Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has shared the details of 2 brand-new properties in the U.S., located in very different parts of the country.
In Florida, the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale is now open for guests, and in the Upper Midwest, the Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis is accepting reservations ahead of its opening in June 2022.
Let’s take a look at all the details of these brand-new luxury properties.
What Is the Four Seasons?
Based in Canada, Four Seasons is one of the world’s most exclusive hotel brands. It has over 100 hotels and resorts (and 48 branded residential properties) in nearly 50 destinations around the globe. Since its inception in 1961, Four Seasons has been synonymous with luxury and impeccable 5-star service — and we fully expect its 2 newest U.S. properties to carry on the traditions of the brand.

Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale
Located directly on the Atlantic Coast, the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale is poised to become the South Florida city’s most luxurious property.
There’s no shortage of ways to soak up the sun at this hotel. In addition to the beach, where guests will have access to a private stretch of sand as well as a “Beach Concierge” who can arrange water activities, the hotel boasts the “Ocean Sun Deck” that features 2 infinity-edge pools, one of which is meant to be “serene” and the other more lively.
The resort’s signature restaurant, Evelyn’s Fort Lauderdale, is helmed by Chef Brandon Salomon and will serve Mediterranean cuisine with a coastal flair in a gorgeous indoor/outdoor space. The lobby cafe and bar, Honey Fitz, will serve everything from coffee and pastries in the morning to natural wines and hand-crafted cocktails in the evening. An additional restaurant overlooking the beach is expected to open in the fall of this year.
The Four Seasons also offers a full-service spa, a 24/7 fitness center with views of the ocean, morning yoga classes, bicycle rentals, and more.
Each of the resort’s 189 guest rooms and suites takes inspiration from the surrounding area, with nautical details and mid-century furnishings and design. The hotel’s top suite — the Birch Oceanfront Terrace Suite — boasts 1,600 square feet of interior space and a whopping 2,000 square feet of fully furnished outdoor terrace that provides jaw-dropping views of the ocean directly in front.
Base-level “Lauderdale-View” rooms start from $995 per night for stays in mid-April but decrease to just over $600 per night as we move into the summer months.
Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis
Four Seasons Minneapolis, Minnesota’s first Four Seasons property, will open in June 2022 in downtown Minneapolis, about a 20-minute drive from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). It will offer 222 guest rooms and suites, all of which will have unobstructed views of the Mississippi River and the city’s skyline. The hotel’s top floors will feature 34 Four Seasons Private Residences.
It will also offer a fourth-floor pool deck and bar, complete with a fire table for chilly nights. According to the hotel, the pool deck will be the largest of its kind in the entire city of Minneapolis. As you’d expect from a 5-star hotel, there will be a full-service spa, a fitness center, and an indoor pool. There will also be 16,500 square feet of meeting and event space, including a grand ballroom.
An award-winning local chef, Gavin Kaysen, is bringing a “destination” restaurant that will feature Mediterranian dishes and a ground-floor cafe.
The hotel is offering pre-opening specials to entice travelers to make a reservation. The “Experience More package” comes with a $100 credit per night per room (or $200 per night per suite) that can be applied to food and beverage or spa services. Guests must stay a minimum of 2 nights.
Rates at this luxe hotel start at around $525 per night for mid-June stays in a Superior Skyline room. This room type measures 472 square feet, with 2 double beds or 1 king bed, and views of the city. The hotel also features deluxe rooms and executive suites.
Travelers who appreciate luxury hotels should be excited by the news of 2 new Four Seasons properties in the U.S. While both are certainly on the higher end when it comes to pricing, you can rest assured that you’ll experience the latest and greatest in terms of amenities and service that Four Seasons has to offer.
