Studio Mai helms transformation of Hotel Minneapolis into The Emery

The former Hotel Minneapolis has reopened following a full transformation and rebrand to The Emery. 

Located at 215 Fourth Street South in the city's downtown neighborhood, the 10-story, 229-room Autograph Collection hotel has views of the city skyline and access to attractions via the skyway, such as the US Bank Stadium and Target Field.

The lobby of the property is reminiscent of an indoor/outdoor garden with greenery.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The guestrooms have a midcentury vibe, playing homage to the property’s past as Midland Bank. The design was led by Studio Mai. There are also local artworks in guestrooms by artists such as Shana Kaplov and Edie Overtuf, as well as minibars with locally produced products.

A standout in the redesign is Giulia, a new Italian restaurant with a bar-centric flexible space for both intimate and sociable dining and drinking in a casual atmosphere. Emery also has the first ever downtown location of the Twin Cities roaster, Spyhouse Coffee. In the evening, Spyhouse transforms into a lobby lounge serving beer and wine.

The property also redesigned its fitness facility with Peloton bikes.

Emery also has 4,500 sq. ft. of meeting space, inclusive of seven meeting rooms, one private dining room, and the lobby area for a social/flexible space. All seven meeting spaces are named after Minneapolis neighborhoods, including Kenwood, Sheriden and the North Loop.
