Minneapolis and the term luxury aren’t commonly associated with each other, but that’s changing — the city is home to Hotel Ivy (one of two Forbes-rated properties within the state), and it’s redefining Minneapolis as a upscale destination for groups and meetings.
Hotel Ivy is worthy of visiting in its own right. Suitably, Hotel Ivy blends old and new — the property’s famous tower was completed in 1930 (as part of an unfinished church), but remained in disrepair until its transformation into a hotel 2008. The hotel also offers the only Penthouse offering in the city, and a team of seasoned Curators available to give guests the ultimate in exclusive offerings for groups throughout the city.
- Limitless Luxury: Groups who book this program receive exclusive access to the Hotel Ivy’s Curator program for a weekend of surprise and delights. Guests will work with the curators in advance, and they’ll create a completely customized weekend itinerary for the group, with the guests having no insight into what is coming next. The itinerary can be a mix of wellness activities, spa treatments, VIP dining experiences at the city’s top restaurants, to over-the-top experiences such as a helicopter tour of Minneapolis at night, a backstage meet-and-greet at the symphony, a private yacht experience on a lake, and more. There is no limit to what Hotel Ivy’s curators can do, and this offering will show guests there is no limit to luxury at Hotel Ivy.
- Backstage Minneapolis with Hotel Ivy: Music and art are a big part of Minneapolis’ culture, and many travel from all over to experience the city’s finest first-hand. From the Minneapolis Orchestra, to the Pantages Theater, to the Orpheum and beyond, there city touts itself as one of the leading theatrical cities in the country. Hotel Ivy will tailor an exclusive backstage experience throughout Minneapolis, customized to the groups interest in theater, music, museums, and of course providing secret insider hots spots and under-the-radar locations throughout the cities. An example experience include:
- Party like its 1999: The Hotel Ivy has created a super personalized, luxury experience to give guests insight into the famous singer, and the greater musical scene that currently exists in the Twin Cities. This experience includes a use of a Tesla for the weekend and a private Prince guide who can take guests on a tour of Prince’s Minneapolis, including a private tour of Paisley, park, a stop at Glam Slam, First Avenue and 7th Street Entry, and a show at the famous Dakota Jazz club.
