Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel: A nice hotel in a central location

Note: My favorite travel website is tripadvisor.com, where I file an occasional review. One follows…

We stayed at the Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel, a Starwood property, in November 2011 because it is the only hotel near our final destination.

It’s in a neighborhood where, for your own safety, you won’t want to stray very far on foot at night. But the benefit of the property is that it’s centrally located, partway between downtown Minneapolis and south Minneapolis.

We found our room to be modern, clean and comfortable, just what you’d expect at a Sheraton. Employees were friendly. My request for a first-floor room was honored. Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel is not cheap, but we took advantage of an online special called Better Tomorrows. We stayed two nights in a room that had a king-size bed, big-screen TV and large work area. The first night was at the regular price of $129 plus tax. The second night was 40 percent off, $77 plus tax. There is a large parking lot right outside the main door, but you’ll pay about $8 per day for using it.

Next to the hotel, across a short stretch of Elliot Avenue South in a former Sears store, is Global Market (midtownglobalmarket.org). Take time to walk through it.

You’ll find quaint ethnic eateries — one place even sells a camel burger — plus shops offering meat, produce, baked goods, flowers, crafts, coffee, jewelry and gifts.

And, no, I couldn’t bring myself to try a camel burger.
