Hotel Sofitel Minneapolis-- now travellers CAN shower standing up!

This post is a review of the Hotel Sofitel Minneapolis, where I recently spent a night while on vacation. It was a nice luxurious stay in a place a close drive to both the MSP airport and to the Mall of the Americas. I found it particularly delightful for two reasons:
  • Through, we booked the stay for only $80 a few weeks in advance. That we were able to stay in such a nice place for $80 only increases my disgust at the hotel on a highway in Delaware who once asked $75 of us. The $75 price was for fools who just showed up wanting a room: in line right in front of me a trucker with a pre-arranged business connection was paying a mere $25. Perhaps this just shows how the poor stay poor and the rich get richer.
    Here are views of the lobby.

  • One can shower standing up. Rarely is there a hotel built where a tall person can take a shower standing fully erect. Here we have a view of the showers in the room where we stayed. There is an additional shower head which must have been 6'7" off the ground.
