Minneapolis Just Paisley Park Best Place to Stay

Visiting Minneapolis just to go to Paisley Park next autumn

flying in for 2 or 3 nights, Have looked at the Clifton, any reviews please

or something similar, not sure of a good walkable area?

Advise on where to stay, not interested in the Shopping Mall.

Prefer smaller accom not big chains, but will not have a car

so will need to use public transport or taxi.

Paisley Park is in Chanhassen, an outer suburb of Minneapolis. The only bus service is going to/from downtown Minneapolis at limited times. The area is not walkable (no sidewalks) and fall weather may be cold and wet. There is not really much else to do in Chanhassen, especially if you will not have a car, and Paisley Park itself does not have much in it. Keep in mind that Prince took his privacy seriously and so his house is in somewhat of an isolated area and was never meant to be a tourist attraction. I would advise to stay in downtown Minneapolis (or maybe look at an AirBnB in Uptown or by one of the lakes if you want something more intimate) and Uber to/from Paisley Park.

As gweilo845 says, Paisley Park is in a very residential, 3rd tier suburb, with no public transportation.

I found an earlier posting that may be helpful. https://www.tripadvisor.com/FAQ_Answers-g429…

There is good info here too http://prince.org/faq/8_Minneapolis_FAQ

There are two hotels near Paisley Park you could stay, Country Inn & AmericInn. They are chains, but they are close. There are grocery stores, Target store, and restaurants within walking distance.



You would have to shuttle/Uber to the hotels from/to the airport. But once there it would be easy to get to Paisley Park.

If you do stay there, you might find a show at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater you like.
