I recently took a tour of several American citites: Minneapolis, Minnesota, Denver, Colorado, Salt Lake City, Utah and lastly San Francisco, California with my son, Jeff.
From a standpoint of meeting our expectations the first and last did that given I required a separate room for my son with a pull-out couch for bedding. All the hotels were able to do this in some form as they promised prior to arrival, although the Burnsley in Denver and The Crystal Inn in Salt Lake City had to make alterations to accomodate us once we arrived much to our chagrin.
Anyway, based on a composite picture alone, the best hotel of our trip was the Normandy Inn in Minneapolis; the room was like an apartment unto itself with the bedroom where I stayed in far removed from my son's pull-out couch in the living room. Further, for hotel food and value, the first thing that entered our minds when we arrived and dined at their restuaraunt was how "un-hotel like" the food was. One could never get this kind of fare on the East Coast for this type of money and further the bartendress and bartender - Rachel and Tom, respectively - were so accomodating and engaging that we could not pull ourselves away from their company long enough to do all the sight-seeing in the brief time we had there.
Thank you as well to owners/managers Mike and - I belive her name was Bonnie - for being so accessible and hospitable in such a quaint inn in the middle of a major metropolitan city.
