This location is on the west end of Uptown, with easy freeway - bus - bikeway access to the heart of Uptown AND Downtown Minneapolis, Mall of America, and everything that brought you here.

It is two miles straight east to Lake Calhoun and the center of Uptown, and about six miles by freeway to downtown.

We are 15-25 minutes from all major attractions: Amusement Parks, Casinos and Racetracks, Museums, Mall of America, and of course the Airport.

Very close to downtown Minneapolis and Convenient to the University of Minnesota. It is possible to attend a conference or trade show at the Convention Center more easily here than staying at some downtown hotels.

We are close to all the cultural and recreational activities Minneapolis offers.

You can also take the bus downtown and transfer to light rail to the Airport and Mall of America.

Free Buses in Minneapolis and St. Paul

Campus Connector (note:pdf download) offers free service between the St. Paul, East Bank and West Bank campuses of the University of Minnesota.   Designed for students, but they don’t check student ID. Does not connect to Downtown Minneapolis.

Take a Free Ride on select Nicollet Mall buses (Nicollet Mall stretches from one end of downtown Minneapolis to the other.) Seeing a lot of things downtown? Park at an end of this route for less money! Goes very close to Convention Center.


Bicycle Rental comes in many flavors…

https://www.niceridemn.org/bike_rental_shops/ tells you where to rent for your whole stay.

https://www.niceridemn.org/ is an interesting alternative. For $6 per day, you get access to a bike rental system centered on downtown Minneapolis. NOTE! There is a per trip charge for a trip of over 30 minutes! However you could hop skip and jump all over downtown with these bikes, for the daily or monthly fee.   Closest ride station is a short bus ride to the East from our Southwest spaces! So youcould get a bike there, ride downtown within 30 minutes, and go from one site to another downtown, the museums and Lakes in Minneapolis, and some parts of St. Paul. With trips of under 30 minutes, there is no per trip charge, so it would just be the daily fee of $6.
