Friendly and comfortable A review of Crowne Plaza Hotel Minneapolis - Airport West Bloomington
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.
If I ever return, I won't be requesting a poolside room. The noise starts too early for me in the pool area, which is adjacent to the workout room. That means people are coming and going from the area quite early (before 6AM!). The Sony Dream machine helped me get to my meeting the first morning on time (after spending a few minutes to figure out how to program it the night before). I made my way to the workout room by 9:00 on the second morning and the equipment was fairly new and in good condition.
I chose it because it was newly remodeled and looked clean and elegant, offered high speed internet access, was in a good location for us and offered competitive rates. The location was perfect for our stay. We had a meeting in North Mankato, and also wanted to be near the airport and the Mall of America, so it was easy access for both. Easy to find from the airport, and very close to restaurants and shopping. I definitely recommend the hotel.
