FARGO, N.D., June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jasper Hotel, the new 125-room upscale boutique hotel in thriving downtown Fargo, North Dakota, will open its doors June 24. Located in the heart of downtown Fargo, guests of Jasper Hotel can expect stunning localized design and guest-focused service.
“The opening of Jasper Hotel and Rosewild restaurant in the RDO Tower is the capstone of the many investments made over the last 10 years transforming downtown Fargo into a regional destination,” said Mike Allmendinger, president of Kilbourne Group. “The hotel and the restaurant’s bar, café and dining will be an amazing addition to the many unique experiences of downtown Fargo.”
Celebrating Fargo’s roots, Jasper Hotel pays homage to Jasper B. Chapin, Fargo’s third mayor and well-known hotelier in the early days of Fargo, who embodied the spirit of adventure and hospitality that Fargo was founded upon. Guests will see Jasper Chapin’s mark of red accents that is a nod to his signature red bowtie, and embroidery inspired by his beloved wife, Emma. Regarded by some as the “Father of Fargo,” Chapin dreamed of building a place where both travelers and locals could experience what he loved so much about Fargo, and Jasper Hotel continues that dream.
Jasper Hotel, an Aparium Hotel Group property, is deeply rooted in the traditions and energy of downtown Fargo, and that translates to authentic experiences for every guest. Jasper Hotel brings a collaboration of local vendors, innovators, and artists in the community together and will serve as a launching pad for the city’s many artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs while serving as a gathering spot for visitors and locals alike.
The unique layout of the hotel is woven throughout the 18-story mixed-use building, starting at the ground level where locals and guests are immediately welcomed to Rosewild, the flagship restaurant and lounge featuring an open wood burning hearth oven. Jasper Hotel offers over 4,500 square feet of event space including the 250-person Continental Ballroom surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and a beautiful outdoor terrace. Guestrooms and suites start at the ninth floor and offer unparalleled views of the metro area and the plains beyond.
Rosewild will be a truly unique dining experience. Rustic yet refined, Rosewild honors and elevates Dakotan sensibilities and rural Nordic foraging, butchery, and fermentation techniques. Rosewild’s menu was created with a strong focus on the region’s abundant agriculture and traditional Nordic cooking practices, including the signature wood-burning hearth. Rosewild’s executive chef, Austin Covert, will highlight local farmers, ranchers, and other partners with seasonal menus cooked over open flame.
Rosewild’s bar, café and lounge will showcase Nordic-inspired renditions of classic cocktails and a curated selection of local craft beers, ciders, and spirits. Guests can gather with friends to enjoy a warm and sunny day on the outdoor patio or around the fireplace overlooking the skating rink in the winter. Rosewild will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with weekend brunch.
Mary Orlando, general manager of Jasper Hotel, has built a team of talented hospitality and culinary professionals to bring this upscale boutique hotel to life. With award-winning properties across the United States including the Hewing Hotel in Minneapolis, Orlando and her team recruited employees and provided signature service training that embrace Aparium Hotel Group’s culture of “unearthing the amazing moments unique to every city.”
“Jasper Hotel captures the wonderful spirit of downtown Fargo and will deliver a unique level of service to the region,” said Orlando. “We look forward to welcoming our guests to Jasper Hotel, where they can experience the true character of Fargo’s past, authenticity of the present, and anticipation of an inspired future.”
Jasper Hotel is focused on leisure travelers this summer – with a curated offer featuring the perfect three-day itinerary and a guest room package that includes a fully stocked cooler of beverages and snacks.
Fargo’s Jasper Hotel opens to the guests on June 24, 2021. Reservations for rooms and event spaces can be found at www.jasperfargo.com with rates starting at $169.
