Some hotel suggestions for the June 2023 Conference

There are quite a few hotels in the area, but here are some within a 10 minute drive of the church where the conference will be held, fairly reasonably priced and include breakfast:

  • La Quinta Bloomington West 5151 American Blvd. W
  • Best Western Bloomington/ Edina 4201 American Blvd W
  • Holiday Inn Express Hotel 7770 Johnson Ave S

There are many other hotels near I-494 and hwy 100 which is close to the church. Even hotels near Mall of America are less than a 15 minute drive to the church. I have tried to suggest the most reasonable ones, which is a bit challenging since every time I visit the website it seems the price has changed. The church address is 3200 Colonial Way, Edina, MN
