Hyatt Regency Minneapolis Completes $25 Million Renovation
MINNEAPOLIS—Hyatt Regency Minneapolis announced the completion of a $25 million renovation of the hotel's guestrooms, suites, public areas, and restaurants. The renovations were funded and conducted by a joint-venture of affiliates of Starwood Capital Group, Haberhill and Hyatt Hotels. READER COMMENTS
“We are excited to welcome guests to a completely transformed world-class hotel that reflects the unique heritage of Minnesota,” said Randy Thompson, general manager, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, in an announcement. “With a fantastic location in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and a stunning new design, Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is an exceptional choice for savvy business and leisure travelers.”
New York-based Stonehill & Taylor was responsible for the architecture and interior design. The firm set a clear goal to support North American manufacturing with the majority of the design product made within a 500-mile radius of Minnesota. "We are proud to complete a project of this size and aesthetic quality with most of it made in North America," said Michael Suomi, principal and VP interior design at Stonehill & Taylor. "We think the design of Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is a true celebration of history of manufacturing in this country and the region." Approximately 80 percent of the furnishings were produced in the U.S. and Canada.
The renovation includes an expansive stone fireplace framed by rustic wooden logs, which was inspired by the historic timber milling industry of Minnesota. Surrounding the fireplace is a sunken-living room with split-timber walls and furniture, light fixtures, and carpeting in earth tones. Natural materials like wood and yarn are integrated to give a handmade feel to the furnishings. A giant log has been turned into a seating element with three seats carved into it with Scandinavian-style seatbacks.
Another highlight of the renovation is the new Prairie Kitchen & Bar, a 5,500-square-foot new restaurant specializing in locally grown and seasonal items that evoke the Scandinavian and farming heritage of Minnesota.
The hotel’s 533 guestrooms and suites features a color scheme of indigos, cool grays and warm gold tones. The hotel features suites, king, queen, and double rooms, as well as double queen beds. New living room furniture consists of leather chairs and walnut desks.
