The Westin Minneapolis
Travel Blogs from Minneapolis
Arrived in Minneappolis - a very cool 1 degree. Had some time out with a few of the team and we went to the Mall of America.
This place is crazy - America's biggest shopping mall complete with a Theme Park and Aquarium inside.
Lasted 1 1/2 hours as we were so tired we just couldnt handle the walking and the noise but it was …
... 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 ...
... just could wait to take off! While in the air I read the Walmart magazine, and the two airplane magazines lol, and Paul snoozed. Random fact, while on an airplane or in the airport you can purchase small items like headphones, power adapters, etc. (that's normal) but now you can also purchase stuff like beds, or couches. That is so bizarre. Anywho, once in Minneapolis, we got off the plane, said our goodbyes to Shannon and Tracy and walked to the complete opposite corner ...

However, before I got back to the hotel I found the Guthrie Theater – a much-awarded regional theater based in Minneapolis. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Minneapolis
Best Hotel in Minneapolis
Brand new hotel in downtown Minneapolis (though the city is literally empty on the weekends). Really nice modern rooms, great flat screen tv, and of course, an amazing Westin Heavenly bed. The service was really lousy, though it is a new property and most new properties have some growing pains. BANK restaurant is quite good. This is for sure the place to stay if you happen to be in Minneapolis
I am a Starwood Platinum member so I've been to plenty of Westins. On the surface, a nice hotel-- standard westin rooms, very solid workout room with free gatorade drinks available to those who work out. However, this hotel was severely lacking in the details, particularly service. First off, there were a few towels with toothpaste stains on them when I arrived. Not good.
Ich bin ein Starwood Platinum-Mitglied und war in vielen Westins. Oberflächlich betrachtet ist dies ein nettes Hotel, Standard-Westin-Zimmer, guter Fitness-Raum mit kostenlosen Sportgetränken für diejenigen, die die Geräte benutzen. In diesem Hotel wird jedoch kein Wert auf Details gelegt, insbesondere nicht auf den Service. Erstens hatten einige Handtücher Zahnpastaflecken. Nicht gut.
We just spent 4 nights at the new Westin Minneapolis. We also brought
Wir haben vier Nächte in dem neuen Westin Minneapolis gewohnt. Wir haben unseren kleinen Hund auf diese kombinierte Geschäfts-/Erholungsreise mitgebracht. Uns hat fast alles im Hotel gefallen und wir würden wieder hier wohnen.
Schönes Hotel - Personal ein bisschen unbedarft
Ich habe an einem langen Feiertagswochenende im Westin Minneapolis gewohnt. Tolles Hotel in Superlage
Die Zimmer sind wirklich schön, die übliche Westin-Qualität. Ausgezeichnete Betten und wunderschöne Bäder.
Das Personal ist nett und angenehm, aber ein bisschen unbedarft. Sie schauten einen manchmal ein bisschen erstaunt an. Ich weiß nicht, ob das damit zu tun hat, weil das Hotel neu ist. Ich würde vorschlagen, dass das Management Schnellkurse in punkto Kundendienst und Umgang mit Kunden hält.
Die Lobby ist schön - eine renovierte Schalterhalle einer Bank aus den 1940er Jahren. Bar und Restaurant waren gut. Ich würde wieder hier wohnen!
Beautiful Hotel - Staff a bit clueless
Just stayed at the Westin Minneapolis over the long Memorial Day weekend. Great hotel and location. The rooms are great, standard Westin quality. Great heavenly beds and heavenly bathrooms. Staff is nice and pleasant but a bit clueless. Frequently had that deer in headlights look. Don't know if this is because the hotel is so new or what. Would recommend that management hold crash courses in customer service skills and customer interaction. The lobby is beautiful - a restored 1940's bank lobby. The bar and restaurant were good. Would stay here again.
Minneapolis has just gotten it's latest upscale hotel property in the form of the new Westin hotel, that opened up this week on the former site of an old bank. I went with a friend in early May initially to grab drinks and check out the restaurant. We spontaneously decided to check into a room for the night to savor the whole experience of the hotel. We got a $299 room rate as walk ins - after checking, we found this rate was also available as the "internet" rate.
