“Happy Birthday to Me!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband decided to surprise me with a stay at the Graves 601 in downtown Minneapolis for my birthday. We've stayed here before on an anniversary as well as New Year's Eve a few years ago and enjoyed ourselves very much so returning was a pleasant surprise! Every time we've stayed here, the staff has been very friendly and helpful. (On a previous stay I forgot something in the room but they saved the day and went way above and beyond - a staff member who lives near us actually delivered my forgotten item to our house!) The rooms are clean and very comfortable with fun, modern design elements. When we checked in I was greeted with a "Happy Birthday" and flowers that my husband had ordered beforehand were delivered to the room before we arrived so that was another surprise when we walked in the door. The Hotel's location is very convenient to easily access theaters, shopping, dining, sporting events and light rail. We live in a nearby suburb but if you were coming from out of town, it would be easy to get there from the airport. Our room was on the 18th floor with a beautiful view of the city. We were disappointed that Wi-Fi is not a free inclusion with a room as we've experienced at many other hotels we've stayed with. It is free in the 4th floor public areas, but having it in the room would be a nice touch. Overall, it was another nice stay.

An amazing property with excellent service. The on-premises restaurant, Cosmos, is truly outstanding, equaling the quality of food and service I've received at Michelin-star restaurants. The property is well appointed, with clear attention paid to a consistent style of design in furnishings, finishes, lighting, and color. The Graves is our hotel of choice for any trip to the Twin Cities.

I've been traveling a lot for work this year, so I've been in a number of hotels. I have to say that I absolutely loved this hotel; from the decor, staff to the fab king size bed. I ordered food from their restaurant and brought it up to my room which was delicious. Work was stressful, but when I came back to the hotel it felt comforting. My Husband said that I looked 'rested' (which never happens). So we plan on visiting Minnesota in the summer next year and staying at the Graves.

Experience of second visit to this hotel did not live up to first experience. Would consider another hotel in area before returning again.
