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’ve stayed in a few graduate hotels now for work and I really like them. Low key (I.e., unfussy!) atmosphere with nicely appointed, modern rooms and charming decor. Front desk crew went the extra mile on checkin. You can even play air hockey in the lobby! I definitely

Last night, I received a call from the Graduate informing me that they were canceling my two-month old reservation for two nights due to a "clerical error"! It's my daughter's high school graduation this weekend with family in town, lots of party prep to do, ceremonies on Sunday

We certainly would like to apologize to this guest and the other guests that were affected by the situation. This is certainly not the way we conduct ourselves and have never had a situation like this in time we have been a Graduate. Human errors do happen and that was exactly what this was. we are terribly sorry that it affected you and your first true experience with us. If you would like to contact the General Manager or send a Message through TA with contact information he will reach out to make this situation right Again we are very sorry

Honestly I wanted to like the hotel. Good location, well laid-out, clean. But I got there at 6:55 p.m. and there was one person behind the counter and 8 people in line. She was doing her best, and was apologetic, but it took 25 minutes before I got to the front of the line

We cannot apologize enough to this guest for the experience. This is not the standard we hold ourselves to and not the typical level of service received by our guests at any one of our hotels. This type of honest feedback is what allows us to continually work on the experience our guests have and identify where we need to continue coaching our team. We share all reviews with our team and will do so with this one. Thank you again and we hope that in the future you will try staying with us again and allow us to show you the service we are known for providing.

When checking in I was not greeted by the hotel clerk. She didn't have much to say during the entire check in process. When the hotel parking was full I had to park across the street at a university parking lot. I was charged $12. When checking out I brought the parking

We would like to thank the guests for bring this to our attention, some issues can not be predicted and need to be resolved such as an issue with the HVAC but service is something we pride ourselves on and should never be an issue with a guest. We will definitely address this and are very sorry we did not make the parking situation right. The only way to fix these issues is by honest guest feedback and again we want to say we are sorry and thank you for bring this to our attention! We hope to have this guest back again to show then there feedback helped us to improve the experience for all guests.

I stayed here on a visit to the U of M with my son. First of all, the location is perfect for a visit to the campus, as it is in between all the sports venues and a number of academic buildings. There are also a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance. The
