We had a great time The kids loved the water park We all loved the bowling

My granddaughter enjoyed all the dance parties They also did the ropes course and the rock Climbing It’s very expensive though If you don’t mind spending the money you’ll definitely have a good The room was nice but the a/c was very loud The breakfast buffet was very good and reasonable

Bella Linda

So much fun here!!! I highly recommend this resort Family friendly!!! I’ve gone to family resorts and the people working aren’t family friendly This resort definitely provided great customer service

The water park is so much fun! Our day passed by so fastI saw some reviews and I was slightly nervous, but I have to say this place was wonderful!

Jordan P.

We went up to the hotel for a midweek getaway and everything worked out nicely We were easily able to check in Our room was ready to go and clean

A couple knocks I have with the rooms are that there are no freezers in the fridges and the window shades get pretty bright when that summer sunrise rolls in early Breakfast is not included but if you fit the bill, it’s a nice buffet to start the day The water park was a lot of fun with very good lifeguards Because it was the middle of the week, it didn’t seem too packed in regards to people Everything in the pool seemed clean Overall, it was a fun stay and I would recommend it to others!

Thoroughly enjoyed my 3 week stay here The front desk and restaurant/bar staff were very friendly and always helpful Small menu but very good; enjoyed everything except the meatballs

Room was extremely clean and very well laid out And a plus, it’s right next to the Hazelwood restaurant This hotel will for sure be my go to spot, every time in I’m the SMinnie/Bloomington area

April Johnson

Tracy was one of the front desk employees and she was excellent My husband and I were here for the weekend, we asked for a restaurant recommendation and Tracy kept looking until she found us a place that did not disappoint We truly appreciated her going the extra mile for us

The room was clean and modern, the housekeeping staff was friendly and responsive to direct requests This rating would have been a 5, but surface parking was very limited

Andrew Boyce

As a weekly business traveler, I’m pickyThis hotel was excellent for the price I paid I had a nice one bedroom suite on the 5th floor

524 Good location!I will say that the airplanes are a little loud I stay in airport hotels all the time The windows aren’t soundproofed here like a lot of other airport hotels

Adam Binder

Starting with the positives, check in was easy, staff was helpful, pool was nice and room was large Now for the areas of improvement We arrived and the TV did not work

We called the desk and they came and fixed it The room smelled like smoke The shower had a slow drain and took about 10 min to drain after a shower The pull out bed was worthless as springs were easily felt through the mattress Every time the AC kicked in, the unit was so loud in the bedroom that it was difficult to sleep The breakfast in the morning left a lot to be desired Ham and potatoes No eggs or pancakes Milk dispenser didn’t work Juice was out of order Just disappointing If you are doing a quick stay it is OK, if I had to do it over I would make a different choice

Ashlyn Bentley

This was the best hotel I’ve stayed at for the price you pay My room was basically an apartment, with a kitchenette including stovetop, dishwasher, microwave & fridge with ice maker with its own bedroom The bathroom was a good size

They even included dove soaps instead of cheap like usual hotels The pool area was good & the pool was nicely warmed Breakfast had great options compared to other hotels I was very impressed When I got to my room, the front desk even sent a text to ask how the room was & if there was anything we needed

Kalyn J

We stayed here last night! The room was nice and spacious – we had a One Bedroom King Bed Suite Very affordable and friendly staff The pool and hot tub are open for use until 12am which is also great

Breakfast buffet in the morning as well! One cool thing about this room – I’m not sure about other rooms as well – is that the conditioner and shampoo are in actual pump bottles attached to the wall So instead of just having the mini bottles, you could use as much as needed! Will be coming back in the future !

