We stayed here on a girls getaway and found it to be very charming. The staff was very friendly and the beds were wonderful. Had an enjoyable stay. The coffee/breakfast restaurant was closed for renovations, but they still provided coffee.

Came down for the weekend as a get away. It's a fun hotel with a great location near the hospital and the Main Street restaurants. To those critical of the design...it's meant to mimic a dorm room furnished with all of the mismatched stuff your parents are looking to get rid of when they send you off to college. It's...

This is my second stay at the Graduate. Gorgeous room again. Wonderful restaurant and roof top bar! The best location in town, bar none. If you have business at University Hospital it's a hundred yards away. If you want something to eat, the restaurant here is good and there are a dozen others within three blocks. Most importantly, the staff...

Wonderful city facing king room, everything clean and fun. The concept of a college dorm is fun, different and quite enjoyable. The rooftop restaurant was excellent, we both had a great dinner. Overall it was a surprisingly original experience and highly recommended

I doubt one could find a finer place to stay at this price range in Charlottesville or even the entire state of Virginia.We paid $97+tax and parking fee for a 3rd floor room. We parked on the top floor of the parking ramp (3rd floor) so we had a short walk from our car to our room. I have one...

If you are going to Charlottesville to see the University or to see downtown Charlottesville, this is a great location - and, probably because they are getting started, the prices are reasonable. The restaurant bar on the roof is also a big plus. I will definitely be going back. The entry is a little funky (all of the Graduates have...

Stayed for a quick overnight getaway on New Years Eve. I was very impressed with every staff member I encountered from the reservations process (Tiffany) to the valet to the front desk.

We were delighted to find this charming hotel next to UVA campus, which happily accommodated our dog. The room was spectacularly clean, quiet and very comfortable, with a quirky tongue in cheek but not over-bearing student-esque vibe. The cafe was undergoing renovations but free coffee was available in the lounge on the second floor. The bed was very comfortable. Parking...
