Map & directions

our area map

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 cab/Lyft/Uber.


Having your own room gives you site to store your stuff, a place to park your paraphernalia, a closet to contain your costumes, and some space to sleep. Sleeping sometime over the weekend is a highly recommended, and less travel time over the weekend gives you more time to be at the con.

You can book a room via this special link at the Hilton website. Room rates are the same as for MarsCon 2022: $99.00 + tax per night (run of the house). A few Junior Suites will be available at $123.00 + tax per night - call the local Hilton phone number (952-854-2100) to arrange that. The cutoff date for the MarsCon 2023 rate has been extended to Friday, March 3, 2023! Important note: if you follow the booking link above you must use the 'Edit Stay' clickie near the top of the page to adjust your checkin date to be no earlier than Thursday the 9th and checkout date no later than Monday the 13th - then you will be offerec the $99 + tax rate.


Our contract with the hotel calls for free parking for MarsCon attendees. Quoting the hotel —“Oh, by the way we are going to turn off the parking for the weekend you are here. No need for a code or scan.” You may safely ignore the parking lot signs that say you need to pay to park. We expect adequate parking at the hotel (cross fingers).

Please do not park at the Mall of America and expect to find your car when you return. You should be able to find a space in the hotel parking lot. Hint: if you book a sleeping room you only have to park your chariot once.
