Minneapolis: A Year-Round Sports Destination
Minneapolis is a sports-lovers paradise - offering year round spectator athletic events to enjoy or opportunities to get outdoors and participate yourself.
As a guest of The Grand Hotel, you're just moments away from the largest sports venues in the region - Metrodome, Target Field and Target Center. Within a 10 minute walk via the connected Skyway network you too can be cheering on our professional football's Vikings, baseball's Minnesota Twins or professional basketball's Timberwolves or Lynx. And don’t forget to cruise on out using one of our two on-site bicycles, available to use throughout your stay at the hotel.
Join the fun and cheer yourself into a fan-fueled frenzy at the 64,100 seat Metrodome. The famous Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome is only minutes from The Grand Hotel Minneapolis, and is the only stadium in the country that has hosted the Super Bowl, the World Series and a NCAA Men's Final Four Basketball Championship. In addition to being the home of the Minnesota Vikings, the Dome also plays host to:
- University of Minnesota Golden Gophers
- High school and small college sports games
- Rollerdome public inline skating
- Supercross, Monster Truck and Snowcross motorsports events
All the excitement is just under a mile from our downtown hotel. Walk the distance direct from our hotel lobby via the Skyway, take a taxi or go around the corner and catch a #14 or #94 bus for a ten-minute ride.

With nearly 40,000 seating capacity, Target Field is one of the top sports arenas in the world and is just moments away from The Grand Hotel. Our downtown Minneapolis hotel is a boutique oasis just blocks from this world-class ballpark. Walk the climate-controlled skyway or stroll the lively streets to see Major League Baseball's Minnesota Twins.
With spectacular views of the city skyline, Target Field is a Minneapolis must. Visit MLB's website to find out the Twin's schedule at Target Field.
See riveting basketball at the 20,500 seat Target Center, just blocks from The Grand Hotel through the climate-controlled skyway system. Target Center is home to the NBA Minnesota Timberwolves and WNBA Minnesota Lynx basketball teams.
