The hotel is located downtown near the streets of Hennepin Avenue and Nicollet, which are home to prominent attractions and prestigious businesses in Minneapolis. Right outside the hotel, there are great opportunities to enjoy sidewalk cafes, take in some jazz, see the orchestra, walk down the Mall to the Mississippi River, wander through the impressive nine-mile skyway system that spans downtown, or shop-til-you-drop at fashionable stores, since there is no sales tax on apparel or shoes.


Minneapolis's trails, parks, and outdoor activities are plentiful - it has a reputation for being one of the nation’s healthiest cities, and has been voted as the No.1 city in America for public parks and gardens, with nearly 200 parks. It is also home to several tourist attractions, like the top-visited Mall of America, world-class museums, and performance venues (downtown Minneapolis has more theater seats per capita than any U.S. city outside of New York!).
