The Omni Viking Lakes Hotel, a four-star, full-service hotel is set to open in 2020 and will be located in the Viking Lakes development in Eagan, Minnesota. Omni joins MV Eagan Ventures; Ecolab; the Davis Family of Cambria; and Viking Lakes Hotel Physician Partners as ownership partners of MVE Hotel, LLC.
ESG Architecture & Design leads the architectural and interior design, which draws upon Nordic architectural traditions and features elements inspired by the American Nordic landscapes of the North and the unpredictable character of its climate and seasons. The northern lights, combined with feelings of comfort, well-being and refuge inspire many of the forms, finishes and features within the hotel. Clean lines, neutral color palettes and simple design elements will be showcased throughout the 320 guestrooms and public spaces.
The 14-story hotel will offer more than 35,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting and pre-function space, including a 7,500-sq.-ft. ballroom and a 4,410-sq.-ft. event center. Two-story hospitality lounges will be featured on every other guestroom floor, with six in total. Each lounge is about 1,500 sq. ft. and will have couches, communal tables, a fireplace and kitchen.
