“June Business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Hotel was in the center of Minneapolis and was within walking distance of the Convention Center and Target Field.
The lobby smelled old, but the rooms were very nice. They did not smell old or of Lysol.
There was a nice bar attached. We did not eat in the restaurant. My co-workers and I wanted to experience some of what Minn-SP had to offer.

Room Tip: I had a room on the east side of the hotel on the 4th floor. Ask for the 4th floor, hot water takes...

I loved the European feel of this hotel. I also like that the elevators were located in a separate area then our rooms. It made for a very quiet place. Filtered water available by the ice machine was a nice touch. I loved soaking in the hot-tub. Located right in the heart of downtown. A block from entry to the skywalk system, which is very fun. The restaurant has yummy pizza also!

My daughters and I travelled to Minneapolis for the long weekend in September 2013 - a shopping and having fun trip. The service at this Best Western was excellent - all staff were helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay great. The beds were very very comfortable. We had 3 iPhones, 1 iPad and 2 laptop computers (lots of personal connections and some work going on) and we had excellent WiFi happening. We ordered great pizza from the bar and enjoyed a swim in the pool and some time in the hot tub. Good restaurants within walking distance. I also stayed at this Best Western in Oct. of 2012 - it is a 10 min walk to the start of the Twin Cities marathon. I will return to this hotel.

We got an excellent value at this hotel. The staff at the front desk were exception. They were very friendly and helpful. We arrived late (10pm), and since they had suites available, they upgraded us for free (we didn't even ask). Even without the upgrade, we paid a very good price for what this hotel offers. They don't say it on their website, but they do allow pets, which is nice. The rooms were comfortable, modern, and very clean, and the swimming pool area was nice as well. They have a somewhat secure parking lot behind the building (half of it is covered), and charged us $7 per night to park there. They also had bike racks in the covered part of the parking lot.

We stayed here for one night during a motorcycle trip in August of 2013. Central location which required a lot of freeway driving to get there, but that is what it is. Close to the ball park with a free shuttle to get there which was nice. The place has a medieval theme going on with lots of heavy dark furniture. Not my thing but interesting nonetheless. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. No breakfast served and no coffee in the front lobby which I found somewhat annoying. The coffee machines in the room were all but useless with a very short plug. Overall, decent value for the spend but nothing special.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the inner courtyard. It's quieter.

The pool rooms are great fun for a family. When we visited the pool was not used by many others and it is nice to sit outside the room with the free in-room coffee. We found the room itself fine and the lobby nice. The hall to the room was very hot though. The room door was difficult to open from age or perhaps the heat.

My husband and I have traveled extensively. We try to stay at 4 star hotels when in Europe, and have learned that a great hotel makes all the difference; when creating memories. When we booked a room at the Normandy Inn in Minneapolis, little did we know what we were in for. We needed a place that was "dog friendly," and if our dog Jack could speak, he would give this place "paws -up!"

Quite simply, the Normandy Inn is "A WELL KEPT SECRET." We found the entire staff, "Impeccable," the food "extraordinary" and our suite was "spacious and very clean." It's rare to find a place like this anywhere, it just doesn't happen. Although we live in the Lake Minnetonka area in Minnesota, we will definitely be back!
