Minneapolis, MN – HRI Properties, LLC (HRIP) has completed a multi-million dollar refresh at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis. Under the guidance of Dallas-based design firm Studio 11 Design, the $3.5 million transformation of the 229-suite hotel includes guestrooms, the lobby, restaurant, business center and meeting space.

The hotel lobby boasts a carefully selected collection of contemporary furnishings, ambient lighting and cozy seating that is equally modern and inviting.
“Our main focus is to enhance the guest experience. We are confident our guests will enjoy the updated look and feel of our hotel from the moment they walk in the door,” said Don Cook, the DoubleTree’s general manager.
All guestrooms received soft seating sectional sofas, new carpeting, new 50” TVs, and contemporary artwork and lighting. Bathrooms were also upgraded with backlit vanity mirrors as well as freestanding, lighted make-up mirrors.
Other highlights include: upgraded elevators, a complete remodel of the full-service Starbucks onsite and a revamp to the hotel’s restaurant Lot 57, which received an improved breakfast buffet, new carpet and reconfigured seating to open up the spacious dining area.
Recognized for its service, the hotel consistently averages four-star reviews and boasts the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Centrally located in the business district, the hotel is four blocks from the Minneapolis Convention Center and nearby attractions include the city’s best dining, theatres, museums and entertainment venues.
