Our Minneapolis Architecture

Award Winning Hotel | Discover the Unique Design Features

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has pioneered international luxury travel for generations, and the InterContinental at Minneapolis - St. Paul Airport is no exception. Through our innovative Minneapolis architecture, we offer guests a unique vision of our cosmopolitan city and enable them to live the InterContinental life — just steps from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and within convenient distance of the Mall of America.

Our 12-story-tall building features a distinctive “folded curtain” wall, which evokes the waters of Minnesota's many famous lakes. And, through the use of local Kasota stone and Cold Spring granite, we were able to mirror the contemporary aesthetic of the airport while creating a connection with the distinctive style and material palette of the local region.

Experience our Minneapolis architecture for yourself. On our website, you’ll always find the best available rates to reserve your next stay at InterContinental Minneapolis - St. Paul Airport.


A palette of stone, wood, and glass is reflective of the lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and warm woods found throughout Minnesota.


Paying homage to the state’s reputation as an art destination is a curated collection of works by local artists.


Through floor-to-ceiling windows of our guestrooms and suites, you’ll find panoramic views of the airport, Minnesota River Valley,or downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Sky Bridge

Perhaps the most convenient architectural feature for guests is the sky bridge that connects directly to Concourse C at MSP Airport. Innovative technology (part of the TSA security checkpoint) allows travelers to move from the airport directly into their hotel. Through design, the transition from the modern airport to the luxurious comforts of an InterContinental hotel is seamless.
