What a pleasant surprise in Charlottesville! I loved the decor, service and location of this hotel. The room was fabulous, spacious, and memorable. Every detail for the room was great. The bed was extremely comfortable and large. As a new hotel in Charlottesville, many will be trying get in this one. Parking is limited so book early.

I stayed at this hotel the past two nights. The reviews that say it's still being built and the actual building has some work to be done are accurate... However I would never stay anywhere else in Charlottesville because of the staff. Laquisha in particular (also a young man whose name I believe is Justin - extremely courteous and helpful)....

We recently spent four nights here. When we checked in we asked about handicapped parking as my husband had recently had a triple bypass. We were told there were two handicapped spaces on the second floor of the parking garage that were closest to the elevator that takes you up to the hotel room. We found the spaces which were...

Everything was first rate and i am completely happy with my stay here. This is the second trip to this hotel as I had surgery at UVA. It's in a perfect location to UVA. The towels that were provided were those that i would have expected out of a much higher priced hotel. The little cafe they have has excellent...

Once you get past the limited area for parking to register, the place was great. Best night of sleep in a hotel in a long time! Located on The Corner on the edge of UVA Grounds, it couldn't be more convenient! I will stay here again!

We went to Charlottesville in late March, 2016 for a few days during my daughter's spring break from school. My husband is a UVA alum, so we have been going to Charlottesville quite a bit to enjoy events at the college and in Charlottesville too. When we were looking for a hotel, the Graduate Charlottesville came up in my search,...

The conceit of the hotel is college kitsch. Lots of 'props' and college-themed chotchkes. Cute, but a little too much of it -- it kind of got in the way. That said, the beds were sublime, the hotel was quiet in spite of the construction, and you can't beat the location. Shower was good although it could have been cleaner....

The Graduate is a five minute walk from the Lawn. It is on Main Street, where there are dozens of places to eat and drink. So, once we arrived we had no need for a car. We were on a trip visiting colleges with our son so it was a big plus not to have to deal with university parking....

We stayed at the Graduate Charlottesville in Jan and in Feb while house hunting. They are still undergoing renovations but it did not interfere with our pleasant stay. The best part of our stay were the wonderful people who were at the front desk -- namely Laquisha, Kristina and Marco. They were so helpful in recommending restaurants and giving us...

This was a great place for us. My grandson had to have surgery at UVA so we were given a discount on our rooms. Being close to the hospital was exactly what we wanted. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfy. It was also quiet. We stayed several times since the first of this year and never...
