About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel

- Features multiple restaurants and bars on site
- Located less than a mile from the Mall of America
This water park resort and hotel was renovated in early 2018 with updates to guest suites, additions to the entertainment features, new restaurants (and bars for the adults). The hotel's Northwoods-style suites all feature separate living areas, flat-panel TVs, microwaves, minifridges and coffee makers. Wi-Fi, parking and towel services are included with the nightly resort fee.
All lodge guests receive water park wristbands (the park is restricted to guests only), and even though check-in is at 4 p.m., you can arrive as early as 1 p.m. to hit the pool. The indoor water park includes multiple pools, waterslides, a high-speed bodyboard simulator and a special "splash cinema" experience.
There are also organized kids activities before the park opens, at lunchtime, a daily storytime and a nightly Northwoods Friends show. If the kids get tired of swimming, there's tons of entertainment on dry land -- the resort houses a climbing wall, a mini-bowling alley, a ropes course and an arcade (additional fees apply).
Dining is mostly casual, from pizza and pasta to daily buffet selections to burgers, fries and chicken fingers (and sundaes for dessert). The hotel's Barnwood restaurant gives parents more upscale small-plate options along with craft beers and cocktails. Don't forget to schedule a nightly Wine Down service -- parents can request a bottle of wine and a small treat to be delivered to the suite after the kids are in bed.
Entertainment options beyond the resort are just as family-friendly. Only a highway separates Great Wolf from the Mall of America (and IKEA Twin Cities). Combine the two experiences for water park fun and tax-free clothing shopping.
