This was my first trip to Minneapolis and I was really impressed. Lots to see and do. The hotel is clean, the bed was fresh and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a free bus right outside that will take you down the "mall". When I heard this hotel led into a mall I thought the traditional shopping plaza but what they actually mean is about an 8 city block area of stores, shops and eating establishments. Although everything was walkable, if you are up for it, it was nice to have the free bus for packages or you could call the hotel shuttle that would take you anywhere in a two mile radius. Lots to see and do, amazingly clean and safe. Don't forget the mall of america. Take the free bus or shuttle to 5th street and for a few bucks you can get on the light rail and go to the airport or mall. Had lots of fun while hubby was at a conference.
