4th Street Fantasy…
continues June 20-22, 2014 in Minneapolis, MN

About the Hotel

DoubleTree by Hilton
1500 Park Place Blvd
St. Louis Park, Minnesota 55416

The growth of 4th Street has returned us to a familiar venue that offers a great combination of a convenient layout, restaurant and bar on premises, many nearby food options, reasonable price, and other amenities. We've gotten a few questions, though, so here's some further information for those considering a hotel room.

1) Where are convention events happening?

We'll be using all 6 of the Courtyard conference rooms which are between the elevators and the Dover restaurant.

2) Where's the smokers lounge? Is there any outdoors place to sit and talk?

There will be a gathering place just outside the entrance of the hotel near the Dover Restaurant. Canopies and citronella will be provided. You'll have to provide the good conversation.

3) Where's the ConSuite

Our Hospitality Suite is in Courtyard 1 and 2, next to the main programming space in Courtyard 3-6. It will have food, drinks, and a few tables, like always.

The ConSuite choices will include the usual beverages, savories, tortilla rolls, and sweets.

If there is a gap in the offerings, you have special dietary needs that need to addressed, or you have a suggestion/request, please send us a note so that we can adjust the planning.

4) I live in the Twin Cities - I'm trying to decide between staying at home, and getting a hotel room. What should I know?

One thing many people enjoyed at last year's 4th Street were the music parties and patio conversations - which went late into the night. Having a hotel room means you don't need to drive home when you're tired.

More than that, though, it allows for a continuation of great conversation and at many more times. This hotel has a number of spaces to catch up with old friends, make new connections, or continue a discussion from a panel. And, of course, for introverts, having a hotel room means you can have somewhere to take a short break from those conversations when needed. The hotel also has a pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room, along with other amenities.
