Graves Hospitality selected to develop hotel at Minneapolis airport

The Metropolitan Airports Commission staff has reportedly recommended Graves Hospitality Corp. to develop a full-service hotel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Graves reportedly beat out proposals from Golden Valley-based M.A. Mortenson and St. Paul-based Morrissey Hospitality Companies.

"We are super excited that the MAC and us can share the vision of having a world class hotel at the airport—and it's going to be a very upscale, luxury hotel," said Graves President Benjamin Graves, and as reported by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

Graves is partnering with RSP Architects of Minneapolis and the Burnsville office of Denver-based PCL Construction Services.
