"We thoroughly enjoyed EVERY aspect of our stay."

We thoroughly enjoyed EVERY aspect of our one-night stay at the Intercontinental Hotel, but the highlight was definitely watching planes land and take off from the floor-to-ceiling windows in our guest room on the 8th floor! Spectacular view, but so quiet that we could hardly hear them. Also the convenience of its location on the Terminal One campus, and the frequency of the shuttles to Terminal Two made our stay and departure very relaxing!

"Every guest is treated like a ‘VIP’!."

The rooms are very comfortable and LOVE the walk-in showers! The staff is very friendly and efficient, and every guest is treated like a ‘VIP’! The shuttle service to/from the airport is SO convenient and runs on schedule as promised. The shuttle drivers are the best!!!

The staff was excellent and very helpful with my late-night arrival. The room was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Allowed for great rest after long day of flights. Shuttle service was great and quick to and from airport gates.

I always appreciate how accommodating the staff is at this hotel. They always make my stay feel like it is my home away from home. I will always use this hotel whenever I am in Minnesota.

"My family and I enjoyed staying at this hotel."

My family and I enjoyed staying at this hotel. The kids loved watching airplanes take off from the runway. Even though it's next to the airport, the noise is minimal. Extremely comfortable beds too.
