Minnesota Public Radio — The hotel company owned by entrepreneur and one-time congressional candidate Jim Graves has been chosen to build a new hotel at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
A Metropolitan Airports Commission panel chose Graves on Monday from among three bidders. The full airport commission is expected to approve the selection March 17. Graves said he hopes to open the 250-room hotel in time for the 2018 Super Bowl.
Graves, a St. Cloud State grad who ran for Congress in 2012 but lost to Rep. Michele Bachmann, is best known for founding the AmericInn budget hotel chain and building the luxury Graves 601 hotel in downtown Minneapolis. His company also manages hotels in St. Paul and restaurants in the region.
