It is on The Corner across from Student Health and so within walking distance of many campus haunts. Furnishings are stylish and quite attractive. The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated, beds comfortable, and rooms reasonably sized. Kurig coffee makers, refrigerator, cable HDTV. Fast free wifi. No microwave; nice linens and towels. The price is reasonable. They have a great game...

The restaurant has a fantastic deck overlooking downtown Charlottesville. It is a really beautiful spot. The food was decent, but nothing spectacular. The waitstaff was pleasant. I couldn't really recommend anything specific as the food was average. It would be a fun place to come and have drinks before dinner.

Loved the location in regards to the proximity to UVA. Right on the corner and next to Mellow Mushroom gets some bonus points. Valet needs some work. Both on arrival and departure, the attendant seemed overwhelmed and I was left standing around. In addition, I had to park my own car since the attendant didn't know how to drive a...

The Graduate is a design hotel done right - still cozy, still functional, not expensive, but the decor makes a statement that elevates the whole place. My kids loved the game room - bar and hang out area with ping pong, shuffleboard and foosball - and there is an adorable restaurant on the roof. The lobby and coffee bar were...
