“DO NOT BOOK A ROOM HERE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

This place is dirty run down ghetto hotel. The noise is insane. Its like staying in the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras. The management and customer service refuse to listen to any complaints.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We stayed at the Park Plaza for 3 nights in March on a spring break trip. I bid and received a great price ($50/night) through Priceline. I thought it was a good hotel for that price. Location was close to the airport/MOA. Room was clean. There was free parking, free wifi, and a pool. Downside was no free breakfast, so you would have to add that to the price if you are a breakfast eater and wanted to compare hotels -- it could get pricey if you had to purchase breakfast for a larger family. We brought food/snacks with us, so it was not an issue. Definitely not a newer hotel, but the rooms and common areas were fine. I felt completely safe and my room was very quiet compared to many I've stayed in.

I was down for a couple of days in Minneapolis and was checked into the Park Plaza. Not the Ritz but it had all the essentials. A comfortable bed, free breakfast, good bar, and a comfortable bed.
The staff is very friendly and work hard to ensure that you have a good stay.

Came here to visit with family and go shopping at the Mall of America. Hotel is a great location. Within 20 minutes of Dave and Busters. About 5 minutes from the MOA. There is a bar by the lobby with a fireplace where you can lounge around and order wine. The room service is excellent. The pizza was impressive.

As I am here now I figured I would make a review...

Our room is extremely small!!! no vanity for my makeup and hair stuff... I can hear the people next too me.. No microwave nor mini fridge... It doesn't look anything like the pictures I seen on the website, which was the main reason, I choose this hotel..... The bathroom tile is sticking out which I tripped on in the shower.. the room is very outdated along with the hallways..

The Bed is extremely comfy and the room was clean. so I cant complain that much..... the only place that delivered was American Pie which was very good..

Room Tip: third floor is extremely noisy...

Booked rooms for park and fly when we arrived they informed us our rooms were not park and fly, and they had none. The people at the desk were some what rude and no help. Will not refer anyone to use this hotel.

Made reservations for two park & fly rooms. Called again a week prior to our trip and was assured of the reservations. When we arrived at the hotel they did not have the park & fly reservations, only every excuse you can imagine and others that were way beyond my imagination! . I would never trust them again. Had to scramble to find other arrangements 7 hours before we were to leave to catch our flight.
