What an amazing place to stay! With a name like "Graduate," my wife and I had no idea what to expect when we came across this hotel and booked it. But we were SO glad we did. This college-themed hotel has the most inviting décor that's not your typical design. From the lobby and hallways to our room/bathroom, everything was impeccably clean and visually (the colors, design, overall atmosphere) the place was amazingly pleasing. To top it off, the location was perfect – within walking distance of the historic waterfront and great restaurants – and the staff was extraordinarily friendly and professional. We were so impressed overall, we decided to Google the hotel to see how long it had been open. To our delight, we learned that Graduate Hotels is a chain. Needless to say, we now look forward to visiting other properties! We highly recommend this hotel! This is NOT a sponsored review – we simply loved it THAT much!
