Triton Hospitality Group has acquired The Marquette Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in downtown Minneapolis and has appointed Evolution Hospitality as manager of the property. Based in Santa Monica, California, Triton was founded in 2021 by hospitality and investment veterans John Murphy and David Parsky to acquire underperforming hotel assets. 

Built in 1970, the hotel underwent a full transformation of all 281 guestrooms and suites, public spaces, food and beverage outlets, and meeting spaces as well as rebranding as a member of Hilton’s Curio Collection in 2017. The 25,800 square feet of function space is spread across 19 rooms, including Windows on Minnesota.  

Triton plans to invest about $4 million to reimagine the hotel’s food and beverage outlets, add Topgolf Swing Suites, make aesthetic enhancements to Windows on Minnesota (a venue situated on the 50th floor of the IDS Center), transform the fitness center and install an energy-efficient, guest room HVAC system.

New concept Everywhen Burger Bar debuts.

Centro Restaurant Group opened its latest multi-concept bar and restaurant on August 4. The 15,000-square-foot location is home to the group’s second Centro—an abbreviated version of Vivir and its newest concept Everywhen Burger Bar.

 

At Chankaska Creek Ranch, Winery & Distillery, the biggest allure isn’t the event center, where hundreds can mingle under its rafters, lofted ceiling, and two-tiered chandeliers. It’s not the barrel room, where up to 75 guests can converse amid the barrels lining the walls. Nor is it the myriad other spaces, including the creek-side tent with its floor-to-ceiling paned windows or the rustic atmosphere of the spirits room with its corrugated metal bar and pendant chandelier. 

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom.