Very nice luxurious feeling hotel The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have cool lights and a nice shower AC is great! Nice view of the runway too

It was great to not have to leave the airport and go outside to access the hotel Unfortunately the TSA check point was closed to get back to the terminal so we had to take the shuttle, but it was quick and easy and in a very nice luxury van

Corey Trusty

The hotel was absolutely great in taking care of us… we got in almost 3hrs later then we were supposed too… like 2:30am… and they absolutely took care of us… from the shuttle service, to our check in… the room was clean, very spacious and very quiet even to the outside noise being by the airport The attention to detail with the little things was really good such as the lighting in the bathroom, huge shower, massive counter space, the different colored towels and the soundproof windows The few things that were missing in my very humble opinion were more places to hang towels (there was only one peg to do that); places to hang your rag in the shower

There was no place to do that at all Other than that it was a really good experience, especially with the folks who worked the graveyard shift… thank you…


I love this airport hotel I have stayed here 3 times and I have even stayed in the suite It is always clean and easy to get to from the airport via the sky bridge walkway

It has great views of the airport and you can see St Paul and downtown Minneapolis from some of the roomsMy one complaint is that during the summer the lobby can be much to warm and humid The room does take a bit to cool off also

I had a great stay with family,including grandchildren under 4 The furniture in the suite was well made for family pizza time and I used the second TV in the suite area while children napped No oversized lounge chair

Bathtub/shower in the suite ,nice shower in the double room Friendly and smart staff Breakfast was okay Coffee mediocre There are no coffee shops or restaurants within walking distance not yet anyway

Esteban Rivera

Great place but the service was awful We got with my wife to the hotel around 1:30AM , my father in law reserved a room for 3 nights for us, the woman attending in the front desk KIM I believe was her name, at the check in gave us the answer (at 1:30 AM) “You have to call who did the reservation” , we told her that we were going to try but probably he wasn’t going to answer… He didn’t answer, 1:30AM… After I told her that she should give us the options of answer security questions like the address of the person who reserved the room She finally accepted that we should have the option to answer that question and we answered right but she still mentioned we needed to call him, and after it she said “You put him in the phone or you have to leave” Being super mean

By the end she told us we can stay but we will have to pay the night and tomorrow when we confirm the other person reserved for us we can refunded We tried to show her pictures, chat, stories, even our wedding planning in 2020 with the person who did the reservation and she still remained with the NO, at 1:30 AM First time I have a situation like this in Marriott Even I can understand her position, but her attitude was awfulPlease guys pick a different place to stay in MinneapolisAlso when we got to the hotel, a woman with 3 kids was facing the same situation than us and the response from Kim (woman attending the front desk) was “the name of the person who did de reservation has to match with the credit card you’re using here for the security deposit” without giving even the option to confirm by security questions of who reserved the room and also the lady that was trying to check in had the person who did the reservation in the phone… And she still say no with excuse of the credit card Absolutely contradictory with the scenario she created for my wife and ISo sad that a fantastic day had a scar of this type

Heather Green

The sound of the freeway is so loud That combined with the very lumpy beds that have zero lumbar support kind of ruined my entire trip They even moved me to a different room but it really wasn’t any better

I am really sad because it was my first time going to Minnesota and I spent a lot of money to come out here and I literally couldn’t even take myself out to dinner most of the nights because I was too tired from lack of sleepAlso my bedding was dirty in two rooms The staff was very nice though, but if you are not able to sleep through loud constant noise, it really doesn’t matter I would never stay at this particular hotel again I’m so bummed out that I picked this place when I could’ve picked any Marriott in the city… The only reason I chose to stay so far out of Minneapolis is because I thought it would be quieter I’m so exhausted and my back hurts so badly I’ve been sleeping sideways at the foot of the bed trying to find a firm spot on the mattress that gives some lumbar support, but tonight I’m going to try sleeping on the floor to see if it’s better I literally started trying to sleep at 5 PM tonight since I have not slept for the last three nights but I still can’t sleep through the sound of the traffic I’m so sad and it totally ruined my entire trip for the most part Beautiful place to visit but make sure you stay at a hotel you can actually sleep at and that has comfortable beds I have a feeling it’s gonna take at least a week for my back to recover I am so much pain… I’m sad and I just want to complain a lot, LOL

Andrew W

Had a great stay; staff was excellent, friendly and helpful Rooms were very nice and clean It’s great being able to get Starbucks at pretty much any time

The main hotel areas were very nice and well kept If I had anything to complain about at all it would be that I didn’t care for the pillows they use in the rooms, they weren’t comfortable for me

