Graves 601 Hotel
601 1st Ave North; 612.677.1100

Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis
901 Hennepin Ave; 612.767.6900
MSP's only actual boutique hotel, Chambers lies smack in the middle of the Hennepin Ave theater district, and compensates for its lack of size with a supremely clean, contemporary aesthetic.

The Commons Hotel
615 Washington Ave. SE; 612.379.8888
Potentially the fist swanky college hotel since, well, ever, University of Minnesota-perched Commons has boutique charm but enough rooms to house all of those crazy Wisconsin fans in town for the border battle.

The Saint Paul Hotel
350 Market St; 651.292.9292
Sometimes the best hotels are the ones that tell you exactly what they are, like the old-school grand madame of MSP lodging known as the Saint Paul Hotel, which, with it's downtown locale and epic scope, lives up to its title as the St. Paul hotel.

Hotel Ivy
201 S. 11th St; 612.746.4600
Who needs ivory towers when you've got the Luxury Hotel Collection's Hotel Ivy, which was built partially into the formerly crumbling facade of an old ivy-fied building that's just a stone's throw from downtown's shopping district and Orchestra Hall.

Aloft Minneapolis
900 Washington Ave. South; 612.455.8400
Make telling people where you're staying in Mpls a Who's-On-First-ian excercise in semantics by staying at the Mississippi River-side, Euro-mod Aloft. "Cool. Which loft?" ALOFT. You get it.

The Grand Hotel Minneapolis
615 Second Ave. South; 612.288.8888
Good news! It doesn't actually cost a grand to stay at the Grand Hotel Minneapolis, making the classy downtown host to everyone from the Yankees to Lady Gaga a pretty good option for the common man as well.
