Millennium Minneapolis reopens following $22M renovation

The Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal reports that the Millennium Hotel Minneapolis reopened this week following a four-month, $22-million renovation, which included significant upgrades to the hotel's 321 guestrooms, 22,000 square feet of meeting space, the lobby, restaurant, pool and HVAC.

The Millennium, located at 1313 Nicollet Mall, closed for the much-needed renovation in December. It started accepting guests again on Monday, though some of the work won't be completed until mid-May.

Management says that 95 percent of the hotel's roughly 155 hourly employees returned to the hotel following the renovation. Employees were offered bonuses last fall to stay on when the construction started, and then received an additional bonus if they returned.
