Bring earplugs for some rooms

Pros: The cookies all day, the bountiful and varied breakfast, the close proximity to the rapid transit and the mall.
Location: The mall is a short walk as is the Metra rail line.
The breakfast food was good and varied a bit each day. The breakfast area is large and kept clean. The indoor pool was mostly unused and in partial view of the lobby. Friday's restaurant can be reached by an indoor hallway. The mall is walking distance and was deserted during the day except for Toddler Tuesdays when special programs draw people there. The hotel and restaurant try to keep the walkways clear of ice but although they salted most of the walks around the hotel entrance, my wife slipped and fell down hard 15 feet outside the entrance to Fridays (about 75 feet from the hotel entrance) as we were walking to the mall. Also, the very slippery median strip on the road between Fridays and the mall is not salted. Two weeks later my wife is still recovering. Our son and his wife had room 219 and we had the adjacent room 220. At about 4 AM delivery trucks arrive just outside the window. Then at 5 AM the garbage is picked up. Apparently the laundry area is below this area of the hotel. It starts up about 6 AM unless a repair truck shows up as it did at 3 AM. Then it runs earlier. When our rooms had not been cleaned by 2:45 PM we asked the housekeepers far down the hallway when they would be. They asked, "why did they put you in those rooms?" Most rooms in our hall seemed unoccupied. Airline personnel do stay at this hotel in quieter room locations. The panel on the heater fell off when our toddler grandson touched it, exposing uninsulated electrical connections.

Pros: Convenient location, friendly staff
Cons: no complaints
Location: Close to Mall of America, Ikea, airport, metro line to airport and beyond
Good choice if you need a clean, convenient room during your shopping trip to Mall of America. This hotel is across the street - close enough that you can leave your coat in your hotel room and dash to the mall, even in frigid weather. The breakfast is included in the room price and it's better than many "free" breakfasts that hotels offer.

The fellow checking us in was great, but the wait to get checked in was not. They should give him some help!

The hotel is located right across the street from the Mall. Walking is quick and safe via the pedestrian bridge. Our room was ready and clean when we arrived. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast had many options and they kept it fully stocked even on the busy weekend. We are already planning our next stay.
