Description - Amenities - Attractions - Activities - Shops and Services - Transportation
This studio is on the bottom floor / garden level of a century old building. However, as you can see from the photos, it does not look a century old!
It also has direct sunshine through a south-facing window every day of the year.
The clean bright quarry tile flooring and white walls complement the crisp modern decor.
We humorously refer to it as the Hobbit Haven because of ceiling height-- seven feet overall, and six foot, one inch where a beam crosses the space.
Comfortable furnishings help you relax at the end of a long day. Climate control for heating and air conditioning is controlled by you.

HDTV four kinds of input: HDMI = High-Definition Multimedia Interface, USB - Universal Serial Bus, Personal Computer / RGB - Red Green Blue, and the coaxial cable that inputs the signal from the cable tv company.

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 two blocks away from our Southeast spaces! So you could get a bike there, ride downtown in just a few 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.
HOURCAR is the smart way to drive.
