This is a nice hotel The sheets are extra soft The lamp between the beds very conveniently has a night light, which I think all hotels need

The bathroom has a shower only, no tub, but the space is largeThere is a full size fridge with freezer in the room and they provide dishes, silverware, real glasses and a nice dishwasher in which to wash them There’s a nice big closet and lots of counter/desk space with open shelves above which provides a sizable area for each guest to utilizeThe seating area has a couch and all lamps have extra, easily accessible plugins for charging personal devicesThe table is tucked under one of the counters out of the way, but it’s also on Wheels so you can move it around as necessaryI didn’t make it to the free breakfast, but there was no indication that it would be anything out of the ordinary for a Home2The parking lot seems small until you realize they have an underground parking garage where you can get very near the door to the elevators of the hotelThis hotel isn’t terribly far from the airport comments in a nice neighborhood It’s definitely the expected Hilton hotel experience Business travelers looking for extended stays would do well to consider this hotel Definitely recommend

The top sellers here are the comfortable beds, wonderful amount of space and modular furniture, and the lovely kitchenette With a Markey right out front of the hotel there are plenty of easy meals to keep on hand in a huge fridge! And with plates, cups, and silverware provided, it meant we could eat in more and save more money to spend in other places The indoor pool and hot tub are fantastic for a cold snowy day

Hotel staff are super friendly and helpful It was the best hotel I think I’ve ever stayed in

Tonya Allen

The rooms were very clean and have fully stocked kitchens w/ plates, silverware, refrigerator w/ freezer, full dining table, and dishwasher, and deep sink Well designed w/ lots of storage and the privacy curtain between the sleeper couch and bed was a great addition for some privacy! The breakfast was wet soggy omelets in a bag, kids didn’t like cereals, and the waffle batter tasted bad There is amazingly a grocery store located in the parking lot and other food options in walking distance

The female African American shuttle driver was great, I blanked her name The hotel didn’t place it on the card she did pass out on each of our ridesThe shuttle driver was knowledgeable about the city and the hotel, professional, energetic, and simply went out of her way to meet the needs of the guest she is an amazing staff member And would be a great addition to the front desk staff

I normally am not one to write reviews but I can’t let this one slide Michelle at the front desk gave us exceptional service!!! She went above and BEYOND to make our stay the best possible She even put together a bag full of breakfast food for our family since we have to leave by 2:30am for the airport

I travel A LOT and I can honestly say this is the best hotel stay I’ve ever had Rooms were super clean, staff was friendly and so helpful and we had a perfect stay! I will definitely be booking here the next time I’m in the Twin Cities!!! Thank you Michelle for making it such a great stay!

Daniel Cavalier

WOW, what a great stay I was here for approximately 3 months and I am obligated to this post to give the most accurate opinion of my experience while I visited the beautiful state of Minnesota 1st off, I usually stay at a low cost extended stay to keep my overhead low, however when you factor in all that this place has to offer it is actually cheaper

Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, great amenities and most of all, a fantastic staff! From the manager to the grounds keeper this place gives its all everyday Breakfast every morning and dinner 3 times a week, yea this was a total win for me Oh and if you want a good drink and awesome wings see Sue next door at the cute and quaint bar, tell em lil Johnny from Louisiana sent ya for a good laugh Big thanks to Michelle and her wonderful crew for a experience that should be expected at every hotel

J Yang

Staff was very nice and allowed us to check in early The place was clean and had extra toilet rolls Beds were comfortable and sheets were clean

The area was nice and lots of restaurants and stores within 5 to 10 minutes drive Would definitely recommend staying at this hotel Definitely going back if my family and I plan to visit Minnesota again

Best place to say The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was to die for words can’t explain it The breakfast was cooked for you

Kinda of like a restaurant is but better You site at a table and they hand you a Menu, you tell them what you want and the chef will cook it for you Pretty cool if you as me I wish all hotels did it this way So worth the drive The front counter people were amazing as well I would totally go back there again Thank you so much

Snacky Naykki

We love the location! So thats why we like stay here But our room was an ADA room, and being in a wheelchair was very tough in that room No where could my wheelchair fit with the bed in the way and TV stand/clothes closet

So I had to stay in the bed, the bathroom was nice size and nice roll in shower But the toilet was lower than a typical ADA toiletAlso, one other thing that was confusingcheck out is at noon why was housekeeping knocking on our door AND coming in before 10am? We were sleeping, recovering from an awesome weekend Our roommate was in the room and housekeeping did the same thing to him so he checked out way before check out time!Staff was very nice, and professional Brian the bartender was amazing! He was one of the reasons we come backplease keep him!We would like to come back, but needing a little better ADA room arrangement If you would like to contact me, please do

Taylor R

Check in was nice but let’s get down to what makes this place phenomenalBrian at the Bar/Restaurant is the most pleasant person I’ve ever had the pleasure dealing withI cannot say enough good things about him

