Hello all! just writing to you all from Panera Bread in Minnesota! Also writing to you on my brand new Kindle Fire HD that my husband bought me as an early birthday gift! He is the best!! ;) So blessed to be married to him. Ok I'll stop with the mushiness... so Jonathan and I have had this week off and it's been great!!;We have gone to the Mall of …
David picked me up from work and off we go! Met the Cote's for dinner at the Iron Horse, Carol, Lawrence and Aron. Happy early birthday Aron!
The car is stored at the hotel and I have time to do a final "think" on how things are packed. Sleep in tomorrow and off by noon. Next stop LAX!
... Mall of America. The mall is big with the stores in an outer circle and four levels leaving space for kiddie rides in the middle which included a roller coaster. I had a great meal in a barbecue restaurant comprising of a burger with brisket added to the burger meat, topped with pulled pork and two thick slices of jalapeno bacon with chip - Yum!
Wonder how hot it will get tomorrow?
... ve been to Germany, too. My transatlantic flight was in a Boeing 747 (the one with two levels). Flying in one of these is something that I've always wanted to do, so I can cross that off of my list. After finally taking a bus from Chicago to Milwaukee and getting a ride from my Grandmother, I finally made it home. It's good to be back!
I'm planning on writting a couple of more posts about where I am now as well as some reflections and observations about my travels. Thanks for ...
... that I am thankful. We got to the airport at 4:15 am and got through the security quite quickly without any delays. Once we hit the gate they were asking for volunteers to give up seats since they had overbooked. Go figure! Nope, not me...I'm not giving up my seat for nothing! Last I heard as we were boarding was an offer of $600.00 Delta Dollars and they would put you on a flight tomorrow morning. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Minneapolis - Airport West Bloomington
Business travelers and family, you won't be dissapointed. I typically stay in Hotels 4 evenings per week in my business travel. I cover a five state area including Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. I have not experienced a more friendly and "feel like your home" hotel than the Crown Plaza in Bloomington. The reception desk personnel, bar and lounge, restaurant, hotel management staff, waiters and chef are all unbelieveably personable and friendly. The first time you stay you will want to come back. The Hotel reception welcomes you with friendly, helpful, knowldegeable staff always asking how can they make your stay better. You have to see the reception desk which is unlike any other as there is a full wall computerized screen to keep you up todate while you check in. It is great for things like the weather with a radar screen providing weather patterns that can actually help you plan your flight arrangements. Additionally you can review highlights of the daily news which come on screen. Don't be surprised if you walk in and actually see a personalized greeting with your name on the board. The main lounge is off the recpetion area with a warm friendly staff where you can sit in front of the fireplace have a drink, read the paper with a large flat screen TV where you can watch all of your favorite sporting events or reality TV shows. You will also be served exceptional tasting food either in the main dining room and or bar/lounge. The rooms are exceptional with large comfortable beds with all of the ammenities you need in this high tech world. You will have availablitly of high speed and wireless connections throughout. They have a large clean swimming pool and spa with a exercise room. Above all the number one thing you will experience is the hotel staff. They have many long term employees and new employees all of whom will make it a point to get to know you and introduce you to other guests. I have been staying at this hotel almost weekly for about 7 years and would not stay at another hotel along the Bloomington 494 area. There is no reason to as you have it all at this crown Plaza. I see a lot of familiar faces on each stay which backs up my own experience and feelings about the Crown Plaza.
Nice Hotel, Great Location
The rooms are well above average and the beds are the most comfortable I have slept on in a hotel. Front desk staff was very helpful. Close to the mall, food, and sports bars. I will always stay here when in Minneapolis.
I thought it was great! I spent one night at this hotel and stayed on the women's floor. To gain access to the floor you must use your keycard and only women can stay on the floor, so it's a nice secure place for women travelling alone. Another perk is the refrigerator stocked with pop, water, milk, yogurt, cheese and fruit; and a shelf of crackers, rice krispie bars and other low-fat snacks for everyone to enjoy! This refrigerator is in a little bay in the hallway and if your room is across from it like mine was it can get a little noisy! The room was nicely done in warm, inviting colors, and the bed was very comfortable! In your room there is a packet of sleep aids such as lavender spray, ear plugs, an eye mask, and a relaxation CD. I'm looking forward to staying there again!
I wanted to share an awesome experience I had with the Crowne Plaza in Bloomington on February 28, 2005.
My husband and I booked the Crown Plaza on their website and we received a great rate for a deluxe King room. We were going for our anniversary and were in need of an excape from the kids. The location was great for visiting the Mall of America and the action in downtown Minneapolis and still close to the airport but we did not have to deal with airport noise like some hotels near the Mall or airport. The shuttle to the airport and Mall of America was great and right on time coming and going. The facilities were contemporary art-deco. which was a nice change and the pool and business center was high standard. We loved our room. The decorative touch and little amenites were nice. The best part was the amazing beds!! They are everything they promote. We slept so comfortable and I was impressed with the whole "sleep advantage" One small complaint and hopefully a suggestion for them is we asked for the "quiet-zone" floor which we received. The floor is located on the 5th out of 6 floors. We were bothered with TV noise above and kids running on the upper hallway floor. They should switch the quiet floor to the 6th floor so the noise factor is taken care of. We did have one small problem in our room. The toilet ran every 15 minutes and we reported the problem the next morning and were assured it would be taken care of that day. Alas, when we got back to our room later that evening, the toilet still ran every 15 minutes and we dealt with it until we checked out the next morning and reported it again. They serve a great Sunday brunch and as a surprise to us, the hotel sent champaigne and strawberries to our room upon arrival at no charge with a individual signed note from the entire front desk and restaurant staff at no charge to say Happy Anniversary. Overall, very nice stay and would book another stay there again. If you are a single woman traveling or a group of women staying at a hotel, check out this hotel, they have a floor just for "ladies only" that provides extra security and extra amenities. Looked very interesting and may be of interest to women traveling alone.
Myself and a group of friends stayed at the Crowne Plaza in November 2004 for 5 days.
We were upgraded to the ladies only floor which featured complimentary snacks and drinks from a communal 'fridge. Wonderful!
All the staff were very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you Suzanne. The bedrooms were very clean and well equipped the beds were VERY comfortable.
A complimentary shuttle service is offered to the Mall of America and the Airport, but the drivers were more than happy to take us other places within the vicinity. Thank you Kevin and Travis.
We found the hotel excellent and very good value and will return there on our next trip.
If IKEA furnished a hotel
We booked this place based on the reviews and the fact that it was the cheapest hotel available. People were very friendly, and the place was obviously renovated recently...and they look like they furnished everything, from the lobby to the bar to the rooms in IKEA stuff. I guess that's appropriate because of the Scandanavian heritage of the area.
The heater in our room only blew out cold air, and the guy who came to fix it was unsuccessful, but they did not hesitate to give us another room when we asked.
Finally, we were impressed by the pool, especially compared to other hotel pools. It was big and properly heated.
Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Crowne Plaza Airport West (Oct 10 - 12, 2004). The sleek, contemporary design was very hip and fun, and the staff was quite welcoming and helpful. The wireless high speed internet access was a feature I used a few times while there (couldn't have been easier to use!), and the friendly lobby bar was a perfect last stop of the evening before retiring to the comfortable beds with the best pillows ever.
