My wife and I stayed at the Graduate last week for child number four's orientation at the University. I was a tad disappointed, but I believe this hotel could become quite a nice place to stay. Here are my observations ( in no logical order): 1. Valet parking is required. I generally dislike this practice, but my only real complaint... More

Horrible experience, and generally disappointed. They say this is "high end" however, it's not. Especially for the location. Mandatory valet parking, that I pay for?! No thanks, I'll find a spot on the street for free. Game room? Wow, so much time to play when there's SO. MUCH. MORE. to do in cville aka lawn, famers market, downtown mall, restaurants,... More

Stay anywhere but. If there was a minus one, that would be my rating! Worst check-in experience ever. Mandatory valet parking. Total bust. Trust me, anywhere but here. Hard to believe they are still in business. The old Red Roof Inn was a dream compared to this.

Jack C, Thank you for taking the time to pass us this note. Our boutique hotel experience is a definite departure from the former hotel, with all new high end amenities, game room, and coffee bar in the lobby. Right now we are valet parking all of our guest vehicles at the discounted self park rate. We are putting all... More

My daughters and I recently stayed at the Graduate while attending UVA orientation. We had stayed at the Hampton Inn the last two times we visited Charlottesville and I was excited to try something new. Disappointed on many levels, but can see potential if they can work out the kinks of being new. Upon arrival, I had difficulty entering the... More

Juda375, We’re excited to learn you were one of the first travelers to experience Graduate Charlottesville, but I am very sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations as we continue to dot our “I’s” and cross our “t’s” coming out of the gate. We hope your daughters had a great orientation experience once you got settled in. As... More

My UVA alum wife booked a night at this new Charlottesville hotel because The Boar's Head was unavailable. We wanted a nice recovery night and morning on our way back to CT after our son's wedding weekend in Memphis. Short version: great staff, great room and excellent location one block from The Corner and across the street from UVA Hospital... More

My wife and I stayed at the Graduate for one night with some friends for our annual wine trip to Charlottesville. It was previously the red roof inn and in dire need to updating. Because we liked the location we decided to give the graduate a try. We were very pleasantly surprised to see a tastefully decorated renovated hotel with... More

Spoke to reservationist twice to confirm. Arrived to find no sleeper in the room. We were told that no such room exists. But they took a sleeper from a King size... More

Not ready for prime time. Trying hard, so maybe next year the construction will actually be finished and they'll be able to receive guests properly. No wastepaper basket, no iron, no cups for brushing teeth when I arrived. Construction workers still on premises. Very apologetic about everything, so 5 for attitude, 2 for results.
