“Bad idea to book with this hotel”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

We booked a block of 4 rooms including a suite, which we intended to use as a community room for all the families in our little reunion. The "king suite" is nothing more than the same sized room as a double, only it has one bed and a little half wall to separate it from the so called living area. That brings me to the living area...a love seat/ hide a bed with a small desk. No table and chairs. There was a dorm fridge which buzzed all night long and a microwave. Don't bother asking or paying for a kind suite at this hotel, because it is a farce. The swimming pool is a tiny area with such terrible acoustics that when children are playing, the noise is deafening.

Room Tip: get a regular room, and stress non smoking

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize you had a negative experience regarding the room size and acoustic of the pool. I will address this to my upper management for the future renovation. Once again thank you for the opportunity to serve you!

stayed here one night, it's a nice hotel...nothing fancy, but certainly adequate room size and decent amenities (pool and exercise room). Overall it's a good value if you can get a room for the $80-$90 price range.

As you may have read in previuos reviews, I spend in excess of 100 nights a year in hotels. This particular property is one I actually look forward to staying at. The staff is comparable to that found at top of the line 5 star hotels, and the manager is simply the best I have ever met. Located directly across the street from the Mall of America, 2 blocks from the Light Rail servicing the Airport and downtown, an 2 minutes from the airport, this property is idealy suited for business or for shopping.
A quick note, If you visiting for pleasure, make use of the light Rail. You'll be in downtown Minneapolis in 15 minutes, in the heart of the business and shopping district, for a $2.25 fair. The servise also stops at both airport terminals, as well as the downtown sports arena's. svae you car rental money, there simply is no need for one.

This hotel is very convenient to anyone looking to go back and forth to the Mall of America. It's right across the street. If it's winter time in Minnesota, I would NOT plan to walk it though. The distance on foot is somewhere over a quarter mile (guestimate) and you'd likely freeze before getting there in the knee deep snows of Minnesota. Take the hotel shuttle. Room was nice and clean and had a nice flat screen tv mounted on the wall for viewing from the bed or the pullout couch. My room also had a microwave and a medium sized refrigerator. Very convenient for late night warming up of leftovers. The staff is extremely polite and hospitable. They also have a free breakfast for hotel guests that included hot waffles! I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a corner room that has a microwave and refrigerator.

This is a great hotel right next to the Mall of America and the Minneapolis-St Paul International airport. The Mall of America is about 1/4 to 1/2 mile away, so you can walk to it. Even though the hotel is right next to the airport, when I was inside the hotel I didn't hear any planes. They must have excellent soundproofing. The hotel has free shuttle service to and from the airport. Also, they have a park and fly option. If you stay at the hotel one night, you can leave your car parked there for 7 days.

The hotel is in very good condition, and it looks very nice and clean. The water temperature in the shower was constant -- no fluctuations to hot or cold. I stayed in a room with two queen beds, and the beds were quite comfortable (not too soft or too firm).

They have a business center with two computers and two laser printers, and it is in its own room which is accessed using your room key. I like this, because it isn't out in the open in the lobby, like some other hotels. They did not charge to print.

The hotel has free wireless internet. I was even able to use it after I checked out. I went to the mall for a couple of hours, then I remembered I needed to check something online, so I went back to the hotel, sat in the breakfast area, and was still able to use the free wireless internet.

Overall, this is a very good hotel, the staff were very friendly, and I would stay here again.

We stayed here to shop at MOA. Yes, it is VERY close to the airport, but we just kept the fan on and slept like babies. Two second shuttle ride whenever we wanted back and forth to mall AND they took us to the seminar we had to attend at another hotel! They will take you to any local shop or restaurant 24hrs a day. And so friendly! The van drivers were a hoot! The staff was very nice and the room was very clean. Breakfast was hot and lots of choices which we usually expect at residence inn but not ff. Just the most perfect hotel for the money! Will definately stay there again
