Courtyard Minneapolis West
St. Louis Park, Minnesota
Shingobee provided construction of a new Courtyard by Marriott hotel in St. Louis Park, MN, on a site adjacent to the existing Minneapolis Marriott West on Wayzata Blvd. Construction occurred during 2017, and the hotel opened in time for the Super Bowl 2018, which was held in Minneapolis.
Owner CSM Corporation planned a six-story hotel with lobby and guestrooms on the ground level and five levels of guestrooms above, with an enclosed walkway connection to the existing Marriott. Guestroom total is 142 rooms. The structure is five levels of wood framing over one level of precast concrete. The building is approximately 81,000 total square feet, with:
- 12,500 square feet of lobby, dining, and public space
- 1,400 square feet of conference and meeting space
- 67,100 square feet of guest room space
The existing entrances and parking areas were realigned, and coordination took place with the existing Marriott hotel, which remained open throughout building construction.
