Historically placed between Downtown’s west side and the hidden charm of Elliott Park, the Best Western on the corner of 8th and 4th is a low-cost way to fall in love with downtown Minneapolis. Home to a cottage-style look that moves from the outside architecture to the hardwood-floor inside, the stay makes checking in feel like coming home. About half a mile from the Minneapolis Convention Center and walking-distance to a slew of bars, the stay is especially popular with business travelers. With expansive suites to enjoy, an indoor pool, plus a free area shuttle, you’ll get to the fun quick.
Look forward to what’s right around the corner as much as what’s downstairs, starting with a sit-down at Normandy Kitchen, the on-site restaurant and bar that’s been serving the local community since 1941. Go for a stroll through Gold Medal Park, located one mile north of the hotel and surrounded by expansive views of the Mississippi River as well as instant access to the historic Mill City Museum. Head to the Stone Arch Bridge when you get the chance, looking forward to bright glimpses of St. Anthony Falls as well as the skyline of Minneapolis. End the evening somewhere classic, heading west toward the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden for a look at the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry statue.
