... Dinner consisted of the crazy-fun Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. with Jodi, Briggs, Kyle and myself. Afterwards we walked around the mall (I just HAD to see the Apple store across from the Microsoft). I felt accomplished once I rode a roller coaster! The four of us rode the SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge. It was a quick ride but tons of ...

Day 14 - Leaving Washington State for Minneapolis

... that he will not resurface. Time to get out!!! Back in the room, we order room service and put on the TV. Andy manages to stay awake quite a while but at 9 pm (3 am UK time ) he flakes out. First impressions of Minneapolis are an industrial but clean and affluent city. People are much more formally dressed than in the relaxed West. Not sure Ethan's affiliation to bright green crocs will cut it ...

... is to avoid leaving unwanted cars in their country. So this process takes a while, but they have a smooth system where everything can be done in two buildings with only two people. We ended up with a fancy sticker to put in our car that had a bar code on it. When we were stopped by police (which happened everyday), they did not want to see our Guatemalan paperwork of ownership. They wanted to see the Mexican paperwork. It was a clear system.

Today is the store’s last day of business for the season. When we arrive, the clerk is already starting inventory. We return our unused shower tokens for a refund. I buy an orange juice and Julie a PowerAde. There’s a bear of a fellow stocking up on ramen and PopTarts. He’s concerned about the weather. A gale advisory has been issued ...

For the most critical entry on this destination you can read Alison's entry below.

For me you have to understand it is a guy thing. I walk into a "mall" or other shopping establishment and unless I am on the hunt for something specific the eyes start to glaze over and I go into a catatonic state.

We got to Bloomington ahead of schedule (see previous entry for the reason) and were able to get checked in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Minneapolis Airport Bloomington

    Great hotel!

    from

    This hotel was a wonderful place to stay after a long day of shopping at the mall of america. We got to the hotel just in time for the welcome open bar in the atrium. This was a great treat as we all wanted to unwind! The hotel atrium was beautiful, this is also where they served the breakfast buffet. The buffet was also great- so much to chose from. Finding a table was a little tough, but mostly because there were 5 of us. We also relaxed in the hot tub and swimming pool- both very nice, not too packed. The swimming pool seemed like it was salt water though. It didn't hinder us from swimming in it though- kind of like swimming in the ocean without the grit, sand, and seaweed! Overall, great stay!

    They treat you like royalty!

    from

    During the week we were supposed to be in Italy we had to go to Minnesota for a funeral. The last two nights of our stay we stayed at the Embassy Suites in Minneapolis by the airport. After sharing our story with James at the front desk, he made sure our stay was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were just great. Large and beautifully done. They would also work for business meetings because of the separate living room area/dining room area and bar area. Also the complimentary breakfast isn't just cold cereal and yogurt. They have two chefs that makes you pancakes, eggs and omelets and sausages and bacon. We travel a lot and it was the best breakfast buffet we have encountered. They have a huge room service menu. There are several choices of restaurants and bars. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. There was a pool and all that other stuff, but we didn't use that. It is located a half mile from the airport and not much farther from the Mall of Americas. We highly recommend staying here. It was great!

    Embassy Suites Minneapolis Airport Rocks!

    from

    Spent 3 nights at the Embassy Suites Airport, Minnapolis/Bloomington, and what a great experience it was!! Check in was smooth. WHen i got in the room i realized the room i had was above the pool, and had no balcony, so i called down and requested a different room, and they were very accomadating to do so with a smile! The gift shop had just what i needed to fix an emergency broken nail, nice selection of everything. THe location was wonderful...it was very easy to find. Amazingly quiet for as busy as it was, and for being next to the airport. The pool area and atrium were beautiful, clean, and well kept. The managers reception and breakfast were second to none. Rooms were clean and comfortable. ( wish the bathroom door was across from the bar rather than in the master bedroom though) The shuttle drivers rocked! Very friendly and accomadating! Saved me alot of headache to not have to find my way around the Mall of America Parking lot and tthe airport parking ramp...dropped right off at the door! Can't beat that! And it's free! THe rate we paid was excellent for what we all got! All employees were very friendly. The only 2 downfalls....night 2 of our stay, the hot tub was not working properly, it was freezing cold! And also a wedding took place in the atrium on Saturday afternoon therefore the lobby area and atrium were crawling with people for the wedding and make it unusable and unenjoyable to other paying hotel guests for several hours that day. THe elevator can get a bit congested at times, so i suggest requesting a lower floor room and taking the steps on the weekends. Overall i give it 5 stars though.

    A Great Weekend!!

    from

    We just had two wonderful nights at the Minneapolis Airport Embassy Suites. From the moment we walked in, our experience couldn't have been better. Great staff. The Atrium was enchanting with it's tropical garden atmosphere. The room was perfect with the best motel bed that I have ever slept on. Even the pull-out couch where my kids slept was comfortable. They had one of the best buffet breakfasts that I have ever had. We will definitely plan to stay there again.

