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. This neighborhood offers eclectic shops, colorful bookstores, international restaurants and a bustling independent theatre and art scene. After the sun sets, make your way back downtown to enjoy the city's lively nightlife. Minneapolis boasts a variety of pubs, clubs and watering holes up and down the main strip, including the legendary First Avenue nightclub (scenes from Purple Rain were filmed here) and Dakota Jazz Club.
