St. Paul, MN
In 2013, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe purchased the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in the heart of downtown St. Paul. Graves Hospitality Corporation, who manages the property for the Band, brought in Welsh Construction to refresh the lobby area and build-out a new restaurant.
The lobby area now has an updated look, featuring a large fireplace and seating area. Welsh also completed the build-out for the hotel’s new 100-seat restaurant Rival House, which includes a wood-fire brick oven. Several “back of house” areas were relocated to make room for the new restaurant.
