“Guests will enjoy a complete transformation of the public areas,
featuring new design elements and décor emphasizing contemporary
silvers, grays and pearls as well as modern aesthetics. We believe this
renovation will make the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington hotel one of the
city’s most popular destinations for leisure and business travelers
alike,” said Jim Waldvogel, general manager.
Guests will be welcomed by new décor and design elements as they first
enter the lobby. A Starbucks Grab & Go was added so guests can enjoy
traditional and seasonal Starbucks beverages daily, as well as fresh
baked pastries, fresh fruit, granola parfaits and other refreshments.
Olive Bar & Lounge, featuring breakfast, small plates, classic entrees,
salads and happy hour specials, was transformed into a contemporary
space to work and play, featuring clean lines with modern
sophistication. A 750-square foot bar serves as the focal point of the
lounge, surrounded by booth and table seating. Three 60” flat screen TVs
line the wall, perfect for enjoying sporting events or the latest
happenings. A window divides the lounge from the lobby area, making it
the ideal place to relax with friends, enjoy happy hour specials with a
coworker or have a casual business meeting.
Voted Best Steakhouse by the Bloomington Sun Current five
consecutive years, the award-winning Bloomington ChopHouse unveiled a
new look to complement the restaurant’s reputation as one of
Minneapolis’ premier steakhouse restaurants. Known as a traditional
steakhouse featuring tender steaks, fresh seafood and attentive service,
guests can still expect the same high-quality menu they are accustomed
to, in a fresh, relaxing and enjoyable environment.
The hotel’s 5,040 square-foot American Ballroom was completely renovated
with new carpeting, decor and contemporary chandeliers. Dramatic silver
and bronze chandeliers accentuate the revitalized space, with a grey and
natural palette that provides a more modern look to the meeting space.
Foyer space includes new furniture with enhanced technology, including
work desks with power and USB outlets.
HHonors and VIP travelers will be welcomed by a completely renovated
Executive Lounge. Still serving a full American breakfast in the morning
and an assortment of appetizers, small plates and premium beverages and
cocktails in the evening, the remodeled lounge also includes new
furnishings including a mix of relaxing lounge and task-oriented,
communal seating. Added power and USB outlets were also added to provide
guests with a relaxing, convenient VIP guest experience.
“We are excited to unveil the new renovations to our guests and the
community as we maintain our position as one of Minneapolis’ premier
hotels,” added Waldvogel.
