Nicollet Island Inn
On an island in the Mississippi River, in a circa 1893 building, this upscale boutique hotel lies across the bridge from downtown Minneapolis, 1 mile from the Guthrie Theater.
Elegant rooms come with plush en suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, free WiFi, iPod docks, and city, park or river views.
A country-chic restaurant and cozy piano bar with period stained-glass windows serve American fare. There’s also an outdoor patio overlooking the river.
