I'm coming from Australia for a football holiday in December. One of the games I will be going to is the Monday night game between the Bears and the Vikings (this game appealed a lot more to m yesterday when favre was still playing) on December 20.
I have never been to Minneapolis before and to be honest I don't really know very much about the city. I am looking for a good value hotel that is easy to get to the stadium to by public transport. The travel agent has quoted me the Crowne Plaza which appears to be pretty close and seems pretty good value for money. Is this hotel alright to get to the stadium from or should I look at some other hotels?
Also, after the game I will be spending the Tuesday in the city sight seeing before heading out on Wednesday. So somewhere that has public transport handy that I can use to get to areas of interest (and at this stage I do not know what those are) would also be handy too. But easy access to the football is my priority.
Thanks for your help guys, can't wait to see the Vikings beat the bears! :)
