MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — If you’re hoping to book a last-minute trip out of town in Minnesota, you have some competition.
Vacation spots across Minnesota tell WCCO they’re in for a busy summer season – with some breaking booking records.
The Hewing Hotel in Minneapolis’s North Loop neighborhood is leaning in to the luxury staycation game. Adam Rucinski, director of revenue management for the hotel, says guests are eating it up.
“Weekends we’re sold out,” Rucinski said. “We have a rooftop bar that has an indoor and outdoor space. We have the spa pool that is the only outdoor spa pool available in Minneapolis right now for a hotel.”
While corporate clients haven’t quite returned, locals are keeping the place busy.
