“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

It's as good as all the other reviewers say it is, plus for those arrving from Europe as I do, the Starbucks across the hall opens at 5am and you can get there without going outside, particularly important during the Minnesota winter!

Room Tip: I like the dual aspect corner rooms, they are the lowest and highest numbers on each floor

I have stayed at a lot of hotels in a lot of different cities - from Motel 6 to five-star boutiques - and Graves 601 rates at the top for the very friendly customer service and bang for your buck.

My husband and I didn't have enough PTO or extra cash to take a honeymoon, so we stayed at Graves 601 the day after we got married. When I told the folks at the front desk that this was our honeymoon, such as it were, they looked for a room upgrade and hooked us up with an executive suite for free. We thought that our original room was a good deal (I want to say that we paid about $160 on Priceline?), but that knocked it out of the ballpark.

Everything about this hotel - from the lobby to the hallways to the executive suite itself - was gorgeous. I would say that I felt like I didn't belong (I'm pretty sure I wore a hockey jersey when we checked in), but everyone was so friendly that I didn't even notice. The room was sleek and modern, the bed was to die for, and the views were incredible.

The real reason for the five stars, though? Customer service. Concierge told us that they were testing the water when we checked in and the water came out of the faucet a yellow-brown for a few solid hours. That made for very unpleasant use of the whirlpool and showers. I (very nicely) complained about this a few days later. The response? A free executive corner king room at a date of our choosing.

My father was a management and human resources professor for many years, and we kids grew up lecturing our friends about why customer service is one of the most important parts of management (yeah, we weren't very popular...). This hotel is a great example of what happens when you can turn a negative experience around a save not only the customer's opinion of your business, but also the business reputation as a whole. I am returning to Graves 601 fully confident that my husband and I will enjoy our stay, and I feel like I can recommend this hotel to friends and family without reservation.
