Weekend Get-A-Way

We were in town for Frozen on Ice. Clean, comfortable rooms. Close to Mall of America and the light rail to downtown. Good hot and cold breakfast items and the rates were very reasonable.

Great place to stay

The amenities here are amazing! Wonderful restaurant, up-scale bar, deluxe breakfast free with the room, kiosk to print airline boarding passes at no charge. The room has a small bathroom, but overall, this is quite a value!

Great place to stay

The free breakfast is amazing-real plates and flatware. My omelet was cooked when I ordered it. There is a place to print boarding passes at no charge. Also, it was so nice to have plug-ins right on the night stand. No problem plugging in my CPAP, which is unusual for a hotel. My only dislike is that the bathroom is on the small side-but all the included amenities more than make up for it. A really great value! The hotel has a lovely restaurant and an upscale bar.

Close to mall with better price than most

Flexible late check in, friendly staff at bar, good fondue! Clean room. Good breakfast, just didn't see that areas were spread out for eggs, potatoes, sausage and waffles though there was a sign:)
