At the Nicollet Island Inn, we raise the essence of a traditional inn to new levels-combining the classic and the modern to produce a truly intimate hotel, restaurant, bar, and banquet destination. Featured in USA Today, Conde Nast Traveler, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, the New York Times and many regional publications, the Nicollet Island Inn offers a quiet oasis along a storied river, near the heart of Downtown Minneapolis, one of America's most dynamic cities. Whether big or small, all occasions are special occasions at the Nicollet Island Inn. The Inn offers a variety of private dining options for celebrations of all kinds, from quiet intimate spaces to full banquet rooms.
