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:)

Waiting alone.

I would not advise checking in late, sat in the lobby for a half hour waiting for a person to show up and check me in. Not good

Room was clean....staff was very helpful. Only downside was the breakfast Sunday am. Had to wait on food and the eggs and sausage really weren't very good. other than that, it was a great stay.

Excellent

We stayed four nights. Our room was very, very clean and we didn't mind spending time in it betweent schedules. The bathroom was very clean too. It was nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The staff were all so cheery inclduing the cleaning crew which did a really nice job in our room. Jason, the desk manager accommodated and personalized our needs and gave us a great tip on getting out of the area without running into terrible Monday morning rush hour. I would recommend this hotel for families, older people and inbetween. Do not hesitate to make reservatioins at this hotel which is also close to the airport and to the Mall of America with shuttle service to both places.
