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...

So, first off, the hotel is very pretty and the staff very nice. My review is less than stellar for a couple of reasons. First, the room was lovely, but it was clear there had been water leakage somehow..one of the pictures on the wall had clearly gotten wet. Second, the coffee shop was closed for repair ant this was...

This is one of a small chain of academically situated properties. It's in a great location for everything Charlottesville. The staff are all very friendly (Mr Jake and Ms Chaunte and Ms Tiffanee) and have great personalities. Also had the chance to speak with Ms Yolanda and Ms Christina, two of the managers.

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.
