MINNEAPOLIS—Chartres Lodging Group acquired the Radisson Plaza Hotel Minneapolis and will convert the property to a Radisson Blu after renovations.
The rebranding is scheduled to be complete in 2014.
The 360-room hotel occupies 17 floors of the 36-story Plaza Seven Building. The hotel currently incudes a restaurant and bar, 22,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, access to underground parking and a direct link to the city’s climate-controlled skyway system.
The renovation will include guestrooms and bathrooms; a refresh and expansion of the property’s meeting space; a re-imagined lobby and guest welcome-way; refreshed on-site dining options including FireLake Grill House restaurant; and a rejuvenation of public spaces, corridors and the atrium.
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, which previously owned the property, will continue to manage the hotel.
