Best Western Normandy or DoubleTree Guest Suites?

We are coming to Minneapolis for a wedding in June and these are the two hotels recommended by the bride & groom. We prefer Hilton hotels as we are HHonors members, but after reading reviews on Tripadvisor it sounds like the Best Western although rated lower by the industry is actually rated higher by users. Can anyone offer more insight as to the better hotel choice? Thank you!

The Doubletree was a good bargain for the price, when I stayed in late Feb. You can see my review of it by clicking on my screen name. There was renovation going on, so hopefully it's completed. I got a pre-paid rate of $69 which included breakfast, so I thought it was a great deal and earned me Hilton nights.

ok - if you do stay at the Normandy, insist on a newly remodled room. it's an older property a block from my condo

the Doubletree is very convenient on Nicollet Mall, next to Brits Pub, but again, an older property.

unless the wedding reception is at either of those places, I would stay elsewhere. there are plenty of nice/new hotels downtown Minneapolis, and if there isn't a convention or something you can get good prices

W, Westin, Grand, Marriott CityCentre, Graves, Residence Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hilton Garden Inn, Marquette Hotel (Hilton). The main Hilton is really old, so consider the Garden Inn or Marquette if you want to stay in network.
