Jackson Building in Minneapolis’ North Loop was built in 1897 as a farm implement showroom and warehouse with trains going directly inside the building. In 2016 a complete transformation and a full renovation were finished, and it turned the brick-and-timber warehouse into an elegant and edgy boutique hotel. The iconic features of Hewing Hotel are the giant pine beams sourced from the forests of Minnesota. Historic architectural details are kept as past treasures, like the original industrial elements combined with the right amount of modern deco.
Hewing Hotel’s 124 rooms and 14 suites are no exceptions when it comes to the gorgeous exposed wood, metal, and brick. If you like hip industrial design, you will love these rooms. This is not only one of those rare hotels where you can bring your pet friend along. They even provide memory foam beds for dogs and a list of dog parks nearby for some local fun.
The on-site restaurant, Tullibee, proudly uses the farm-to-table philosophy of serving culinary storytelling through specialty dishes. Then, head to the rooftop to enjoy the best panorama of the Minneapolis skyline. The Rooftop oasis six floors above Washington Ave is the place to hang out and grab a tasty drink. The hotel took inspiration from Nordic traditions and placed a sauna on the roof and a pool as a weather-proof concept.
