ok, this is undoubtedly the ugliest exterior i have ever seen. what were they thinking? the inside is not nearly so bad - the inside common areas are better and the rooms are pretty comfortable. the restaurant and bar are serviceable. pool pretty good. no vending machines on any floor( you have to by things from the desk ). good...

I've stayed at this hotel twice. Once in July 2015 and again in July 2016. If I go back to Minneapolis in 2017 I'm sure I'll use it again for the following reasons: (1) Conveniently located. I was able to walk to most of the things I wanted to do. It's in the downtown area. (2) On both visits the... More

Stayed here in December 2009. Firstly the hotel staff were very understanding at my late arrival. I missed my flight the night before and telephoned the hotel as soon as I landed. As I was staying in Best Western O'Hare and had to pay extra for this room, I wasn't charged for the night I missed. The next day when... More

We are happy to get your feedback after all of these years since your last stay. Many things are still true as we still have a very accommodating front desk staff, freshly baked cookies and milk served every night at 10pm and we are now located only 5 blocks from the new US Bank football stadium! We hope you get... More

First of all, beware of the construction going on. The whole block where the main entrance is located is closed to traffic and parking, even for check in. That alone was a major hassle. The rooms are updated and comfy. Best pillows I've had. The restaurant has very good breakfast food, if not a bit pricy. The AC window unit... More

We needed easy access to the stadium downtown and the price was right. The room was neat and clean, parking was included in the rate, the swimming was spacious and inviting. The restaurant staff was a bit odd but I wouldn't hold that against the hotel in terms of a rating. We would stay again!

Very nice hotel. If you are traveling with kids, book a room that opens onto the pool area, which is spotless. The whole property is very clean and lovingly maintained. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. Beds are comfortable. There WAS some construction noise on the dates we stayed but it was city street construction and couldn't be helped. Warm... More

The third annual visit to the Normandy Best Western Plus for me. Normally a two night stay before flying back home. I like the location, it's a 'strange' little hotel, based amongst the skyscrapers of Minneapolis. This makes it a perfect place to stay in the downtown region with 30 minute links to the airport via the tram. The rooms... More

I'm usually reluctant to stay in Best Western hotels without a direct referral from someone I know and trust. However, for a work trip, this hotel was the closest to our meeting facility, and the reviews were good. The room was clean, large, and well maintained. You are downtown, within walking distance of Target Field and US Bank stadium. The... More

Spent a week at this hotel with a large group of colleagues. Large groups are traditionally difficult to handle, from check-in to check-out, with the different small and big issues arising from sheer number of people all with different preferences, requests, prob;ems etc. However this hotel and its wonderful staff took it all in stride and handled it wonderfully.

My companion and I had tickets for an event at the State Theater. There must have been a convention in town because prices for rooms were much higher than previous stays in downtown Minneapolis. Thankfully, the Best Western still had some rooms left under $200/night. I also liked that parking was reasonably priced and not valet parking. We have a... More
