Hewing Hotel in Minneapolis prepares to open

US: The Hewing Hotel, the latest project from Aparium Hotel Group, will open in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighbourhood.

The 125-room hotel, which will open on the site of a former 19th century North Loop warehouse at the corner of Washington and Third Avenues North, is a collaboration between Chicago-based Aparium Hotel Group and boutique hotel developer Fe Equus Development.

Its design is “inspired by North Loop’s logging history, Minnesota’s Nordic heritage, and a Northwoods cabin aesthetic”. Rooms will combine Scandinavian design with elements inspired by Minnesota cabin culture. The hotel’s name is a reference to an old logging process and pays homage to the industry’s history in Minnesota.

The hotel will also have a chef-driven restaurant with cuisine “inspired by Minneapolis’s woods and lakes,” a rooftop terrace and bar, and a social club.

It will be followed in North Loop by a Radisson Red, the first to open in the US, which is scheduled to welcome its first guests in late autumn. Other Radisson Red properties will subsequently open in St. Paul, Portland, and Miami.
