Stay at the hotel for the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. Location is good, a little off the way from the warehouse district where most of the excitement happens. But was able to walk to the Target Center in about 10 minutes. The hotel itself is unique. The room pretty average. I had a double queen room. Beds were comfortable....

This hotel is a hidden gem in the big towering city. My entire family stayed here while my son got married. We loved the simplicity of getting around, the covered handicap parking with ease to the doors, and the friendly customer service who helped us get around town and find what we needed. Thank you for a great stay and...

The Suites at the Normandy were excellent !! Two rooms, each with a TV. The usual microwave, coffeemaker, but the fridge had separate fridge and freezer, and more. The lobby is large enough to meet with friends, but, because we had a suite, we took our drinks up and had a wonderful, private conversation. Minneapolis is great for bird watching...

Great place to stay. The location was easy to get in and out of. Onsite parking was nice and only cost $9.00 per night. The property was clean and the rooms were nice. One of the best value hotels I've stayed at.(I stay about 36 nights per year in hotels) I will definitely go back.

This hotel is a gem, like it has been transplanted from the north of France into downtown Minneapolis. It's an older property but has been nicely kept. The room was extremely comfortable, I slept like a rock! Within walking distance of downtown attractions. The hotel restaurant is worth checking out as well.

Great location. Good value. Friendly people. Great parking. Pool / sauna was nice for the family. No better place to stay downtown. The newly remodeled restaurant is a perfect spot. This place feels like you are on vacation!

My wife's 85 year old uncle had three multi-day stays at HCMC, the MN trauma center, over a five week period. I picked the BW Normandy for my wife's aunt to stay because it is only 3 blocks away, they have a standing shuttle, and the prices and parking were very good. What a surprise!
