Stahl Construction Completes Hyatt Place Hotel Renovation in Downtown Minneapolis
Minneapolis, MN; January 28, 2014 – Stahl Construction recently completed an extensive $15 million design/build occupied renovation of a 240,000-square-foot hotel in Centre Village in Downtown Minneapolis. Previously a Comfort Suites, Stahl Construction was hired by the Summit Group to update the property from its 1980s design to a more contemporary Hyatt Place. This hotel is the third Hyatt Place hotel in Minnesota for Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
Stahl Construction partnered with the hotel ownership, design team and subcontractors to complete this massive undertaking in a compressed timeline. The focus resulted in a successful project as the hotel was turned over on time and under budget.
“I am grateful for the efforts given by the entire team on all sides of the fence. This is truly a Cinderella story. The conversion has been nothing short of phenomenal. I believe this to be the nicest Hyatt Place in the country,” stated Larry Trowbridge, Director of Construction for Summit Hotel Properties.
A major new feature hotel in the Twin Cities, the Hyatt Place Minneapolis Downtown is now the closest hotel to the future Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium and is the first project completed in the redevelopment of that area. Designed by Michael Monn Architects, the hotel features an atrium-style layout with 213 suites, meeting amenities, workout facility, indoor heated saline swimming pool, restaurant and bar lounge. The hotel commissioned the installation of a 184” diagonal dropdown, HD-format projection screen in the lounge area. This 3D capable screen is one of the largest of its kind and will be used for sports viewing and presentations.
