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.

Doubletree Sweet Dreams Beds

Really the best part. – Sweet Dreams Bed at Doubletree Park Place.

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.

Room Chair

Mmmm. Loafy. – Chair in standard room at DoubleTree Park Place, Minneapolis, MN

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

How we got it: Standby-style upgrades are offered at booking (This was not an upgrade). If available rooms may come with better (but not great) views or are 2 room units with a sofa.

    Very entertaining, my wife wondered why I was laughing so loud. Nicely done!

    Thanks Latty! Happy to induce real “LOL’s”.

    My BIGGEST issue with this property is that there is no wifi in the rooms yet, only ethernet ports. The lobby has free wifi and you can get mixed signals in the rooms that overlook the pool or lobby. For this reason, I usually select the Homewood Suites across the street. The West End is a great place to hang out.

    Excellent & important point. Thanks Brad.

    The hotel is advertising in room wifi to be installed by June 1, 2013 with a 50 mb line. That’s what I’ve been waiting for.
