Minneapolis ever was deserving of the title “design capital,” it
certainly is now." Metropolis magazine, May 2005
Skyway in downtown Minneapolis
Minneapolis is unique in many ways, but the skyway system is one of our most striking, one-of-a-kind assets. When
the weather turns sour, you can use the skyway system to get where you need to go.
One floor above ground, this system links buildings together with enclosed walkways. It connects most of downtown
Minneapolis in climate-controlled bliss.
Most downtown hotels are connected to this unique system, and you'll have access to fabulous downtown shopping
including Gaviidae Common and City Center. So when the temperature plummets or the rain falls, ditch the coat in
the hotel room. Explore downtown Minneapolis through more than 7 miles of glass-enclosed skyways.
