Wonderful hotel and experience for our family with young children. Hotel is attached to Hamilton Inn & Suites Where we and other guests had breakfast and used the pool. Not sure of the exact reason (low guest count or time low staff levels?)and whether ita a typical arrangement , but those amenities were very enjoyable. Food was fresh, always replenished and the staff were so friendly and personable! Pool was a bit chilly, too cold for some adults but not a problem for the kids!
Fitness room was nice ans clean and even had a peloton! The reception staff werw always more than happy to help, even to the point of changing TV channels to accommodate several family members’ interests in the bar And bringing us dishes and silverware when we had takeout. The in-room kitchens made it convenient to store food and snacks. Beds were VERY comfortable; even the sofa bed mattress was thick and plush (no coils or bends!!)!.
Location wise, there was a
market Fresh Thyme (?) and a yummy boba shop Feng Che an easy 2 min walk awayZ
Orherwise not much to see or do in the immediate vicinity (unless you’re there for some University event). 20 min drive to go to Saint Paul (museums) and Bloomington (MoA).
Parking is steep at $22/night considering the location and lack of security and coverage.
Nonetheless, this was an excellent family stay and we were very pleased and would return again
