Metrodome hotels are not difficult to find in Minneapolis, as there are plenty in and around the city core. It is a domed stadium that is one of the older venues in the National Football League. The Metrodome’s proper name is the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and is home to the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. It was used by the Minnesota Golden Gophers' football team before TCF Bank Stadium was built, and it was also the home of Major League Baseball’s Minnesota Twins until 2009. (They now play at Target Field.) There are plenty of hotels near the Metrodome Minneapolis that cater to a variety of budgets.
The Holiday Inn Metrodome (pictured) is one of the options for affordable yet nice accommodations within very close range of the stadium. It is located at 1500 Washington Avenue South just minutes away from many of the city’s most popular attractions including the Guthrie Theater, Target Field, and of course, the Metrodome. This particular Holiday Inn is actually one of the premiere Metrodome hotels, featuring a wide variety of pleasing amenities and thoughtfully appointed guest accommodations. You will not want for anything when staying at this hotel, which is situated just blocks from the stadium. You can actually see the Metrodome from many of the rooms’ windows. Several of the property amenities at this hotel include a fully equipped health and fitness center, a sprawling indoor pool with stunning, panoramic views of the city, onsite dining and lounge, and free shuttle service to the Metrodome Light Rail Station, a point from which you can access many of the most popular areas and attractions in the city.
The Westin Minneapolis at 88 South 6th Street is another one of the hotels near the Metrodome Minneapolis where you will be treated to a selection of amenities, comfortable and spacious guest accommodations, as well as excellent customer service. It is a surprisingly affordable hotel, especially in light of the fact that it is located in such close proximity of many of the city’s most popular attractions and things to do, as well as premiere shopping, dining, and entertainment. The large marble staircase, impressive 34-foot lobby, and historic artwork make for a memorable experience upon first entering the hotel. The guestrooms and suites are elegantly appointed and feature plush bedding, fine furnishings, and spacious bathrooms.

The Comfort Suites is another viable option for people looking to have a nice stay in Minneapolis without having to break the bank.

Enjoy complimentary wireless Internet access, a swimming pool, fitness room, and 24-hour reception. You do not have to spend your whole vacation budget in order to get a nice room within close proximity of the stadium. Vikings games are very popular, so if you are planning to book a hotel during the NFL season, be sure to try to do so as far in advance as possible.
