Grand Lodge: Hotel for everyone

This wonderful hotel opened in May 2006 and has been working hard to provide a great experience to families, couples and business people since. The hotel is constantly adding amenities based on the needs of their clients.

This hotel is an indoor waterpark/spa hotel and personally, it is one of my favorite that I have been to. We have a lot of waterpark hotels in our area and this one was truly unique. The hotel theme is that of a lodge with huge fireplaces throughout the hotel and as big as it is, it is still able to keep the cozy feel of a much smaller hotel. The water park is amazing! There are huge tube slides, a lazy river, a huge kids area and even a surfing pool. The spa was phenomenal and had awesome prices... a one hour massage for $80!!! Ask for Ruben... he has magic hands! There is a really good restaurant and bar right on sight, a great cafe for coffee and drinks and a huge arcade.

Not only is this hotel suitable for families, but they also cater to business travelers. The business room rate includes access to a VIP lounge which serves a continental breakfast during the week and is equiped with wireless. The manager told us that they are very business oriented during the week when the waterpark is usually devoid of kids and families.

The rooms are perfect. The 2 queen room would be a good choice for business travelers, the king room comes with a pull out couch and seperated bunk beds. The family suites are spectacular, but pricey. However, due to being a newer hotel the manager is always willing to make a deal and/or give upgrades if the hotel isn't at full capacity.

My ONLY complaint about this hotel is the free shuttle service offered. There is a shuttle that is supposed to run every 30 mins between the Mall of America and every hour on the hour to the airport, however it seems to never be where it is supposed to be. Not sure if that is something they are working on or not, but a cab to the Mall is about $6 with tip... more for the airport.

The spa is TO DIE FOR!

The waterpark is huge and so much fun!

The staff was nothing short of amazing.

Spring Hill Suites, Eden Prairie: Great Accomodation for Business or Pleasure

Karen has stayed at the SpringHill Suites, Eden Prairie on several occasions on her business trips to Minneapolis so we decided to see if they would have a good weekend rate for our romantic interlude in Minneapolis. They did - a great accomodation for less than $80 plus tax, which is considerably less than the weekday rate for business travelers.

Our suite consisted of three different areas for working, sitting and sleeping, in addition to the bathroom. As is the case in all Mariott facilities everything was first class. There was an indoor swimming pool and the free breakfast buffet that came with our room included fruit, cereal, rolls, eggs, sausage, waffles and more. The hotel is just a few miles from the Mall of America and the airport. It is just a few miles further to downtown Minneapolis. Restaurants some shops are within walking distance.

Hotel Minneapolis: Interesting though generically named hotel

The Hotel Minneapolis occupies an interesting space in a recently renovated office building in the central downtown district - though to be precise, it's on the northern end, not that far from the Guthrie Theatre and the Mississippi River. The public spaces are large, comfortable, and well-designed, so this feels much more luxurious than your typical "boutique hotel," which I believe is the niche which this establishment is seeking to fill. The rooms are very well equipped and carefully tended, and I greatly enjoyed sleeping on my exceptionally comfortable guest bed. Through Priceline I was able to get an excellent weekend rate, and a nearby parking garage provided inexpensive "in and out" shelter for my vehicle.

This operation is part of Marriot's "Autograph collection" of properties. Marriott really does know how to put together a comfortable room. My room was maybe a little bit on the smaller side, but I really liked the dramatically high ceilings. In all there are 222 rooms, which is neither too many nor too few. Another good thing about the Hotel Minneapolis is its proximity to some very good restaurants in this part of town. It's an easy walk to an array of interesting independent eateries.

Days Inn Mall of America: Days Inn...As close as you can get

Close to the mall, but price should be the major consideration when choosing this hotel, as it is pretty basic as far as hotels go.

We stayed there in 1992, and the hotel was OK, but showing signs of wear. We visited friends who were staying there in 2002, and major upgrades had been made.

It is located immediately across the street from The Mall of America, so access to the money pit is great.

The Days Inn is wonderful for children. The pool area is clean, bright, but the pool was over chlorinated on our last visit.

IHOP (International House of Pancakes) is readily available, with free parking for guests. If you are flying out of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport, arrangements may be made to leave your vehicle on site. However, it is expected that you stay an additional nite upon your return, but it is not mandatory.

Expect to be quoted a high rate initially upon booking, but dicker on price before giving your credit card number, you'll be amazed at your savings. Be prepared to walk away.

