eh.

I was unimpressed with this hotel. My first room smelled strange, and so I needed to be relocated. The staff said it was the new curtains. I'm not so sure. I will probably not stay here again.

Great value for business travel

Hotel was really nice and clean. Good atmosphere and genuine decor. Front desk staff very helpful and professional. Close enough to Nicolet Mall and the convention center. Great bartending at the attached Normandy Kitchen, though drinks are steep $. The only thing I was dissatisfied with was the Wifi signal in room 115; only one bar at most times.

decent but gloomy

i think the public decor is gloomy and the public corridor carpeting stained...but the rooms clean, the workout area nice, and the pool looked nice. I liked the convenient parking right behind the hotel. There is good access to freeways which was important to me. I did order room service and was called back that they did not have enough staff to deliver..could i come down?? ( about 8 pm). That was wierd. also no room service for breakfast. Probably would pay a little more for less dark decor.

We had a great experience @ the Best Western in downtown Minneapolis. The staff was lovely and they made great recommendations for local places to eat. We plan to stay there next time we head to Minnesota.
