I have commuted from New Orleans to Minneapolis for the last several years and I usually stay there five or six nights per month. Initially, I would stay at random hotels throughout the city and most of them were OK but nothing really special. But then I discovered the Westin Hotel in Edina and I have never stayed anywhere else since then. The staff at this hotel have continued to impress me with their dedication to professionalism and making their guests feel truly comfortable and at home. And, it is the subtle things that they continually do without ever missing a beat that help travelers deal with the stresses of being away from home. I have been fortunate to enjoy stays at some of the ultra premium brands such as Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, and Mandarin Oriental and I really believe that the Westin Edina does a better job at consistently exceeding my expectations during every visit than some of these hotels that can charge a small fortune for a stay. The specifics: I tend to be a germophobe and when I see hotel bathtubs, my mind tells me that they are only there for show - certainly not to use. However, their bathrooms are spotless and I always enjoy the fantastic deep soak tubs which I would normally never even consider doing. You could even eat off the toilet they are so clean. (OK, that might not be a good idea.) Seriously though, the rooms are spotless, the linens are soft, the entrance to the hotel is stunning, it is incredibly modern, the appointments to make you feel at home are superb and most importantly, you are taken care of by a team of professionals that never seem to have a bad day. I really believe that this staff could teach the ultra premium brands a thing or two about taking care of their guests. And, I always leave this hotel feeling much better than when I arrived. If you are looking for a little gem just outside the city, you cannot go wrong with this hotel. Of the ten or fifteen hotels that I have stayed at in Minneapolis, none of them even compare to the Westin Edina Galleria.
