What it is
An 1897 brick warehouse turned into a Minnesota-inspired hotel, with 124 rooms, a Nordic restaurant, and a rooftop plunge pool, sauna and cocktail bar.
What it isn't
Stuck. Guests have access to loaner custom Handsome bikes for whirling around town on their own two wheels.
What we think
Lofts will never lose their cool. So you can bet these warehouse rooms—made cozy with Faribault Woolen Mills blankets and down duvets on their SERTA Sapphire mattresses; leather wingback chairs; and rainforest showers—will welcome weary travelers for generations to come. Don’t miss a night out on the 6th floor hotel rooftop, where you can both chillax (in the sauna and temperature-controlled, adults-only plunge pool) and rub elbows with the hippest locals at the rooftop cocktail lounge (order the Hewing Manhattan, made with cherry bark vanilla bitters, plus the local cheese board with house-cured meats).
You're here because
The hotel pampers pets like their own; dog amenities include BarkBox Memory Foam dog beds.
You practically salivated when you learned the restaurant’s chef, Nyle Flynn, studied in France on a James Beard Foundation grant. You order sugar pumpkin soup, a seasonal pork sausage with housemade lefse, and a lingonberry sundae before deciding Tullibee’s locavore menu alone was worth the trip here.

The heart of Minneapolis’s Warehouse District, a five block walk from the Mississippi river. While you’re here, a visit to Walker Art Center is practically required; the collection includes 12,000 works by everyone from Kara Walker to Jasper Johns.
