Great stay at the graduate
I really liked my stay at the graduate. The employees were nice the property was clean. There’s a Starbucks on site for coffee and a restaurant. Great Hotel for the money

Great place to stay
Had a great time at The Graduate. Located right on campus and right on the light-rail line so getting around the Twin Cities was real easy. Room was really nice and comfortable.

Overrated hotel with great proximity to UofM
Valet parking (outdoor) for $27 is way too much. We arrived at 10:45 pm and got put in a room with the view blocked by an industrial heating/cooling(?) machine, with double (not queen) beds with a weird layout. Maybe other rooms are better, but ours was was dark and not inviting due to the decor and blocked window. There was plenty of space for queen beds yet one of the double beds was pushed up against the wall. Why? It took 1/2 hour to get our car back we wanted it and it was still completely covered in snow. There has to be better options.

New name (Graduate Minneapolis) same great service
Great hotel with fantastic location if you have business on the U of M campus. Received approximately 9” of snow during my stay and when I checked out, they had cleaned off my car even though I chose the self parking option! Room is very comfortable and clean. Excellent WiFi. Great dining options on site and nearby.

Wonderful place to stay, right in the heart of U of M. I only wish the room had a microwave, otherwise it was very comfortable.
