When I have business in Athens, the Graduate is my first choice. Great Spa, Food, Entertainment, First Class service and staff. On my last visit, I experienced a car problem that couldn't be repaired the same day. I found myself almost glad to have to stay another night.

We stayed there for the night prior to my daughter taking a tour of UGA. We loved the hotel. We did upgrade to a suite, and it was huge with eclectic decorations and plenty of room (could have stayed a week and been fine). Also had a PacMan machine and record player in the room, which was really neat. It...

We traveled to Athens for a New Dawgs program. We had 3 teenagers and a dog with us. We checked into the king suite which was so cool, hip and funky and had more than enough room for everyone. We loved the decor. It was well equipped and the pull out sofa had a tempurpedic mattress. What I loved most,...

The location and the room were great. We had a wonderful 3 night stay and enjoyed the atmosphere in the nearby Foundry and the lounge. We were within walking distance of downtown and follow be that to be a definite plus for getting to know Athens.

A great experience.. Good reservation phone call, good follow up, good job at the check-in desk, nice parking, clean room, just enough, no frills needed. Good entertainment right there on the property. The gals at the front desk gave us good guidance about a restaurant, they have a shuttle that will take and pick you up downtown. What a find.....

Fantastic start to vacation hotel was quirky but oozed quality. Staff friendly and helpful. Short walk to restaurants and shops. Facilities good and wished we had stayed longer. Would recommend highly as a stop over location.

We wanted a place to stay on the way to the Masters besides "Hotlanta". The cute little college town of Athens fit the bill perfectly. This boutique hotel really thought of everything!

This is a great hotel tucked away near UGA and downtown. It is not a party hotel, but rather one for parents to stay in while visiting the university or students. Very nice and clean with adequate parking, something lacking compared to the hotel closest to it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Graduate Athens - where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. We are located a short walk from the UGA campus and downtown Athens. Whether you're dropping in for a show at the Foundry, our multi-tiered music venue, or in town showing off the Alma Mater, our warm, friendly whip smart staff will be your compass guide - so you can feel like a local, even if it's your first time in town. Get ready for a night like you've never had before. Get ready to be inspired. Here at Graduate Athens, we believe life is a timeless journey filled with memory making stops, extraordinary rites of passage and all of the courageous leaps of faith that get us where we're going. Just beyond the historic brick facade lies our very own Southern village. While Graduate tips a hand to its historic roots, it has fully embraced the southern Renaissance in all of its artistic edge and glory. Everything you need is right here-whether you're in town to wind up or unwind. Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner including Malin & Goetz amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel lobby is caffeinated with just the right blend of grab and go goodness. Think home baked eats and a selection of the best brews. We've got just the right shot of espresso to pair with your morning news at Iron Works Coffee. The Foundry, our historic music venue served as the original iron foundry, and was reimagined to honor the site's roots and preserve this piece of Athens' fine past. The multi-tiered structure and soaring beams welcome crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate the detail and dedication to craft. The Foundry Bar & Grill stocks every local beer imaginable and offers fun fresh fare whether you are catching a new artist or you're just looking for a place in town to hang out and make some history of your own. At Graduate we are all about the R&R and making your acquaintance. Melt away your stress, unplug from the world and indulge in a few hours of off the grid me time. Let us know which spa service serves you best, and we can make it happen. ... more   less
