  • All paper collateral will be removed from guest rooms
  • Upon check out, rooms will be cleaned and not re-rented for 24-48 hours 
  • Reduced daily housekeeping for multiple night stays. Contactless deliveries for any additional items needed
  • Door key cards disinfected after use

Running Aces Hotel combines the best elements of a Minnesota experience, offering a modern Scandinavian design with the ‘Up North’ feel of your get-away cabin. Expansive corridors, high ceilings and the largest rooms in the category are just a few of the touches that make this property special. The rooms facing our track have the unique opportunity to watch drivers and their horses race for the finish line or watch live music from their hotel room window.
Deluxe hotel amenities include a business center, workout room, indoor pool, room service dining, a hotel bar, a guest laundry facility, and of course, free WiFi. In addition, a complimentary Grand Start continental breakfast will be served daily in the dining area off the lobby. The entire facility is smoke-free making it the only hotel of its kind in Minnesota. 
Running Aces Hotel meeting and event space is available in any combination of three rooms, appropriately named Jack, Queen and King. With a variety of catering options available, it is the perfect option for corporate meetings, weddings, receptions, reunions and other group activities. Located just outside the banquet space is a private patio and fire pit offering a full view of the racetrack. This area provides a private yet entertaining setting for groups to watch horse racing.
The hotel features many local art pieces including: 
Adam Turman – Custom Running Aces illustration, Screen prints in guest rooms
Rita Dungey – Original acrylic on canvas
Matthew Rucker – Original oil painting 
Jesse Gerhard – American Craftsmen, Handmade pieces throughout the lobby
Sisyphus - Computer controlled kinetic table
WDI - Custom Wood design plaques 
Running Aces offers something for everyone: gamers, horse enthusiasts, family and business travelers and most of all local twin cities residents looking for a fun night out or two of entertainment.
Running Aces Hotel is part of GrandStay Hotel collection and will be the 35th GrandStay hotel in their collection.
