BLOOMINGTON, MN—A Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with an affiliate of McGough Development for a Hyatt Regency hotel located here. Hyatt Regency Bloomington Central Station is expected to open in early 2016 and will be managed by Aimbridge Hospitality.
The 302-room Hyatt Regency Bloomington Central Station hotel is the centerpiece of Bloomington Central Station, a transit-oriented, mixed-use urban village. The development will also include residential, retail and Class A office components. The Bloomington Central Station will be connected via light rail to the Mall of America and its numerous shopping and entertainment attractions, both airport terminals at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus, the Metrodome and Downtown Minneapolis’ business and entertainment districts.
Hyatt Regency Bloomington Central Station will feature 17,000 sq. ft. of meeting and pre-function space, including an 8,250-sq.-ft. ballroom. The hotel will also include a three-meal restaurant, a bar and lounge, an indoor pool, a fitness center, a market and coffee shop, and business center.
“The City of Bloomington is world famous for being the home of Mall of America, which attracts visitors from around the globe, and we are thrilled that Bloomington Central Station will feature another world renowned brand, Hyatt Regency,” said Greg Munson, EVP of McGough Development. “We believe that leveraging the strength and innovation of the Hyatt Regency brand as part of the mixed-use complex will attract business and leisure travelers from across the region.”
