The Days Inn in nearby Roseville has relatively inexpensive hotel rooms, from $55-95. This is an inexpensive choice if you are driving or renting a car because you will need transportation to & from the conference site. There really are no hotels within walking distance of the St. Paul Campus. However, if you stay in a hotel on the Minneapolis campus, (there is another Days Inn on University Avenue), you have access to an intercampus shuttle that will take you to the St. Paul Campus and drop you near the conference site. (Other hotels on the Mpls. campus are the Radisson University & the Holiday Inn Metrodome. Both are within walking distance of the intercampus shuttle. All hotels near the Minneapolis campus offer a much greater selection of nearby restaurants. If you decide to stay in the Holiday Inn Metrodome, you are close to the train (Route 55: Download file) which takes you to downtown Minneapolis, the airport, or the Mall of America.
