Year-round Minnesota action at The Grand Hotel - a Kimpton Hotel

Near Target Center: Grand Hotel Minneapolis

Minneapolis is a sports enthusiast's dream town. Not one, not two, but five major professional teams play right downtown, within blocks of The Grand Hotel. Not to mention the University of Minnesota's Big Ten action just minutes away.

The sports here get fans fanatical throughout the year in the City of Lakes. Our teams include:

  • Minnesota Vikings (NFL)
  • Minnesota Twins (MLB)
  • Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA)
  • Minnesota Lynx (WNBA)
  • University of Minnesota Golden Gophers
  • Minnesota Wild (NHL)

See riveting basketball at the Target Center, just blocks from The Grand Hotel through the climate-controlled skyway system. Catch a Minnesota Twins game at the nearby Target Field. Walk to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome for football at its best.

Whatever game you attend, you'll have fun and lively company. After all, cheerleading was invented by students at the University of Minnesota way back in 1898, and the shouting has been spirited ever since.

The Grand Hotel is happy to help you with tickets to the next game. You can contact our concierge directly at or (612) 288-8888.
