Make Hotel Ivy, a Luxury Collection Hotel, set in the heart of the city near the Minneapolis Convention Center and Target Field, your home base for the big game. The five-star spot woos guests with its 136 plush rooms and 21 suites—we suggest checking into the two-story penthouse perched at the top of the historic Ivy Tower section of the hotel, which features 1,900 square feet of indoor living space, a wet bar, and a private rooftop.
For ways to fill your time before the bowl begins, guests can tap the property’s expert on-site concierge team, whose insider knowledge and VIP contacts enables them to set up unique ways to experience Minneapolis. For an overview of the snow-coated city, Jaddunath-Robinson often books guests into a winter-only helicopter tour that will take them soaring above Twin Cities’ attractions like the St. Paul Cathedral, the Mississippi River, the Minnesota State Capitol, and the St. Paul Winter Carnival, which has been delighting guests of all ages since 1886 (this year’s festival runs until February 10). The tour also flies over U.S. Bank Stadium for some unique photo ops of the new stadium.
To get closer to all of the game-day action, the Hotel Ivy team still has access to Super Bowl tickets, as well as exclusive pregame events and tailgating parties. The Game Day package (starting at $5,995 per person) includes an upper-level ticket and entrance to a pregame party featuring celebrity-chef dining, live entertainment, and at least 25 active NFL players in attendance. Bigger groups can book Hotel Ivy’s Turf Suite package ($475,000), which includes 20 game tickets for a lower-level corner suite (possibly near the players’ bench), catered food and beverages, and other perks.
