High-End Airport Hotel Bridges the Gap
- Oct 17, 2018
InterContinental has opened a new signature hotel near Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, the first property to be attached to the airport via skybridge. The team behind the project includes developers Graves Hospitality and IREC, designer RSP Architects and general contractor PCL Construction.
The 291-key property includes a luxury spa, three restaurants, courtyard with firepit, fitness center and 30,000 square feet of event space. All hotel rooms feature a modern design with warm, neutral tones contrasting with stone and wood finishes and gold accents.
On the 12th floor, which also hosts the Altitude Observation Bar, there are two spacious suites—the 1,865-square-foot Wingspan Suite and the 1,383-square-foot Pinnacle Suite—both of which offer panoramic views. In addition to the top-floor bar, guests have access to La Voya, a French Brasserie, and Bradstreet Crafthouse, a gaming hall-style restaurant.
The space designated for meetings and events is divided into 19 rooms, the majority being located on the second floor of the property. The largest one, the Passport Ballroom, has more than 10,000 square feet and can seat up to 800 people.
The InterContinental MSP is approximately 10 miles from the downtown areas of both Minneapolis and St. Paul and 5 miles from Mall of America. Its launch comes less than two months after the opening of Staybridge Suites near Miami International Airport.
