Reviewed August 18, 2013

Overall the place clean and uses quality linens. The staff are exceptionally friendly and energetic. They go out of their way to make your stay perfect.The restaurant is priced a bit high, but the food is good. (Do not trust if you are GF though. They do not worry about cross contamination.) Service there is more relaxed, so ask for the bill as soon as you get your food. If you are attending a business meeting there, bring a jacket. The conference rooms and lobby bathroom are absolutely frigid. Oh, and wifi is NOT included in the price of the room. That's another $13 for each 24-hour period. They do have a small shop in the lobby if you need a snack, drink, or toiletries. Items are priced high, but that was expected. And if you have a problem with tiny bugs biting you while you sleep, avoid room 3031. Sure, they offered to correct the issue, but why did the bed have bugs in it in the first place? Anyway, if we omit the bugs and the glutening, I truly was impressed with this hotel. Great people, quality linens & soaps, beautiful relaxing courtyard, and a shuttle to the mall and airport. I will stay there again, but will find meals where GF is taken more seriously.

Room Tip: Check the sheets for little critters waiting to snack while you dream.

Thank you for your feedback! I am very happy to hear that the wonderful staff here at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott took great care of you while you were staying with us.
We have utilized this review in our culinary meeting this morning and will make sure that everyone on staff understands the seriousness of food allergies/intolerances and handling such foods.
Based on the comment in your review about room 3031 and the pest concerns, I have had the room inspected by our pest control company and we are happy to report the room is pest free. We take any situation such as this very seriously and have any room or area thought to be an issue inspected immediately.
We look forward to your next stay at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott. And we expect that you will have an extraordinary experience!

Stayed here during a recent conference and completely enjoyed this hotel. Our room was excellent, fresh and inviting. The staff were very accommodating. The on-site bar and restaurant were good. Shuttle service to the Mall of America ran regularly making it very convenient to go several times (which I needed to take it all in... The place is vast). The light rail to downtown Minneapolis was just around the corner, so we enjoyed a few treks to see the city and enjoy the restaurants. Good choice!

The location of this hotel is its greatest selling point - being less then 5 minutes to the airport, and walking distance (less the a couple blocks) to the Mall of America and Ikea.

The hotel is well maintained however the layout could have you going for a heck of a walk if you take a wrong turn. All the rooms are located in a ring around the center pavilion and so if you go the wrong way you could effectively be walking almost all the way around the hotel.

Pool and hot tub were very nice with extended "adults only" pool hours until 1 a.m. The pool is sealed off by itself and having stayed three rooms away from the windows that actually look down experienced no noise.

As a matter of fact there was no noise at all from the outside which is an accomplishment considering its proximity to the airport and all of its traffic.

The beds are either memory foam or have memory foam toppers. Sleep quality was out of the park.

Onsite dining options and the typical Marriott mini store available 24 hours a day.

Room requests were honored without questions and definitely felt like I was treated like a platinum guest at this hotel.

Would recommend and stay again.

Let's get the only "bad" out of the way early. This place probably could use a face-lift.

And while we're at it, I really enjoyed the mid-summer "high of 59 with mist" weather, but that's not Marriott's fault.

Everything else is good to great. It's conveniently located across the street from MOA, obviously close to the airport. And while the hotel seems a slight bit tired, the staff more than makes up for this. They have some extremely friendly folks in this part of the country. The room was solid Marriott, and I mean that in a good way. Didn't have time to try the restaurant, but with a massive virtual food court within walking distance (and they will happily drive you there) you won't leave this area unsatisfied.

This is a good, solid property. Friendly staff, good location, clean room. What more could you want?

Not what I expected from a Marriott hotel. Hallways are long and hard to navigate. I was traveling with my husband and kids and we ALL got lost at different times in this hotel. Not all elevators go to all floors....if you take a certain elevator to the first floor you have to walk up 5 stairs and through a door to actually get to the first floor. Laundry facilities were poor...One washer and one dryer on one side of the building and one washer and one dryer on the opposite side of the building. Rooms were small and bathroom was even smaller. Pool and fitness center were nice. Great location if you are going to Mall of America....shuttle runs every half hour. Also, they have a free shuttle to the airport. If you are going to a Twins game you can take the train from the mall....it's a 20-25 minute ride.

Room Tip: 4th floor has the Concierge. Very nice if you have access.

Came to visit our daughter and her husband in Minneapolis and stayed at this Marriott with a Marriott free night as I had a dental conference at the same hotel. The hotel itself was a little worn although the upgraded suite was very nice. Access to the concierge lounge was a big plus as there were drinks and beverages available and the breakfast the next morning was great. A big king bed was back in a small alcove. The bed itself was yummy. If you stay here try and coerce them into giving you a concierge level suite, otherwise it would be typical Marriott fare.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade

After a little issue checking in, connecting rooms, we settled in for a nice stay. Clean and comfortable rooms. The rooms are a little small but nice. The bathrooms are a little dated. The shuttle service to the mall is efficient and timely. Parking lot is well lit and plenty of spaces. There is a little construction around the hotel that makes navigation a little confusing.

Room Tip: Not fronting the north(interstate)
