Weber Shandwick to Manage Grand Re-Opening of the Sofitel in Minneapolis

The Twin Cities office of Weber Shandwick has won the business of the Sofitel Minneapolis.

Sofitel Minneapolis, one of 160 Sofitel properties worldwide, brings a unique French “art de vivre” to the world’s leading business and holiday destinations. As a brand of Accor hotels, Sofitel’s prestige has made these establishments internationally synonymous with the best in hospitality.

Sofitel Minneapolis has partnered with Weber Shandwick to announce the hotel’s redesign and grand opening, scheduled for May. The initial renovation phase includes the entire lobby and more than one-third of the guest rooms, including two suites, the exterior and new signage.

“We are thrilled to be working with one of the leading hotel properties worldwide," said Sara Gavin, president of Weber Shandwick’s Twin Cities office. "It enables us to broaden the travel and tourism clients we serve in the region."
