Why We Love This Hotel

  • Located on High Street, the main stretch of the Short North Arts District, home to many trendy galleries, restaurants, bars and shops
  • Ideal location for visiting THE Ohio State University, the award-winning Columbus Zoo or exploring the charming neighborhoods of German and Italian village
  • Amenities include Malin & Geotz bath products, free Wi-Fi, a coffee shop for a quick morning cup and even an on-site Shake Shack


The modern and eclectic Graduate Columbus hotel is located in the Short North Arts District, an area known for its youthful vibe and excellent restaurants. While this stretch of High Street is a popular destination all its own, other hot spots, such as The Ohio State University, the zoo and the Book Loft in German village are a short drive, making this an ideal jumping-off point for exploring Columbus. 

The phrase "Ohio pride never dies" is brought to life in the whimsically decorated guest rooms, complete with pops of scarlet and gray, state flag blankets and murals of famous Ohioans like John Glenn and Jesse Owens. Rooms also come with complimentary Wi-Fi and Malin & Geotz bath products. While this area has no shortage of impressive restaurants, guests can also grab a quick coffee or breakfast at Poindexter, a casual spot that turns into a bar at night. Shake Shack is also conveniently located on site. 

Columbus in winter is not to be missed: The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, as well as the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, do it up big for the holidays, complete with light displays, gingerbread competitions and appearances by Santa himself. Short North, German Village and downtown Columbus also host their own holiday events. The nearby Polaris shopping center is perfect for picking up some holiday gifts while surrounded by festive decor.
