I think I stayed at this sprawling hotel 25 years ago and it's location near the airport and Mall of America may be the best reasons to stay there. All that's seems changed in all these years is the addition of a new check-in area and the rooms upgraded (same as all Marriott full service)
Pluses: 1. Excellent staff, front desk to restaurant. 2. location. 3. Bed was very comfy. 4. had a prefectly cooked Burger the one night I ate there.
Negatives: 1. Sprawling, signage is good but you still keep wondering if you're going in the right direction. 2. Restaurants - one by the front desk that looks a lot like a Courtyard, another buried beyond the meeting rooms. Buried and dark, just not beckoning. 3. Please plow the parking lot when you get snow. 4. Hallways, same old skinny ones from the '80s. 5. Concierge room. Again buried and I had to direct several people several times to find it. Food not up to par with other Marriotts, especially at night. 6. Restaurant food options were very limited. Past the 1st night I trekked over to the mall where there are plenty of selections.
MArriott should buy this place out and find a new owner that can compete with the many airport/mall area options
