Great Expectations...Met, and then Some A review of Radisson Plaza Hotel Minneapolis
After already being rated 2nd most popular in the Minneapolis area by contibutors to this site, I'm clearly not the first person to rave about his/her experience. Nevertheless, I'll add my voice to the chorus of praise...
Room: Immaculately clean - room itself, bathroom, closets, drawers, etc.; plenty of towels and washcloths, better placed than in other hotels (like towels on a rack in the bath/shower itself); unbelievably comfortable bed and pillows.
Nice, Small Touches: Comfortable robe; (2) free bottles of water, replaced each day; Alarm Clock w/CD Player; shoe shine/buffing cloth.
Restaurant: "Firelake" is excellent...true quality for a in-hotel dining option. Only did breakfast/brunch there Sat. and Sun., but I can vouch for the omlettes and especially for the pancakes (flapjacks with blueberries and 100% pure maple syrup...mmmm). Service was hands-on (without being overly in-your-face), all special requests were accomodated (substitutions and side-orders), water and coffee were refilled quickly, a newspaper was offered, details about airport shuttles and taxis was prompt and accurate, and the price was quite reasonable. Ask for Nick or Katie...both VERY nice.
Parking: Plentiful, with early bird and especially evening specials that are great for visiting guests.
Overall Price/Value: Excellent
