Welcome to Graduate Minneapolis — where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. Graduate Minneapolis is home team central for golden get-togethers, nestled in the heart of campus between Coffman Memorial Union and a stone throw from the Gopher’s stadium. Our lush lake house landscape is dotted in forest green, woodland toile, and Prince-ly details of custom plum paisley and a little Corvette red to bring you home. From meetings in town to campus meetups, the lobby is lounge-central for student hang time or some serious air hockey tournaments. Roving food carts serving local flavor (‘sota stuffed burritos, hand crafted hot cocoas and all-star spirits) drift amid the cozy communal tables, dramatic fireplace and woodsy backdrop.

I have to say, the Graduates have their niche down, A cool W-like vibe crossed with a university library - the lobbies are fun - filled with people studying or hanging out and the rooms always have some fun touches. Will stay here every time - and I choose them in other cities too!

Location is terrific for parents of University students but was very disappointed that there was no room service. The staff was super helpful when the TV wasn't working properly, all the staff in general was lovely. For that price, however, I want room service.

Horrible location, unless your in town to visit the university. Priceline didnt mention the 25$ per day parking fee. For this to be a 4star hotel the room was extremely small I felt caged in. The best part about the room was the built in shampoo and soap in the bathroom and I like that there's alot of pillows on the bed. But the lobby is the nicest looking part of the hotel. If the room was so cramped it probably wouldnt have been so bad.

I really liked this hotel. It was a unique alternative to your standard hotel. We booked it for one night and we found the rooms a little small but very comfortable. Beds were the right firmness for us, it was clean and the decor was fun. Has a real old school university/college theme going that is brought through the entire hotel. They had a nice fireplace, students quietly studying on the huge work table in the lobby, air hockey tables, shuffle board, and virtual golf. Unlike some of the other reviews, I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly.They saved us a ton of money on Uber rides by explaining the light rail system to get downtown. I don't believe there was a pool (or I didn't see one), and there weren't safe's in the room but we were able to securely leave our valuables/bags at the front desk while we took in a Vikings game. I would recommend this hotel for folks looking for a unique nostalgic experience. We will be returning!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights as we moved our son into his university apartment and could not have been more pleased with this hotel. The location is perfect, immediately adjacent to the university. The decor is fresh and interesting. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The staff we encountered were all polite and professional. We will be staying here whenever we visit our son in the future.
