A group of our family and friends stayed at the Graduate for a family event in Charlottesville. We also hosted an evening party in the Game Room. Staff was very courteous and extremely accommodating. Very good service all around.

I dined at the rooftop restaurant with a party of eight in one of the two private rooms. It is Restaurant Week in Charlottesville. We each ordered one of the $29/3 course dinners that included a small plate, a large plate and a dessert. Wine pairings were offered for an additional charge and several members added wine to their orders....

This is the place to stay in Charlottesville for all things UVA. Close to everything. The rooms are nice sized with a cool college theme. The second floor "adult" game room is a blast! The staff is impeccable. Manager Don Gathers is the consummate host!

Loved the Graduate. Stayed here during a 3 day road trip to visits colleges with my daughter. The Graduate is the perfect location to UVA'a campus. I wish we could have stayed longer. The only thing that was disappointing was there wasn't any breakfast options at the hotel. I understand the cafe is under renovations so that would explain it.

My wife and I were very pleased with Graduate Charlottesville. Our room was large and the bed was very comfortable. Best of all, the hotel was in easy walking distance of the UVA campus. A few hours after we checked out, I realized I'd inadvertently left my hearing aids behind in the room. I feared I'd made a very expensive...

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.
