Inside was nice, exterior needs updates

3 out of 5
Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: Beds were comfortable.
Cons: The exterior needs updating, parking needs to be expanded. We had to wait until someone left to get a parking spot.
Stay was fine, beds and pillows were nice. Free breakfast was for only two people per room, so all others had to pay. That doesn't qualify for free in my book.

Pros: Location, restaurant, and feeling of comfort the hotel offered.
Location: Lots of stuff to see and do.
Are stay was very relaxing, we were within walking distance of the convention center, Nicollet Mall, and downtown entertainment. We would definitely recommend to others and choose to stay there the next time we visit Minneapolis.

Economical stay right down town

The Normandy is a comfortable and reasonably priced option for staying in the city. Clean, friendly, and cozy. Convenient parking and shuttle service. Lovely restaurant as well. Milk and warm cookies in the lobby was a nice touch.

Pros: The staff, food, and room all exceeded our expectations.
Cons: A heating light in the bathroom.
Location: Vikings stadium is blocks away. Many theaters are a walk or free bus ride away.
From the front desk to the staff from the bar and grill, everybody was fantastic! Polite, helpful, happy, and caring are just a few of the many traits they showed. The free shuttle to the theater was a bonus. The kitchen even stayed open till 11 pm so late night craving could be dealt with. Great experience and will make this a go to hotel when in the Twin Cities!

I have stayed in this hotel about 10 years ago and today it is a polished gem of its former self. Clean, new rooms, excellent staff, and a really great restaurant. I brought my 15 year old son and his friend and we were able to stretch out in the room and not fall over each other.