Amy Laubenstein

Unfortunately our stay here wasn’t as pleasant as I wished When my family arrived in our room, the smell of synthetic scent spray was overpowering When we went into the bathroom there was a pungent smell of cigarette smoke as well as a subtle smell of it in our bedroom

The vent in the bathroom wasn’t working to try to dispel some of the smell It was obvious house keeping sprayed ton of scent spray to attempt to mask the smell We tried to see if there was another one bedroom option, but told us there were none available They also offered to spray the room again or carpet clean, but I didn’t want the risk of my toddler inhaling even more of those strong chemicals on top of the strong scent spray and smoke residue that already lingered in the room Also, not to mention there was barely enough toilet paper to last for our 3 night stayAnother issue was that our room was right next to the door to the stairwell which was extremely loud It woke me up several times throughout the night and early morning from people constantly opening and closing that door In fact, I just heard it a handful of times while writing this reviewHonestly, I have had a better stay at a Motel 6 than at this Residence Inn location

April Tucker

Wish we had found this place on all our trips The rooms are so big!! There was a full size fridge, island with chairs for eating, a desk, huge countertop for storage and big bathroom All the countertops were beautiful quartz, the shower was white tiled, guys

We will look for one of these on our weeklong vacation because we personally trust hotels more than Airbnb due to some bad experiences and this gives us the option to stock up food for lunch/dinner to help save some money on vacations Full kitchen with cooking supplies and free breakfast What a 10! We only stayed one night but it was a total win in our books! Consider staying here if you’re traveling through the Twin Cities or if you don’t mind staying a touch outside the cities for a vacay there Cheers! April

Christal Amos

The staff at this hotel are great All smiles and ready to help The only negative I have to input is the corporate office could do with giving this place some love

The rooms have many items chipped with ripped cutains The location is 10 minutes from mall of america in a very pretty side street With a lap pool and playground attached to it Marriott upper management should do right by this location

Chandar Kumar

Not so good service as it used to be, nice 1 bedroom kitchenette suites Shuttle service facilitiesRoom service/ cleaning is very poor

When asked reception to get room cleaned, then the reception staff is handing over a letter saying the rooms are serviced/cleaned every 3 days So you have to smell all the garbage ( food waste for 3 days) I usually put my garbage bin outside before heading out ( not even cleared even leaving it outsideHave to ask for bodysoap, shampoo when it runs out( Frustrating as room will be serviced after 3 days of stay 🤭)

Linda Goodman

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

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

Samantha Y.

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

sasho nedanovski

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!

Customer service was exceptional I tried to get the women’s name that helped us check in and couldn’t get it But she was wonderful and made my daughters birthday stay feel very special

So awesomeThe room was beautiful, unique and very cleanWe loved the hotel was connected to the mall We never had to leave that was super coolOne thing that I thought was the pool was supposed to be salt water but we smelled a lot like chlorine Not a big deal the pool was also fun and loved the tables we got to have dinnerWe will absolutely be back!

Mark Drury

Hotel is very nice Radisson needs to focus on building more ‘Blu’ hotels in the USA Staff was extremely friendly, great shuttle service to and from the airport and local businesses

It’s attached to the Mall so easy access to shopping The on-site bar was excellentThe rooms were very nice but the walls were very thin; could hear doors closing down the hall and the loud TV from the next room over Overall a good stay

Denise Morgan

We came with our son for spring break The lobby is so cool and comfy The rooms were fun and funky

The bed was a little firm for me but the pillows were perfect Note that the room service menu is on the TV along with other information We kept looking for a book The in- house restaurant, Firehouse Grill is so yummy I loved that the hotel was attached to the Mall of America, it was so convenient My only complaints are that there are not many channels to watch on TV, unless you want to pay for on demand, so we just streamed from our phone The main chair in our room was stained with ink, a drink of some sort, and full of dirt The rest of the room was very clean though and we spent most of our time exploring so not a big deal The shower was a rain head with a hand attachment as well Heaven! The pool is nice but not very big It fills up fast and there is also no hot tub Room service was awesome Would definitely come again I wish I took better pics

Nansie Van der Hout

The hotel is very close to mall of America and offers free shuttle service to the mall and to the airport This is not the usual Fairfield setup, I think it’s a bit older There was no microwave in the room

The breakfast was minimal, I always look forward to the Marriott oatmeal in the morning, but they only had instant oatmeal and microwave breakfast sandwiches There was also eggs and various breakfast meats The bathroom still had individual shampoo instead of the dispensers on the shower wall The shower was nice, but in a tub/ shower set up instead of the more modern showers we’ve had before The rooms are clean and comfortable The staff was friendly and accommodating We would stay here again It was one of the lower priced Marriotts in the area If you are sensitive to noise ask for a room in the back

Tim K

I’ve stayed here a few times Clean rooms, nice breakfast My first stay there was a mixup on the room type I booked — when I mentioned it to the manager the following day, he owned it and went above and beyond to make it right

Each stay since then has been smooth and enjoyableI’m happy with this hotel and will consider it again when I need a hotel in the area

Michael Cantor

Not worth it Look for something better for this priceWe have booked 3 rooms and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights

We have booked it and paid extra to get an hotel with a breakfast and a pool Although the breakfast was decent, the pool had freezing water and the hot tub was not operational But the peak of our stay was that we didn’t get our rooms cleaned/serviced for 4 nights Even though we have asked and reminded the front desk after our 2nd and 3rd nights Disappointing Never again!

