Renovations to start soon with hotel opening projected for Fall 2022
IHG® Hotels & Resorts, announced the signing of the Hotel Indigo Minneapolis Northstar Downtown in Minneapolis, MN. The 17-story Hotel Indigo will showcase 218 guest rooms, a neighbourhood restaurant and bar, a fitness centre, and a business centre. The hotel will be located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, within close proximity to the city’s most prominent corporate and leisure demand generators.
The current location for the Hotel Indigo first opened in 1962 as an independent hotel named the Northstar Hotel. This hotel is part of the integrated, mixed-use Northstar Center complex that also includes office, retail, and a 955-space parking garage. A transformative renovation of Northstar Center, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is underway to modernize the office component and create a public area with skyway-connected retail and food and beverage amenities. Upon completion, the Northstar Center complex will include 220 apartment units and approximately 500,000 square feet of office space.
Julienne Smith, Senior Vice President, Development IHG, Americas, said: “We are thrilled to be continuing to grow with Great Lakes Management Group, one of our most strategic hotel owners who has opened several highly desirable IHG branded hotels across the US. With its unique style representative of the local area and neighbourhood dining, this Hotel Indigo will be a great fit for the downtown Minneapolis market.”
Neil Densmore, President, Great Lakes Management Group, said: “We are excited to be partnering with IHG on the first Hotel Indigo in Minneapolis. This hotel will be ideally situated among many major attractions to the area, and guests will be pleased with the changes to the entire development that is underway.”
Inspired by the colours, textures, history, buildings, and people that make up each neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo celebrates these elements to immerse each guest in a uniquely local experience, inspiring their curiosity from arrival to their in-room stay, dining, and beyond.
There are currently 129 Hotel Indigo properties open globally, including the recently opened Hotel Indigo Miami Brickell and Hotel Indigo Columbus at Riverfront Place in Georgia, with another 116 in the global pipeline.
