Located at 1101 LaSalle Ave., the hotel is six blocks from HRI’s owned and managed Embassy Suites by Hilton Minneapolis Downtown that will open this September HRI Lodging, LLC, a subsidiary of HRI, will manage the new property.

The hotel has been recognized for its service and consistently averages four-star reviews and obtains a TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Modern ingenuity, local history and curiosity shape the foundation that will soon be home to the new Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin hotel. Expected to open in the fall of 2021, Colorado-based real estate investor and developer McWHINNEY has big plans for this full-service lifestyle hotel.
