Our Hotel

Graduate Minneapolis is more than just a place to lay your head. While you’re with us, tee off in our Topgolf Swing Suite, grab a cocktail at The Beacon, our laid-back restaurant and bar, and get your heart rate up on one of the Peloton bikes in our first floor gym. We’re the perfect spot for Gophers – and their dogs! Pets stay free at Graduate Hotels.

Nestled in the heart of campus just a stone’s throw from Coffman Memorial Union and the Gophers’ stadium, we are home team central for golden get-togethers. Our lush lake house landscape is dotted in forest green, woodland toile, as well as Prince-ly details of custom paisley and a little red Corvette to bring you home. From meetings in town to campus meetups, the lobby is lounge-central for student hang time or some serious air hockey tournaments. Roving food carts serving local flavor (‘sota stuffed burritos, hand crafted hot cocoas and all-star spirits) drift amid the cozy communal tables, dramatic fireplace and woodsy backdrop.

From breakouts to breakfast, boardroom business or ballroom sized soirees, we can help plan your Minnesota meeting or Golden Gopher gathering for groups from 6 to 600. From customized wedding parties, creative catering and all the local charm and technology to make it memorable, we are here to help celebrate.
