Placed at the heart of downtown’s southern suburb of Richfield, Candlewood Suites along 77th Street is a great way to stay close to some of the city’s most overseen attractions. Just a ten-minute drive from Minneapolis International, the locale is perfect for business travelers, not only for its on-site perks but simple quietude. With a slew of cafes and parks that make up the heart of Richfield, you’ll also have plenty to do in the off-time, even more if you’ve got a reliable ride of your own. Take advantage of the airport shuttle provided by your hotel, or reserve a private lift to get into the heart of the Sister Cities.
Go for a walk somewhere pretty, heading to Wood Lake Nature Center for a slew of boardwalk trails and local wildlife that makes an early morning spectacular. For something with open lawns and close access to the hotel, head to Augsburg Park, the perfect place for family picnics as well as quick lunch breaks. Since the hotel doesn’t offer free breakfast or an on-site restaurant, you should know what to do for food, whether that means authentic Mexican at Andale Taqueria or classic Siamese cuisine from Joy’s Pattaya on the corner of 76th and Lyndale Avenue. Head north to experience the magic of downtown at some point, getting through the ten-mile trek with an ease that flows like the Mississippi.
