About the Hotel


DoubleTree by Hilton
1500 Park Place Blvd
St. Louis Park, Minnesota 55416
1-800-245-9190

The DoubleTree is a great venue that offers a combination of a convenient layout, restaurant and bar on premises, many nearby food options, reasonable price, and other amenities.

The continued growth of 4th Street has us changing what part of the DoubleTree we use this year. We'll be in the Terrace Ballrooms which are on the second floor on the far side of the hotel from the main hotel registration desk. For those of you who have been attending the convention for many years, you might remember this as the space we used for sunday brunches a few times.

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 4 of the Terrace ballrooms which are on the second floor on the opposite side of the hotel from the main registration desk.

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 Terrace Ballroom 3, between the main programming space in Terrace Ballroom 1-2 and the Annex space in Terrace Ballroom 4. 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.