Glass Smith

Stay away, rude and mean staff!Hotel was a little “tired” as far as the facility but the real problem came with the hotel staff, it all started at check-in The guy checking me in was very short and a little snooty to say the least, not really anything specific just a little rude, not warm and welcoming at all The next issue came with the hotel bar where the bartender was very, very rude when my wife and I were ordering drinks

Lastly one morning when I was working in the lobby I was using a conference room to do some computer work done I went into this room because it was noisy in the lobby and I had some calls to make The door was unlocked and open all the way The sign on the door said conference and has no mention of being reserved or off-limits I left my laptop in this room to step out to the restroom When I returned the door was closed and locked with my computer inside I went to the desk to ask them to unlock the room and the woman immediacy began scolding me for using the room without permission I told her there was no sign on the door and it was wide open She continued to treat me like a child that had knowingly broken a rule Another lady at the front desk then got involved and walked me to the room At this point as she was unlocking the door she too began talking down to me like I was knowingly breaking some rule I explained to her if the room was reserved if off-limits they should have a sign or simply lock the door! She then said there is a sign, but she couldn’t show me on because there wasn’t one! Then she basically accused me of trying to steal my own computer! Stay away! Terrible hotel with terrible staff!!!


Great hotel got us in on short notice as our other hotel cancelled our reservationWe got a lm affordable room for one nightShuttle was very nice service

I would advise keeping an eye on the kids in the pool/spa/fitness areas as they were not always supervisedNot necessarily a hotel problem though

Five stars for amazing serviceWe were in town for a funeral and they went above and beyond to make sure our family had a smooth trip They found fun things for the kids, facilitated extra pool and family connection and every time we spoke with them, they were incredibly friendly and helpful

The rooms were good (comfy beds, good pillows, decent room renovations, and it looks like bathroom renovations are happening shortly too), the pool was great, loved that breakfast was included, but it was the people working here who made our experience so memorableThank you

meshia acree

Haven’t been here almost 3 years and boy has it changed As a Corporate hotel, you can see how COVID has affected the amenities and service of this establishment Cody and Mike were great! But with reduced staffing, restaurant limited hours of service (no breakfast which was a huge plus, no lunch and no room cleaning -unless you ask-) has significantly diminished the allure of this place

As this is a Corporate option, I MIGHT return but it’s doubtfulIf you are considering going, check ti see what services are available before you book Don’t rely on websites!

Joseph Hill

Staff is accommodating and facility is clean They have a operating pool and hot tub Morgan’s restaurant and bar is connected to the hotel has a great vibe and waiting staff

The pictures on the google map listing along with the gym do need to be updated badly

Tony Frei

Not sure why this has a 4+ star review The front staff are horribly rude and don’t trust each other to check you in properly The pool is set so cold that kids will freeze

They set it for Olympic pool temperatures where people are exercising (like 80 degrees) and then they have no sympathy when your kids are turning blue There’s no continental breakfast Overall, definitely NOT a premiere hotel Most regular best westerns are FAR better than this dump

C Piekarski

Pros: clean, new, sizable and comfortable Great little convenience store and plenty of pods and sociable areas to sit Checkout is 12 (great!) and was easy to push that back even further

High value for moneyCon: don’t get a room by an exit It’s a busy hotel so heavy foot traffic at exits and the doors aren’t insulated enough to mitigate the noise It kept me up all night Everything else was great

Hank Hultstrand

The first time i stayed here it was great Hospitality was awesome Place was clean amd inviting

The last time i stayed here everything felt a little off Room seemed less cared for We had reservations for two adults but towels and coffee for one Dirty glasses in the hallway for 3 days The same dirty glasses Great location if you need access to the western suburbs

Richard Brooks

The hotel was very clean, fresh, and modern looking (except the front desk… Personal opinion, but it didn’t mesh with the rest of the decor ) The restaurant served a decent breakfast, but they didn’t have anything along the lines of a continental breakfast beyond coffee

That was slightly disappointing The indoor pool and hot tub was baller, but I am not sure if our rooms were ever cleaned during our week stay

Stayed at hotel for honeymoon and it was perfect Amazing food delivered to the room from the restaurant, all staff were friendly and accommodating Everything was clean and loved the suite, the tub is large enough even my 6’5” hubby was able to comfortably relax and bathe

The common area was luxurious so it was nice to have a quiet meal in the room one night and play cards with a local friend Definitely want to go back! The rooftop bar was amazing as well!!

