Tel: 612 767 6900

With more than 200 works of modern art on display and just 60 rooms, Chambers is either a hotel acting as an art gallery or vice versa—you decide. Whatever the verdict, it's shockingly trendy, remarkably austere, and yet pleasingly comfortable. The arctic-cool tone of the place is established behind the front desk, where a Damien Hirst skinned bull's head floats starkly in a tank of formaldehyde, and continues as you travel down a dim corridor to your room, past a video art installation showing the work of William Wegman and others on dozens of monitors. The service, though less than efficient, is delivered with unfailing Midwestern goodwill; rooms are spartan but have pampering touches such as heated bathroom floors and beds as soft as ermine. The excellent Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant and the blue-flamed fire in the lobby offer warmth and sustenance in the coolest venue of one of the country's coldest climes. The Rooftop Bar is included among the 2007 Hot List Nights.

When to go: Year-round, although Minneapolis's deep freeze generally lasts from December through March.
Which room to book: A Deluxe Studio for room to stretch out.
Amenities: 24-hour Room Service, Bar/lounge, Gym
