I am not a high end hotel kinda of guy. Don’t get me wrong, I like fancy hotels but I try to spend as little time in a hotel as I can. I am all about the trip and where I am going. I would rather spend points on 1st class flights and then enjoy wherever I am going – a hotel is for some work, sleep and maybe breakfast.
The SPG Four Points by Sheraton MSP is not a high end hotel, but you know what, there is more than meets the eye at this hotel. They have nice suites and even their standard room was OK as you will see (I did not get upgraded as a Platinum guest).
I really like the Four Points concept. To me this is a Holiday Inn express all grown up.
Social and computer areas seem very popular and the TV has an impressive sound system if you happened to be there to watch a sporting event etc.
The pool area was locked but seemed nice.
The workout room has lots of machines (I really need to start spending some time in these rooms when out and about).
Breakfast, as a Platinum was free as one of my choices (one night I picked points, another the breakfast). The chef was making omelets, fresh waffles and more. The fruit was fresh and good. Love that.
My room was fine other than the fact it was tiny. Clean, fast wifi and free wifi.
The work area was clean and had ports for power and USB easily accessible. Love that.
The bathroom followed the room theme. Clean, all the stuff I needed, just tiny.
Other bits. The shuttle is free and runs often. You should call when you arrive at the airport if you are carry-on and request ASAP or if you have luggage as soon as it arrives. It runs round the clock back to the airport just be sure to request a time. It does take about 15 minutes each way so plan for that. They also run a free shuttle to the mall of American.
For 3-4k SPG points I consider this a good value for MSP. Not right at the airport, but for value and features a solid choice. – René
