Four Seasons opens property in Minneapolis
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has opened a property in Minneapolis.
The hotel is located in a 36-storey tower on the building’s 23rd to 30th floors.
The property’s 183 guest rooms and 39 suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows with unobstructed views of the city and river, as well as interiors of marble tops, wood panels, brass details and woollen carpets.
The 30th-floor Presidential Suite is the hotel’s top accommodation, featuring a full kitchen, two bar areas and up to three bedrooms. River-View Executive Suites offer open layouts and a studio feel.
Two-time James Beard award-winning local chef and restaurateur Gavin Kaysen has created two new Mediterranean-inspired dining concepts at the hotel: restaurant and bar Mara and street-front cafe Socca.
A third dining option, Riva Terrace, is located on the fourth-floor pool plaza and features coastal Italian cuisine, aperitivo hour, a hot tub and cosy fire tables.
A whole floor is dedicated to wellness, home to an indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, steam and cold plunge pools, a relaxation lounge with private spaces and a 24-hour, naturally-lit fitness facility stocked with equipment from TRX, LifeFitness, Peloton and Tonal.
Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis also offers 10 venues for weddings, events and business meetings, including what Four Seasons claims is the city’s largest outdoor terrace.
The property has committed to contributing 3,500 hours per year to the community, with a focus on downtown restoration efforts, social justice programmes and health and wellness initiatives. It is also prioritising local sourcing as well as energy, water and waste reduction, which includes eliminating single-use plastics from the guest experience.
Four Seasons president Christian Clerc said: “From the beginning, this project has been envisioned as much more than a hotel. It’s a gathering place for the local community as much as a place for visitors to stay.
“Working with our esteemed owner-partners United Properties, whose commitment to their home city continues to inspire us, our passionate team is proud to offer elevated service and style in this important centre of business, leisure, culture and community.”
General manager Florian Riedel said: “We are incredibly excited to open our doors to community members and travellers from near and far.
“In the months leading up to opening, we have made so many connections, thanks in large part to our locally-recruited staff who can’t wait to share their love of Minnesota with visitors, while forming even closer bonds with our neighbours and colleagues throughout the Twin Cities.”
