Nicollet Island Inn

Stay in the heart of Minneapolis on an island hugged by the Mississippi river. 

Downtown, and yet tucked away. Historic, yet definitively modern. The Nicollet Island Inn strikes the perfect balance from its perch on Minneapolis's Nicollet Island. The structure was built in the late 1800s as the Island Sash & Door Company. The building has had a range of inhabitants over the years before becoming one of the Twin Cities's most beloved restaurants and inns.

Eat and drink

The Nicollet Island Inn’s award-winning restaurant is a favorite among guests and locals alike.  Consistently named the “Most Romantic”, “Best Hotel Dining”, and “Best View” by local and national publications, the Nicollet Island Inn is one of the most iconic dining destinations in a city known for excellent restaurants. The Nicollet Island Inn’s kitchen specializes in classic American cuisine — bold steaks and chops, delicate seafood, a variety of luxurious soups, bright salads and tantalizing appetizers.

And more

Every detail—from antique appointments and stained-glass windows to hand-carved woodwork and a glass-enclosed elevator (with the original operator’s seat)—harkens back to a time when street cars roamed the by-ways of a town still in its infancy.
