Minneapolis Hyatt Hotel renovation

Hyatt Regency, Minneapolis

When Michael Suomi of Stonehill & Taylor describes the $25 million interior redesign process of the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, he calls it a "multi-part architectural narrative." Included in the story line are themes of industrial production and a broader "Made-in-America" strategy.

Due to its proximity to many of the city's museums, the hoteliers also hope that the Conservatorium also strikes a chord with locals. Arresting as the public spaces of this contemporary-meets-classic hotel are, the interior boasts all the marks of luxury accommodations: restaurants, a bar, spa and wellness center, and 129 guest rooms and suites.
