Minneapolis’ Historic Jackson Building Converted to Boutique Hotel

The historic Jackson Building located in the North Loop neighborhood of downtown Minneapolis was recently converted to a posh, boutique hotel. The building, which was once a farm equipment showroom, had taken on a new persona and will forever be known as the Hewing Hotel.

Hewing is a logging term that pays homage to the historical significance of the neighborhood and the Minneapolis logging industry. Many historical design remnants remain in the five-story, 124-room hotel including exposed timber and brick, tall ceilings, and some of the original industrial elements. Hotel amenities include a chef-driven, Nordic-inspired restaurant, ballroom, boardroom, fitness center, yoga studio, and rooftop social club that will remain open year-round – a rare find in Minnesota considering the frigid winter weather. The rooftop space includes a bar, lounge, sauna, and pool/spa.
