Shake Up Your Meeting Breaks at The Hotel Ivy

  • Shake Up Your Meeting Breaks at The Hotel Ivy

    POSTED November 2, 2017

Meeting break time is a must for those visiting hotels for business and The Hotel Ivy is offering packages to really mix up what attendees can do in their downtime. The three unique packages – Hop To It, Fan Zone and Sweet Considerations – provide out-of-the-box experiences that highlight all Minneapolis has to offer.

Hop To It

With 50 craft breweries, Minnesota ranks the No. 10 craft beer-producing state. Groups can take advantage of the state’s limitless and iconic craft beer scene by indulging in flight tastings, food pairings or a dozen other beer-focused activities. Hotel Ivy’s craft beer experts will assist in selecting the finest craft beers for your group from Fulton, 612 Brew, Summit and Surly and pair them with bison burgers, pulled pork, lobster roll and grilled cheese sliders.

Fan Zone

Minnesota is one of the few states that participates in all four professional major league sports and each of the stadiums provides a place for visitors to experience the exciting tradition of attending a sporting event. It's not just about enjoying the sport or the delicious food; it’s about experiencing the excitement of being a participating fan. Highlights of this meeting break menu include soft pretzels with gourmet mustard, freshly-popped popcorn, warm roasted peanuts and house-made cracker jacks.

Sweet Considerations

There are very few pick-me-ups better than a little dose of sugar and there is no better eatery in Minneapolis to provide that sugar rush than Glam Doll Donuts. Not only is their dairy sourced locally, but the Minneapolis-based company makes all of their donuts 100% from scratch. Indulge in variety of donuts including the Darling, Scream Queen, Misfit, Calendar Girl and Showgirl. Top it off with freshly-brewed Starbucks coffee and Tazo Tea service, or assorted soft drinks and juice. 


When I first started in the industry as a corporate event planner, budgets were hefty and guest experiences were top-notch until they weren’t once the market crashed. Thankfully it seems as though now organizations are investing budget dollars back into events to boost customer and employee morale.
