The 500 indulgent rooms and suites were constructed above the stunning lobby, which is situated on the second floor to allow for two levels of structured parking beneath. The skywalk corridor is also located at this elevation and provides direct access from the Radisson Blu to the Mall of America.
The lobby was inspired by the chic European style of all Radisson Blu hotels, from the monochromatic color scheme to the unconventional use of materials. The sleek, opaque black backpainted glass walls frame the stairwell and surround the sophisticated sitting area and concierge. On the reverse of these partitions is a contrasting glossy, white backpainted glass application. The reception area has a completely different atmosphere depending on which side of the decorative glass installation you are on. When guests first arrive they are greeted with the darker ambiance, but as they round the corner to ride the escalator or take the stairs, the ambiance changes to light and airy.
Goldray's black backpainted glass wall cladding chosen for this iconic project is produced with LCBA; an opaque, colorful and durable glass coating applied to the unexposed surface of glass. Goldray's backpainted glass is available in a wide range of standard and custom colors, including both solid and metallic.
