Super-accomodating place - love the decor, rooms and beds are very comfortable, great location in Providence. Got upgraded to a suite and they put me on a quiet floor away from a sports team they had staying there and it was like a private apartment floor. Weather was terrible and we stayed in the hotel the whole time and had a great time! Super comfortable and easy. Will definitely stay here again.

This is the second time that we have stayed at The Graduate with our dog. We all felt welcomed, and the friendly staff was helpful the whole stay. I had initially reserved the wrong type of room, and the front desk had us moved into the room we wanted, very quickly.

Went to Providence on a getaway after the holidays. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the property couldn't have been prettier, the suite couldn't have been better! Highly recommend staying in a suite. Would stay again if in the area. Perfect location downtown to walk to any place in the city. Brown was 15-20 minute walk, the train station was a 10 minute walk. Many restaurants very close by. 100% recommend staying here.
