More About Hotels near Williams Arena and Sports Pavilion...

What is Williams Arena?

Home to the University of Minnesota's Golden Gopher basketball team, Williams Arena has undergone several transformations over the years to become the cutting-edge stadium it is today. New LED scoreboards and state-of-the-art sound systems enhance the stadium experience. 

Which Hotels Have the Best Views Near Williams Arena?

Most of the hotels within a mile of the stadium are 4-star hotels, and most offer decent views of the city skyline. A great budget option is the Days Inn Hotel. It's 0.3 kms from Williams Arena and offers exceptional value.  

What Are the Benefits or Drawbacks from Staying at a Hotel Near Williams Arena?

Staying near Williams Arena means you are closer to the university, which is over the river from the downtown area. This is great for the younger college crowd, but takes you a little out of the city center.

What Do I Need to Know About Williams Arena?

If you planning to buy tickets in the upper deck, be careful. Getting there means walking up a steep staircase, so try to get a seat close to an elevator. Being an older stadium means there's also not much leg room. Otherwise, a trip to Williams Arena is a really fun experience.
