Ranked #9 of 52 Hotels in Minneapolis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2014

My husband and son so enjoyed our recent stay at the Normandy Inn. We had dinner at the Normandy Kitchen (delicious) and had a swim in the pool. We found the service of the hotel and restaurant to be excellent. Thank you for your hospitality!

I stayed here for 1 night for a conference. The rooms were pretty spacious and the amenities were pretty standard. The staff were all extremely friendly. The food in the restaurant was also good. The best feature was the fact that it is located 3 blocks from the light rail for easy transport to the airport and around Minneapolis. Good value if you want an affordable hotel in the downtown area.

In a king suite with my spouse and adult son, this hotel is a great alternative to much more expensive downtown properties. The only complaint we have is the Sleeper Sofa which is not one to encourage sleep. Great location, cheap parking adjacent to the hotel, quiet rooms, and attentive staff. There is a reason this place is highly rated!

Room Tip: Our top floor room was virtually silent.

The rooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. The fridge in the room was nice. There was no microwave in the room. Wi-Fi was slow. Hotel was located 3 blocks from the light rail transit. Easy to get to Target Field, entertainment district, airport and Mall of America. Shuttle service was inconsistent.

I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again. Very clean and great location to walk to many downtown activities including bars, restaurants, and Target complex. My group consisted of 2 couples and we spent plenty of time in the pool area and lounge. The pool was well taken care of and clean and the lounge was perfect for waiting for the girls to get ready and relax for a nightcap and the end of the evening.

A fairly good choice in downtown Minneapolis. Rates are good, and the rooms are generally fine -- fairly spacious, comfortable bed, and generally clean. It is a bit old, and could use some renovation and upgrading. Parking is good value (8 USD per 24 h), but the space is a bit crammed, requiring some manouvering (especially if you're not in a compact car). On the down side -- WiFi is (although free) very slow and a burden to use. The gym is very small and with very little Equipment. So all-in-all, you do get what you pay for -- don't expect five-star standard, but it is still a decent choice in the downtown area.

Very spacious room, great service, food and drinks on site. Parking not a problem. Loved it!! If you want contemporary, this is not it. If you want to appreciate a bit of history and rich woodwork, this is your place.
