Wonderful family weekend

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Always had smiles and greeted us every time we came back. Minnesota was much cooler outside than where we came from so the fresh coffee that was available in the lobby and cookies 24 hours was very nice to have available. Our room was very modern and clean and we had an adjoining room with our older children which was very convenient. The mattress was a bit too firm for us, but otherwise the room was perfect. We spent alot of time at Mall of America which was just a walk across the street and so very convenient. The breakfast had many good choices, hot and cold and tasted great. The ham, sausage and waffles were being made as needed and not just sitting under heat lamps so it was very fresh. There are tons of restaurants in the Mall and also Ihop and TGIFridays attached to the hotel. We never had to worry about where to eat.

Love this Hotel!

This was our second stay at this hotel. It is right across the street from the Mall of America, and there are two restaurants just outside the hotel doors. We book a king suite, so that we can have two TVs. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and are very clean; it is noticeably quiet, which is always a good thing; the staff are very cordial and efficient. AND, the rates are very reasonable for such a great stay. When we come to the cities, we will always try to book here, first.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

As I said before, the hotel is across the street from the Mall of America, and other shopping malls are just short drives away. Nice to return to such a nice, comfortable suite after a day of shopping.

Walking distance to Mall of America.

Easy walk, even in the winter to Mall of America. Attached to TGIF Fridays! Not bad with good happy hours. Staff nice and helpful. Good shuttle service. Can take shuttle to Mall of America, if don't want to walk to the mall. There is a skywalk from one side of road to the mall. Has a reading library welcome to borrow a book. Breakfast looked good. Just had the orange juice. Complimentary starting at 6 am.

Twin Cities Grill in Mall of America. Yum Also very good Italian resturant in Mall of America Take the second level when leaving Mall of America, will take you into the new Radisson Blue, which helps save some outdoor steps when it is really cold.

Pefect location when going to the Mall of America!

Perfect location- across the street from the Mall. Walk across the parking lot, across a street to the skywalk. Pleasant desk help. Clean rooms. Nice to sit in the spa, hot tub when it was cold outside. Heater worked good & warm shower water. Like the layout of the room with sink in the same area as the stool. Pretty lobby. Very good, hot breakfasts. TGIF & IHop in the building. Good price. We have enjoyed Country Inn & Suites in other states thanks to their amenities, clean rooms, staff & value. Nice pick!

Enjoyed

A large, but well run hotel. Two buildings connected by a walkway, all very orderly. Super cold in Bloomington so appreciated a TGIF being located in the same building.
