I needed a hotel close to the airport and close to shopping. This hotel is 5 minutes away from the Mall of America and 10 minutes away from the airport. Will definitely stay again.

We stayed here to go to a concert at Target Centre but also wanted to check out the mall. Shuttle service and the two drivers we had saved us a bunch of money. They suggested we take the metro to the concert for $1.75 instead of a cab. Our driver walked us country bumpkins through the whole process, including stops. It was flawless and helpful advice. The hotel is super trendy and comfortable. The 24-hr pantry saved us after the concert! My only complaint was there was no hot-tub/whirlpool. Not a deal breaker but just assumed with a pool there would be a hot tub. The staff were all super friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend this for location, price and quality!

Great looking small room, but........

by from Iowa
Posted Dec 26, 2016
Pros: Beautiful décor, recently renovated
Cons: Rather than torture your guests, please fix the darn HVAC system
The room was well decorated, quite, fresh, new and very clean. But..... the uncontrolled overwhelmingly HOT heating system and total lack of humidity reminded me of how pottery might feel when put in the oven to bake. Consequently, we both spent a sleepless and uncomfortable night.

Very nice! Close to Mall of America

Pros: The breakfast was awesome!!
Cons: Just the hot tub. Would be nice for those of us that don't swim.
Location: Mall of America is the only thing we had time for. We did go to Ikea the next day, which was right next to the hotel.
The hotel was awesome however, we came back from the mall hoping to hop into the hot tub to relieve stress on our feet but there was no hot tub. Also, it was a very bad snowy night and all of the roads were covered. Couldn't see the lines in the road to turn in to hotel. Not the hotel's fault by any means!! Luckily it was easy to find and very close to the mall. I would definitely stay there again. The breakfast was AMAZING even though we had to pay for it. Not a big deal. It was worth paying for!!
