“Loved the Westin Galleria!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2009

My family stayed at the Westin Edina Galleria just before the holidays, and had a terrific stay. The lobby was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the rooms were spacious and well appointed. The bathrooms were enormous by hotel standards, with both a bathtub and shower. The Heavenly Beds were...well...heavenly.

Complimentary bottled water for their SPG guests was a nice touch, also. We ate a couple of time at the McCormick & Schmicks (connected through the lobby), and had great service and wonderful food on both occasions.

A real bonus was the underground tunnel access to the Galleria shopping facility. On a weekend when wind-chills were well below zero, it was really great to be able to avoid the weather. Overall, this was genuinely a wonderful experience.

I have tried to find when this hotel opened, because everything seemed brand new (which it probably was). The lobby is gorgeous, and the rooms equally well furnished. The bathroom in my king room had a tub and separate shower, a nice touch when space is often at a premium. All the products were Heavenly-branded, and the bed was comfortable as always. The move to flat-screen TVs is welcome, as it makes the room seem bigger - my only complaint would be that the screen was very difficult to turn, so I had to crane my neck from the desk to watch. The Internet worked without a hitch, and at $9.95 a day, relatively inexpensive for a hotel of this quality.

Service was exemplary - the front desk staff was courteous upon check-in and check-out (I'm a sucker for when they come around the desk and direct you to the elevators, I suppose). Also, the room service attendant even fulfilled what had to be the dumbest request - I asked for a to-go cup for my pot of coffee, not realizing that there were multiple in-room coffee cups right there. Rather than making me feel idiotic, she went down to the kitchen and retrieved me a to-go cup as requested. I apologized when she returned, but was amazed at the promptness of service. I will definitely stay here again if in the area - I hope they can keep up the high standards!

  • Liked — Cleanliness and the 'new' feel about it
  • Disliked — Must Westin charge a la carte for everything?

I travel regularly to the Minneapolis/St Paul metro for business. I've stayed in a variety of hotels but this Westin has become my favorite by far. The ambiance is everything they advertise it to be. And being connected to the mall is a great plus for cold Minneapolis evenings. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for great options in a trendy and fun part of the city.

From the moment you walk in to the Westin Galleria, you feel relaxed and pampered. The staff was amazing - when we realized there was only 1 bathrobe and 2 of us, someone immediately brought us another one. At the front desk, we asked about a complimentary newspaper - they asked which paper we would like & what time we would like it delivered. Their customer service exceeds any we have experienced in hotels. Their Heavenly Bed & Bath is truly heavenly - beds were plush & comfortable, and the bathroom had a huge corner walk-in shower with 2 shower heads, a deep tub and a built-in makeup mirror. There was a large flat screen TV in the room and a beautiful view of the Minneapolis skyline out the window. The pool/hot tub area was clean and inviting and there was a lighted courtyard with music playing from outdoor speakers. Hotel is right across the street from Southdale Mall and numerous restaurants, a SuperTarget store, a Barnes & Noble and various other shops.

Two thumbs up!
