enough to cook a meal. The hotel has a small but nice pool. The included breakfast at the hotel was very good and the staff could not have been more friendly. Not much else right around the hotel but some restaurants and near some strip malls with stores. We rented a car which allowed us to easily get around. My girls did love the MOA and all the shopping and there is not tax on clothes at the MOA!
