Hotel Accomodations

Nestled in the heart of campus just a stone’s throw from Coffman Memorial Union and the Gophers’ stadium, we are home team central for golden get-togethers. Our lush lake house landscape is dotted in forest green, woodland toile, as well as Prince-ly details of custom paisley and a little red Corvette to bring you home. From meetings in town to campus meetups, the lobby is lounge-central for student hang time or some serious air hockey tournaments. Roving food carts serving local flavor (‘sota stuffed burritos, hand crafted hot cocoas and all-star spirits) drift amid the cozy communal tables, dramatic fireplace and woodsy backdrop.
