The Westin Minneapolis hotel was created in the nationally historic Farmer’s and Mechanic’s Bank building on the corner of 6th and Marquette in downtown Minneapolis. The heart of the building is the 1941 Art Deco bank lobby with beautiful teak wood wall panels and bronze chandeliers. The original office tower envelope composed of lime stone and 3 tone aqua porcelainized enamel panel curtain wall has been restored to its original appearance. 216 guestrooms and suites (requiring over 50 unique room plans) have been designed to fit within the shell of the original office tower. The hotel lobby and a four star restaurant and bar (appropriately named B.A.N.K.) have been designed to occupy the original ground floor banking lobby.
