Hotels in Downtown Minneapolis
A sexy new hotel in an arguably unsexy city, the W Minneapolis is a stunning 2008 renovation of the 1920’s Art Deco Foshay Tower. Until 1957, it was the tallest building west of Chicago and it has remained a city landmark.
The Milwaukee Road Depot opened in 1899; today, this restored historic complex features 225 hotel rooms, an enclosed ice-skating rink, and a 15,000-square-foot indoor water park.
These minimalist digs put the spotlight where it belongs: on the 200-plus pieces of world-renowned contemporary art prominently displayed throughout the lobby of this 60-room boutique hotel.
Geared toward the fashionable set, Graves 601 is within walking distance of all of Downtown’s restaurants, theaters, and bars; Target Field, the new home of the Minnesota Twins; and just three light-rail stops from the Metrodome (home of the Minnesota Vikings).
This 140-room hotel has been setting the standard for luxury in Minneapolis since it opened in 2000; its tastefully appointed rooms exude elegance, from the marble bathrooms and luxe sateen-striped comforters and down pillows to the expected Egyptian cotton sheets and silk and terry robes.
