The DoubleTree Park Place in Minneapolis (just outside, actually) is the perfect host for small time insurance seminars or B-list baseball card conventions. But read this anyway.

The Room: The beds are comfortable and consistent with what I’ve found across the DoubleTree brand. Other than that I can’t imagine wanting to do much more this room. The desk isn’t bad on space but not quite what the modern ‘papers and gadgets-everywhere‘ business traveler might have in mind…but the chair is comfortable. Entertainment? Even if you’re not much of a TV snob, this one could use a few extra inches. Channel selection is adequate, basic- basic cable and movies.
Your washroom offers up a sink, toilet and shower/bath combo. Even the most creative cell in my brain can’t find a way to make it sound special. Amenities are by “Citron” and with the exception of the small bar of soap, worth leaving in your room.
Service: I got a cookie when I checked in. It was warm and delicious. I think there was a person there too.
Overall: I’m not hating on the DoubleTree, I”m just not all that excited about it. The common areas are tired, the rooms are a smidge dark and dated but comfortable. It’s location just outside Minneapolis and near some very good shopping and entertainment options make it worthy as a place to learn about term life insurance, buy a Butch Wynegar card from 1978 for a ridiculous price…or sleep.
Rating (Room-only): 3 hops of 5
