The Destination
If there's one thing students know how to do, it's carve out a stimulating space for young people in the center of town: the riverside University District contains not only a mind-bending museum by acclaimed architect Frank Gehry, but also a world-class concert hall and LEED-certified football stadium. Surrounding the university, some of Minneapolis' oldest neighborhoods offer their own stunning architecture, including 19th-century homes, historic theaters, and Witch's Hat water tower.

The Digs
Bookworms and beer connoisseurs will feel equally at home at The Commons Hotel, a re-imagined boutique property in the heart of the downtown University District. Sink into a supple leather armchair with a copy of Dickens or a double old-fashioned—the industrial schoolhouse setting inspires both liquid and literary pursuits in its geek-chic spaces. Guest rooms are adorned with argyle wallpaper, velvet pillows, and vintage volumes selected by the resident Book Butler. Downstairs, the Beacon Public House satisfies cerebral thirsts with alchemist mixology lessons and word-game wine hours, not to mention a long list of local microbrews.

  • "The hotel was immaculate; the rooms have been totally renovated and are luxurious and classy. I could not have been happier with anything in the place... The towels were even so new they still put off a little bit of fuzz when you used them."
