Our Host Hotel

Once again MarsCon will be held at:

Hilton Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Mall of America
3800 American Blvd E
Bloomington, Minnesota
USA 55425
Tel: +1-952-854-2100
Map & directions

The Hilton is mostly accessible by mass transit... it‘s about 4/10ths of a mile from the American Blvd LRT stop. There are also shuttles to the LRT stop, the airport, and the Mall of America. If you have trouble walking (perhaps due to luggage or snow) the best transit option is probably bus or train to MoA, then take the hotel shuttle.

Parking Overflow

Parking Overflow will be the same as last year. There will be a shuttle running to and from the open air lot between Crowne Plaza and Airport Hilton. Do not park in Crowne Plaza's ramp or risk a ticket or tow. Carpooling is a good idea. Or... ride the LRT and hike from the American Blvd stop as described above.

Hey you, get a room!

Having your own room at MarsCon gives you a place to park all the keeno stuff you bought in the Dealers’ Room and a place to don your amazing costume(s). You can even sleep in it. As a bonus, your room key is your key to the hotel pool and hot tubs. Woo! Rooms are $105.00 plus taxes per night—you can call the hotel and ask for the MarsCon rate or follow this handy link to book online. Either way, your own room to sleep in at MarsCon equals more hours you can spend awake at MarsCon. The deadline is February 2, 2017.


If you were at MarsCon 2016 the layout will be familiar. The Hilton first floor houses hotel amenities and MarsCon‘s Art Show, Props Room, and Science Room:
