The Residence Inn by Marriott Minneapolis Edina recently won the “Live Loyalty Contest” for the Select Service Tier for their story about how their team brought loyalty to life at their hotel.


Rob Tillman submitted the story about a long term guest who had an incredible experience thanks to the dedication of the Residence Inn team. This guest, who generally works later hours, was finally able to join them for an Evening Reception however, due to his dietary restrictions, this guest was not able to eat any of the food provided.


Lynn Anfinson, the Director of Sales, quickly stepped into action after speaking with this guest. Within an hour, Lynn was back at the hotel with his favorite Indian dish, Chicken Biryani. The authentic dish was delivered to his table as he munched on a bag of potato chips and finished up some work for the day.


The guest was truly impressed and could not believe the above and beyond effort the staff took to make sure his stay was memorable! This is genuine hospitality and the reason why this guest and many more will continue to make the Residence Inn Minneapolis Edina their home away from home!


Great job team!
