As gold members we had quite a few points to use up and chose this hotel for our trip to Minneapolis, primarily because of the pool area. Ron, at the front desk, was AMAZING in working wiht me to upgrade our room type so we were able to stay in a suite, with points and cash. With a fridge and micro in the room, two queen beds and a pull out sofa, it was perfect for our party of 5! I had misunderstood on the phone and thought we would be looking directly out onto the pool area, but upon arrival our room was off behind the pool. However, I'm not sure there are any suites that look over the pool, so it was a trade off we didn't mind. The pool did not disappoint; our kids and their cousins, who were also staying there, had a blast on the water slide and play area. The room was clean, beds were incredibly comfortable, loved the Bath & Body toiletries, and all in all it was a wonderful stay! Only downsides: The bathroom was micro mini, with almost no counter space. Not a big deal, but somewhat inconvenient when trying to get ready and nowhere to set cosmetic bags. Also, ifor being a family friendly hotel, it would have been nice to have a free breakfast included, as we're accustomed to at most hotels these days. There were vouchers for 1 child per paid adult in the room to eatfree in their restaurant, but for some reason we weren't given any at check in and I had to go ask for them while we were eating dinner. Prices were pretty high in the restaurant. I don't know if we would have been given more vouchers for the next morning's breakfast if we'd asked but we chose to head to Ikea for a reasonable breakfast instead! Speaking of which, the hotel is about a 20 minute drive from Mall of America.
