Jacuzzi Suites downtown Minneapolis
With areas of the state averaging between 70 and 34 inches of snowfall annually, Minnesota lives up to its reputation as a blisteringly cold landscape. Average winter temperatures also dip as low as 16 degrees in the state's southern portion, near such heavily populated areas as Minneapolis and St. Paul. As a result, some hotels in the region offer whirlpool suites, providing visitors with a means for relaxing and defrosting after battling the elements.
Located one block from the Mississippi River, The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel (marriott.com) lies within a former train depot from the late 1800s. The hotel features an on-site ice skating rink and indoor waterpark, complete with four swimming pools and a three-story waterslide. Some suites feature 12-foot ceilings and views of the downtown skyline, while the Spa King Room offers a whirlpool bathtub.
The Marquette Hotel (marquettehotel.com) is one block from the outdoor Nicollet Mall and within walking distance of the Warehouse District, which offers numerous restaurants and bars. Located on the hotel's top five floors, the executive suites include whirlpool tubs. The hotel also hosts a Sunday brunch atop the neighboring 50-story IDS Center, providing panoramic views of the city via floor-to-ceiling windows.
In downtown St. Paul, the Crowne Plaza St. Paul Hotel Riverfront (cpstpaul.com) features whirlpool suites complete with CD players and robes. The hotel also offers rooms with views of the Mississippi and sleep advantage facilities, or guest rooms located on quiet zones and outfitted with eye masks and sleep CDs. The lobby's Restaurant 11 Martini's & Pizza provides a happy hour.
The Best Western Kelly Inn St. Paul Hotel (bestwesternstpaul.com) remains the closest hotel to the state capitol building, with some government offices located inside the hotel. The whirlpool suite features a two-person whirlpool and six-person conference table. Guest rooms facing north offer views of the capitol, while south-facing facilities provide vistas of St. Paul's Cathedral and downtown.
