MINNEAPOLIS – April 14, 2008 – On April 15th, CSM Lodging will open a Residence Inn by Marriott in Plymouth, MN, the company’s sixteenth Marriott hotel in the Minneapolis area.  This 119-room hotel will be one of the first in the newest generation of Residence Inns that combines the comforts of contemporary home life with the amenities of an upscale, extended stay hotel.

“This hotel was carefully planned with the modern, technology-savvy traveler in mind.  We have flat screen, high-def televisions, stainless steel appliances, and solid granite tub surrounds and countertops in every room.  We recognize what the modern traveler is looking for in an extended stay hotel; this hotel reflects all those things and more,” said Robert Dann, president of CSM Lodging.
The Residence Inn Minneapolis Plymouth is a part of CSM’s multi-million dollar mixed-use development, Plymouth Pointe, and is located on the corner of highway 494 and county road 55 adjacent to the West Health Facility.  Plymouth Pointe contains a variety of chic shops and restaurants.

“We are delighted to be in Plymouth and be a part of this city’s phenomenal growth.  Our high-quality, well-designed properties will complement this thriving community, and we hope to add value to this already prosperous area,” stated Dann. 
Michelle Rein, the hotel's general manager, was born and raised in Plymouth and obtained her Bachelor's degree in Hospitality and Tourism from the University of Wisconsin, Stout. She has been in the hospitality industry since 1992 working as operations manager, assistant general manager and, most recently, in general manager positions. She has been with CSM Lodging for the past ten years and has primarily served as a General Manager for Residence Inn properties, most recently at the Residence Inn in Roseville before taking on the role of opening the new Residence Inn Plymouth.

With the anticipated success of the Residence Inn Minneapolis Plymouth, CSM Corporation continues to strategically plan for more mixed-use commercial developments in the Twin Cities metro and across the country.
