The Star of the North beckons travelers and the Twin Cities community to stay and play next to the mighty Mississippi River and vibrant North Loop neighborhood
Rising 36 stories above the city and firmly rooted in its dynamic downtown, the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis is now open.
The Hotel boasts 222 spacious rooms, all with unobstructed, inspiring views; new dining concepts by local award-winning chef and restaurateur Gavin Kaysen; more than 16,000 square feet of event space, and an entire floor dedicated to wellness and fun – complete with an evolving and sustainable spa, an indoor pool with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an outdoor pool on the city’s largest terrace.
“From the beginning, this project has been envisioned as much more than a hotel. It’s a gathering place for the local community as much as a place for visitors to stay,” says Christian Clerc, Four Seasons President – Hotels and Resorts.
Located high above the city on the building’s 23rd to 30th floors, 183 guest rooms and 39 suites give way to the sweeping skyline and river views from floor-to-ceiling windows. Smallwood, the interior designers of the Hotel’s public spaces and accommodations, complemented each offering with bright and calming colors, crisp linens, marble table tops set against woolen carpets, and half-wall wood panels accented by brass details. Numerous in-room features include a private MyBar outfitted with locally-sourced snacks, a Nespresso coffee maker, plush robes and slippers, premium Wi-Fi, and a 65-inch flat-screen TV. Plus, guests enjoy signature Four Seasons Beds, twice-daily housekeeping, same-day laundry, overnight shoeshine, 24-hour in-room dining, and more.
“The lavish 30th-floor Presidential Suite is our most stunning accommodation, perfect for a family or entertaining with its full kitchen, two bar areas and up to three bedrooms – but our River-View Executive Suites are proving to be very popular too. With open layouts, they’re studio-style suites that feel both intimate and spacious at the same time, thanks to the sweeping city and river views in two directions,” notes Minnesota native Dawn Turbes, the Hotel’s Director of Sales.
Destination Dining and Bar Scene
In partnership with Four Seasons, two-time James Beard Award-winning local chef and restaurateur Gavin Kaysen has created two new Mediterranean-inspired dining concepts: Mara, an every-occasion restaurant and bar, and Socca, a cheerful street-front café. Offering restorative experiences at the intersection of land, sea, and craftsmanship, menu offerings are rooted in Chef Kaysen’s travels through the south of France and skills honed during his time working alongside Michelin-starred Chef Daniel Boulud.
The Hotel’s third dining option is an oasis of sunshine and socializing. Located on the fourth-floor pool plaza, Riva Terrace invites guests to enjoy aperitivo hour and coastal Italian cuisine by Executive Chef Martín Morelli. With views of the city skyline, it’s a nearly year-round destination for locals and visitors alike thanks to heating elements, a hot tub, and cozy fire tables.
Beverage Director Adam Witherspoon and sommelier Paul Hennessy further elevate these dining destinations as well as Twin Cities makers, brewers, distillers, and crafters through their Mediterranean-meets-Minnesota cocktail enterprise and global wine program.
In addition to food and beverage pairings, global design leaders AvroKO complete the dining experience with reflections of both the Mediterranean coast and countryside as well as Minnesota’s mill history and continued commitment to industry and innovation.
Holistic Wellness, Featuring an Evolving and Sustainable Spa Concept
Open to hotel guests and day visitors, The Spa at Four Seasons presents signature rituals for body and soul inspired by Minnesota’s natural beauty. Director of Spa LeAnne Latham’s nourishment-through-nature concept includes experiences both indulgent and effective, such as the Honey Haven Ritual featuring a full body scrub and body wrap followed by a pampering massage. Just the Two of Us is an opportunity to share a spa experience with a friend or loved one and includes a restorative soak and hour-long massage in the intimate songbird suite. Evolving with the seasons, spa experiences are enhanced through the creative reuse of florals and with natural, plant-based, and cruelty-free products.
The full-floor wellness facilities also include an indoor pool; sauna, steam and cold plunge; and a relaxation lounge with private spaces. The 24-hour, naturally lit, Harley Pasternak-designed fitness facility is stocked with state-of-the-art equipment by TRX, LifeFitness, Peloton, and Tonal.
Meeting and Mingling
The Twin Cities’ premier address for weddings, events, and business meetings, Four Seasons offers 10 unique venues – including the city’s largest outdoor terrace – across 16,500 square feet of event space. Every room boasts up-to-the-minute technologies and neutral décor, offering maximum flexibility for wedding couples, hosts, and planners to make each space their own.
Meeting planners, event hosts, and wedding couples are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
