NAVIGATE OUR MINNEAPOLIS HOTEL MAP

We couldn’t love our central downtown location anymore, and we’re confident you will, too. Situated on Second Avenue South, between South 7th and South 6th, our hotel is placed a convenient 20-minute drive from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and within easy reach of public transportation and the major freeways that flow in and out of the city. You’ll find us two blocks from the light rail and six blocks from all stadiums. With climate-controlled Skyway access to every major hot spot in downtown Minneapolis, our hotel makes the ideal hub for business and leisure travelers alike.
