We came up to visit family and friends in Minnesota and we stayed at this hotel for two weeks. We were only going to stay a little over one week and then move to another hotel in a different part of the city. We liked this hotel so much that we cancelled our other hotel reservations and stayed here the entire time. We thought the staff was so professional and so nice. We loved the wonderful breakfast each morning. We also had some family come over and we ordered pizza to be delivered. We had a great family time in the breakfast room that night. We loved being close to Costco to get gas or whatever we needed. We were able to get to Forest Lake to visit an aunt within 30 minutes. It seemed wherever we wanted to go we could get there quickly from here. We loved the finishes in the room. I thought the artwork was beautiful and i liked the granite look in the bathrooms. We used the laundry service and that worked great. The pool was great to use. I liked that it was inside and I could look outside and see the flowers and trees in the early morning. Also they offered a managers evening meal on Monday through Thursday. We thought that was a nice touch even though we did not go there every night. We went out to meet friends at restaurants or their homes. I personally loved the sitting area in front of the fireplace. It felt so cozy and I liked that I could sit away from the room and have a cup of coffee. Also they had a tv you could watch there. Be sure to notice the beautiful copper tile squares located above the fireplace. I thought that was a beautiful touch and rarely seen in a hotel like this. Truly more upscale. I loved it all. If we come back to Minnesota we will stay only at this place. It felt like home to us.
