Like most downtown hotels (in Minneapolis and elsewhere) you pay for parking here, and there's no free breakfast to be found. However, the Normandy Inn has free wi-fi in room as well as in the common areas (if you have an iPhone, just call the wi-fi number and tell them you keep having to sign in, and they'll whitelist your...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 February 2017 via mobile

This hotel was excellent. The room was very clean and had a very nice smell of citrus - made the stay very homey. They offer complementary milk and cookies in the lobby at 10pm. I ate at the restaurant from the hotel for both dinner and lunch and everything was delicious. Prices were reasonable. The only thing that tainted my...

Rakda, I am glad to hear that your overall experience was positive and that you enjoyed the nightly milk and cookies along with dinner and lunch in The Normandy Kitchen Cafe & Bar. I am sorry to hear that the shuttling part of your stay was so disappointing. While I am not able to undo what has been done please...

This was my second time here, came last month with my boyfriend, this time with 2 of my girlfriends, each time was an excellent experience! Chris at the front desk was so incredibly helpful! When we booked, there was only a King bed left but 3 of us, when we got here Chris let us know that there was an...

Great location in downtown Minneapolis. You can walk almost anywhere. Very nice lobby and restaurant/bar. Rooms are clean and a nice size. Very friendly staff. You do have to pay for parking which is too bad. I would ask for a room away from the pool because it did get a little loud with kids on the weekend.

This place is awesome. Everyone was very attentive and caring. Shuttle drivers at six in the morning as well as cleaners at three in the morning were there to take care of any questions. I haven't seen this level of service and care in a while.

A friend and I came to Mpls for a concert. I like the location of the hotel for the public transportation and restaurants and the Church we go to when in town. Hotel Staff were friendly and very helpful.

I rented 2 rooms for 7 ladies for a surprise party we put together for my sister! The front desk worked with us to make our stay really easy and fun. The pool and hot tub room is very pretty and large. Our rooms were comfortable and the beds were super soft and plush. The decorations in this hotel have...

Has the feel of Europe in decor, yet very clean and elegant. Large room with very cozy bed and pillows on two night anniversary stay. Had a regular room and were very pleased tho we spent little time in room. Just a few block walk to Nicollet Mall which has every kind of food imaginable--enjoyed Brit's Pub to go with...

We like the Normandy Inn. It's convenient in downtown and right next to the Skyway system. Even though the building is older, the rooms are clean and modern. The pool area is nice, and the hot tub is just the right temperature. We pay a little extra for the King Suite, but it's worth it. The people at the front...

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this little gem in the heart of Minneapolis is. The entire place is in great shape and very clean. The staff at the front desk were both friendly and very helpful. The attached bar/restaurant was a different story. It was also very nice and very clean but neither "bartender" that we dealt with...
