Standing in the Emery's lobby, where live greenery thrives and natural light streams in, it's hard to believe that this used to be Hotel Minneapolis. Emery is still an Autograph Collection hotel, like Hotel Minneapolis was, but it is, for all intents and purposes, a new, not just renovated, hotel. 

 

The Emery Hotel recently opened its doors to guests, just in time for visitors of the NCAA Final Four tournament. Originally Midland Bank, the building was constructed in 1906, and the new hotel space is fully embracing its rich history.

 

If the on-the-edge-of-your-seat basketball games or endless events around Minneapolis aren't enough to keep you interested in the NCAA Final Four tournament this weekend, the newly announced menu items sure will be. U.S. Bank Stadium's food and beverage provider, Aramark, just released its Final Four menu, and it's delicious enough to turn anyone into a basketball fan.
