“Wonderful staying”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

It was awesome to stay with my family for two days at Park Plaza. My mother-in-law got a suite to stay with my 2 children, and it was just like a house (mini house).
We love that and we recommend it to everyone that is looking for a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: The blue light is beautiful Suite

We have stayed at this hotel on two separate trips in the past two months. The staff was excellent and made us feel welcome. It was convenient to shopping, restaurants, etc. Also, the price was excellent compared to other hotels in the area.

Right up front, I want to state that I took an online survey rating our experience, listing the good and the bad of our stay, and the hotel manager contacted me by email to respond. I was happy to hear that they were listening to my comments.

The room we stayed in was pet-friendly, which is why we stayed here. We provided our own kennel and kept the do-not disturb sign on the door so that our dog wouldn't bark when maid service entered the room. This worked out fine, I guess, because he didn't get us evicted after our first day there.

Pool was fine - our kids loved it, but what kid doesn't love a hotel pool?

Rooms were not as clean as I'd like, and they needed some updating and touching up where the wallpaper was peeling. I'm not an over the top germophobe, but a little more attention by housekeeping between guests would have been appreciated. We don't ask housekeeping to clean while we are there, because I don't think it's necessary, since no one does that for me at home, so I can't state how they clean up while you are a guest - only their cleaning between occupants.

Overall, I'd probably stay again if traveling with our dog. If he wasn't along, I'd probably not stay there. Rates were cheap, and I'd imagine the pet-friendly rooms aren't the best of the bunch so that if Fido eats the bedside table while you're in the pool, the hotel isn't out much. It seemed OK for the rate we paid. I'd have been sadly disappointed if we'd paid $300 a night for it, but the $70ish was acceptable.

We went to Minneapolis for a holiday visit and needed something comfortable and convenient. The Park Plaza was all that and more. It's a great hotel for the price. Sure, it's a little long in the tooth and could stand some more upgrades but the important upgrades are done. The bed was superb. The room was spacious and comfortable with an easy chair and desk along with the usual hotel room furnishings.

Have used the Park Plaza several times for park & fly purposes when flying out of Minneapolis International. Each time we have had tremendous service and the shuttle to and from the airport had been speedy and have never had a problem getting to or back from the airport. The staff is friendly & very helpful when needed for any reason. Great location is very peaceful and easy to get to. All-in-all, I recommend the Park Plaza when in town for a game, shopping or when flying out of MSP.

The Park Plaza was quite a nice hotel, and an excellent value for what we paid. The only issue I would have is that the bright blue light that shines on the building to illuminate the Park Plaza sign also bathes your room in an odd blue glow, but the curtain does a fine job in mitigating the light.

PeteBoese, General Manager at Park Plaza Bloomington, responded to this review, 12 December 2011
Thank you so much for the favorable review of the hotel, we all appreciate your business and weill look forward to your next visit. If I can ever be of personal assistance to you, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel. I am glad that you were able to utilize the black out curtains to curtail the effects of the uplighting at the hotel. We changed them to the blue color a few years ago to cut down on the intensity of the pure white lights that flooded the rooms. The lighting also assists guests in finding our location.
