President/COO
Graves Hospitality

In a crowded market for new hotels, the Minneapolis-based, family-owned Graves Hospitality still finds a way to carve out distinctive projects. The company’s 124-room Moxy Uptown is currently under construction; the Marriott concept marks the first hotel in the Uptown area of south Minneapolis. Graves has strong development instincts, but also brings a savvy eye for design to the company’s hotel and restaurant portfolio. Also in the pipeline: another Moxy hotel in downtown Minneapolis and a 300-room hotel at the airport.
