Hut, hut, price hike! 16 most expensive Super Bowl rentals in the Twin Cities

itemprop

Could be yours for $10,000 per night Airbnb

To stay in the Twin Cities on any of next February’s final three Sundays, the average nightly rate on vacation rental website Airbnb is about $151. On Sunday, February 4, however, that number skyrockets to $680.

The cause? Super Bowl price-gouge fever. 

As U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis gets set to host the NFL’s 52nd annual championship game, Twin Citians are prepping to fleece wealthy visitors. The Official CP Take is ... go for it! Us slick small-towners gotta line those coffers somehow, baby, and it's apropos to do so during a garish spectacle of $5 million ads and $25 million quarterbacks. 

Super Bowl bloodletting is in full swing over at Airbnb, where around 110 area properties are currently available at $915-plus for a one-night stay. The following Sunday, on the other hand, offers just 24 options in that range. For our listacle purposes, we set the February 4 cut-off point at an obscene $4,000-plus per night, which yielded the following 16 rentals.
