“Amazing Stay”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

This is my first time at this Westin location and it will not be the last. From the moment we arrived the staff has been helpful, the room amazing (other than a heat issue but maintenance was up in less than five minutes to try and fix the issue), the bathroom was well appointed and the restaurant BANK? Beyond delicious. We made a point to eat there one morning, one afternoon and one evening - and it was fantastically priced for the location and quality - the staff was helpful and when we had ordered an appetizer that was Chef's Choice, the chef himself came out and went over the dish with us. It's withing walking distance to shopping and even more great dining experiences - overall - VERY satisfied and will be back again>

Room Tip: Join the Starwood Rewards program - you get a higher floor - so less traffic or lobby overflow noise...

Green Features: They have green options - like re-using towels, keeping your sheets for the length of your stay - but unlike some I have been too it's not shoved down your throat and there isn't a passive aggressive guilt trip if you want fresh sheets or towels.

We stayed as a family of 3 for 12 days in August and it became a home from home! The staff are friendly and helpful(special mention to Jon Nack in reservations for sorting out an extra bed for us!)The location is wonderful - out of the hotel and you are 2 minutes from Saks, Maceys and everything else in downtown including lots of great restaurants. Rooms are beautifully decorated, huge,with very comfortable beds and peaceful. We loved the restaurant and bar in the lobby - food was very good quality. Also made full use of the well equipped gym and the swimming pool.The hotel is also 2 minutes walk from the tram that goes directly to the airport and the mall of America. Can't think of anyhting negative at all!

I stayed here on business in October and really enjoyed it. I’m usually a Hilton person but Starwoods is winning me over with hotels like this.

The room was great – clean extremely comfortable bed, spacious and well furnished.

When you walk into the hotel the lobby, restaurant and bar area are located in a historical beautiful bank building. You really need to check it out.

Good hotel with a great lobby. The staff was very friendly and the location was good. The only issue is that the rooms are very small and our view was terrible. The stay was good overall, and depending on the price, I would stay again.

The Westin is conveniently located in downtown, and reasonable close to attractions like the Guthrie Theatre. The former bank building boasts an impressive lobby which houses the bar and restaurant. Room layout was a little unusual with the desk right inside the door and the rest of the room down a short corridor, but it was clean and comfortable with the always-excellent Westin bed.

Pros: Room, location
cons:no view
They upgraded my room to a suite, but there is no good view, I guess this is because the city,maybe there is no great view at any hotels here. Other than that the hotel is great, a westin level.

A great property....and terrific SPG experience. The building itself was a bank till about a couple of decades back.

The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The restaurant closes a bit early, but its got a good vibe when its open. Located in a beautiful neighbourhood, and close to a lot of commercial establishments, makes this place great one to stay. If u into using the fitness center, its quite nice with multifunction equipment and sufficiently large floor spaces.
