Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JP46 reservation representative attitude
My first three days stay was good, it was the fourth request for a reservation that sent me over the edge.
When making phone reservations, directly with this hotel, I was asked if I would be driving and parking my car. When I replied 'yes', I was told there was a $10 parking fee in addition to my room.
I have stayed at this hotel several times in the recent past and NEVER have been told that I would be charged $10 for parking my car. Infact, I had stayed Monday, July 1, 2013, Wednesday, July 3, 2013, July 4, 2013 without being charged a parking fee. On July 5, 2013, #due to an emergency required another night stay# I requested a room and was told I would be charged a $10 parking fee. I was stunned. I related my very recent staysand not being charged a $10 parking fee and the hotel reservation male stated that it wasn't he that was charging me. #he took this personally#
If you are employed by a business, you then take the responsibility of representing that business....in a professional manner...whether you agree with their policies or not. If you are not going to represent that business, wholeheartedly, find another position in which you CAN represent a company professionally.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiN1963 Comfortable bed and friendly staff
The hotel was excellent except for the over an hour long wait for the hotel shuttle to come pick us up from the airport. We had flown from Scotland and so were very tired and it was a little upsetting. When the shuttle driver did arrive he told us he had just been told about our request for a ride and that the original request had been forgotten about. He was extremely friendly and apologetic as was the front desk supervisor. Except for some bottled water, no consideration was given. We had no such difficulties with the shuttle back to the airport but it was a good thing we pre-booked our time because the shuttle was full.

Absolutely the best breakfast ever .... of any hotel I've ever stayed at including other Holiday Inn Express. If you're visiting the Twin Cities I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express. The shuttle service to the mall to shop as well as catch the light rail to the Twins game was great. Not having to worry about driving and parking made our stay so much more enjoyable. I did miss the fresh baked cookies on check in but the other amenities made up for it. Thanks for making our weekend so enjoyable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HWBogey Room Ready
Had to wait in lobby for an hour for room to be ready. Would have thought a Platinum Member would have had preference on an open room. Had to work in lobby where contractors and project managers for upcoming rennovation where quite loud, making it hard to concentrate and work while waiting. This was between 3-4 PM.

Even though I arrived in the morning a room was made available to me immediately. I was in Minneapolis to attend my sister's funeral, and I was grateful the clerk was so accommodating.

Hotel was in a great location, and perfect for business and family trips. Was very surprised that they never even offered a bottle of water to a platinum member (and it wasnt a busy time)

Brought my grand daughter to Mall of America for her 16th birthday. We loved this hotel. We got in late as our flight had been cancelled twice. The woman on the front desk gave me banana's as nothing open. I was very tired and hungry. She really came through. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Also enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The shuttle service was very good. All the staff wonderful. I would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CBinOmaha Couple of hiccups
At midnight someone tried several times to enter our room. A few minutes later, I heard them actually enter the room across the hall. We saw them in the hall the next morning and they said the desk employee gave them the wrong room number. Bummer that we were woken up and freaked out for an employee error.
Also, the mattresses in our room had no edge/side support. When you laid down, you really felt like you were going to end up on the floor.

After a long day of traveling I arrived late. The next morning housekeeping next door was slamming something several times. After several requests to the housekeeper the noise only got louder. After a call to the front desk to request that the manager ask them to quiet down they started to vacuum, purposely hitting the baseboards with the vacuum over and over again. I was unable to sleep in and was exhausted to the rest of the day.
I doubt that I will return to this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by B2499 Good Hotel
Hotel was a nice one, breakfast buffet was very well run. Room has a temperature controller that is not a thermostat which makes getting the room temp comfortable a time consuming and annoying task. On arrival, IHG Club members get a bottle of water...wow, makes you feel so special and the maid threw it out so I couldn't drink it upon my return to the room after my going to my business meeting the next day. Overall, the hotel in in a good location and despite the fact that the hotel has no restaurant, the proximitely to the Mall of America give you some dining options.
I would stay here again on future trips, I'd just be sure to keep my water bottle with me instead of in the room refridgerator.

We stay at this hotel whenever we are in this area and overall have never had a bad experience except for our last stay. The breakfast bar is a wonderful option and the food is fine however we don't feel that at 10 minutes before the breakfast bar is to close that the staff need to be so rude and literally take the food right out from under those of us still in line. Again we understand closing time is closing time but if it is 10:00 then stick to 10:00 not 9:50. Hard to explain to a two year old why they can't have the cereal they were just pointing at. Otherwise nice place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jgoon13 Perfect for what we needed
We used this hotel simply because it was close to airport. However, the 24 hour shuttle service was a surprise and much needed as we did not get into airport till very late at night. The shuttle was there to pick us up in less than 10 min. So great!!! The rooms were very big and comfy. Would definitely stay again!!! A++++++

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LAX86 Weekend Away
My girlfriend and I decided to take a trip to Minneapolis/St. Paul for a weekend away. We stayed at this Holiday Inn for two nights. The rooms were kept very clean and neat. The staff did a great job cleaning up the room between the first and second night also. The breakfast each day was great. They offered several choices of items to eat and the food was hot and fresh both times. The front desk staff was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for places to go while in town. The hotel also offered a free shuttle to the Mall of America each hour. The shuttle was very nice and helpful to avoid parking headaches. I would stay at this Holiday Inn again for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4BNBAD Not too exciting, but just what I need.
The experience at this property is not mind-blowing. However, the dozen or so times I've stayed here have been hassle-free. Attentive staff, easy-access to MSP, shuttles when you need them and the complements I've come to expect from HIExpress. No, not memorable, but that's the way I like it- very good every time I stay there. Highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Visit2Mayo Had to wait for transport
The airport shuttle does not cycle through the airport on regular basis. As I did not have a mobile phone I could not call the hotel. Ended up having to take a taxis after waiting for 45 minutes.

Very impressed with the hotel, even though it was spring break and there were tons of people once you left the crazy pool area you could not hear any sounds in our room. Breakfast was amazing, super close to the Mall of America, shuttle service was excellent. Huge fridge in the room. I would stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MSchulz Don't always get what you want.
Very noise til very late at night making it difficult for our 5 year old to get to sleep.
Disappointed at check in because price was misstated when we booked....confusion over parking our vehicle for the week while we went on vacation.
After calling the hotel to let them know we needed shuttle service back to our car...we were told a 15 minute wait, but waited 45 minutes before realizing they weren't going to show. Called hotel, after much confusion on their part...they asked us to take a taxi back and they would reimburse us.
Not sure I'd reccomend this HIE to anyone..... other properties..yes

We stay there the night before our early morning flight and the shuttle to the airport was great. Breakfest didn't open until 6 am
but we were able to get something before our bus to the airport which left at 6 am. The flight was a late flight which got in at airport at 11:50 pm and call for the shuttle and was there within 15 min.