Emilie Christensen

I have stayed at Omni Viking Lakes a few times, and there are a some things that keep me coming back The hotel is beautiful! The Nordic Viking theme is just perfect, with subtle and tasteful nods to the Purple&Gold Vikings who’s training facility is just next door This hotel is high end while still being inviting and comfortable

Side note: If you are a MN Vikings fan, you just might end up having a drink and some great conversation with a player or coach ;)The rooms and spaces are exceptionally clean and well appointed The staff- from the front desk to the restaurant, and bar staff- have all been so kind, professional, and welcomingTheir loyalty program is so thoughtful! Sometimes a glass of champagne at check in, complimentary wine/beer at the lounges or restaurants, or complimentary coffee from the in-house Caribou Coffee branded shop are always so appreciated I recently also booked services at the spa and it was truly a luxury experienceSo, with all of the hotels to choose from in the area, I’ll continue to come to Omni

Cassandra Krzebietke

This place is excellent My fiancé and I booked a regular room and were able to upgrade to a suite for half the price We had a huge bathtub and shower room

Very clean room, comfy bedThe food down at the restaurant is good too Only complaint I have is the fries were not all that great But my Korean Fried Chicken sandwich and his steak was so yummy! We had breakfast down at the little coffee shop (wasn’t great for the price…)We also got couples massages at the spa and were treated like royalty when we went in there You can use the spa all day if you book a serviceOverall, it was a nice and enjoyable experience We were sad to leave!

Beautiful hotel!We only stayed 1 night but we will definitely be back!Rooms were super nice!We did the pick up breakfast as the restaurant or the room service is only open certain times and we missed it With covid room service I believe is not an optionLoved the free parking and the shuttle to the mall!Staff was super friendly!

Arnold Heney

No television remote in the room the first night but the front desk staff handled it quickly the next morning My wife asked for more coffee cups the second night but they were never delivered Club access was available however the espresso machine did not operate, and the meals were available thru a voucher downstairs in the market

Pool was small but nice we were hoping for a hot tub to relax in after spending the day at Mall of America We were happy with the proximity to the mall

Michael Moses

Nice digs for an airport stopover Right on the train line so don’t even worry about taking a shuttle, and technically you could just take the train into the city and not need a car at allSeems fairly new

A bit noisy in the hallways from guest room doors opening and closingCould use a bigger lobbyRooms felt modern and typical of a Hyatt Regency

**Updated my star rating due to the fact that I received a response about the maintenance of the pool That was my mistake for assuming the weren’t checking Like I said, the staff was nothing short of amazing

I may give them another try if we’re in the area**The staff was amazing and kind!! The room itself was ok Cracks along AC/heat unit, missing electricity plate, shower tub was grimey, shower head was leaking and sprayed water out of the shower unless you turned the shower head a certain way, and found a baby spider crawling on the bed Thin walls/door, you can pretty much hear everything I felt like the swimming pool hasn’t been treated and with an all girls softball team there all weekend and them using the pool often, I would think they would check One small elevator for the entire hotel, which took forever Breakfast was decent, but can’t really complain since it’s free Parking wasn’t too bad Location was ideal but I would definitely check out other hotels in the area after this stay

Wendy Leigh

What a wonderful stay at this hotel!!! The staff is amazing! Moona (and I think her name was Ellie) at the front desk went out of their way to make our daughter’s birthday an extra special experience Our stay was also incredible and we all slept so, so well! Here are my pros and cons for this hotelPros:- The staff 100%- beds are super comfy! They are a medium firm

We all slept so, so well!- We had a queen suite and it was very spacious with lots of room for our family of 5 to spread out/get ready in the morning- The breakfast is yummy!! We love how Springhill has the sugared waffles They are our favorite!! They also have hot protein items like sausage, eggs and bacon and they keep them well stocked-It was super duper quiet even though it appears the hotel was pretty full/busyat least from the parking lot and the main lobby area-Parking is easy- The shower is awesome! Lots of water pressure and the massage feature is wonderfulCons:- the building is older (if you consider that a con) There are stains on the carpets in the hallways Our room appears to be updated however- Our room had a bit of a perfumy smell when we first came in I was worried it would cause my asthma to flair, but I didn’t have any problems thankfullyWe would 100% stay here again if we return to the area in the future!