Zach Leen

The highlight is the breakfast Waffles are good Beds definitely are not queen size

full size is more accurate With that being said the rooms are clean and it’s comfortable The parking lot is beat up The elevators are nice and fast The pool area is in the lower level and was fun but a little bit of a small space The hot tub is closed

Jenna Downey

The stay at this LaQuinta was really comforting At first glance, we thought the hotel room was pretty small, old, and were bummed out the patios weren’t able to be accessed When we checked out the pool, we were stunned because it looked out-dated, but we enjoyed our stay here nonetheless! We found the pool enjoyable even though there wasn’t much to it, and were bummed that the hot tub wasn’t working

The only real big downside was the breakfast The orange juice tasted extremely watered down, and the options were pretty limited The biggest things that mattered though was the cleanliness of our rooms & the friendliness of the staff! The rooms were tidy and clean but the walls were very thin, and we could be heard (talking in normal tone) from outside the room and we could hear others talking and moving around outside of ours All of us found the beds uncomfortable, and all of my friends had one night where they all would wake up every hour or so due to noise We booked this place due to the lower price in Minneapolis and since it was near everything, so if you’re looking for a budget place this is a good option, but consider everything listed above!

Megan F.

Amazing rooms Comfy beds Fridge, microwave and tv

Staff charged my card for my entire stay versus just holding my card for incidentals even though the room was already prepaid through their website! Each staff member I spoke to you gave me a different story asked to what was happening, which made my stay miserable considering they took a significant amount of money off of my card You have to reserve your shuttle from the airport Which comes at the top of every hour They state that they will shuttle you to any venue that you want but when trying to go to Mall of America which is 10 minutes away the only shuttle they had was at 6 PM and they would pick you up at 8:20 PM, the mall closes at 8 PM so you have to stand outside underneath warming lights which don’t work until the shuttle comes We used the shuttle two times and each time it was late by 30 to 40 minutes Even with that being said I tried to go to the mall called them at 5:45 and they said the last shuttle goes out at 6 PM but it was too late to order the shuttle because the driver was already doing other things The breakfast was horrible the only salvageable thing would be the waffles The apples were not even good The milk tasted gross and there was nothing except sugar for your coffee No eggs or yogurts “Hash browns” Were simply just potatoes cooked with no frying or seasoning The hot tub does not work and they will no longer be using it because it’s broken and cost too much to fix it according to staff, the pool has way too much chlorine in it and it’s freezing cold I am giving this a 2 star because the rooms themselves were fine

N Kuhn

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

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

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!

I stayed here because I need to charge my car Typically I go to a place, plug in- once it works, I get the room Never had any issue doing so,but here, you need a room key to charge

Seemed reasonableI go in, explain I need to charge as a condition of using this hotel The front desk says it worksIt does not work They are charging for an amenity they do not provide, and will not give money back on the roomGo somewhere else if you need a charge

Very clean and conveniently located hotel just to the south of Minneapolis andminutesaway from The Mall of America The property is next to a fun restaurant Clive’s Roadhouse and a Denny’s There is also a gas station at the end of the street

They feature an above average breakfast buffet with eggs, rotating meat, cereals, breakfast pastries and fruits You definitely could do a lot worse with your choice of a hotel I have stayed here multiple times without an issue The staff is always friendly

Very friendly staff especially one of the ladies at front desk, wish I’d caught her nameOur room was super clean and fully equipped kitchenette! There was a very nice continental breakfast spread in the morning (with fresh fruits) We were able to walk from here to Mall of America pretty easily

There’s a really nice gym here which I took full advantage of and basically got to use all to myself since there was nobody in there 2 of the 3 times I went to use! 😀

Charlie Mader

Rooms are very noisy I stay in hotel rooms 10 to 15 nights per month for work and these are some of the thinnest walls and floors I’ve ever experienced I could clearly hear people conversing in the adjacent room and every step people took in the room above

Another negative is the slow and unreliable WiFiOther than that it is a nice, clean property with friendly staff, but if your primary goal is a quiet night of sleep it probably isn’t the best choice

Brad Beggs

Nice, newer hotel across the street from MOA and a five-minute drive or 15-minute light-rail trip to the airport Parking is freeRooms include a small kitchen with a real stove and oven

The pool is nice, there are a couple of outdoor seating areas, and breakfast offers a nice variety of warm options like sandwiches, omelets, waffles, and oatmealIt is very well kept and managed, with excellent checkin service from Jon

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!

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
