Le Meridien Chambers, Minneapolis
Why We Love This Hotel
- Art lovers can enjoy free admission to the Walker Art Center (located a mile away) with their hotel room key
- Modern amenities like iPad docking stations and laptops are available upon request
- Le Méridien Chambers sits directly across the street from the historic Orpheum Theater and is a six-minute walk from the Target Center
Situated in the cultural epicenter of the Twin Cities, Le Méridien Chambers feels "part art gallery and part boutique hotel" (U.S. News & World Report). In addition to nearby Walker Art Center and Orpheum Theater, the Minneapolis Institute of Art is only 1.5 miles away; plus, the over-200-piece Brunet modern art collection in the hotel adds to the sophisticated vibe.
Rooms are decorated in a distinct white, black and grey palette speckled with pops of color. Modern amenities like smart work stations, walk-in rainfall showers and heated bathroom floors compliment Le Méridien's contemporary look. LCD flat-screen TVs also come standard, and Wi-Fi is available for a fee.
Downtown Minneapolis has a vibrant restaurant scene, but guests should consider spending a night in at the hotel's Mercy Bar and Dining Room, which according to its executive chef, Mike Rakun, specializes in "American food, simple but executed to the nines." Despite Mercy's casual menu, up to a dozen varieties of oysters are on offer each night. For further pampering, guests can order 24-hour room service, as well as schedule an in-room massage.
