I was surprised to see the medicore reviews for this hotel. We checked in around 7:00, and it had so-so appeal on the exterior. It is right off I-35 and I-494, but is tucked in an almost residential area. When I pulled up, I was thinking I was in for a not so nice hotel. WRONG! We walked in and it was beautiful in the lobby/atrium. Spacious, nice fountain, glass elevators, and a very South Florida-feel to it. We went to our room, and were even more impressed. Unlike a typical hotel room, this had french doors to each room with glass. Opening it up, these were nice 2-room suites. Sinks in both rooms, plus a bathroom, and flat panel TVs in both rooms. This was great to put the kids in one room and us in the other. The only complaints I have is that the elevators were slow, and the bathroom was a little small. There is a nightly manager's reception, which unfortunately, we missed most of due to later check-in. FREE ALCOHOL and snacks for 2 hours! I literally saw a table of 4 adults at a table with 20 drinks. No doubt some use this reception to avoid the $50 bar tab at a local establishment. Pool area was very nice and spacious...again very South Florida. The hot tub was smaller, and warm, not hot. There is a suana too. In the morning, there is a "cooked to order" breakfast, which is code for a buffet and a guy making omlets. The omlets tasted good, and the breakfast was good. We will definitely stay at this hotel again on our next trip to the Twin Cities. I think anything under $150 is a good deal for this hotel, especially when you factor in free drinks/snacks in the evening, and a free breakfast in the morning.
