Welsh received a NAIOP Award of Excellence in the the Repositioned/Renovated Greater than 75,000 square feet category for revamping a former Days Inn Hotel into the Best Western Plus Hotel at Mall of America.

Welsh completed a total overhaul of the building, expanding 211 guest rooms and luxury suites with upgraded amenities, large flat-screen TV’s, fitness center, family-friendly water play land, and on-site meeting and event facilities which can accommodate up to 280 people. The building’s exterior was redesigned with a brick and glass façade, creating a more modern look and enabling it to compete with other hotels in the area.
