Millennium Hotel Minneapolis, a city landmark for the last 50 years, has re-opened after a $22-million-plus renovation. It was closed for the work since December 2012, and had a soft re-opening in April. Work included remodels of all 321 guest rooms and public spaces, adding a club floor and lounge, and a restaurant, North 45° with local craft beers and regional cuisine. Contemporary designs have been added through the hotel’s 22,000-square-feet of function space, hotel officials said. Millennium Minneapolis.jpg

Local materials were used to evoke the surrounding area, including Kasota Stone, which is used in many of the city’s most famous buildings. White marble and birch bark were used for the columns, and Corten steel added texture to various elements of the building, reflecting the taconite found on the north shore.

The hotel has been a landmark since 1963 when it opened as Capp Towers, its iconic dome getting famous when the hotel was featured that year in Life Magazine. For information, visit www.millenniumhotels.com/usa/millenniumhotelminneapolis
