With everything the Westin offers, it's difficult to find a better hotel to stay at in Minneapolis.
I've been staying at the Westin since it opened. Usually I'm in Minnesota for only one or two nights, and I need a place that's centrally located downtown. This Westin offers that, and it comes with the familiarity and excellence that's usually associated with the Westin/W family of hotels. But the two main selling points for me here would have to be the stainless steel indoor pool and the management staff.
It's difficult to find an upper-tier hotel downtown that offers both a state-of-the-art workout facility AND an indoor pool. This Westin offers both. The cold towels and free weights in the gym are also a plus.
The second reason why I always stay here is the staff. The manager, Charles Bushard, has always been accommodating and really goes the extra mile to make sure my stay is pleasant. From his attention to detail with my special requests to room selection, he truly aims to please.
Overall, you can't go wrong with The Westin. You're close to everything downtown, the staff will handle your every need, and when you go to unwind you can relax on their Heavenly Beds. You'll be happy you stayed here.