There are lodging every where in MN. You shouldn't have any troubles trying to find some where to stay. I would probably say to goto the downtown hotels or near the mega mall if you want to stay in the city.
The place where we stayed at was pretty spendy for the weekend. I would say about $500 dollars. In the city you can stay anywhere in any price range!

I always stay with family since I was born here and still have plenty of relatives in the Twin Cities. For those of you who don't have this luxury, don't worry. Minneapolis has all the major hotel chains and you can jump on the Internet and easily book a hotel room.

For a good cheaper hotel a would recommend the Holiday Inn Express - St. Paul. I've often liked Holiday Inn Express hotels because they're cheap, clean, comfortable and offer free breakfast. The hotel has 107 rooms with an indoor pool and whirlpool. It is conected to the historic Bandana Square shopping complex by a skyway.

The hotel is located in the restored railroad shops of St. Paul's 'Empire Builder' tycoon, James J. Hill—the entire complex is on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel doesn't have its own restaurant, but next door (and connected by skyway) is Bandana Square, with a few lunch places and the superlative Dakota Bar and Grill.

As usual any motel near the airport is pricey. If you pick one in EAgan (a So. suburb of St. Paul and close to the airport) and the prices go down a bit. The same for getting into Eden Prairie. If you book a motel in Mtka or Plymouth ( safe W & NW suburbs), you'll drive via I-494 and it will take you 30-40 minutes in non rush hour.
$60-90 for things like Holiday Express, Americinn.
If you ask for a Great Rate at the Holiday Inn, you get the cheapest rate available- unless you have some other discount connection.

Fairfield Inn: Fairfield Inn



I have not stayed at this particular Fairfield Inn but I have stayed at others throughout the country. They are very nice, simple hotels with a free continental breakfast. This chain is owned by the Marriot.

Country Inn Suites: Real close to Mall of America

This hotel is located within a five minute walk to the Mall of America entrance. Ideally situated for families with young children and for the older folk who want to save their energy for the Mall itself.

Typical Country Inn Suite accomodation, very friendly and helpful, with lots of easy parking.

Ma Kettle and I stayed here twice, and have sampled both the regular rooms as well as the suites. Nice, but not exceptional. However, my mother-in-law got upgraded upon check in, and her room was exceptional posh. Please be aware we had been travelling a lot this trip, logged many, many miles, and I could be confused.

Country Inn Suites are not luxurious, but are very comfortable. Beds are firm, offer good support, and cleanliness is always A1.

Country Inn is located directly across the street from the USA's largest shopping mecca - Mall of America. It is just minutes from Minneapolis/St Paul International airport, and offers complimentary shuttle service for guests. Rental rate includes a continental breakfast (cereal, toast, yogurt, muffins, fruit etc.) or you have a choice of two restaurants, TGI Friday's and IHOP International House of Pancakes ( which is open 24hrs). The pool area features two heated indoor pools and two whirlpools, a fitness center, etc. All rooms have a coffee machine with coffee/tea.

Suites are equipped with microwaves, refrigerators, and double pull out couches. Business King Suites offer work desk, ergo chairs, smart lamps, and complimentary wireless high speed internet 'access'.

Mystic Lake Casino and Hotel: A luxury Hotel at Moderate Price

Attached to the Casino owned by Shakopee Sioux Indians ( that is not what they call themselves), this luxuriously appointed hotel is staffed by friendly people. I arrived there without a reservation after being told that the hotel was full. The evening manager who looked like he was from India did manage to find me a room..with luxury the kind I had seen in private villas in the north coast of Jamaica.. poster beds... ample size beds, plenty of bathroom supplies..etc and a nice view of the marshes to boot..
The price was only that which is charged for a room at one of the ordinary hotel chains

Friendliness of the staff. The ethiopian cleaning staff and the ethiopian men who worked as porters. The diabetic man who said his diabetes was caused by agent orange in vietnam who parked the car.

Days Inn-Mall of America: The best location for the Mall of America

This hotel is directly across the street from the Mall of America. It was built in 2000 and is fairly new. The hotel shuttle runs every hour from the hotel and is free of charge. They will even hold your bags until you are ready to leave. If you are heading out on to the airport after being at the Mall of America then they will bring your bags with them when you leave from the Mall. This really helps when it is -9 below and snowing!!

They have a fairly large indoor pool and wirlpool that is great when there is snow on the ground! I would highly recommend that you bring your bathing suit any time of year.
