The Twin Cities. Flour City. "Minnie." Whatever you call it, this Midwest metropolis is no slouch. Big sports teams, big water, and big culture come together to create a funky urban sprawl, offering a theater on every corner and cocktails on a Ferris Wheel (yes, it's a real thing). Between digging into a variety of cuisine, park hopping, and brew sipping, you'll need a Minneapolis vacation rental that can keep up. A Stay Alfred travel apartment is just the ticket: All the privacy of a classic vacation home with the consistent excellence a tip-top hotel.
The Friendliest Neighborhood in the Twin Cities
You'd be surprised to learn that the North Loop used to be a dusty warehouse district. Not that you'd be able to tell, really – apart from the architecture, this district has fleshed out into one of the hippest neighborhoods in Minneapolis (making a Stay Alfred travel apartment at the Paxon hip by proxy). When you're looking for the party after the party, this is where you come. Trendy restaurants and bars surround two of the Minnie's top sporting arenas/concert venues, and are interspersed with dance clubs, shopping, and a really awesome Bob Dylan Mural.
An Urban Haven at The Paxon
A Stay Alfred travel apartment at the Paxon lives up to its name—fun fact: "pax" means "peace" in Latin—by providing an open, relaxing space made for R&R. Sweat it out in the 24-hour fitness center, then cleanse with a dip in the pool and a steam in the sauna. Put your pitmaster skills to the test on one of the communal grills, or put the finishing touches on your big presentation in the business center. Prefer to stay in for the big game? The outdoor seating area even has TVs!
Peaceful Vacations Aren't a Myth
Yes, you go on vacation to relax and explore and live your best life, but let's face it: Vacations can be stressful. A little hotel room with itchy sheets and weird art does not always put one at ease. Neither does picking lint off of quarters because – ugh – you have to do laundry and the shared machines only take coins. Or using your bed as a desk...and a dining table. A Stay Alfred travel apartment takes the best parts of a hotel (the professional management, the uncluttered cleanliness), adds in the best parts of a private home (like a washer/dryer you don't have to pay to use), and then sprinkles in a dash of 24/7 guest service. Because sometimes you need that and other times you don't, and that's cool – we're there just in case.
