El primer dia fuimos al beisbol a ver a los mellizos, juego con 7 Home Runs, 10a victoria consecutiva de los mellizos, cena de poca en el centro de minneapolis, el torneo de golf estuvo medio gacho por que Lorena Ochoa estuvo muy mal. Nos toco ver el eagle de Annika en el 18 el último día, me acompañaron Julio César Alcázar y Jorge Micelli.

So for the past few weeks I have been craving a hearty, meaty, juicy burger. Any of my friends who have been around me lately can probably attest to this. Well, I'm happy to announce that my cravings have been satisfied. This past weekend I had a huge burger (which was no smaller than the circumference of my face) paired with crunchy fries to top it off. Where did I have this burger? Oh you know, just a typical Mexican restaurant. The irony of having my last ...

But Joe and I still had to keep going to Minneapolis. We put all of our things in his old Ford truck called Mazy. So from Santa Fe, through Colorado, and across the plains to Minnesota we drove in Mazy. Mazy is a red truck, but she is different. She has air, heat, adjustable seats, untinted windows, 4 wheel drive, and is newer. She is much better suited to living through winter in the north.

We spent a month ...

Isle Royale to Minneapolis

This is a top pick!

Day 9: approximately 325 miles

I'm woken at 5:40 am by laughter. The people in shelter eight apparently think that the end of Quiet Hours means the beginning of Loud Hours. The sky is still dark. I try to go back to sleep while my neighbors continue to laugh, joke, and converse at the tops of their lungs. I am not successful.

At 6:15, I hear something stomping around next to the cabin. I wonder if it is a moose. No such luck. A fat guy and his girlfriend ...

friendship blooms, sparkles, charges through bonds
a place of connections, a healing of songs
memories forever, thoughts, sights to behold
a painting evolving, a place always unfolding

love overcomes, fills all with desire
a place of great warmth, encompasses all other

    Would Not Reccomend!


    My friend and I have just returned from a trip to the Sofitel Minneapolis (February 20th-22nd). For months we had planned our "Girl's Shop Till You Drop" getaway and thought we had picked the perfect "4 star" hotel. The word disappointed does not even begin to describe how we felt! Here's what we didn't like:

    Great Value!!!


    We stayed at the Sofitel the weekend of November 12-14 2004. We were pleasantly surprised at the great value of this property. For a very resonable rate we were given a comfortable room with many ammenities. Although this room had not yet been remodled it still contained all the main features of the other rooms. The feather bed was so comfortable I could have slept all day. Bathrobes, premium toiletries and Evian water with turndown service were nice touches. The carpeting and furniture could use updating, but the cleanliness made up for that. We spoke with other guests that were in remodled rooms and they told us they were beautiful. The lobby is nicely decorated. The staff was very cordial. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.



    My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel July 9-10. We payed through the 11th but left a night early. The rooms in the hotel were OK - I wouldn't classify them as 4 star. We wouldn't know how the restraurant "La Fougasse" is because we couldn't get served. We sat for 30 minutes without anyone acknowledging our presence so we got up and left. The restraurant was not busy when we were there. The waitress that we saw walk past us several times was only serving 2 or 3 tables. The Sofitel is definatley not worth the money.

    Good hotel, not new, but comfortable


    Terrific beds... like sleeping in feathers. The property is the first Sofitel in the US, so it's old... but they do what they can to keep it fresh and modern. You can tell that it's an old place, though.



    Stayed here April 2004 and the stay was excellent. It is a nice, quiet location. The thing I liked the best about this hotel was the beds...absolutely to die for. It was so comfortable down comforters, down feather bed, down pillows. Room and bathroom were very clean. I would recommend it.

    GIve it a pass


    Unlike other reviewers, I found this hotel to be very disappointing. I think of Sofitel as being distinctly French, but there was little in this hotel to distinguish it from any other chain hotel other than a sad little gift shop and a bakery that was completely hidden behind a corner. My room was ordinary and badly in need of a good update. Food was also ordinary. My biggest complaint is that the hotel wasn't FRENCH. The bistro menu was watered down for Minneapolis tastes - to the point where the menu labelled a California sparkling wine as "champagne". Breakfast wasn't the european-style offering I was hoping for but pretty run of the mill American basics. In a word - just another chain hotel and nothing like other Sofitels.

    Simply Amazing!


    My recent stay at this beautiful hotel was simply incredible. From the moment you walk into the hotel you are welcomed by the most genuine and informed staff that I have ever encountered in the hotel industry. Not only was the staff just attentive they exceed my expectations at every opportunity. You also must dine at both of the restraurants at the hotel. It was a true pleasure. This is my only choice in the Twin Cities.

    Great Getaway!


    We had a deluxe room; king bed, large sitting area, double sinks. Got the best price from the hotel's website. We ate in both restaurants and enjoyed both. Very fancy, not really suitable for kids, as there isn't a pool or game room. We only saw one child during our stay. Since we didn't have our children along we did enjoy having an almost "adults only" atmoshpere. We'd definitely stay here again!

    Very Pleased


    I stayed in the Sofitel and was very happy with it.

    The hotel lobby was very fancy and the desk was very helpful. The room was above average in size and had a lot of nice amenties. There were a lot of nice tolietries in the room, even had a mini sewing kit. They also turned down my bed at night and tidied up my room.

    The colors inside the room needed to be updated but I was very happy with it anyway.

    Not to be Trusted


    I made reservations for the Hotel Sofitel in Minneapolis in June of 2002 for 10/16-10/19/2002. The hotel sent me a notice on 10/7/02 saying that of this date I would be unable to change my reservation.

    On 10/14 we received a phone call from the Sofitel telling us that they could no longer accomodate us and that they could get us reservations at the Embassy Suites or at the Holiday Inn. Which did we want?

    The latest of the notication left us with the choices of hotels/motels that the Sofitel gave us. I have never had this problems with any other hotel/motel.

    You can draw your own conclusion about whether or not to stay at a Sofitel.
