Hotels in Minneapolis near TCF Bank Stadium

TCF Bank Stadium Introduction

Set on the University of Minnesota campus, TCF Bank Stadium is an outdoor venue that is home to the school’s Minnesota Golden Gophers football team. From the horseshoe-styled building, you can enjoy expansive views of downtown Minneapolis. Designed to seat over 50,000 people, the venue opened in 2009. One of its highlights is a 20,000-square-foot indoor club equipped with fireplaces, multiple bars, and access to an outdoor level. Notably, the venue's first brick was laid by a 100-year-old bricklayer who worked on the school’s previous athletic venue when it was built in 1924.

Hotels near TCF Bank Stadium

There are several hotels within a 5-minute walk of the stadium, including some wallet-friendly budget options and a hotel directly on the campus. Most of the area’s 3- and 4-star properties, though, are situated about 20 minutes west of the university and include upscale dining options, pools, and classy bars. Though room rates are cheap during the winter, heavy snowstorms are common. It can be very humid during the summer, so it’s best to visit during early fall, when heavy tourist crowds diminish and temperatures (and room rates) drop considerably.
