JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America opened its doors today, bringing with it a new level of luxury as one of the most significant hotel developments to take place in the Twin Cities area. The JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America featuring 342 beautifully appointed guestrooms is the JW Marriott brand’s first in Minneapolis and is part of Mall of America’s recent luxury expansion.
"The Twin Cities region is particularly well-suited for our continued growth in the U.S.,” said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President, Luxury Brand Management & Guest Experience at Marriott International. "Minneapolis-St. Paul is one of the fastest growing areas in the Midwest and the expansion of Mall of America, designed to showcase luxury retail and hospitality concepts, is in alignment with JW Marriott's brand ethos."
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Cedar + Stone, Urban Table is led by celebrated Executive Chef Everton Clarke and Executive Sous Chef Laura Bartholomew. The menu offers refined, crafted dishes inspired by Minnesota’s natural roots and local culture. All dishes at Cedar + Stone, Urban Table incorporate ingredients locally sourced within 200 miles. The local theme carries through in the restaurant’s décor as brick and wood, artistic jasper stone prints and regional photography create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. A private dining room accommodates up to 14 guests and the restaurant offers an extensive wine list with over 1,500 bottles prominently on display.
The Lobby Lounge offers a wide selection of local craft beers on tap, imbibes from local distilleries and wineries, and small plates. House-made cocktails include beverages from JW Marriott’s Cocktails with Purpose program, which was created in collaboration with New York-based Tippling Bros. with the guidance of nutritionist Keri Glassman. The menu offers specialty ‘garden to glass’ cocktails highlighting fresh, seasonal and healthy ingredients, meeting guest demand for healthier options without sacrificing taste.
The hotel features nearly 20,00o square feet of event space, including a ballroom that accommodates more than 1,700 guests. One of the largest event spaces in the Twin Cities, the premier venue includes full audio/visual capabilities, staging, and stunning, jewelry-inspired crystal chandeliers. The hotel features an innovative Event Lounge – a highly curated social nexus inspiring guests to relax, regroup or experience live culinary demonstrations. Floor- to-ceiling windows provide an open-air feel in the hotel’s third-level pre-function space and natural lighting also abounds in all second-level meeting rooms.
The guest experience is enhanced with a fitness center, indoor pool, Executive Lounge, world-class restaurant and state-of-the-art meeting and events spaces. The hotel is ideally located in Bloomington, only minutes from Minneapolis - St. Paul International Airport and just a 15-minute drive from the Twin Cities themselves. In keeping with the JW Marriott brand’s core values, the hotel is designed to creatively deliver an authentic, inspiring environment and warm, intuitive service that will be highly appealing to both leisure and business travelers.
