A Twin Cities Staycation: TownePlace Suites Mall of America

Over the long 4th of July weekend, we had the opportunity to enjoy a little stay cation at TownePlace Suites Mall of America.

I’m not sure we’ve ever stayed at a TownePlace Suites but they are owned by Marriott and I know we’ve stayed at Marriott’s before.

We loved our overnight. First of all my kids are hotel junkies. Staying overnight at a hotel is literally one of their all time favorite things to do. Miss F was practically beside herself when we pulled up and told the kids, “surprise, we’re staying here overnight!”

They hadn’t even seen the room yet and were pumped but once we arrived at our room, their excitement skyrocketed because it wasn’t just any old hotel room, it was a two bedroom suite, complete with a kitchen and living room.

Sometimes staying at hotels can be tricky for our family, especially when it’s all 7 of us, so the idea of having a two bedroom suite so everyone has their own space is perfect.

I love having a kitchen at hotels to keep snacks and some simple foods in. As the kids are getting older they are getting more self sufficient so can get their own breakfast started while we sleep in. That’s always a win.

TownePlace Suites is located directly across the street from the Mall of America which is perfect for a little stay cation with the family.

After spending the day shopping and riding rides, you can walk across the street and enjoy a swim in the indoor pool or relax outside by the fire and watch the planes take off.

We so enjoyed our overnight at TownePlace Suites! Convenient location, amazing accommodations [including a free breakfast!] and the friendliest hotel staff. Thanks for a great overnight!
