The staff was so friendly and very accommodating. We had a very large group of 20 people, and they made the check-in and check-out process super easy and painless. Would definitely recommend the Hoyt House for large parties and wedding celebrations.

The Graduate staff helped make my daughter's 16th birthday party a huge success. We stayed in the Adorable King suite. The Spa was the best part of our trip. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The massages, mani-pedicures, and facials are superb! Great job!!!! We will definitely come again and again.

I was in Athens for an event at the Classic Center. Although a couple of chain hotels are closer to the venue, Classic Center is an easy few-block walk down the street, and I much preferred it for a boutique experience and being a little farther from the downtown area. Their on-site Foundry venue and Coffee Works are great, and...

Personable staff. Pleasant "low-key" environment. Pet friendly. Great location. Close to downtown and UGA campus. This is our second time here and we would definitely come back and recommend to others. Especially nice for pets and places for walking dogs.

The Graduate Athens has a quaint rustic motel vibe with a college theme. It is a good location to downtown and the University of Georgia. The Foundry is a great music venue. I strongly recommend getting the french fries!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Graduate Athens - where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. We are located a short walk from the UGA campus and downtown Athens. Whether you're dropping in for a show at the Foundry, our multi-tiered music venue, or in town showing off the Alma Mater, our warm, friendly whip smart staff will be your compass guide - so you can feel like a local, even if it's your first time in town. Get ready for a night like you've never had before. Get ready to be inspired. Here at Graduate Athens, we believe life is a timeless journey filled with memory making stops, extraordinary rites of passage and all of the courageous leaps of faith that get us where we're going. Just beyond the historic brick facade lies our very own Southern village. While Graduate tips a hand to its historic roots, it has fully embraced the southern Renaissance in all of its artistic edge and glory. Everything you need is right here-whether you're in town to wind up or unwind. Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner including Malin & Goetz amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel lobby is caffeinated with just the right blend of grab and go goodness. Think home baked eats and a selection of the best brews. We've got just the right shot of espresso to pair with your morning news at Iron Works Coffee. The Foundry, our historic music venue served as the original iron foundry, and was reimagined to honor the site's roots and preserve this piece of Athens' fine past. The multi-tiered structure and soaring beams welcome crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate the detail and dedication to craft. The Foundry Bar & Grill stocks every local beer imaginable and offers fun fresh fare whether you are catching a new artist or you're just looking for a place in town to hang out and make some history of your own. At Graduate we are all about the R&R and making your acquaintance. Melt away your stress, unplug from the world and indulge in a few hours of off the grid me time. Let us know which spa service serves you best, and we can make it happen. ... more   less
