Ever wanted to roast s'mores over a fire while reading Swinburne? Such a mash-up is oh-so-very possible at The Commons Hotel. This eight-story structure was reimagined as a geek-chic overnight destination, which is fitting as it is right across from the University of Minnesota campus. The amenities are fit for a scholar, and they include a Book Butler service (they'll pick out some reading for you from a voluminous collection) and interior lobby details that take in images culled from the university archives. Rooms include iPod docking stations, plush bathrobes, and interior design accents like brown leather, blue velvet, and argyle for a touch of the collegiate flavor. Guests also have access to the University of Minnesota's athletic facilities, which are just a short walk away. The hotel prides itself on being handicapped-accessible. The location is right outside the new Green Line, which will take visitors directly into downtown.
