Nestled in the heart of campus just a stone’s throw from Coffman Memorial Union and the Gophers’ stadium, the hotel is home team central for golden get-togethers. The lush lake house landscape is dotted in forest green, woodland toile, as well as Princely details of custom paisley and a little red Corvette to bring you home.
From meetings in town to campus meetups, the lobby is lounge-central for student hang time or some serious air hockey tournaments. Work hard or hardly work amid the cozy communal tables, dramatic fireplace and woodsy backdrop.

Your support in staying at the Graduate Minneapolis Hotel helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference. SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.
SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Graduate Minneapolis Hotel. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.
