Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis: Stay in the Middle of It All!
Our staycation in downtown Minneapolis was taken care of by Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis, but all awe and inspiration are my own.
Sometimes even mom and dad need to get away for a little bit. One of our favorite ways to do this is to find places to stay in Minneapolis. Downtown Minneapolis is only about an hour from our home, but a weekend getaway at the Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis sure cured the blahs that we were having!
Conveniently located in downtown Minneapolis, Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis is a fabulous place to stay whether you just want a night out on the town or if you are trying to find a family friendly place to stay.
The hotel is located just two blocks off of the Minneapolis light rail; the fantastic commuter train that goes all the way from Elk River to Mall of America.
Hop on the light rail and Minneapolis is at your disposal. There are so many things to do in Minneapolis. (If you’re planning a trip to Mall of America you should definitely check out our tips to make the most of your Mall of America trip)
The hotel is super classy without being stuffy. The textures and decor of the hotel and lobby are modern yet warm. It’s very inviting after a drive into downtown.
Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis staff are just as warm and welcoming as the hotel decor. During our entire stay, they made us feel like we were at home. They were prompt to greet us and courteous to all of our questions about what to do in downtown Minneapolis.
The rooms offer the comfort of home, with a little splash of elegance. The views of downtown Minneapolis from our corner room were absolutely breathtaking. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking here.
We stayed in the queen suite during our stay, and the accommodations made it really easy to enjoy our stay.
Most of the time I have a hard time sleeping when I’m traveling. If you totally get what I mean, you should check out tips to fall asleep easily when you travel.
That was one great thing about this downtown Minneapolis hotel. I SLEPT LIKE A BABY. EVERY NIGHT! That’s something that never happens to me.
Even the living areas were super soft and comfy. The living area boasted a comfortable couch and chair. The chair was this cool chair that just cried “read a book and kick back!”
The room even had a small dining area and wet bar. We may have done a happy dance when we saw a refrigerator and a microwave as we both enjoy left overs when we travel. Most upscale hotels seem to take those elements out, which makes traveling a little bit more expensive.
The bathroom was modern, but warm and inviting (yep do you see a trend starting ?) It was so refreshing to come “home” to a hot shower with the bright sun of the Minneapolis skyline shining into the rooms. We spent very long days at the X-Games, so having a great shower after a long day was the best!
The hotel also boasts a complimentary hot breakfast every morning. This was a warm ray of sunshine. I’m on a gluten free diet for health reasons, and I was able to find items to eat every morning (hello, freshly made omelet) that I wouldn’t be able to do on standard continental breakfasts.
From the location to the amazing room to the distance from transportation and night life, the Embassy Suites Downtown Minneapolis instantly earned a spot in our top 10 places to stay in Downtown Minneapolis.
We extremely enjoyed our stay, and we will definitely be visiting again next time we need to find places to stay in Minneapolis.
