2 night stay for my son to attend orientation at University of Minnesota. Room was large with kitchenette, table and chairs, comfy beds. The receptionist was very nice and helpful. Very close to campus, dedicated free parking. I look forward to staying there again.

Response from Nadiya T | Property representative |
Good Afternoon Clarissa, We are about 2 miles from First Avenue. If you are attending an event at First Avenue it is easy to get a cab, uber, lyft or even take public transportation which is right outside of the hotel.
