Markzeff transforms Marquette Hotel into Curio Collection by Hilton’s first Minnesota outpost

The converted hotel is the collection’s first Minnesota outpost, and features a locally-inspired design.

In Minneapolis, the Marquette Hotel unveiled its $25-million transformation into a Curio Collection by Hilton property. The converted hotel is the collection’s first Minnesota outpost, and has a locally inspired design from New York-based studio Markzeff.

The 282-room property’s design pays homage to the city’s heritage while keeping modern elements front-and-center. The color palette used includes deep gray, charcoal and blue tones.

Punctuated with open-concept spaces, the hotel lobby is reminiscent of an art gallery. It now has new furnishings, modern elements and textures, ambient lighting, and seating.

The hotel’s new Italian-Mediterranean eatery Jacques is located on the ground floor, replacing Jolliet House. Named for French Jesuit missionary Jacques Marquette, the restaurant can seat 92 guests across 2,000 square feet.
