We stayed in the hotel there a couple of days about two years ago - our daughter (then 4) really loved the little water park inside. That complex seemed a much better of adaptive reuse than what we normally see. For about a year afterwards our daughter said she wanted to go back to Minneapolis just so she could stay in that hotel. It made more of an impression on her than the LEGO place or the aquarium at Mall of America.
