Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Faribault Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Faribault, MN discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Faribault hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Until 1745, the area now known as Faribault was occupied by the Wahpekute band of the Dakota tribe. The tribe was driven south after territorial disputes with the Ojibwe, a move which allowed settlers to enter and establish trade. The city is named for Alexander Faribault, the son of a French-Canadian fur trader and Dakota woman. Faribault fueled much of the area's early settlement beginning in 1826 when he opened a fur trading post by the Cannon River. Faribault used his knowledge of the Dakota culture and language to improve tribal relations and help more settlers move to the area.

Today, Faribault is considered one of Minnesota's most historic communities. The Alexander Faribault House was built in 1853 and is the oldest framed structure in the area, still in its original location on the edge of downtown. Faribault's economy relies on small-town services, retail shops, and light manufacturing. The city is located about one hour south of Minneapolis and offers easy access to Interstate 35 and Minnesota Highways 3, 21, and 60.

No matter your reasons for visiting Faribault, you'll want to find the right hotel that allows you to explore everything this historic community has to offer.

When to Visit Faribault, MN

Although summer is peak tourist season, the best time to visit Faribault is from June to August when high temperatures hover around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Pleasant weather, farmers markets, and festivals attract many visitors who hope to experience Faribault's historic charm. Be sure to reserve your hotel well in advance to score the best deal.

If you'd rather not pay a premium for your hotel room, consider visiting Faribault in the spring or fall. The shoulder seasons can feel quite chilly, especially in the evenings, but wearing light layers will ensure you can enjoy the outdoors. To enjoy the best offseason weather, visit in May or September.

Minnesota receives much snow in the winter, which decreases the number of visitors to the state. If you find yourself visiting from December through February, however, you'll be happy to know that area businesses are still open despite the travel challenges. Even so, try to book refundable flights and hotels in case inclement weather cancels your plans.
