  • Delta Hotels by Marriott Opens in Northeast Minneapolis

    Minnesota Debut

    FROM THE Winter 2019 ISSUE

Originally established as a hotel chain in Canada in 1962, Delta Hotels by Marriott opened its 52nd location on June 20 this year in Northeast Minneapolis. After expanding to the United States in 2015, the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Minneapolis Northeast is Minnesota’s first of the brand and represents Marriott’s fastest growing line of hotels yet. 

With 10,000 total square feet of event space, Delta Hotel Minneapolis Northeast can host conferences, holiday parties and business meetings. There are two ballrooms: the Minneapolis Ballroom, a 5,000-square-foot space that can be split into four 1,250-squarefoot sections; and the St. Paul Ballroom, which features a flexible 2,600 square feet. In addition, the hotel offers five other meeting spaces ranging from 275 to 950 square feet that are all named after Minnesota lakes or cities and Twin Cities 400 Tavern—a full-service destination-style restaurant including the private Pullman Dining Room that accommodates up to 52 guests and features décor reminiscent of an upscale coach boxcar.

The hotel offers easy accessibility to both St. Paul and Minneapolis, and includes many unique amenities for travelers and event planners alike. Each of the 246 guest rooms feature a 55-inch smart TV with access to all amenities, USB and regular outlets spread throughout the room, and complimentary bottles of water. Guests have access to a 24-hour fitness room—stocked with towels, hydration stations and complimentary earbuds—and Platinum level members have 24-hour access to the concierge lounge called The Pantry.

“The designers really thought through the whole traveler experience when creating these rooms,” says Claire Holder, director of sales and catering. “The hotel takes the modern-day traveler’s needs into consideration with each aspect. Delta Hotels by Marriott Minneapolis Northeast is simple made perfect.”

Any planner knows that reliable Wi-Fi and networking opportunities are necessary, but here are 10 equally crucial elements for executing successful meetings and events.

1. CLEAR OBJECTIVE Attendees need to know what they’ll gain from the event, and speakers need to know what to prepare for. Once you determine the objective, run all decisions regarding the event through that filter: Do the chosen speakers and breakout session topics all contribute to achieving your event’s purpose?
