My husband spent the first two night of our honeymoon here and had an amazing experiences! We got in super late the first evening so they valet parked our car for two nights, but only charged us for one. They upgraded us to the penthouse suite for two nights (instead of the original one) so we didn't have to move the following night. The service was amazing! We'll definitely be going back!

Fantastic Service - Everything ran smoothly, and it looked like a million bucks. Many guests said it was the best food they had EVER had at a wedding. Penthouse suite was amazing for the evening as well - the Graves was the perfect venue. We'd pick it again a thousand times.

The Graves 601 Hotel would be my top recommendation for anyone looking for a top-service hotel in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area. My husband and I were frequent guests so we knew the level of service provided by the Graves, however for our wedding ceremony and reception we were beyond happy with their service. First, they were extremely flexible in working with us, specifically on the dinner menu. They made new recipes just for us to reflect our backgrounds and our desires for the evening. Second, their reservations crew was great in helping ensure the 70+ rooms we had booked for the evening were correct - our guests all spoke of the easy check-in and the top service they received. Lastly, the Graves 601 is just an amazing hotel - the rooms are trendy yet amazingly comfortable!!! Everyone says they have the best beds - and it's true!!!
The Graves is situated in a great location in Minneapolis - in the heart of downtown yet right off the light-rail train. A perfect location for our out-of-town guests.
Graves 601 receives my top recommendation to others looking for a fabulous venue!

Gorgeous, modern venue! Plenty of interesting spots if you're going to do indoor photos and the best ballroom in the Twin Cities in my opinion.

We did both our ceremony and dinner reception in the ballroom, moving out to the foyer for cocktails while they flipped the room. We had about 160 guests, but it could easily accommodate at least 300. Since it isn't as popular as some of the other downtown hotels, we were able to get a Saturday evening in August when most other places were already booked. It is similar to the other hotels in price, but you'll have to pay for parking. I'd recommend telling your guests to valet, since it can be confusing to get to the hotel from the Block E lot.

We worked with Susan Davis, who was very nice though sometimes not as thorough as I would have liked, so be sure to check everything twice during your planning. She accommodated all our special requests and really helped us to make our budget work Some of the hotel staff weren't super friendly in our initial visits, but they seemed to have fixed that issue.

The food was phenomenal, restaurant quality, with generous portions and arrived hot. We had several guests tell us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Note: the the staff will not clear plates while speeches are going on, so plan accordingly in your timeline.
