Everything you need to know to get to Graves 601 is on their website.
At $211 for a weeknight in the summer, Graves 601 was a good $100 less than other upscale Minneapolis properties.
Graves 601 rises above, and connects to, downtown's Block E (as in Eyesore). It's a tacky mess of a building -- faux balconies, neon, billboards: my 9-year-old nephew could have designed something more tasteful. There's a lot of riffraff milling about, and scalpers working the corner. This part of Minneapolis has really slid downhill in recent years.
The valet and front desk service was fine, but the friendliness forced. I don't really care to tell every Hakon, Olaf and Erik "what brings me to town."
Nearly a decade old, the once trendy decor is becoming a tad outdated, but its manages to retain most of its original swank: the glossy wood, high ceilings and graceful floating sculpture are timeless.
The accommodations are where this hotel shines. They're contemporary without being sparse (I'm talking to you, Delano) or cheesy (I'm talking to you, W). What with the plush bed, spacious bathroom, lit makeup mirror, oversized full-length mirror, and tasteful lighting I was in my element.
For $200 I couldn't have done any better. I would be happy to return to Graves 601, but I doubt it will become my go-to stay when in the Twin Cities.
