Little shabby but cute
The Graduate is in a beautiful old building. It’s got a great retro vibe and has been updated so it’s fairly nice. But there’s a shabby quality to the rooms that is not charming. Too expensive for what it is compared to other, much nicer places nearby.

6/10 Good

We have stayed there before and had a good experience. The onsite Prepaid parking was completely full resulting in being late for event reservations. The parking is one of the reasons we stay there. Not realizing that parking is open to the public with no preference for hotel guests, we spoke to the front desk service person who had an attitude and was not very helpful. Not the cleanest stay either.
