Soft Mattress

In general, an adequate stay. The room and hotel were reasonably clean; however, the internet service was sporadic (we stayed in the back wing of the hotel) and the mattress was unusually soft (we're use to hotels having relatively firm mattresses). Good location. For the money, I considered it a pretty decent value.

Close to great food and entertainment

Although the Normandy is an old hotel, it has been kept up to date. It is within walking distance from great food, music, and sports. Very affordable for downtown Minneapolis!

Good location for Vikings game

Restaurant was a bit pricy but maybe not for the big city. Other than that, stay was enjoyable. Location was a short 5-6 block walk from Metrodome. Many guests were there for the game. Cookies and milk at 10pm was a huge hit and the cookies came warm right out of the oven!
