17 Fabulous One-Stop Weekend Escapes
Minneapolis: Chambers Art Hotel
Bring a healthy dose of curiosity about art -- and time to take it all in -- when you visit Chambers Art Hotel in Minneapolis, a boutique lodging with 60 rooms and suites just off Nicollet Mall.
At the mall, spend the afternoon browsing art galleries, bookshops and Macy's (and return in the evening for live music at Dakota Jazz Club). Back at the hotel, stroll the lobby and halls to view dozens of pieces of contemporary artwork. Even if you haven't heard of the artists displaying work, you'll like reading the placards created by the hotel's full-time art director. Original art also appears in each of the stylish black-and-white-decked rooms (877) 767-6990.
