Minneapolis is by far one of the must-see spots in Minnesota. From Target Field to the Walker Art Center to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, there’s just so much to see and take in from the city where Mary Tyler Moore once threw her hat. Of course, if you’re venturing into the city, there’s one primary concern that should come first before anything else: lodging. You’ll need a place to stay if visiting Minneapolis, and if you really want to get the most out of the city, you’ll need to find one that’s close to where all the extraordinary sights are located. It’s not just a matter of convenience but those skyways are incredibly helpful during the colder months. Thankfully, there are plenty of hotel options to choose from for both a pleasant stay and ease of access to all the wonders of the city. Here are the best hotels in Minneapolis.
