We've never stayed in a Residence Inn before but got a good deal for a 4-day stay. It was amazing! The suites are very large. We had a huge living room, good-sized bedroom and a nice small kitchen. Two big screen plasma TVs (one in living room, one in bedroom). Very nicely decorated and comfortable. Great for even a short stay. Extremely convenient downtown location--close to Macy's, Target, Nicollet Mall and movie theatres. Super friendly staff. About a 30 minute walk down to the river (which is not to be missed) and The Guthrie theater.
