Very well situated in bustling Minneapolis the Normandy Inn is a big box ticker in terms of quality. Our room was generous sized and immaculately presented. Fridge microwave and LCD TV as well as free WiFi. This is quiet, welcoming hotel that affords the weary traveller rest & relaxation. A few things to note though are that a significant automatic...

You can't get a better value in downtown Mpls. Restaurant is awesome (even while being redone) and having surface parking with unlimited access and no valet is a big value. The location is convenient and the area is normally quiet when there is no construction going on. The Normandy has a quaint, old English feeling to it and its lobby... More

This hotel was perfect for our trip. Getting here in rush hour traffic was a mess but after we were in the parking lot, everything was a short walk away. And the things that we couldn't walk to, we would walk a few short blocks to the light rail and hop on and ride there. The only thing we had... More

This has always been a unique and very appealing motel right from the first day we stayed here. That was over five years ago and we have made this motel a first & only choice when traveling to Minneapolis, MN. They do room renovations and restaurant make overs from time to time. Nothing every looks shabby or worn out. They... More

When I made the reservation, I asked for early check-in and was able to check in a couple hours early. This is not guaranteed, but a request can be made. I was driving seven hours to get to an interview the same evening, and check-in was easy, everyone was friendly and helpful from the desk clerks to the maids. The... More

The staff here are so friendly! From the very start the front desk gal was so sweet. Very helpful in arranging a shuttle in the morning and offering a wake up call. We didn't eat in the restaurant but had a couple of cocktails. Bartender was very nice. We were there at the end of the night but he still... More

For the money it's not too bad for downtown Mpls. Beds are a little old, shower drain backs up from all the ripe away shampoo and conditioner containers plugging it up. I am use to all white linens but they don't have. Huge white stain on nightstand I apparently slept next to for three nights.

The location of this hotel is 2- 3 blocks from the Metro which everyone should use to get around the city.
