Final Tastes of American Life.

A travel blog entry by florachen

... at a Mexican restaurant makes me ponder what kinds of crazy foods I'll be tasting in China. The Chinese have a saying "民以食为࣪ 5;“ which basically states that they regard cuisine as the most important thing in life. If this is true, I'm sure I will be trying many flavorful and interesting dishes that I wouldn't even have dreamed of.

Packing has been an arduous process but after double/triple checking ...

... Lucy" which is two burgers stuffed with cheese. I got mine with american, Jon had bleu cheese. We both agreed the american cheese stuffed one tasted better. We rounded out our day with a trip to Ikea which I had never been to. It was fun for us to look at home items and dream about when we would have a home of our own. That's all for now I am off to read a book..on my Kindle of ...

... see snow everywhere. It was amazing to get a car again…..driving is sooooooo much easier. No carrying your bags for miles on end, through subways and on buses, no trying to figure out where your hotel is….just put the postcode in the GPS and off you go. We were in our room an hour after getting off the plane. Now I’m knackered, and going to go to bed.

... you'll find it disperses more flavour throughout the entire mixture).

In a separate bowl, mix chopped up players with stripey button-up shirts and long pants. Sprinkle some caps over the mix to protect from light damage, and mitts to strengthen the weaker parts. For a stronger taste, add some tobacco. Mix in bat and small white ball (hopefully the players will be attracted to the bat. As heat increases though, they'll lose focus ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Minneapolis Bloomington W

    You get what you pay for

    from

    I am starting to see a pattern in the reviews for this hotel. They are either very nice or very bad and it seems to correspond with the amount of money the person paid for the room.

    Very disappointing!

    from

    I was disappointed in our stay. My family of four was there for 3 nights. We stay only at Choice Hotels, and expected this one to have the great standards the other hotels in this chain have. They didn't. Our room was TINY. It was too cramped to even "recline" in the recliner- the only "path" in the room was smaller than the width of the footrest! However this wasn't too much of a problem because so many springs in the recliner were broken that you couldn't sit comfortably anyway. The bathroom sink wouldn't drain. The "beautiful scenic views of the lake or downtown Minneapolis" must have only been from the 18th floor, because our room on the 8th floor overlooked the parking lot and air conditioning units. The balcony was only 18 inches deep at it's deepest point. It was barely big enough for one person to stand on at a time, much less put out a chair and sit! The balcony door did not lock. The initial clerk we checked in with was very rude, although the others I dealt with were pleasant and knowledgable about the area. Housekeeping was less than average, but in all honesty, there wasn't much that could be done to make this old, ratty room appear clean. We had a bad incident at the pool where a group of guests were partying with bottles of alcohol and very foul language in front of my young children. They were disappointed that much of our "pool time" was taken up at the front desk trying to get an employee to remove them from the pool, even though the signs clearly stated that no alcohol was allowed in the pool area.

    Great fruit plate

    from

    Seemed quite well maintained. Plentiful, good-sized bath towels. Surprised by large size of fresh fruit plate included with some breakfasts. Only disappointment pool closure last of 4-night stay. Concern about quality due to mixed reviews unwarranted.

    Not the best in the area

    from

    Stayed 3 nights at the Clarion in Oct. 2004. The purpose of my trip was to shop at the Mall Of America. The hotel offered shuttle pick up from the airport and to and from the mall.

    Great restaurant and bar

    from

    The common areas of the hotel were a little old and needs renovating. The room was above average with very comfortable beds. The restaurnat and bar are great. Food was above average as were the prices. Service. A+++. The only negative was the hours of the shuttle. If you dont rent a car, the shuttle stops picking up at the mall at 930. Dont plan a late dinner or movie as you will have to take a cab.

    Good service and deals here

    from

    WE spent two nights at the Clarion Hotel in

    Minneapolis and had a nice time. The hotel is older but they provide door to door service to the Mall of America and the front desk people were exceptional in their customer service. We got a package deal for the Mall of America and enjoyed the coupon book and the Aquariium as part of our fare there. They were expecting us and accepted our vouchers for the hotel very rapidly and check in was a breeze. Would definitely stay there again!

    Great Value for a family

    from

    This hotel turned out to be a great value for my family. We had no trouble at this economy hotel. Conveniently located, clean rooms, decent size indoor pool, and complimentary newspaper were all amenities. Room service was not used and their was no complimentary breakfast. This hotel was close to several chain resturants but you had to get on the interstate and get off at another exit to find fast food. Fairly close to the mall of America, but we did not see a shuttle....Great rate however made this worth it. The pool was small but clean.

    Terrible

    from

    Worse hotel I've ever seen-dining room is a joke. No professionalism at all.

    Avoid !!!

    from

    This is one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at!!! Stacks of dirty dishes were piled in the hallway for several hours, from room service I presume. The restaurant which opened nearly 30 minutes late, had mediocre food, the service was so-so, and it was a bit pricey as well. The paper thin walls of our room allowed us to experience every moment of the late night partying in several adjoining rooms, as well as their frequent toilet flushing. We had planned to stay a second night having paid in advance, but my wife and I thought, "No way!!". Upon checking out the following morning(after just one night), we were informed that there was no one of authority available to authorize any sort of refund or considerations. We will never return!!!

    Erate guarantee sucks

    from

    I made a booking with the central reservations at ... Their e-rate guarantee stipulated they would match and discount rates on the same hotel found on any other website by 10%. Well, I did find a cheaper rate on another website, but their customer service supervisor gave me all sorts of excuses as to why the rate could not be matched/discounted. These included being unable to access the other website, despite me giving explicit instructions, and providing email attachments. Choice Hotels did not live up to their guarantee, and I have since cancelled my reservation. I will not deal with a company that is not true to their word.
