Situated at the edge of the University of Minnesota’s riverside campus, this newly opened retreat is a haven of geekster chicdom. Sudoku puzzles are provided with room-service breakfast orders, the library lounge hosts Words With Friends wine hours, and with the punch of a number on your phone, a Book Butler will wheel a cart of reads to your room. (For business travelers, staffers infuse meeting itineraries with Jenga and spelling bee breaks.) The hotel’s Beacon Public House serves up Minnesota craft beers alongside gastro-fare like bacon-cheddar biscuits and ale-battered walleye. Its patio, featuring a six-seat fire-pit table, is a fine spot to sip cocktails and stave off the summer evening chills.
