With more than 50 events booked before its opening, the hotel is poised to make a positive impact in the South Loop and the local economy


The new Hyatt Regency Bloomington-Minneapolis, located in the Bloomington Central Station district, is seeing event and meeting volumes above typical ranges. When the hotel opened a little more than a month ago, the sales team had already booked more than 50 events from area businesses and organizations.


“Since the opening, meeting and event volume has been above expectations,” said Bently Kriewald, Hyatt Regency’s general manager. “Some of the feedback we are getting is that our fresh contemporary décor, tie to the area, unique approach to dining, along with the latest technology and convenient location are key reasons they are choosing us.”


The hotel works with leading Minnesota companies and many Fortune 500 companies, both locally and nationally, such as Wells Fargo, Best Buy, CHS Inc., General Mills, Medtronic, Dairy Queen, U.S. Bank, Ceridian, Health Partners and Toro and many more.


A big draw, Urbana Craeft Kitchen & Market and Bar Urbana, offers indoor, park and patio seating. Executive chef Paul Lynch has designed a versatile menu that appeals virtually to everyone, at any time of day, seasonally connecting guests with the best Minnesota has to offer.


“What a concept – sitting on a patio at a hotel and looking at a park versus busses and other buildings,” said the hotel’s executive chef Paul Lynch. “There isn’t any other venue in the Bloomington area that can match what we have here at Urbana and that’s what’s really going to make us unique.”


Recently, more than 200 meeting and event planners attended private tours designed specifically to answer all of their questions and to showcase the venue. Attendees were able to tour the ballroom, meeting rooms, view all the various room configurations, tour outdoor spaces and indulge in food from Urbana Craeft Kitchen & Market. One of the bigger draws to the property is its free private parking, along with its easy access to the Blue Line Light Rail and airport, which are important attributes for any conference or meeting.


"The new Hyatt Regency in Bloomington has been a great addition to the south loop area, east of the famous Mall of America,” said Bonnie Carlson, president and CEO of the Bloomington Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Meeting planners are raving about the state-of-the-art technology, great service and the inviting décor, and have given it their stamp of approval by booking meetings so quickly.”


Great comments are not in short supply on TripAdvisor® either. With a five star average, guests are impressed with the atmosphere, service, guest rooms and amenities. One meeting planner said ‘she could not have had a better experience.’


“We’ve been astounded by the number of people interested in the property,” said BethAnn Wiberg, Hyatt Regency’s director of sales and marketing. “We gave more than 100 hard hat tours before the hotel opened and we’ve continued with five exclusive grand opening events showcasing our fabulous product.”


With nearly 16,000 square feet of multi-purpose meeting and event space, Hyatt Regency Bloomington-Minneapolis accommodates a variety of configurations. From the stylish Central Station Grand Ballroom to smaller breakout rooms, to high-tech executive boardrooms, all spaces are equipped with the latest wired and wireless technology and largest bandwidth of any hotel in the area. Whether a wedding, conference for 800 guests or an executive board meeting for 10, the hotel accommodates the needs of any business, event planner or bride.


The hotel offers 303 guestrooms, including 14 suites, and is designed to foster connections and serve as a dynamic, energizing space where guests can collaborate, share and find inspiration.
