Bottom Line

This Best Western looks more like an old-fashioned French ski chalet than a chain hotel. Along with the unique design, it’s in the middle of downtown Minneapolis, and thus close to the Target Center and Minneapolis Convention Center. The property also has an on-site restaurant and bar that’s popular with locals. Comfortable rooms range from Standard Kings to Double Suites, though the couches in the suites are drab. With a small indoor pool and fitness center, it’s a worthwhile value for the location, though travelers looking for a more contemporary vibe might want to compare rates with the nearby Hilton Garden Inn.
