ATLANTA – (hospitalitybusinessnews.com) InterContinental Hotels Group announces the opening of the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel, ushering in a new era of luxury for Minnesota’s vibrant capital city. Offering remarkable views of the Mississippi River and downtown Saint Paul skyline, this hotel represents the growth and continued investment into the downtown business district.
Jason Moskal, Vice President, Lifestyle Brands, The Americas, IHG said: “The InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand is entering into an exciting growth period, beginning with this hotel in Downtown Saint Paul and continuing into the spring of next year with the reopening of the InterContinental Barclay hotel in New York City. Offering a true global view, the InterContinental brand portfolio of hotels is twice the size of its luxury brand competitors, and we are confident this hotel in Saint Paul will provide our guests with a luxurious, first-class experience in the Minnesota capital city.”
The multi-million dollar renovation of the historic property showcases mid-century modern design and décor in all 410 guest rooms and public spaces. There is also 43,000 square feet of meeting space across 10 meeting rooms, an executive boardroom and two grand ballrooms with ample adjunct pre-function spaces. The Great River Ballroom can host up to 1,000 people, making it an ideal location for weddings, gala dinners and conferences.
The hotel also offers a new dining experience at the Citizen Supper Club restaurant. With a modern twist on the supper club concept from a bygone era, guests can sip on midcentury cocktails, wine, beer or spirits at the bar or enjoy dishes crafted by executive chef John Occhiato. The menu at the Citizen Supper Club offers a variety of dishes, some more traditional while others have a more contemporary flavor.
Joe Nayquonabe, Jr., CEO, Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, said: “This building has been a fixture in Saint Paul for over 50 years and we are committed to the continuous evolution of this historic property. With the extensive renovations complete, we are excited to bring the InterContinental brand of luxury to Minnesota’s capital city.”
