This skyway-connected luxury mixed-use development features the redevelopment of the historic IVY Tower in the heart of vibrant downtown Minneapolis next to Orchestra Hall, The Nicollet Mall and the Minneapolis Convention Center. 136 hotel rooms and suites, Ivy Spa Club, as well as 92 luxury residences join IVY Tower to create a unique luxury experience.

Imparting an air of understated elegance and chic, the hotel's accommodations will project the spacious comfort of a private residence, offering an exceptional experience with state-of-the-art amenities, imported fine Italian linens and custom furnishings. The limestone bathrooms with Ivy Spa Club's signature line of bathroom products and silky bathrobes include deep soaking tubs and separate glass-enclosed showers. The Presidential Suite offers 2,000 square feet of luxury on two levels with a memorable view of downtown Minneapolis.

The 17,000-square foot Ivy Spa Club offers 14 treatment rooms including dedicated couples suites and hydrotherapy rooms, steam rooms, saunas, co-ed whirlpool, a cold plunge, Vichy and Water Tile showers, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. The 4,000-square foot white-glove meeting and banquet facilities present an ideal venue for small meetings, executive events, custom weddings and themed parties. Residents have all the services of a luxury hotel at their fingertips. From 24-hour room service to weekly housekeeping calls and valet parking, no wish will be unanswered.

The authentic character of IVY Tower made this luxury development a natural fit for Starwood's Luxury Collection. Wischermann Partners led all contractual negotiations with Starwood Hotels Worldwide, guiding the design process and providing technical services during the construction process. Wischermann Partners opened Hotel IVY February 21, 2008.
