On the leafy campus of University of Minnesota, The Graduate Minneapolis draws inspiration from its Nordic and scholarly surroundings with snowshoes adorning the lobby ceiling, a roaring ski-chalet style fireplace and glowing neon proclaiming "We are all students." 

Rooms feature plush triple-sheeted beds and lounge chairs; upgrade to a premium king for skyline city views. Rooms also have free Wi-Fi, single-serving coffee brewers and rainfall showers. Guests can reserve complimentary bike rentals, and there's a free shuttle service for destinations within five miles of the hotel. Pets also stay free - and even get a free BarkBox with treats and toys at checkin. 

The Beacon Public House restaurant serves up gastropub comfort food like bangers & mash, smoked pork nachos and fried cheese curds to guests seated in electric-blue leather banquettes. There's also a variety of beers primarily from Minneapolis area craft breweries, along with a variety of craft cocktails. 

U of M surrounds the hotel with campus energy. The nearby Guthrie Theater runs shows from Shakespeare to contemporary, and the Weisman Art Museum, wrought out of twisted metal by architect Frank Gehry, shows canvasses from Lichtenstein and O’Keeffe.

From the press:
  • “Tucked into the University of Minnesota campus, the new 304-room hotel sports industrial-schoolhouse chic. Its location in University District means the hotel is in perfect pitch with innovative learning opportunities while on vacation” -- Fodor’s
