This newly reflagged (spring 2011) property is by far the closest Starwood hotel to the MSP airport, although it is still about four miles from the airport. Free shuttle service (they say 24/7) is offered to/from MSP and the Mall of America. Free outdoor parking in available. Because this property is technically located in Richfield (it's just north of I-494 at Lyndale, one exit east of the intersection of I-494 and I-35W, roughly along the 77th Street West access road) it may not appear at the top of airport hotel lists as MSP is in Bloomington. Even though the Four Points and also the Westin Edina Galleria are closer to the airport, some lists show the Sheraton Minneapolis South as the first Starwood property because it is located in Bloomington, despite it being more than twice as far from the airport. This is a Category 2 hotel which describes itself as full service. It has a restaurant and lounge and an indoor pool and health club. Rooms have coffee makers and some have whirlpool baths (higher category, so generally more expensive). There is a "club floor" which offers a buffet breakfast. Be careful about room rates if you make a reservation here. On random dates, I've noticed that the AAA and some prepaid rates exceed BAR. I consider a $229 AAA rate ridiculous for a Four Points in suburban Minnesota. Similarly, I would question whether the buffet breakfast is worth a $30 club floor premium for one person. I hope this property offers local or park-and-fly rates in the future. It could be a convenient Starwood option for this purpose.
