A luxury hotel in downtown Minneapolis has undergone some pretty big changes – not least its name.

Opening for the first time to the public on Wednesday is the Emery, formerly known as Hotel Minneapolis at 215 S. 4th Street.

Located in the historic Midland Bank building, the 229-room, 10-story Autograph Collection hotel has undergone a significant reconstruction as it shed its former name and forges a new path in downtown's competitive hotel market.

In a press announcement for the new hotel, Emery says guests can expect rooms with a "midcentury, 'Mad Men' vibe," while its lobby is filled with greenery that's "reminiscent of an indoor/outdoor garden."

But it's more than just a hotel. Anchoring the development is a new Northern Italian restaurant, Giulia, headed up by chef Josh Hedquist, a former competitor on Food Network's "Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge."

Hedquist has been partnering on the new restaurant with another hugely influential Twin Cities chef: Steven Brown of Tilia and St. Genevieve, and together they have put together a menu that even includes table-side mozzarella service, as MSP Magazine reports.

The Minnesota inspiration runs throughout Emery, with each room stocked with a selection of Minnesotan snacks and drinks, and featuring local artwork.

The hotel will also showcase the first ever downtown location of local coffee chain, Spyhouse Coffee, which will turn into a lobby lounge serving wine and beer every evening.
