Four Seasons planted its final flag in the Twin Cities with the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel in Minneapolis. Based in Atlanta Little wood led the design of public spaces and 222 housing units, while AvroKO designed the F&B spaces to channel the Mediterranean coast and countryside as well as the legacy of Minnesota’s factory industry.
The hotel is home to the Mara Restaurant and Bar and the Socca Café, both reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Echoing the softness of the landscape, olive hues define Mara, which is fitted with a massive open kitchen hearth. Minnesota references, including gold-leafed tubular shapes featured alongside woodworking and textiles from local artisans, also permeate the concept. “As Minnesota is celebrated for its outer beauty, it was gratifying to be able to bring more inner beauty to the Minneapolis culinary scene,” said Lexie Aliotti, Co-General Manager of AvroKO’s New York office. “We wanted to highlight the same wealth of experience generated by the landscape inside a magnificent hotel-restaurant.” Riva Terrace, located in the pool plaza on the fourth floor, completes the hotel’s F&B range.
In addition to over 16,000 square feet of event space, the Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis features an entire floor designed by a personal trainer Harley Pasternak. The wellness facility includes a sustainable spa, 24-hour fitness center, indoor pool lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a large deck anchored by an outdoor pool.
Light, soothing tones adorn the spacious rooms and suites, which also abound with marble tabletops, wool carpets, and mid-wall woodwork accented with brass. On the 30th floor, the sumptuous Presidential Suite has a full kitchen, two bar areas and three bedrooms.
