The room was large, clean and quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is excellent - there are many places to go well within walking distance. The only negative for this hotel is the parking - very tight spaces.

I travel globally and I review many hotels as fairly as I can because I also use tripadvisor reviews to help steer me away from hotel "pot holes". I am not a crank. Unfortunately, this hotel was the worst value I have experienced in years. The concept behind this chain is to place rooms close to fun university campuses and...

Very convenient location for both State street pedestrian area and the University campus (just adjacent to the bus stop of line #80). The room was clean and charming although freeze-cold in the beginning probably due to some technical failure of the heating system that was later resolved. Breakfast was not included in the room price, but we could use the...

We came to town for a college tour for my daughter. This hotel was in the perfect location right off State Street and just adjacent to the campus. The style of the lobby and the guest rooms were charming and whimsical. We loved noticing all the thoughtful details. There were complementary bikes we could use and a tasty coffee shop...

Stayed one night for a work trip. Room was clean with the basic amenities; the artisan shampoo conditioner and body wash in the shower were especially enjoyed! The parking situation isn't great as there isn't a ton of street parking available and the garage underneath the hotel is very small and tight. I wouldn't recommend parking in it if you...

From the moment I walked in a jovial custodian warmly welcomed me, easy check-in and the room had humor. I love when my hotel room makes me smile! Every detail has a cute or clever college-life reference, from my room key to do-not-disturb sign, to the AMAZING rum scented and cocktail shower amenities. We had dinner upstairs and though they...

Our stay at the Graduate was very nice. I thought the college-theme decor throughout was tasteful and well done; the lobby area offers long tables where students can actually stop by and study, and it also has a small deli/coffee shop called Portage PI offering salads, sandwiches, snacks, smoothies, juices, etc. We went up to the 7th floor restaurant, called...

The owners of this hotel put a lot of thought into cute details with the decor and room keys. It's like traveling into an old-fashioned dorm. But when it comes to actually staying here, you would have to be an undergrad with no space needs to appreciate it. The hotel rooms are noisy, cramped, and way too cold (despite trying...

The idea of this hotel is good on paper. I like the stylistic choices, but the room was super small and the bathroom felt dirty. Although they were clearly going for a collegiate feel, unfortunately it felt a bit like a well-designed dorm room. The drain in our shower was clogged, but it had a weird design function that just...