She went to every length to make sure our wants were satisfied, even thinking of things we didn’t ask for to make our party run smooth Wish I could find people like her for all our events! If you host an event, definitely ask for her to be your room server! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!


We had a fantastic stay over the weekend We were there in celebration of our daughters fifth birthday and the staff made it so special for her at every turn They even delivered a birthday amenity which included a JW teddy bear with a card signed by all the hotel staff for her

How thoughtful! Ben at the front desk at Terry at the bar were awesome along with many other staff we interacted with but didn’t catch their names Seriously one of the best hotels we’ve stayed at recently Thanks so much and we will be back soon!

The staff is friendly and attentive We ate breakfast at Cedar and Stone nearly every morning of our 5-night stay and were impressed with the quality and portions My husband is Marriott platinum elite and we were upgraded to a suite, which was a nice surprise

We enjoyed being able to relax in the living room area of our room Most importantly to me is that even though the hotel got pretty full during our mid-July stay, I never heard a peep from another room next to or above us I appreciated the ability to peacefully rest on my vacation without hearing noise from other rooms We will be back!

The casino staff are extremely helpful to everyone They didn’t just give me directions they took me there Weekday prices were very reasonable

The bingo hall was way too cold for me Jacket temperature They don’t sell food in there so I got pretty hungry A few more signs about which direction places are would’ve been very helpful They rent scooters for those of us that need them and not overly expensive either I had a very enjoyable time other than the cold

Mark R. Wojahn

All the staff that I encountered were friendly and very helpful! Loved the smoke-free gaming area I’m not much of a gambler, but have avoided casinos over the years due to the smoke Glad they made a separate area for smokers

Took in a show at the Mystic Showroom and stayed one night in a Promenade Tower room which was modern, clean, and spacious Great experience overall!

Robby Seigler

Kinda pricey, but was well worth the costs The steakhouse is SUPERB with excellent staff and some world class chefs (try the salmon, and yes medium is PERFECT for the Salmon) I recommend that if you’re going to eat at the Steakhouse, make a reservation

On busy nights, it might be difficult to get a table Definitely on my lists of places to visit again in the future

I really wanted to leave a 5 star review, but couldn’t The rooms are spacious and modern The breakfast is good

I can’t give it 5 stars because of the atrium noise Guests are to follow the quiet rules beginning at 9:00 There was a wedding reception that was still going strong at 11:00 The reception was in a ballroom/meeting room, but some of the the reception guests used the atrium They were loud Very loud If paying guests are to follow the quiet hours, then should reception guests

Rochelle Burger

The bathrooms are small, mildew on the ceiling in the shower Needs an update and added ventilation to it The deck door froze over and once it warmed up it melted to the bottom

No drainage holes The living area is nice and roomy Had a room with two queen beds Did not use the pool, no sitting area (table/chairs) The attached restaurant has really good food, will definitely return for that

Alan Duck

Had an incredible experience at the Embassy during a recent post-Covid work trip The hotel made hospitality feel like the good old days Front desk was very swift and attentive

However, the bar was set in the restaurant this trip Shannon the manager had a stacked house and her staff ran the place like pros Shannon cultivated a connection with many guests, despite how busy they were Azure, a new waitress, was equally exceptional Service was fast and my entire Corporate team will now know this is the place to stay on our next visit Highly recommended

Went down for a wedding and spent 2 nights here in 2 different rooms First room was a suite, working fridge, microwave, dishwasher and fireplace with different colors in it Very spacious room, separate bedroom with a poolside view

I slept on the pull out bed which I found to be comfortable Separate air conditioning for the livingroom space and bedroom which was very nice Second night, was a regular room Also very comfortable but I did find some food residue left under the desk there from a past guest Pillows and bed was very comfortable and the refrigerator, coffeemaker, and TV were all in working order Desk staff was very pleasant to work with and greeted us every time we walked in or out the front doors I’ve added pictures of the pool/jacuzzi area

