    Like the high tech facilities they provide. Order your food and drinks via ipad. They have so many plugs to help you charge your devices and let you use their ipads for free

    If you have a decent layover here, check out the golf driving range (with bar service) on the second floor just outside the main security checkpoint. Not a bad way to kill an hour or two.

    A really nice, clean and quiet airport. Lots of food choices and it's really easy to get from the airport to downtown Minneapolis- just hop on the blue line tram! Costs $3 and will make it in 25mins.

    If you have a layover, theres no need to spend money for a hotel. Even if they dont let you spend the night at the gates you can spend a night at the cozy carpet at the baggage claim (next to plugins)

    Concourse E is best for napping/sleeping. Ride the elevator across from "Meadows" up to the third floor, and enter the 'quiet' traveler area. Don't bother with the airline clubs as they are small.

    Try the free pat-down style massage at Terminal 1 TSA. Increase your chances of being a randomly selected winner by having odd, frequent International travel patterns.

    This is one of the longest stretching airports I have ever traveled through, so budget plenty of time for connections. Gates F and G are connected through an under path which takes extra time.

    One of my favorite airports in the U.S. Grab a Caribou coffee and visit the Minnesota store. Very tech savvy with iPads in most of the restaurants. So many stores...Uffda!...don't miss your flight!

    Nice airport with many charging stations but distance between terminals is further than similar airports. Good food. Rock Bottom Brewery had dead bugs in the ice and employees didn't seem to care.

    Terminal G seems to have taken inspiration from Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Savannah in allowing open containers throughout the terminal. Grab a beer and wander around

    Plenty to eat/do/shop, but leave yourself time. There's walking to do in every concourse and a lack of planning can get your name called over the intercom... or worse, cost you a flight.

    Everything is great here. Free iPads at all@the gates and restaurants. Great food and drink ordered and served and paid all through your iPad. And yes you can surf as well

    Come for the planes, stay for the retail! MSP does an amazing job of integrating retail and dining into the footpaths in a complementary way. It is just a fun place to walk around. And shop. And eat.

    Hidden bathroom: Above the restaurant at the entrance to concourse E is a "Quiet Seating Area" in the back is a clean, hardly used set of mens and women's restrooms. Enjoy!

    The G gates areas are really relaxing, comfortable, and have healthy food options that are quick. The seating is clean and seats have tables with iPads and outlets. Great spot for a layover!

    People - if you're going thru TSA Pre you don't need to take shoes off, remove belts, take out laptops etc. it's amazing how many travelers don't know this and how few TSA agents say anything.

    Another tip said to take the tram thing to the gates to reduce your "carbon footprint". I say walk to your gate and reduce your waistline. Buy smaller shoes to reduce your carbon footprint.

    One of my favorite airports to go through when moving through the midwest. Everything is clean and easy and even the lines move very fast for the amount of people that come through. A major hub.

    The trouble with this otherwise nice airport is that the location of the regional jet terminal so far from the other concourses makes anything less than a one hour layover a crapshoot to connect.

    One of nicest airports to travel to/through! There is plenty of helpful & cheerful people to assist you or greet you (well except TSA agents), plenty of exceptional concept restaurants, shopping etc

    Check-in online ahead of time and have your ticket sent to your mobile device. I skipped the long lines at the check-in counters and went straight to security. Win!

    Talked to an employee at the food court who overheard my convo with a friend- subway is way less expensive than the sandwiches at the Concourse G Food Court. Better deAl and say true!

    There's really nothing to complain here, especially by delta! Lots of organic and gourmet food and snacks, slightly pricey but which airport isn't? One of the best airports I've been to in the US

    If y'all don't like Delta then why do you fly on that airline? I personally LOVE Delta! The people are always great and first class is outstanding! Their Air Club is fantastic too!

    If your traveling with pets, don't leave the building to walk them. Go to Costomer service and they will give you a key to a private pet area so you don't have to go back through security. Wonderful!

    I learned today that different food areas play different types of music over the sound system. If you like hipster alternative tunes, relax and eat in terminal G15 gate area :-)

    The TSA Pre checkpoint is #4 which is more than halfway along the drop off area at the terminal. (Checkpoint #1 is the first and so on). It's a very short walk regardless though.

    Aveda in an airport? It's great to see the airport honor local companies like so. There is a lot of shopping opportunities in this once famed Northwest hub. Ike's is the show stopper (and Snoopy!)

    In January or February, you land on top a 4-foot thick sheet of ice; may be a glacier of some type. Complimentary cross country skis when you get off the plane is a nice touch though.
  • Emily O.

    Some of the best restaurants in the cities are in the airport. I recommend Ike's- they aren't capable of making bad food. Use the skyway checkpoint if you have no bags. Otherwise, gate 6 is fast.

    If you come here to see someone off before a flight, there is only a single restaurant, nothing else. Maybe the upstairs area would be a great place to put a coffee shop and other restaurants?

    There are so many great new food options here!Try Shoyu in G for awesome noodles and Mimosa ( G) for Nicoise Salad! Just review the menu & order via the ipads!Changing my airport food expectations!

    Concourse G the most tech advanced in any US airport I've been to. iPads at every table to order food, drinks, coffee, play games or surf the net while you wait for your very delayed flight.

    Pick up a coupon book at the airport information desk. While there and if you can, rent a bike or walk when the weather is warm, on one of the cities green-way's which are a blast.

    So the tram system says concourse C the whole time but definitely gets you closer to concourse A and B. The signs are confusing but you definitely travel faster using it.

    G terminal stripped of all chains and instead filled with fantastic, healthy local restaurants, microbrews, and Cibo Expresses. Surdyk's Flights in main terminal one of top 10 US airport destinations.

    Rental car goers beware! If landing around 11pm the rental car facility will most likely be closed by the time you get your bags (6am-11pm). no express pickups for any of the members programs either.

    This airport is so huuuge & busy. I would advice to get here 2hrs early or eatlier. Check points are insanely long. Some people are still unsure of what's acceptable to pack & hold up the line.

    The French Meadow Bakery has good food but service SUCKS. waited to be seated and sat ourselves when no one helped us after 5 min. The waitress brought another table silverware when WE had the food.

    This is one of the most awesome airports in the country to get hammered at. There are so many great and unique bars that it is almost a blessing if your flight is delayed. Explore, drink, and be merry

    If you don't have any checked bags and are renting a car use the skyway checkpoint. When leaving just make sure you have your boarding pass and check in the Skyway security. It us usually way faster

    Simple planning makes the difference, get there early and grab a good seat and do some people watching. Takes the stress out of worrying about security delays. Don't sweat the small stuff!
  • DoubleTree by Hilton M.
    If you’re unable to select the middle seat when booking your flight, do not book that flight. The flight is most likely oversold which could make for an unwanted adventure when take-off time comes.

    If you need to stop for a layover, MSP is probably the best place in the North to do so. Very clean, new, and electric sockets under the bar table. Finally, an airport for the 21st century.

    Stretch out your legs at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with their walking path. The 1.4 mile track leads you around the airport, and is easy to follow with green dots to stay on track.
