The Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington hotel, located near the Mall of America and managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts, completed a $2-million renovation of the property. The remodeling introduces a contemporary design throughout the hotel and includes renovations of the lobby area and entrance, food and beverage outlets, meeting space and HHonors Executive Lounge.
A Starbucks Grab & Go was added to the hotel lobby, while the Olive Bar & Lounge was transformed into a contemporary space to work and play. A 750-square foot bar serves as the focal point of the lounge, surrounded by booth and table seating. Three 60-inch flat screen TVs line the wall. A window divides the lounge from the lobby area.
The hotel’s 5,040 square-foot American Ballroom was completely renovated with new carpeting, decor and contemporary chandeliers. Silver and bronze chandeliers accentuate the revitalized space, with a grey and natural palette that provides a more modern look to the meeting space. Foyer space includes new furniture with enhanced technology, including work desks with power and USB outlets.
HHonors and VIP travelers will be welcomed by a completely renovated Executive Lounge. Still serving a full American breakfast in the morning and an assortment of appetizers, small plates and premium beverages and cocktails in the evening, the remodeled lounge also includes new furnishings including a mix of relaxing lounge and task-oriented, communal seating. Added power and USB outlets were also added to provide guests with a relaxing, convenient VIP guest experience.
