The Westin in Minneapolis has a great lobby space in the heart of downtown, and is a great reuse of an old bank building (Wine Vault, anyone???). The lobby, with the bar and other areas, is huge, and showcases what would be the main public area of the bank. The bank's vault converted to a wine storage and tasting area is fantastic. The rooms were very clean and comfortable (a good night's sleep here!), although they seem to be a bit outdated and could use a remodel. But, like I mentioned, they were clean and comfortable, so ultimately met my needs just fine.
Kelly Phillips (front office manager) really went above and beyond to make sure our room was ready early when we showed up with our 3 year old desperately ready for “nap time”
Awesome Service, great team !
