Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Located in downtown Athens, Georgia, this hip hotel is surrounded by quaint shops, restaurants and charming houses.

Guests can expect exciting bursts of color and contemporary design choices. Some rooms are decorated with UGA colors and paraphernalia, most notably the bulldog lamp. A collection of vintage, locally sourced art hangs from the walls of almost every area in the hotel.

Take the free airport shuttle from Ben Epps airport to the hotel or bring the car; self-parking is complimentary. The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle around town, and the University of Georgia campus is just an eight-minute walk away.

Be sure to check out The Foundry, the hotel's on-site music venue and restaurant. The Foundry serves classic comfort food alongside live entertainment. If the night is still young, head to Georgia Theatre to experience the vivacious Athens music scene.

Enjoyed Most: The friendly and helpful staff.
Linda May 30, 2015 Liberty, SC, United States
Enjoyed Most: From the moment we checked in, this hotel was so worth it! The whimsical rooms, the friendly staff and the ease of pulling your car right up to your room. No elevator needed! We were going out for dinner and the security guard offered us a ride in the Graduate van. He also came back and picked us up later. What service. We only had a short walk up the street to the Classic Center for graduation of our daughter. My husband stays at other hotels in Athens for business because of "points". He said he doesn't need the points, he's staying at the Graduate from now on!
Other Comments: We will definitely be back!! The bed was so comfy and the room overall made us feel so relaxed!

Enjoyed Most: Everything about this hotel was unique and adorable. The room decor was adorable, it was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. The shower was spacious, bathroom very clean. Location is perfect, the restaurant food and drinks were excellent ( I had a jalapeno margarita for the first time) they also had a comedian the night we were there which added to the fun. Their coffee shop and the lobby are extremely cute. I just couldn't get enough of this place! Definitely would go back. This was a travelzoo deal, for 90 bucks we got the room, $20 credit for the restaurant and 2 free coffees, what a deal!

Other Comments: Unfortunately there was a drag bingo tournament going on so we were not able to get into the onsite restaurant. We wanted a hotel with restaurant on site since we were driving through and getting there rather late in the afternoon. Back of the room was on a very busy road/intersection.

Enjoyed Most: We liked the decor of the room, the cafe, and the Foundary bar and entertainment. Everything was in walking distance to our room.
Other Comments: They had a difficult time processing our bill with the Travelzoo special credits and when they did they overcharged us. Then no one in accounting would answer their phone and have not called me back.
