I love the fact that the rooms in this hotel are suites. It makes it much easier to work and not feel like you are trapped in a room. I like the decor and the fact that it is not the same hotel in just another city. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the servers are very attentive....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 February 2017 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this little gem in the heart of Minneapolis is. The entire place is in great shape and very clean. The staff at the front desk were both friendly and very helpful. The attached bar/restaurant was a different story. It was also very nice and very clean but neither "bartender" that we dealt with...

Ricelaketraveler, Thank you for the great review. It is great to know that our Front Desk staff is taking care of our guests and making their stay pleasant. I am very sorry to hear about your experience at the restaurant. That is not the norm for the bartenders. I would like to look further into this matter so that I...

This hotel was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the staff was awesome! The only thing I would change was more breakfast items offered and the drinks at the bar were very overpriced. But the bed was amazing! I would highly recommend this hotel!

The modern rustic hotel is relaxing and pleasant experience. The restaurant has spectacular meals that seem home cooked. The lounge crafted the best old fashioned I have had in a long time. Late evening they put out homemade cookies and cold milk. I then retired to a modern clean and delightful room with a very good bed. Rise in morning...

The staff were accommodating and friendly, but didn't offer me much as far as extras go. I'm starting to wonder what if any benefit my diamond status, 2nd from the top of all levels, and they can't even offer me a free bottle of water?! I think I get one of those, staying at a lower quality establishment, and they...

We travel frequently and I have experienced a range of hotels. The Normandy Inn is among the best values in the US that we have had. The staff was more than true to the Midwest tradition of friendliness and the room cleaning staff were excellent. The hotel is centrally located, we did not need a car while visiting for five...

My wife, son and I chose this hotel because of its location. Our suite was well-appointed, quiet, with comfortable beds, a first class shower room, and a pleasant sitting area. Parking is convenient in their lot, and the hotel is only 3 blocks away from Government Plaza LRT Station. It's in a good location, close to restaurants like Hell's Kitchen,...

We've stayed exclusively at this hotel for the last 4 years while our kid was in college at the Univ of Mn. Why? Because they gave us a univ of Mn rate and they always treated us right!!! We looked forward to seeing Joey every late night we drove up from Iowa for the Gopher football games as my daughter...

Staff very helpful, courteous. I have stayed many times at this hotel and the restaurant service is always slow, please staff appropriately. Food great but service slow. Bring back the bar pizza! English breakfast tea is great.

Great place to stay very friendly staff. Rooms were nice and clean. For the amount of money you pay for the room its a great place to stay. They also offer free hotel shuttle to certain places and also close to a rail train to take to just about anywhere.
