Hotels in Minneapolis

As part of the largest urban area in the state of Minnesota, the Twin Cities offer visitors a wide range of accommodations. Hotels in Minneapolis range from chic boutique options to five-star chains, and from cheerful B&Bs to affordable hostels. Where you stay is dependent on your own tastes and budget, but no list of the best hotels in Minneapolis is complete without the following:

Don’t let the name fool you: the Grand is more boutique than imposing old-world hostelry. Named as one of Travel + Leisure’s 500 Best Hotels in the World, the Grand offers great service and beautiful downtown views./p>

Part of the W chain of luxury hotels, the Foshay is one of the most splurge-worthy hotels in Minneapolis. A 32-story tower that was completed months before the stock market crash of 1929, the Foshay boasts 230 rooms and superlative views of the city. With its restored period lobby, 30th-floor observation deck, and 27th floor Prohibition Sky Bar, the Foshay is perfect for travelers who want to splurge on a little old-fashioned luxury.

For travelers on a budget, the Minneapolis International Hostel can’t be beat. This converted circa-1900 mansion offers everything from private suites to large dorm rooms, all costing less than a fancy dinner out.

Inspired by contemporary art, this 60-room boutique hotel is located in the historic theatre district, directly across the street from the 1921 Orpheum Theatre. The hotel is decorated with more than 200 original artworks, including pieces by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, and Gary Hume.

The Ziggurat style Hotel Ivy is centrally located in the Downtown West section of Minneapolis, near Orchestra Hall, and connects to convenient skyway that makes it easy to walk to Minneapolis Convention Center even in the dead of winter.
