What I like best about the Normandy Inn in Minneapolis is its downtown location, its ambient atmosphere, the spacious rooms, the excellent food in the restaurant, the welcoming and helpful attitude of the receptionists, calm and quiet nights and restful sleep.

Highlights of this hotel: water pitcher and real glasses, with filtered water and a great ice machine available on the floor; within easy walking distance of the convention center and several good restaurants; great lounging areas and a wide hall on the main floor. Well-appointed rooms. Yes,...

The place is a few blocks away from the core of downtown hotels and convention center. It is is easily walkable on the street or skyway (once you figure the skyway out...) but to a woman on her own, the surrounding area looks a little dicey after dark. No problems though. The hotel also has a shuttle which will carry...

I recently stayed here for four nights and enjoyed most aspects of the hotel: the service was friendly and efficient, especially at check-in; the hotel and room were both clean and updated; my room was very comfortable, and the shower was great. The value was also quite good. My issue was with noise. My hotel room was connected to the...

Asteriskadonis, I am glad to hear your stay was excellent with the exception of noise from a connecting room. I wish we could have been able to move you to a room with out a connecting door.

We traveled here for business and the hotel was great. They have a shuttle that will take you from the hotel to most places downtown including regular trips to the convention center. Friendly staff. Restaurant food not so great but the staff was.

Stayed here for a conference. The convention center is 5 blocks away walking with no above ground walk ways. Walk took about 15 minutes. I took an UBER to the convention center, and it cost $12.50. There is a free shuttle service to the convention center and the lady driver is very nice. Ride was bout 6 or 7 minutes....
