Hotel Indigo has expanded its presence in the midwestern United States with the opening of Hotel Indigo Minneapolis Downtown. Located in the heart of Downtown Minneapolis, the 218-room hotel offers convenient access to the area’s trendy shops, innovative dining scene, and celebrated venues like the Orpheum Theatre and First Avenue. Each Hotel Indigo property is unique, and Hotel Indigo Minneapolis Downtown reflects its surrounding neighborhood’s individuality and optimism.
The hotel is housed in the original Northstar Center, built in the 1960s, and features subtle nods to old Minneapolis, such as stained glass, photography, and other items from the original Northstar Hotel. The hotel’s design scheme features a sleek mid-century modern aesthetic with textural woods, plaid wall-coverings in moss green, and works from local artists and vinyl records paying homage to the city’s rich music history.
The Hotel Indigo brand is widely celebrated for restaurants and bars that are neighborhood gems – lively spaces that bring visitors and locals together. Star Bar & Bistro, the American bistro by local restaurateur Kim Bartmann, draws diners in with an enticing menu with a French flair. Dishes are prepared with ingredients from local purveyors, including Peterson Craftsman Meat, Larry Schultz Organic Farm and DragSmith Farms. Inspired craft cocktails enhance the cuisine and feature local spirits from Tattersall Distilling Company and Norsemen Distillery.
Additional hotel amenities include a fitness center overlooking the city with cardio and weight-training equipment as well as a business center and marketplace in the lobby. Beyond the hotel’s doors, guests can discover the neighborhood’s iconic theaters and music venues, such as State Theatre or The Armory, as well as attractions like Loring Park, the Sculpture Garden at The Walker and U.S. Bank Stadium.
