We stayed in the Westin Minneapolis during the Christmas holidays and could not have been happier with our choice. We met our son and his wife plus two daughters on the 21st of December and enjoyed a five day celebration of the holidays. Our rooms were adjoining, beds (king) extremely comfortable, bathroom extremely clean and fashionable; great two-headed shower for shower lovers, which we are. Our room had its own temperature controls so we could be warmer during the day and cooler at night. All of the amenities one comes to expect from a Westin were readily available. When our granddaughter peeked under the bed she found a card there that said "yes, we even clean down here!" We thought that was pretty cool! We used their valet service for parking our car and while we thought it a bit expensive we came to appreciate the young men who ran to get our car for us and delivered it already warmed up, temps were close to zero most mornings so the service certainly paid off. We ate most meals out but our last evening together we chose to stay and eat in their fine restaurant. This was Christmas night, they had a greatly reduced staff (two servers) in order for the greater numbers of staff to celebrate Christmas with
their families. Our service was superb, the food was excellent, a feast of different foods that each member thoroughly enjoyed.
I mentioned our location -- a block away from Nicolette Street where a parade is held every weekend from Thanksgiving to Christmas, also connected to Nicolette Mall. A walk away from a wide variety of restaurants and other types of entertainment.
Did we love it? Yes. Do we recommend this wonderful hotel? Absolutely. They even have works-out rooms, a lap pool, and a hot tub! Can't ask for more.
