Originally built in 1962, the Thunderbird Motel was a Minnesota institution for over 40 years and was one of the first hotels in the Bloomington area. After Ramada took ownership, they selected Welsh’s design-build team to update the common areas of the iconic motel to a more modern look. The front lobby area, restrooms, lounge, bar, and dining area on the first floor of the hotel were all completedly remodeled. The remodeled areas now have a fresh, transformed aesthetic that gives guests an inviting first impression. .