    Not your typical embassy suites

    from

    We have stayed a many Embassy Suites before, so we figured this one would be no different. We were there for Easter weekend when the weather was in the high 40's. Even though the hotel site advertises air conditioning, this is not the case. We were told to turn on the fan in our room and open the door to the balcony. Not exactly the safest way to sleep! We were miserable! It was about 80 degrees in the room as the sun bakes through the window all day. My son has allergies and asthma and could hardly breathe from the heat and perhaps mold or mildew in the room. The beds were hard with some of the cheapest sheets which were too small for the bed. The bathroom was old and in disrepair. Since we were so uncomfortable in our room we decided to use the indoor pool (a treat for my kids in the middle of winter) only to be told it would be out of service for most of the weekend! I will think twice the next time I stay at an Embassy Suites. The free breakfast did nothing to make up for the many nights of no sleep. THe hotel also needs to inform people that there is in fact, NO AIR CONDITIONING!

    Not your typical Embassy Suites

    from

    Returned yesterday (Thanksgiving day) from spending 3 nights at the Embassy Hotel. I was very disapointed. Hotel needs lots of upgrades starting with the mattress on the beds. The hotel apparently only has heat or air but you can't have both. When we were there our room was very hot but we were told the hotel is only on heat for the cold months, so we were told just to open the balcony door. Well we didn't want to sleep with the door open all night so the room stayed very uncomfortable. One of the two elevators was broken in the foyer so getting to and from our room was very time consuming. Phone also in our room didn't work and the 1st room they put us in smelled with heavy smoke even though we requested a non smoking room. The first night we ordered room service and the food was awful and very expensive. Entire experience was not what I am use to at an Embassy suites. Definetly overpriced.

    Nice hotel but room for improvement

    from

    Family of 5 stayed here in July 2004 as part of a cross-country trip. This hotel is about 1 mile from the Mall of America and right next door to the aiport. There is a shuttle to the Mall of America that leaves from the hotel each hour. Noise from the airport and the nearby road construction was noticeable in the rooms, but certainly bearable. I had a reservation (made online) for two rooms at $139.99 each. When the clerk handed me the registration form, I looked for the room rate (which was not pointed out or highlighted) and found it to be $179.99 each. The rate was corrected to match my reservation, although no apology for the mix-up was offered. The clerk then handed me the keys for two rooms, one on the 4th floor and one on the 6th floor. (Mind you: I reserved the two rooms at the same time and in the same name.) When I asked if my family could have two rooms near each other, I was given two rooms on the same floor but on opposite ends of the hotel. Since we were checking in at 5:00 p.m. on a Monday, I found it hard to believe there were no two rooms closer to each other in the whole hotel, but that's what the clerk said. This is one of the largest Embassy Suites I've stayed at. One elevator was out of service the whole time, another stopped at every floor no matter what buttons were pushed. The atrium is nicely landscaped, but would have been a lot nicer if the waterfall/fountain was working. (Judging from the debris in the empty foountain, it had been a while since it was working.) The breakfast area is larger and has the food stations more spread out than at most Embassy Suites, which helped to accomodate the crowd. All in all, this Embassy Suites has the potential to be a top-notch hotel, but needs to work on its customer service and building maintenance before it gives the chain a bad name.

    Loved it!

    from

    We stayed here on our wedding night after we booked last minute...when we realized we had organized everything to do with the wedding except the hotel to stay in before we flew out of Minneapolis airport the following day! Booking last minute the rates were inflated but I was not dissapointed.

    This hotel is just gorgeous. It's built around an inner courtyard lined with palm trees and a bubbling stream! The rooms surround this so when you walk out your door you look down into this jungle of oasis with glass elevators travelling up and down the walls. The courtyard is where they serve breakfast which was a fantastic buffet serving everything you can imagine. The friendly bar served excellant food and drinks. We didn't go to the more formal restaurant but it looked very nice. All the employees were incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed on the executive floor in a one bedroom suite which was clean and comfortable. We will definatly stay here again.

    Needs Some TLC

    from

    This hotel has all of the best parts about staying at an Embassy Suites (larger room, free breakfast and cocktail hour) but is in need of some updating. The sofa in our room had torn cushions and the beds were comparable to staying at a cabin at the lake (a bit mushy). Let's not even mention the 80's style tacky decor. On the plus side, it is a very short drive to the Mall of America and is surprisingly quiet for a hotel right along the highway by the airport. With a little TLC this could be a gem.

    We loved the Embassy!!!

    from

    We have been to this location twice in one year. Once in Feb and once in August. We enjoyed it enough the first time to return. They make your stay very comfortable. They have an awesome complimentary managers reception each night from 5-7pm. Show your room key for snacks and beverages. Alcoholic and/or non alcoholic. They have a steak house type restuarant on site as well as a bar. The pool area is nice. The atrium is cool and the structure being built around the atrium is a nice touch. Remember that heat rises and the heat is still on in early spring. We requested the top floor and found it humid in february, it was a nice warm day. The complimentary breakfast is awesome. All you can eat, full menu, and made to order items. Never left hungry. They have many complimentary items, plus a gift shop for the forgotten items. The price is right for weekend getaways with friends. Rooms are nice, clean and spacious. They have scheduled shuttles to the Mall of America, couple blocks away. Definitely told all our friends to stay there. Enjoy!
