This will be the third property managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts in Minneapolis since 1993. The company also manages the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington in Bloomington, Minnesota, and previously managed the Crowne Plaza-Northstar Hotel (now closed) in downtown Minneapolis.

The joint venture acquisition is expected to close at the beginning of March.
