“Wonderful Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

From the moment you enter the doors of this hotel you feel the quality of workmanship and care they take to preserve it's heritage. A spacious hallway with gleaming slate floors leads the the front desk area. The photos framed over the front desk area chronicle the rich history of the establishment.
We were delighted with the suite. It was roomy, updated and very clean with an extremely comfortable bed. Very much liked having the sink separated from the bathroom. The shower was a treat. I actually measured it as we hope to renovate one to that exact size.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The concierge (who hails from Iceland) kindly drove us to the concert we were attending and gave us a tour on the way. We were made to feel right at home. Our quick check-in and check-out were done by Jason and Joe who were very professional and courteous. We have visited the Normandy before and plan to visit as often as possible and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful visit. Rosemary S

Room Tip: The south facing suite was bright and sunny.

Thank you for submitting your detailed and wonderfully stated review of The Best Western Plus Normandy Inn & Suites! Your comments were so spot on that I could visualize walking through our beautiful lobby and enjoying our spacious and updated suites. It is especially nice to hear that you received top notch service from Jason and Joe at the front desk and Johann our shuttle driver.

Great kitschy place. Nice clean room. Great price. Comfy mattresses and we slept wonderfully. Plus, we ordered a couple Henry IIX Burgers from room service and it was relaxing. Free parking is good in downtown Mpls. Easy to get in and out!

Thank you for selecting Best Western Plus The Normandy Inn & Suites on your last visit to downtown Minneapolis.

You also mentioned free parking but in actuality The Normandy offers the cheapest downtown parking at a discounted rate of $7.00 for all hotel guests.

This hotel has clearly been recently upgraded. It is very clean and the decor is wonderful! It took a little bit to figure out the lay of the land, but it was fun exploring. Mike and Bonnie are spectacular innkeepers! They obviously care deeply about the hotel and the restaurant. Don't skip the restaurant...not your normal hotel restaurant. I recommend the fish and chips and sliders!

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful time. We arrived a half hour early and were able to get into our room right away. Room was spacious and very clean. The bed was so comfortable I wish I could've taken it home. Loved the ipod, iphone doc next to the bed. Had a couple drinks at the bar and the bartender was very nice and we had get service. Great location to do lots of walking. Easy drive to get there from the interstate.

We stayed here while attending the AMA Supercross on April 13th. Check-in was quick and easy. The front desk staff was very polite. Our room with double beds was clean and spacious. The bathroom sink was separated from the bathroom which is a nice plus. The shower has wonderful with a large showerhead and plenty of hot water. Complimentary in room coffee and bottled water is always nice. Upon arrival we discovered there is a free shuttle that took us to the Metrodome and picked us up. Great perk! I've heard they will even take you to the Nicolette Mall but it is only about a 10 minute walk. Great street of bars and resturants.

We didn't use the pool or eat in the resturant but they both looked nice.

Room Tip: The walls are thick. We were on the third floor and never heard anyone above or below us. Hallways...

Thank you for choosing Best Western Plus The Normandy Inn & Suites on your latest visit to downtown Minneapolis. Your kind comments are very much appreciated. The AMA Supercross event at the Metrodome was a fantastic event and we enjoyed all who stayed with us during that time. On a side note I would like to mention for future travelers that our shuttle service is available from 7am to 10:30pm to events happening at The Minneapolis Convention Center, Guthrie Theater, Orpheum Theater, State Theater, Orchestra Hall, Target Center, Target Field, Metrodome and University of Minnesota campus. Since Nicollet mall is located only 4 blocks away we do not offer this service to the local bars and restaurants. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon!

Hubby and I stayed here here two nights. This is a perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the downtown area. Very reasonably priced and close to the skywalk. The experience here was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms facing the swimming pool.