This hotel was okay, but not for the price The “water park” is a joke There aren’t very many pictures of it on the website for a reason

There’s a little splasher area and one water slide The pool doesn’t go deeper than 3ish feet, and it is NEVER on unless you walk all the way out to the front desk and wait for someone to come along so you can request it be turned on There is only one elevator in the building and it’s right by the pool, so it stinks like corn chips and dirty, wet feetOur room had candy on the floor when we got there The toddler found one right away, and then we found a few more plus a lot of crumbs in the carpet We left a couple bags of ice in the tub to melt overnight and they left rings in the grime inside the tub One of the TVs in our room didn’t have a working remote We filled out the requests for our stay ahead of time, but we didn’t get any extra pillows or towels When the room is reserved for more than 2 people, why aren’t there more than two towels?The staff was nice They did have a little area where you could buy snacks or microwavable things We were able to go to the front desk every single time to ask for coupons when we wanted to eat in the restaurant, which made the kids’ food free

I came out for a business meeting and when I came back to the hotel after the meeting the room had already been cleaned and $300 of my money was stolen from the roomDon’t use this hotel theirs no safe to keep your belongs in and the house keeping will steal your money or anything of VauleAs a business owner myself this is so unprofessional

Make sure to never stay here I’ve been in plenty of hotels and never had anything stolen, especially money!Bad for business you guys should make sure you hire people that are more trustworthy and do better background checks!

Top notch hotel Staff was extremely nice Room was equipped with Stove top, refrigerator, dishwasher, real silverware, dinnerware and glasses

Room was very clean Beds were extremely comfortable Had a shower to die for We had access to amenities at no extra charge Provided a very healthy breakfast, fresh fruit, yogart, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, etc Highly recommend staying there

First, when we were asked about the quality of our stay by the gentleman checking us out, the concierge (blonde lady) next to him scolded us when we simply asked a question A few other things disappointed us There was a pool of blood in the pool room

My wife kindly let the concierge desk know about it In the 30 minutes we were in the pool area it was never cleaned Then, on the Sunday morning, we came down for breakfast and there were 25 airport cargo employees who came in off their shift and wiped out the breakfast buffet And they were rude I get it They were staying at the hotel too But the hotel was aware of their schedule and did not plan for it It would be like a restaurant taking a reservation for a large party and not preparing a head of time thus disrupting their service availability to the other patrons No restaurant would do that out of fear of alienating the other patrons And that is what happened Other guests, who like ourselves were enjoying a vacation at a nicer hotel, were thrust into what felt like a workplace cafeteria It ruined our experience And from the comments we heard of the very shocked other guests, it ruined their experience too

Pat Simmons

Great new hotel right across the street from Mall of America A fantastic restaurant 100 feet away named Hazelwood Food and Drink Rooms are spacious and are made for long stays with kitchens and refrigerators

On site lounge and grab and go breakfast Only draw back is being close to the airport, the takeoffs and landings can get a tad loud at night and the morning

This was a great hotel

room 415 was perfect for my two daughters to sleep on the queen bed and I (mom) slept on the pull-out sofa (which really wasn’t bad at all) Then, I had the bathroom, office, kitchen, sofa bed, and access to the main door all to myself I loved the pocket door to the bedroom where my girls were sleeping I was able to work late into the night and I got up early, ate breakfast, showered, and worked some more in the morning before they woke up The best part of breakfast: they have a waffle maker with two unique toppings: cool whip and canned cherries YUM!

Joe Koken

Have stayed often over past 5 years given location convenience to children Quality continues to decline, always short with staff but keep raising prices Checked in last night no amenities such as soap, shampoo, TV didn’t work (next day they determined missing cables) and temp at 60 degrees in room

Heat does work but took 30 minutes for room to be acceptable Called next day for help and desk said it would be awhile as she was only one working If their were other alternatives in area would stay there Bar attached to hotel is only bright spot…

Paul Ferguson

The staff were super friendly and I felt the rooms were cleanI arrived late and was put in 101 The handicap accessible room

The entire room is like an after thought full of old furniture and the disproportionate ceiling height gives it a strange stretched lookOverall my stay was okay I would have liked to have a normal room
