Hubby and I stayed here here two nights. This is a perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the downtown area. Very reasonably priced and close to the skywalk. The experience here was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms facing the swimming pool.

I just stayed 4 nights at this hotel as I was in Minneapolis for a conference. Don't be fooled by the outside look which is very 70s. The rooms inside are modern, comfortable and tastefully furnished. The internet speed is very good. The hotel as an onsite restaurant and I highly recommend the meatloaf they offer. The convention center as well as Nicolette Mall is in walking distance (about 10 minutes). This hotel is probably the best value in town. My colleague stayed at the Holiday Inn Express close by which is not as nice, has to restaurant and was more expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the pool as it can be very noisy depending on the type of people in the pool.

Thank you for staying at Best Western Plus The Normandy Inn & Suites on your latest visit to beautiful downtown Minneapolis. Your comments you posted on Tripadvisor are valuable to future travelers searching for great properties at reasonable rates. We work hard to ensure the guest is always getting the best product at The Normandy. Recently we have refurbished the original brick at the front of the building and also have many new exciting plans for the future that I'm sure you will enjoy! As one of my personal favorites I am glad you got a chance to try the veal and spinach meatloaf as it is one of many classic dishes that are perfected by The Normandy Kitchen Cafe & Bar. Thank you again for choosing The Normandy Inn & Suites and we hope to see you again soon!

This hotel is an old favorite of many travelers over the years. I stayed in it for the first time about 40 years ago. It has expanded a bit over time and has been updated, but it remains a nice-sized hotel of 4 floors. The location is great for walking around downtown Minneapolis.

The price was more reasonable than other downtown hotels, and their parking rate was definitely more reasonable than the others. Rooms are large and very clean, and the staff is friendly. Maybe the best part was the arrival in the lobby of fresh-baked cookies every night at 10:00. There is a nice restaurant on the premises--The Normandy Kitchen. They serve blueberry pancakes, which were always the best in town. They're still made from the original recipe.

We just stayed here for four nights, and we found it very pleasant and reasonably priced. Its location is very good. Very close to the Skywalk. Although we didn't get free restaurant, we ate breakfast at the hotel's restaurant, which was also a pleasant experience.
