Now Open: Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis

Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis is officially open. Located at the top of the pedestrian Nicollet Mall in the heart of downtown, just steps from the Mississippi River, the 222-key hotel will be led by General Manager Florian Riedel, who began his career as a Four Seasons busser 27 years ago, and has been on the ground in Minneapolis for 10 months building a team of over 300 people to bring Four Seasons service to the Twin Cities.

Located high above the city on the building’s 23rd to 30th floors, 183 guestrooms and 39 suites give way to skyline and river views from floor-to-ceiling windows. In-room features include a private bar outfitted with locally sourced snacks, a coffee maker, plush robes and slippers, Wi-Fi and a 65-inch flat-screen television, besides signature amenities.

“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 sweeping city and river views in two directions,” said Dawn Turbes, the hotel’s director of sales, in a press announcement.

In partnership with Four Seasons, James Beard Award-winning local chef and restaurateur Gavin Kaysen has created two Mediterranean-inspired dining concepts: Mara, a restaurant and bar, and Socca, a street-front café. 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.

Located on the fourth-floor pool plaza, Riva Terrace invites guests to enjoy aperitivo hour and coastal Italian cuisine by Executive Chef Martín Morelli. 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.

Inviting guests and day visitors, The Spa at Four Seasons offers signature rituals inspired by Minnesota’s beauty. Spa experiences are enhanced with natural, plant-based and cruelty-free products. Wellness facilities include an indoor pool; sauna, steam and cold plunge; and relaxation lounge with private spaces. The 24-hour, naturally lit, Harley Pasternak-designed fitness facility is stocked with the latest equipment by TRX, LifeFitness, Peloton and Tonal.

Good to know: Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis is committed to contributing 3,500 hours per year to the community, with a focus on downtown restoration efforts, social justice programs and health and wellness initiatives. Additionally, the hotel prioritizes local sourcing as well as energy, water and waste reduction, which includes eliminating single-use plastics from the guest experience.

Tip: The hotel is offering an “Experience More” deal, inclusive of $100 credit per night per room or $200 per night per suite, with a two-night minimum stay. The credit may be applied to food and beverage or spa.
