Graves 601 Hotel

601 First Ave. N.
Minneapolis , MN , United States
(612) 677-1100

Geared toward the fashionable set, Graves 601 is within walking distance of all of Downtown’s restaurants, theaters, and bars, and just three light-rail stops from the Metrodome (home of the Minnesota Vikings and Twins). The atmospherically lit, high-ceilinged, and high-concept lobby is sleek with floor-to-ceiling wall installations, and permeated with electronica, which is piped into all public areas of the hotel. In the 255 rooms, all is quiet and modern; the beds are outfitted with Frette linens and backed by chic glass headboards etched with stylized Minneapolis landmarks like the Stone Arch Bridge. Pick up a complimentary bottle of Fiji water after your workout in the compact (but sufficient) fitness center.

Tip: Request a room above the 13th floor for a bathroom with a decadent full-body, five-head shower.

Room to Book: The Concert Suite on the top (21st) floor with full bar, dining area, Jacuzzi tub, and a grand piano once played by Billy Joel.
