“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Front desk staff are very helpful. Have shuttle service to various places downtown also to and from Viking games. Try and avoid rooms facing the church on sundays bells start tolling at 7a.m. Elevators by parking are a little scary because of noise they make. There is plenty of parking. The downside of parking is spaces are a bit tight and only have 3 handicap parking spot. Room was nice. Beds are comfortable. Black out window shade definitely a plus. Had cookies and milk at night from 10:00 to 10:20 which was awesome. When me and my family come back to check out new stadium we'll be staying here. It's about 6 block walk to stadium. Mall of america is about at 10 minute drive. I would like to Thank hotel staff for being helpful!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The hotel is fantastic. You can't get a better deal for your money with all of the amenities they offer. Beware though parking there costs $7 and if you aren't looking under the amenities list, you will miss it. The parking fee should be included in the cost of the room and not added as an extra fee. Also if you want breakfast on a Sunday morning, you're better off ordering early or you will be told to wait 45 minutes to eat.

Thank you for selecting Best Western Plus The Normandy Inn & Suites on your latest visit to beautiful downtown Minneapolis! We appreciate your comments and I would like to share with you that we have the most reasonable parking rates of any downtown hotel. We feel it is important to charge for parking separately so the consumer that does not park can still get the best value. Our fantastic Normandy Kitchen Cafe & Bar provides great classic menu items all prepared from scratch with usually little wait time. I can only assume that this was a busy Vikings football sunday were the demand was very high. Overall, thank you for calling us "Only Place to stay downtown" and we hope to see you again soon!

We recently stayed at this hotel while attending an event in Minneapolis. The hotel is in a good location for downtown activities. They have a free shuttle that will run you around, and a parking lot with a 7.00 for 24 hour fee. The hotel itself is very clean. The rooms are beautiful, and the beds are really nice!! I would definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable hotel in downtown Minneapolis.

this hotel has the feel of a classy hotel that I entered as a child. the feel is a bit dated yet nice. pool and a bar. filtered water by the ice machine to fill the carafe in your room. not bad at all. I like the idea of the cookies and milk offered at 10pm each night but i think i shall be asleep before then.

Room Tip: stay on the 4th floor so you are not too close to the street traffic.

Very nervous, never stayed at a Best Western, surprised. Staff was excellent. Convenient and clean. I am picky and I would recommend, great value for the price. The rooms have been redone, carpets clean, linens fresh. Very pleased.

The location of this hotel is very convenient. Close to many restaurants, Macy's, Target field, market stalls. All accessible by walking. They have free night snacks with yummy chocochip cookies and milk at lobby. The room is spacious, the bed is very comfortable. I like the best is their blanket, very soft and silky feeling. Staffs in this hotel are very polite and greeted us whenever they see us. The hotel also provide with purify water machine and ice vending machine, and it is free!
Shuttle services provided. Nice gym room and pool.
