MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Graves Hospitality is pleased to announce its recognition as the winner of two awards from Marriott International at the recent CONNECT 2022 Marriott Select Brands Owner and Franchise Awards ceremony.
Over the past 47 years, Graves Hospitality has developed and managed a portfolio of more than 100 hotels, restaurants, residential and commercial properties. The distinctive Marriott awards honor two Moxy brand properties brought to market in 2021 by the Minneapolis-based company.
The Arne Sorenson Outstanding Contribution award for significant and outstanding contributions to Marriott brands was given to Graves Hospitality for the Moxy Portland Downtown. Located at the intersection of the lavish Pearl and Culture Districts, the 197-room Moxy embraces local maker-culture with a dose of signature style and splash of outdoor adventure, making it the perfect destination for guests visiting the Rose City. Graves Hospitality recently opened Food Cart Alley – a food hall incorporating distinct culinary purveyors into the heart of the hotel – which allows guests convenient access to a variety of outstanding dining options while simultaneously opening for a seamless street connection to the public. Big E by Chef Justin Sutherland and Fast Feathers by Chef Anthony Brown are now open.
Graves Hospitality was the sole recipient of the Global Design Best Innovator award in recognition for the Moxy Oakland Downtown project. The Global Design Best Innovator award recognizes a superior commitment to creative ideas, resources and construction methods while maintaining strong collaboration, and communication with Marriott’s project team. Located at the gateway to the Oakland Arts and Entertainment District, all interior and exterior spaces of the 172-room hotel were expertly designed to reflect the creative urban vitality of the dynamic neighborhood, including a six-story art installation titled, Shapeshift Oakland, created by world-renowned artist Thom Faulders. Innovative in every aspect down to its construction, the hotel’s completion marked the first-ever, fully modular Moxy Hotel, capitalizing on the cost-saving advantages as compared to a site-built building in the Bay Area.
The Moxy brand combines dynamic design, spirited service, and approachable pricing for the adventure-seeking, modern-day traveler. Since 2018, Graves Hospitality has developed and managed four of the more than 80 lifestyle centric Moxy hotels open across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Benjamin Graves sits on the Moxy Franchise Advisory Committee and has been actively involved in the brand’s development and execution.
Consistently recognized as a results-driven industry leader, Marriott’s awards for Innovation and contribution are just two of the more recent accolades received by family-owned Graves Hospitality. With a strong corporate team, focused on the pulse of demographic market drivers, financing strategies and lifestyle trends, Graves Hospitality tenaciously looks for new management partnerships and joint venture development opportunities.
“We’re committed to projects that fuel our creative passions, in vibrant markets that excite and inspire, with people we sincerely enjoy. When those elements are rooted at the core of our management and development strategies, outstanding contributions and design innovations just come naturally,” said Benjamin Graves, president, and CEO of Graves Hospitality. “We’re both humbled and invigorated to have earned these stamps of distinction from Marriott.”
The CONNECT 2022 Marriott Select Brands Owner and Franchise Awards honoring Graves Hospitality and other winners was held at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, CO.

Markets are rewriting the same story we’ve been looking at all summer – investors are skittish, and wary of the headwinds. Those headwinds are enough to spook even the most experienced traders. High inflation is making everyone nervous, the Fed’s turn to higher interest rates – to combat inflation – brings with it the risk of recession, and macro data on the economy is starting to show declines in the housing markets and consumer confidence and spending. As if all that wasn’t enough, now add in

Healthcare-connected real estate investment trusts (REITs) combine the recession-resistant medical sector with the high-yield dividends that REITs are known for. Rising borrowing costs cut into the float between what the REITs pay in financing for their investment properties and what they earn from tenant leases, at least in the short term. Global Medical REIT (NYSE: GMRE), Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE: OHI), and Medical Properties Trust (NYSE: MPW) all offer dividends with yields of 8% or more, but only two of these companies are worth the risk.
Record low supply + record high demand = higher costs for everything
