Minneapolis is the political, cultural and economic capital of the upper Midwest. As one half of Minnesota’s Twin Cities, it offers guests a wide array of shops, restaurants and cultural pursuits during their Minneapolis hotel stay. Whether you’re in town for business or leisure, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels’ spacious guest suites and top-notch amenities make it easy to settle in, and with locations near the Minneapolis St. Paul International airport, Minneapolis Convention Center and major shopping and entertainment districts, you can choose the Minneapolis hotel that’s right for your travel needs.
Downtown Minneapolis houses the city’s central business district and its popular theatre and nightlife districts, making it an ideal choice for business travelers. You’ll also find the majority of the city’s sports venues here, including Target Arena, stomping grounds for both the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Lynx (WNBA). Guests of our downtown Minneapolis hotels will find the Skyway is a convenient means to get around the city, especially in the harsh Minneapolis winters. This climate-controlled system of pedestrian bridges connects Nicolette Mall, the Block E Entertainment district, Target Center and Minneapolis Convention Center – so you can enjoy the big game, do a little shopping, then finish up with dinner and drinks along Hennepin Avenue – without ever stepping foot outside.
Of course, part of Minneapolis’s charm is its natural beauty, and guests of our Minneapolis hotels will definitely want to get out and explore the area’s endless lakes and park spaces during the warmer months. The Chain of Lakes is popular with residents and tourists alike, while the beautiful waterfalls and limestone bluffs of Minnehaha Park make it an ideal spot for a hike. There’s even a dog park, so if you’re staying at one of our pet friendly Minneapolis hotels, you’ll be pleased to know there’s something for everyone in this town.
Round out your Minneapolis tour with a trip to the bohemian West Bank.

"Beautiful hotel with some slight accessibility issues"
I loved my stay. The entire staff far exceeded my expectations regarding a technical issue I had with their in-room TV. My only issue is that, if you are entering the hotel from the parking garage,[More]
you have to lug your bags up and down stairs as there are no ramps or elevators from that side. [Less]

Memorial Day weekend, so the hotel was busy with many families staying to enjoy the water park. There was some noise up and down the halls as kids passed by, but that is going to be normal at a hotel with a large water park.
The water park itself is a great feature. It was a busy park on a busy weekend, but there was still plenty of room for the kids to enjoy themselves for as long as they wanted.
The one challenge with the busy weekend was the breakfast option. The restaurant was very busy on Memorial day and there appeared to be staffing issues with the number of servers. Unfortunately, this resulted in tables getting cleared slowly, which resulted in some seating delays for those of us waiting to eat. Through the hectic morning our server, Penny, maintained an incredibly positive attitude and did her best to keep up with the large number of tables under her care.
The buffet seemed to offer a better quality food than the menu. We had a mix of orders in our table and ultimately, everyone switched to the buffet after receiving their menu item orders.
Overall, a very good experience that will likely have us returning for a visit in the future. [Less]
