BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - A new hotel to be built at the main terminal of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will be an InterContinental.

Graves Hospitality announced the initial, "to-be signed" agreement with InterContinental Hotels and Resorts on Monday, saying the project is slated for completion in 2018. The hotel will be connected to the main terminal through a skyway.
