A casual 3-star hotel especially close to The University of St. Thomas campus, the Residence Inn along South 8th Street is a simple way to make the most out of downtown nights. Home to free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, and a range of suites that come with fireplaces, living areas, and in-room whirlpool tubs, you’ll be astounded at what 3 stars gets you. The perfect spot for work and pleasure due to its equidistant location to the Minneapolis Convention Center as well as the atrium-lit shops at City Center Mall, you’ll have plenty to do. See it all by having transportation figured out, whether it’s a private ride or bullet-speed Light Rail on 5th Street.
Get a feel for what your block has in store, checking out the local pieces at Gallery 13 around the corner to kick-start the day right. When the sun dips low past the horizon, head to Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, open only in the evenings and home to live music and fine dining every night - be sure to get there for happy hour to get in on the best deals! Another nearby getaway is the Gateway District, home to historic buildings and diverse museums that teach as much about the area as wow - start with a stroll through Mill Ruins Park, located beside the iconic Stone Arch Bridge and home to the leftover assemblage of a flour mill that can easy be learned about at the on-site exhibit as well as the Mill City Museum next-door.
