We stayed at the Graduate for 5 days while visiting family. Their location makes it very easy to get in and out of town. We happened to be there during freshman move-in weekend. Even though they were incredibly busy, the staff was always attentive & responsive. The rooms are spacious, updated & clean. Having the cafe in the lobby for... More

My husband and I needed a place to stay with our cats while we waited for our apartment to be ready to move in. Marco was so helpful in making our stay as pleasant as possible. Loved the decor, the helpful staff, and the rooftop bar. We are recommending Graduate Charlottesville to all our friends!

A few of us old high school buddies met up in our hometown and had a great weekend. This hotel provided a great location central to everything in and around Charlottesville. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

I haven't stayed at the Graduate in a few months and was pleasantly surprised by the improvements they have made! The rooftop bar and restaurant has opened - such a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the view. They have added a second elevator and improved the decor - for example pretty wallpaper instead of the pink elevator! As usual,... More

This was a surprise and in a fun great way. The hotel was fun and comfortable with a very helpful and pleasant staff. The rooms had adorable touches of being a dorm but not in a cheesy way. The bathroom was sleek with pipes as the sink support. One of the valets was so thoughtful, when he got the car,... More

We stayed in Charlottesville for a long weekend to attend a wedding. The Graduate staff were very welcoming and provided many helpful recommendations about things to do and places to eat. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and stylish, and they have a very cool shuffleboard table in the 2nd floor lounge! Decor in the rooms is "retro-eclectic... More

Very cute, kitschy boutique hotel in a prime location to UVA university and hospital. The hotel seems to be clean and well maintained throughout. The king room was generously sized and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom was bright and roomy, although the shower was a little narrow. Shower water pressure on the 7th floor was weak but acceptable.... More

Stayed here when it was a Red Roof Inn. Night and day. Complete renovation and entire floor added. Rooms are incredible. So is the bathroom. The terrace outside the bar at the top of the hotel is wonderful. Service by entire staff beginning with the valet who took care of the car was great. Best location of any hotel in... More

Stayed here on the recommendation of a friend and was generally pleased. I'd say it was "good to very good" rather than "very good," but TripAdvisor doesn't allow that distinction It's very convenient to UVA and to downtown and the valet parking was a nice a feature at only $7. It made arrival and departure very easy. Overall the hotel... More

We were blown away by The Graduate! Wonderful hotel. Loved everything about it! Stay here if you are visiting Charlottesville VA! The most comfortable bed in history. I will be throwing mine away at home forthwith. Rooftop dining A+! Steps away from UVA.
