ATLANTA—InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel offering views of the Mississippi River and Downtown Saint Paul skyline.
Jason Moskal, VP, lifestyle brands, The Americas, IHG said, “The InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand is entering into an exciting growth period, beginning with this hotel in Downtown Saint Paul and continuing into the spring of next year with the reopening of the InterContinental Barclay hotel in New York City. Offering a true global view, the InterContinental brand portfolio of hotels is twice the size of its luxury brand competitors, and we are confident this hotel in Saint Paul will provide our guests with a luxurious, first-class experience in the Minnesota capital city.”
The multimillion-dollar renovation of the historic property showcases mid-century modern design and decor in all 410 guestrooms and public spaces. There is also 43,000 sq. ft. of meeting space across 10 meeting rooms, an executive boardroom and two grand ballrooms with ample adjunct pre-function spaces. The Great River Ballroom can host up to 1,000 people.
Joe Nayquonabe, Jr., CEO, Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, said, “This building has been a fixture in Saint Paul for over 50 years, and we are committed to the continuous evolution of this historic property. With the extensive renovations complete, we are excited to bring the InterContinental brand of luxury to Minnesota’s capital city.”
