For 2023...

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 probably bus or train to MoA, then take the hotel shuttle.

Hey You, Get A Room!

Having your own room gives you site to store your stuff, a place to park your paraphernalia, a closet to contain your costumes, and somewhere to sleep. Sleeping sometime over the weekend is a good idea, 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 is Thursday, Feb 16, 2023.

Parking

Parking continues to be spotty at best. We will work with the hotel to line up additional space, but we strongly suggest ridesharing/cab/Uber/Lyft/LRT. Hint: if you book a sleeping room you only have to park your chariot once.

Travel Tips

At the risk of repeating ourselves, we recommend carpooling or mass transit to reach MarsCon. But if you do drive and find the Hilton parking lot is full, there will be overflow parking (somewhere).


MarsCon is a fan-run science fiction convention for all ages held every March in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area.
