May 05--Several executives left their mark Tuesday on Minneapolis-StPaul International Airport's first hotel, with a concrete handprint ceremony at the construction site of the new InterContinental Minneapolis-StPaul. "This is really a great day to celebrate a real milestone here, and it's a lot more than just watching concrete dry," joked Ben Graves, president and chief operating officer of Minneapolis-based Graves Hospitality, the developer behind the hotel. While Graves had earlier hoped to have the 12-story hotel open by the Super Bowl, which will be played in Minneapolis in February, it won't be completed until next summer. The 291-room InterContinental will include a security checkpoint and a new skyway that would allow guests to cross straight to the terminalIt will also have a penthouse-level "observation bar" for viewers to watch planes takeoff and land. The hotel is part of the airport's $1.6 billion capital improvement program, which includes a new front entrance under construction and a 5,000-space parking structure and car rental facility that will break ground this summer. "The new InterContinental hotel will add to that energy by providing a great mix of style, comfort and convenience that will be a fantastic reflection not only of our airport but all of Minnesota," said Brian Ryks, executive director and chief executive of the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), which owns and operates the airport. The hotel was made possible by a partnership between Graves Hospitality and Boston-based real estate investment firm Intercontinental Real Estate Corp., which is unrelated to the hotel brandRSP Architects designed the hotel, and PCL Construction is building it.
