Duluth, Minnesota (AP) The Lake Genevan Hotel is a dream come true for one of Minnesota’s biggest hotels and is one of the first of its kind in the country, with more than a dozen rooms and four dining rooms.
The hotel opened its doors in 2015 and is part of a growing trend in hotel development that includes hotels and resorts that cater to a range of specialties and types of guests.
The hotel, which is about 40 miles south of Duluth’s downtown, is expected to have more than 500 rooms by 2022.
The Duluth Times reported that Lake Genevans first guest rooms will be reserved for guests with disabilities.
The first guests will be able to book them on the website.
The restaurant will be available for breakfast and lunch, and the rooms will include a private bar, bar-restaurant, outdoor terrace and private outdoor pool, the newspaper reported.
The Minnesota Department of Health will be in charge of managing the hotel and will oversee its daily operations, the Times reported.
The department said in a news release that it will provide funding for the hotel.
The company that owns the hotel has received $1.2 million from the state of Minnesota, the Duluth Herald reported.
That money comes from the city of Duluz, the department said.
