    Need Advice

    My fiance and I are making our very first trip to Minnesota this December to see the Vikes play the Seahawks. I need to know what is the best hotel to stay out that is close to the Metrodome. I was looking at either the Holiday Inn on Washington Ave or the Best Western on 8th St.

    Which hotel would be more convienent to stay out to watch the game?

    I've heard tailgating is at Washington Ave so I'm leaning more towards that one right now.

    Some of you veterans that have done this before let me know some info, ok. Thanks!

    Nice one TexPack -- how many packers games have you been to? I bet none since you are a fair-weathered packers fan who roots for the Cowboys when no one is looking. So I guess either team you root for you end up still living a homosexual lifestyle.

    If you really mean the "best" hotel, I am sure it is neither of those. I stayed in the Best Western last fall. It is OK, but nothing real special.

    I'll check around, but a really good hotel downtown will probably run you $150/night.

    I would personally do the holiday inn on washington ave since its close to the metrodome, i think in walking distance, no need to park at the stadum zoo :lol: and holiday inn aint that bad of a place to stay compared to others.

    Oh my gosh, TNT...do you speak with an English accent and say stuff like "Fascinating"? Oh wait...that's Orbitz gum. Never mind.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    Thanks for the help -- right now I think I want to stay at the Holiday Inn. They want 100 bucks a night to stay there, does that sound right or too high?
    Let me know so I can go ahead and reserve a room!
