DoubleTree Park Place Hotel, Minniapolis provided a very nice stay while I was visiting. It is across the street from The West End Plaza with great restaurants and shops, as well as close to major highways. Staff was friendly and pleasing, environment was welcoming. I have already made my second reservation here for the end of the year. Very good experience overall.
We stayed here for four nights with a toddler. The room was surprisingly baby friendly and we didn't have to do much to make it pretty baby-safe. The room was really clean and the dishwasher made washing baby stuff so much easier. Having the kitchenette in the room was awesome for cutting up fruit, toasting bagels for breakfast, and we even ate dinner there once using the oven to cook a frozen pizza. My husband loved the full size coffee maker. The closet was quite large so we could put things we didn't want the baby to get into in there. Could have laid 2 medium rolling suitcases flat no problem.
Food and food amenities: The kitchen was a bit dated, and the breakfast was cereal, yogurt, fruit, and packaged breakfast muffins/bars. They did keep hot coffee, decaf, and water for tea or cocoa 24 hours a day by the front desk which was super convenient.
We will definitely stay here if we visit MN again.
As usual, my accommodations were exactly as I expected; friendly service and a clean room. The front desk associate, understanding I was on a business trip, ensured I was placed in a room as far away from any noise and lobby activity. I wondered if a note was placed on my account from a previous stay where I had asked to be moved to a room as far away from any noise as possible. At that time, I had been awake for 24 hours and was a bit cranky. Either way, Springhill Marriott's are never a disappointment. I appreciate the consistency with regards to the room layouts, breakfast, and upbeat hotel staff. This hotel was across the street from TGI Fridays which was open very late. This was helpful as I did not have to travel far for a decent cocktail and a bite to eat. I would highly recommend this hotel to for business or vacation travel. Bonus - Jacuzzi spa in my room, separate bathtub/shower, workout room and indoor pool.
