I stayed here for 3 nights recenty with my wife and two 6-year old daughters. We were in the area for me to run the Twin Cities Marathon on Sun., Oct. 1st.
As far as the location, I would highly recommend it to any future runners looking for a place to stay directly next to the finish line. My wife and daughters were able to walk out the front door of the hotel and almost literally be right at the finish line of the marathon to see me finish the race.
I thought the value as far as price paid for what you get was great as well. In other words, the price was very reasonable for such a great location next to the finish line as well as the quality of the hotel.
Also, we thought the quality of the hotel was great. Everything seemed clean. Check in and check out was very easy. Computers in the lobby with easy printing for boarding passes. Restaurant near the lobby, which I did not personally eat at, but my wife and daughters at breakfast there while I ran the race and only had positive things to say. Parking was easy. The beds in the room were extremely comfortable. I could go on.
Lastly, we took the shuttle to and from the hotel on Saturday to go to the RiverCentre for packet pickup and expo for my race. We had a great experience with that. The shuttle runs on demand. The driver immediately took us and dropped us on when we notified them we wanted a ride, and immediately came and picked us up when we were finished and called back to the hotel to let them know we were ready for pick up.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, particularly if you are going to the area to run the Twin Cities Marathon.
