Minneapolis’ newest luxury hotel features Tavola, a new farm-to-table Italian restaurant
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (August 2018) – The Elliot Park Hotel, a new 168-unit luxury hotel at 5th Avenue at 9th Street in downtown Minneapolis, will open on Thursday, September 20, 2018. Set to become a distinct downtown destination, the completion of the eight-story hotel is the final component of a comprehensive, mixed-use block development that also features Kraus-Anderson’s new home office, a 17-story HQ residential tower and Finnegan’s microbrewery.
Built by Kraus-Anderson (KA) and developed by Wilkinson Corporation, the upscale hotel is a member of the Marriott Autograph Collection®, featuring a unique design, inherent craft and a direct connection to the community. Hotel amenities include a fireside lounge, event space, meeting rooms and a fitness center. Coury Hospitality will operate the hotel.
The Elliot Park Hotel also introduces Tavola, a farm-to-table Italian restaurant designed to be inviting to both locals and hotel guests as a gathering place. Tavola will feature pizzas, pastas and steaks, and a wide variety of wines and craft cocktails.
Hotel valet service and the highly visible restaurant both have dedicated entrances off 5th Avenue.
Designed by ESG Architects, the hotel https://elliotparkhotel.com/ is created to fit into the fabric of the existing historic Elliot Park neighborhood. The property is a key part of a full block urban redevelopment that builds on the City of Minneapolis’ East Town vision to transform Portland Avenue and Fifth Avenue into widened vibrant, pedestrian oriented streetscapes, connecting Elliot Park to the new Commons Park and the Mill District.
“It’s been extraordinarily rewarding to see the vision of our hotel and the entire KA Block become reality,” said Mike Harral, vice president of development for Wilkinson. “This development has been a huge success for Wilkinson, thanks in large part to the long list of partners that have been involved with the design and construction. We are very excited to join the Marriott Autograph Collection and to begin operations on September 20th.”
A Grand Opening celebration is planned for October 3, 2018.
