My granddaughter & I drove to MN to attend a Vikings game and had no problem getting to the hotel or parking. This was my first stay here and will not be my last! The convenient location, closeness to the light train & their shuttle service makes travel easy & stress free! We also felt safe walking in this area....

Stayed at the Normandy Inn for two nights, it has plenty of character and is in a great location with easy self parking for a small daily fee. The desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful, providing us with a map and printed instructions on how to use local transport to get to the Xcel Energy Center for a hockey...

Memories of King Flour in his Day, pour through the beamed hallways, of this historic hotel. When Minneapolis was really the Mill City -- the Normandy provided a home, away from home, for sojourners from the Golden West. Grain barons of vast domains, in Western Minnesota, and Dakotas might rest -- before sifting through their futures -- at the Minneapolis...

I love the Normandy Inn and Suites. It is a clean, comfortable hotel with an extremely friendly staff. It's become the only place I'll stay when I come to Minneapolis. It's within walking distance from Target Field. The cost is reasonable for a downtown place. I'm very picky. My husband calls me a hotel "princess" since I can't handle dirty...

We've been coming here since the 1960's, during which time it has been progressively updated. It has always been a pleasant stay. Among the nice amenities are free shuttle service to downtown theaters and great chocolate chip cookies served with milk in the lounge, also free, each evening at 10 p.m. The restaurant does a good job. It has its...

We enjoyed our stay at the Normandy Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We especially liked the filtered hot and cold water which eliminates the need for bottled water. There was also a recycling bin in the room which is a nice addition that many hotels do not have. The room had a mini fridge and a safe....

Because of plane flight delays I was not able to meet my wife on time at this location. She tried to check in on our reservation but because her overseas credit card did not work, they would not accept cash for a deposit until I got there. Luckly, our stateside credit card worked. But staff just said no to cash...

Since we are on a fixed income, a continental breakfast is essential to any motel stay -- saves a lot of money (and my wife was told that there *is* a continental breakfast here)! Other than that, our stay could not have been more pleasant! Great bed, cleanliness, staff, central location -- it's all here! The ONLY reason I downgraded...
