Your Home Away from Home:

Hilton Minneapolis

Be at the center of all of the fun when you book your stay at the Hilton Minneapolis, the official headquarter hotel of ASTRA's Marketplace & Academy! You'll have access to the climate-controlled skyway system, which gets you just a short 5-minute walk from the hotel. 

Why Book with ASTRA?

We recognize that you have a choice when you plan your conference experience. Booking your home away from home with ASTRA at designated hotels ensures that you won't miss a minute of the fun as we reunite in Minneapolis! Booking with ASTRA also helps us secure discounted group rates for attendees and exhibitors and provide you with outstanding and timely service through our relationships with the contracted hotels.

Beware of Unauthorized Hotel Service Providers

The only information about hotels for ASTRA’s Marketplace & Academy will come directly from ASTRA. It has come to our attention that several exhibitors, attendees, and members have been contacted by housing vendors who are offering to provide room rates and hotel services for ASTRA’s Marketplace & Academy. These companies are NOT affiliated whatsoever with ASTRA or Marketplace & Academy

Be cautious of any companies that:

  • Call you directly and claim they are official housing partners and have the best rates for Minneapolis. ASTRA will never call you directly to solicit hotel reservations.

  • Claim to be affiliated with ASTRA by offering discounted hotel rates, which are often too good to be true.

  • Ask you to provide your contact information and credit card details and require full prepayment in advance.

  • Claim to have availability at their advertised hotels, but will take your money for the rooms, and later cancel without refunding to you.
