We stayed a couple nights in this property during a bitter cold week after an exceptionally stressful week. Fortunately we checked into this Westin and we started to almost immediately relax. The bellman immediately helped us with our bags and the check-in desk was welcoming.
We learned that the hotel is about five years old so the room was quite modern and comfortable. The bathroom had an oversized walk-in shower and a separate tub. The bed was a classic Heavenly bed and we slept well. The enormous windows allowed plenty of light into the room during the day.
The heated indoor pool and exercise facilities were fantastic - stocked appropriately with dry towels, cold towels, water, fruit and headphones.
The hotel itself has no restaurant but across the lobby from the check-in desk is the restaurant - McCormick & Schmick’s. Primarily an upscale seafood and steakhouse, M&S does have other options for food and apparently had a brunch menu. But one of the great features of this property is that it has a climate-controlled underground tunnel to the Galleria - an enclosed series of high-end stores across the street. Galleria has some additional food options as well and no need to brave the weather elements.
Additionally in terms of location, the hotel is barely 15 min from the airport, barely 10 min from the Mall of America, maybe 10 min to the southwest Minneapolis suburbs and maybe about 15 min to downtown Minneapolis.
Overall, the service was excellent and the people really seemed to care about our experience. I would highly recommend this gem of a hotel.
