Going to Fitzgerald Theater

We are going to see Prairie Home Companion in late September, and we have never been to Minneapolis-St. Paul before. We'll have a car and will just be in the city for that Saturday. Where would you recommend staying for access to the theater, restaurant(s), sights? Thank you!

The St Paul Hotel Hotel, the Sheraton, or even Holiday Inn.

Plenty of food & sights - what are your interests ?

I've been looking at information about Minneapolis/St. Paul and think the St. Paul Cathedral, the Sculpture Garden, the Stone Arch Bridge, and the Chain of Lakes all look interesting. But with not even a whole day to visit, I'm not wanting to rush around, and we are flexible about what we see. We'll be driving in from the south and leaving toward the west.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Are you lucky enough to be going to their season launch & street party? A true St Paul delight!

No, we'll miss out on that fun. We'll be there the following weekend.

Will we be able to (safely) walk to the theater before and after the show from the suggested hotels, please?

I would focus on one or two close sights, then dinner, then show, then a place for drinks after.

I know Minneapolis better than St Paul. If you book St Paul Hotel, give the concierge a call to get dinner rez and sights ideas.

Thank you! I think I may need to leave home a day earlier so I have more time there.
