A small pool of hydraulic fluid appeared and then began to
grow beneath the big blue port side engine of our Airbus A320(SR). A mechanic
came. Our departure time came. And went.
From my window seat in row seven overlooking the leaking
engine, I watched as first the left engine cowling was propped up and then the
The trip down was uneventful. Garmina, as we have named the Garmin GPS unit that we have, was able to provide up to date directions to the Sheraton. Thank goodness for Priceline, I was able to find a room for a decent price. Putting us in a $150/night room for $50. Nice. The night was short, but that was part of the plan. Stay up as …
Went with my 2 daughters and wife to Minneapolis for a one day trip to Mall of America. The Mall was big and crowded and parking was a joke. My daughters and I bought wristbands so we could go on rides in the Camp Snoopy area all day. They have a roller coaster and water ride and many other fun kid rides. We stayed at the Sheraton in Bloomington …
Today was a pretty interesting day. I spent the morning driving around the cities giving away my "good stuff" as fast as I could. I said my good byes to some awesome people I'd met in my time in Eden Prairie, as well as a couple of old friends from back ...
... Frederick Mall and super-size it, then put a bunch of of them in one building. The picture of the characters are the Wonder Pets (Danielle!!!!!!!) It was crazy! It was so much fun! Can't wait for the next stop!
It was cool to see the amusement park and aquarium inside a mall. I am a shopper but this was too much for even me. Jan, I'm sure your mother and sister could wear you out at this one.

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Bloomington - Minneapolis South
This hotel was very nicely decorated. The exterior archtecture is bland but inside it is very nicely decorated. The rooms were very nice and very well cleaned. The cleaning staff even folded my wifes blanket and made it part of the decor of the room and used my daughters teddy bear as part of the decoration.
Very high quality
This was a very nice Sheraton property. Rooms are clean, and equipped with their Sweet Sleeper beds. In addition to all the normal room comforts, they also provided a newspaper in the morning. Hotel is very conveniently located near Highways 100 and 494, making getting around quite easy. Parking is plentiful and free.
I was able to book this hotel via Priceline for $62 on a weekend. Check-in and check-out were a breeze.
A solid choice
Stayed at the Sheraton for a quick visit to see friends in south suburbs. While there is nothing spectacular, it is a very nice hotel, decent sized room, comfortable bed and a convenient location at Minnesota 100 / I-494 interchange. Have shuttle buses to MSP and the Mall of America. Bought room on Priceline, but even normal prices (Starwood website) are very reasonable. Very courteous staff.
If you going to be in the south/southwest suburbs of Minneapolis, this is a good choice.
Nice place, good location, decent place to stay
Rooms were clean. Hotel was very busy but they seemed to keep the place up good. Nice location for the soutwest area of the twin cities. Also, I got this on priceline for $35.
When we walked in the lobby was beautiful! Our room was clean and good for the price. The pool was big and went up to 9 feet. The beds were very comfortable. The resturant had great food. I can't wait to come back!
TIP: The gift shop did not have a lot of soveaneirs I would advise for you to go to the mall.
Booked the Sheraton for a Saturday night through Priceline for only $35 plus tax ($44). I was a little concerned because their web site said they had contruction going on and I was afraid I would be stuck in some rundown part of the motel for the price I paid. I was pleasantly surprised. The motel itself is a little older, but the room was nicely decorated with VERY comfortable beds. We stayed on the 16th floor and had an excellent view. The pool area was very nice and the hotel staff was friendly; it also is conveniently located about 5 miles from the Mall of America.
Great Suburban Location
Hotel's location is a good compromise between the downtown/uptown, Mall of America and Valley Fair. The public spaces are grand and inviting and the pool area is large and clean; they could both use some updating. Hotel host many large groups and conventions. Rooms are well serviced and have expected amenities. The beds are very comfortable. The limited number of staff were not very impressive ie. desk clerk questioned my request for a receipt upon checkout. Although nothing about this hotel was exceptional, I would stay here again; but prefer the service at the Sofitel down the street.
Mediocre at Best
A ghastly architectural pile brimming with guests on tight budgets.
This is a fine place to stay if the entire family is on a cross country car ride and simply needs to a place to sleep and bathe, but not a place to spend more than one evening or for the business executive.
Phony staff pretending to care about your stay and a restaurant to rival Calcutta's finest soup kitchens await you. An unpleasant aroma filled every corner of the building. Go downtown for a better experience.
Have stayed here a number of times. Has the most comfortable beds in Minneapolis, plus the restaurant is great!
Great place to stay!
hotel was very nice. great service. would stay there again.
