Bookworms will feel right at home in the lobby of the Graduate Hotel. Filled with well-lit corners and cozy places to sit, this literary themed hotel is stylish and inviting. Walls are lined with bookcases and adorned with quotes from scholars and students. As it's located just across the river from University of Iowa, students often make their way over to popular lobby coffee bar Poindexter. The hotel is also attached to the Pedestrian Mall, a popular spot for locals and visitors to go shopping, hang out at a bar or grab a meal at one of the many restaurants.
The retro-hipster library design flows into the guest rooms with quirky vintage accent pieces paired with modern staples. Rooms feature Malin & Goetz bath products, complimentary Wi-Fi and in-room coffee. Guests also have access to the indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center and complimentary bike rentals to roam around the only UNESCO City of Literature in North America.
