Very nice hotel. We stayed two nights after a train trip and visited
the Mall of America that the Holiday Inn Express has a shuttle to it.
My wife had never been there before.
Very helpful front desk person, Michelle, I believe, assisted me in getting my computer to work correctly. She even hooked me up with the 800 number service that solved the problem. It was a complicated fix.
Also, we switched rooms after the first night and I left my IPad in
Miss Cruz turned it in to the front desk and I retrieved it later in the day. Great staff!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larry37 Service Fair, Maintenance terrible
I have used this facility many times. This time I needed to use the shuttle from the airport. I called (no phone number shown at the airport hotel display board) and was told 15 minutes. Driver arrived, we waited another 10 minutes for another couple, got halfway to the hotel and he was told to turn around and go back for another. Finally after 50 minutes wasted, we got back to the hotel and he let off the other first, since they had "parked their cars there" but were not staying there. As a guest I was the last one left at the door.
The flapper valve in the toilet was leaking and every 30 seconds it would refill the tank. I advised the front desk the next morning, and the morning after that, and the one after that, and the morning of my checkout. Was told they had NO inventory of spare parts for maintenance. This wasted thousands of gallons of water and was annoying for all 4 days. Terrible situation, and resource inconsiderate. Shame.

Very nice place to stay. It was quiet, comfortable and the staff was very good to us. It was a very stressful trip for us and we got plenty of rest in the quiet room. It is also located close to hospitals and everything. Plenty to do!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vac2013ation Expensive and Hot
The price quoted when we checked it, was not what was on my bill. It went up 50% without my approval. I will give the staff credit, the corrected the bill without question.
The room itself was okay, but even with the AC on full blast, the room would not get cooled down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wildstar Very happy with everything.
Lets start with affordable.
We stayed for three days, and every day our room was made to look like the first with fresh sheets and towels.
We had a microwave and a refrigerator, and best of all, down at the service desk there was a store that sold TV dinners and other things so that you did not have to go out if you did not want to.
The beds were super comfortable.
They had a shuttle that ran every hr to the mall of america and to the airport. We did not even have to drive or pay for parking. It was very awesome..
My daughter loved the pool, me and my wife loved the whirlpool.
The pool was not the biggest, but we realized quickly that it was a god send, because it made it easy to keep an eye on our daughter.
The shower was great, super clean with nice water pressure and a never ending supply of hot water.
Breakfast was awesome... top notch!!! Excellent Everything... and lots of it.
All of the staff were very polite.
There were three elevators, so no waiting. That was nice.
The lobby has dark rich woodwork that screams beautiful. I Loved looking at all of the woodwork as dumb as that may sound.
We were on the fifth floor and enjoyed the views of the city.
The room has its own heat and air controls that were very easy to control.
Lets just say that we will be staying there again. I'm a big fan of Clean.. and everywhere I went in this place was very clean and that made me comfortable...

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.

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.

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++++++

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.
