I have an annual conference in Minneapolis. I have stayed at the Hilton before, but it's usually very pricey. This year I wanted to save some money and also see what was available comparable to the Hilton's price. The Hilton has a decent price, and their conference rate was better than other highrise hotels downtown. But the Best Western Normandy Inn is a much, much better choice for the price. The only drawback is that you don't get the views like those at the Hilton, but the view is not worth an extra $50 a night.
