BLOOMINGTON — Dozens of guests were evacuated from a Twin Cities area hotel overnight because of some problems with building.

Police said a section of cement stucco fell from the exterior of the 14th floor at the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Bloomington about 2 a.m. today. It caused an opening in the side of the high-rise building. The cement stucco landed on the roof of the lobby below, damaging a water pipe. That caused flooding in the hotel lobby.

Authorities said no one was hurt. All the guests at the La Quinta were relocated to other area hotels.
