  • We visited this place and the Cathedral of Saint Paul in the same day. The Cathedral of Saint Paul is definitely bigger, but the Basilica of Saint Mary is very astounding in its' own right. I would de...  more »

  • Beautiful place, and friendly staff in the church too. We generally only come here for Christmas and Easter, and go to our local church other times. It can get busy during special occasions.
  • This absolutely kills me to write this, may the Lord have mercy on my soul. The Basilica was a home for several years. I love the Catholic Church and am very grateful for all she has done for me. Please do not become discouraged by my review. There are plenty of excellent Catholic Churches in the cities that teach sound doctrine. Here at the Basilica the singers take center stage during mass. The homilies the last three weeks have been about race politics. Long story short I am changing my membership to another parish. I do not go to mass to hear about race, gender acceptance, sexuality acceptance, etc. Telling people to accept these sins is not compassionate it is sinister, nefarious, and the sows the seed of confusion we are seeing across America and the world today. The Basilica has fallen far and is in very deep trouble. They are teaching in direct opposition to what the Lord taught his disciples. Beware, the wolves are leading the sheep to the slaughter. I literally got up and walked out during the intentions and now I have go to another mass tonight.
  • Really beautiful! Very peaceful experience. 😌
  • They were closed on this snowy day at -23C degrees wind chill.
  • Christmas Eve service. One word...magical.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
