“Emery will be instantly woven into the fabric of the Minneapolis community, featuring vibrant immersive spaces that invite guests to develop an emotional connection to the city and people,” said Thom Geshay, Chief Operating Officer, Davidson Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to sharing how Emery embraces the city’s history, while at the same time, ushers in a new era of modern energy that Minneapolis embodies today.”
IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE INSPIRED BY COMMUNITY
Emery’s opening also welcomes a brand-new restaurant, Giulia, featuring Northern-Italian inspired cuisine by local chef, Steven Brown. The first-ever downtown location for Spyhouse Coffee is located off of the lobby and offers the classic coffee and espresso menus the beloved Twin Cities roaster is known for, with the additions of a custom signature blend, seasonal and specialty drinks, and affogato — house made gelato topped with hot espresso.
Guest rooms are elegantly appointed and infused with local artworks by artists such as Shana Kaplov and Edie Overtuf, known for their styles of juxtaposition that is rich with cultural themes. Thoughtfully curated minibars with local products provide a taste of Minneapolis. Guests can also take advantage of a renovated fitness center with Peloton bikes.
PROVOCATIVE DESIGN DUALITY:
The building’s history as the famed Midland Bank in the 1930’s through 1950‘s and other local businesses, lays the foundation for this iconic part of the Minneapolis skyline. Emery’s transformed design embraces the spirit and nostalgia of the past through art deco touches and marble architecture, balanced with fresh energy and the collaborative culture that the city embodies today. The design, led by Studio Mai, is dually inspired with a contemporary mix of custom finishes, high-end amenities and creature comforts.
Offering up 4,500 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, the hotel is inclusive of seven meeting rooms, one private dining room, and the lobby area for a social/flexible space. All seven meeting spaces are named after iconic Minneapolis neighborhoods that inspire and continue to cultivate the city, including Kenwood, Sheriden and the popular North Loop.
Emery’s lobby creates various pockets for guests to take advantage of a fluid and dynamic space they can interact with in different ways. The central “hall” or lobby, defined by rigid linear marble columns, is reminiscent of an indoor/outdoor garden to be enjoyed 365 days a year.
