Reviewed 4 January 2016

Absolutely loved this hotel. Great location downtown easy walking to other downtown attractions. Parking was only $8 and could come and go which is hard to find downtown for that price. Rooms were great, staff was very friendly. Got a suite that had a separate living area. This was perfect since we had other family staying here over the weekend...

A centrally located Inn which gives easy access to Minneapolis-St Paul. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. views of parking lots, which is to be expected in an inner city Inn. Plenty of parking, for which you pay. Breakfast was not included in the price of accommodation, but was excellent.

Stayed here for two nights for work. Hotel is clean and cozy. Front desk is very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if I'm in Minneapolis. Poll are looks nice although I didn't use it. They have a reduced direct tv package that has several had channels. Internet speeds are sufficient.

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...

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.
