hotels with large meeting rooms and catering

Am planning a conference at a Minneapolis hotel that would be convenient for business travelers, large enough for a group of 75 - 100 people, would cater lunch, etc., and also have a median price range. Would like to plan this for this fall. Thank you.

Our company has used the Hilton, the Radisson, and the Marriott - all downtown.

The Marriott was amazing this past January. They bent over backwards for us - and the food was superb.

I think you might want to decide "where" to hold the conference first. I agree that downtown is a good central choice, but it's probably cheaper for parking and overall cost to consider suburban locations, too. Most downtown and many suburban hotels have meeting rooms large enough for your needs.

Do you want to be convenient to the airport? Convenience to light rail adds Bloomington to the mix? Is free parking a need/desire? Are you planning any social events around the conference? What is your definition of median price?

Contact Meet Minneapolis too...official convention and visitors association. They have resources to help direct you to ideas, plus will submit a request for proposals to hotels so you can "one-stop shop" lots of hotels, depending on things such as catering abilities, location, price, etc.
