We have watched this hotel being built, renovated,anticipating the roof top bar and restaurant. I would not recommend this to anyone . The service was terrible tonight. The food was not good. Go somewhere else. The hotels good.

Booked one night for girls' trip to see a concert at UVA. Location is perfect-within walking distance of campus and the concert venue. What could be a perfectly ordinary property is made memorable by the decor and the staff. Word is, this used to be a Howard Johnson hotel (!). I would never have guessed that! Modern, without being austere....

I had a client staying at the Graduate Hotel - car transportation fell through but the Front Desk staff (Tiffany specifically!!) was extremely helpful.

The rooms were super comfortable and reasonably quiet. (A room near us had a dog that barked incessantly while it's owners were out during the afternoon.) The hotel rooftop bar was a perfect place to meet up with friends and enjoy the beautiful weather and a local libation. The lobby coffee shop also served excellent coffee, drinks and nibbles. We...

The Graduate Hotel is the place to stay while visiting UVA. The location is prime if you are visiting UVA grounds as it is on the "Corner" in the middle of all the action.
