  • We had our wedding block at the Graduate Hotel a couple of weeks ago. We got a room with an attached “parlor” which was perfect for the groomsmen to get ready and it has an extra bathroom too. The hotel is super clean and has a fun style with lots of eye candy. Our room was very comfortable. It was just a couple blocks from our wedding venue which was convenient for us and for guests. Loved it!

  • We were so happy with The Graduate Hotel for our engagement party! Everyone there listened to us, were quick to reply and very accommodating/helpful. Especially Michael, he was really great! The location of the ballroom was nice as well, many of our guests had the option to be inside or outside on their patio which worked out well for a Minnesota summer!

    Thanks for the great review Monica! It was a pleasure helping you and Div celebrate your engagement and wishing you both all the best with your wedding next year.

  • Our event was amazing! Great food, beautiful venue, and excellent staff. We had a lot of guests from out of town and the classy, Minnesota-themed hotel was the perfect place to host them. We also had our rehearsal dinner in the Top Golf Suite, and it was a casual, fun balance to an elegant reception dinner the next day.

  • The entire staff at the Graduate were very friendly, helpful, and extremely flexible. Once you make your reservation for your wedding block, they continue to keep you updated and are very willing to help in any way.

  • The most important things for my husband and I when we were planning our wedding were location (lots of out of town guests), food, music, and cost. The Graduate gave us the perfect balance of all things--the chef is amazing and is willing to work with you to adjust your menu to provide culturally inspired dishes they may not typically serve, though we ended up selecting food from the menu. We are shameless foodies and everything was delicious. Everyone we worked with at the Graduate made the planning process easy, though of course the MVP was Michael, the director of catering and events, who we were lucky enough to work with to plan our wedding. He was always responsive and a total pro--he thought of everything and made sure everything was prepared for the day of. He even found Pisco (a very important Peruvian liqour) and worked with the kitchen to make a hosted cocktail during our cocktail hour. Our event took place in the Meridian ballroom and it is a beautiful enough space ... Read more

  • The Graduate Minneapolis was the DREAM venue for our wedding ceremony and reception! They went above and beyond on absolutely every aspect of our event. From day one they were detail oriented, timely, and great communicators throughout. The Pinnacle Ballroom was the perfect choice for our intimate ceremony and cozy reception. Michael was the greatest coordinator to work with. He partnered with all the hotel preferred vendors I hired leading up to our event to make sure nothing was left out. The food was definitely the main attraction for several of our guests, the portions, dishes, and variety they offer is outstanding. Our wedding weekend was absolutely flawless, and we are still getting rave reviews from all our family and friends who attended.

  • Wow- where to start! Our wedding at the Graduate Hotel was everything we dreamed of and more. We planned our wedding in 4 months and it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Michael, the Director of Catering and Events. He went above and beyond and made the process fun and easy! Our wedding was in February so everyone loved the convenience of being at the hotel for both the ceremony and reception while having the option to stay the night. The hotel accommodations were incredible. We loved the restaurant (The Beacon), Starbucks, the Top golf suite (where we had our rehearsal dinner- so fun!), the amazing hotel rooms, rooms available for storage, and the expansive event space, which was large enough for our band. We had so many compliments about the food- so good! We were also able to host a brunch the morning after for our out of town guests. If we could do it all over again, we truly wouldn’t change a thing! The ambience of the Graduate Hotel, the accommodating staff, and... Read more

  • This hotel is absolutely amazing. Every single part is outstanding. From the very beginning of booking your wedding to planning stages to the absolute perfect execution of the wedding itself, they make the entire experience fun, enjoyable and great. I could not have produced the same wedding anywhere else without the impeccable staff and management. Thank you so much Graduate Minneapolis for such an amazing wedding experience!!

  • Book your wedding weekend at The Graduate Hotel! It was a fantastic venue. From the initial tour and early planning to the details the day of the wedding; the people, service, details/finishes (it's been newly renovated) and food were all top-notch. They were also very willing and interested to work with our desired budget. We would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone consider a wedding in the Twin Cities area. Michael and his team were very attentive and accommodating for all of our requests throughout the entire weekend, including those that came in last minute). We held our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception here. I/we cannot stress enough the value of having everything in one location, and all things coordinated through a single point of contact (as opposed to separate vendors and coordinators). It made the entire process so much simpler than I imagine it would have been otherwise. A couple extra perks: - Incredibly convenient/accessible central location, yet not right in the mid...

  • My husband and I had our Wedding ceremony and reception at The Graduate Hotel at the end of May and they were AMAZING! It is the perfect all in one location, we could not have been happier with how everything went. Working with Michael and the rest of the hotel staff was fantastic, the food was great, and the recent updates to the entire hotel really added to the feel of our wedding. - Liz & Hunter
