Hotel Options

This year, we have three great hotel options for you to choose from. All connected by the convenient Minneapolis Skyway, the three hotels are just a short walk from one another, all centrally located in downtown Minneapolis. Shuttle service will also be provided from the Marriott Minneapolis City Center and The Marquette Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton to the Hilton Minneapolis for the California Caucus meetings, and from the convention center back to the Marriott and the Marquette after the NEA RA concludes for the day.

The Hilton Minneapolis offers double/double rooms for a special CTA price of $169/night plus tax. This hotel will be host to the California Caucus meetings, and connects via skyway to the Minneapolis Convention Center, as well as downtown shopping, dining and entertainment. The Hilton’s spacious guest rooms offer scenic downtown views and reflect a sophisticated urban finish.

The Marriott Minneapolis City Center offers king rooms and a very limited number of double/double rooms at a competitive price of $169/night plus tax. Located just 0.4 miles from the California Caucus location, and 0.7 miles from the Convention Center, the Marriott offers excellent service and a premium downtown location. Every room features stunning views of the Twin City skyline.

The Marquette Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton offers king rooms and a very limited number of double/double rooms at a great price of $142/night plus tax. This hotel offers a chic and luxurious base for your travels in Minneapolis. The newly renovated guest rooms feel posh and residential with spacious layouts, modern décor and custom furnishings. Just 0.2 miles from the California Caucus location, and 0.5 miles from the Convention Center, the Marquette hotel is a great option.
