Quick overnight...

We stayed here for only a quick overnight after a night out Downtown. While I tried to check-in around 2, I was told that our room wouldn't be ready until after 3. No big deal, though an early check-in is always nice. The room was clean and cool - very hip. The bathroom was small but totally functional, and the bed was extremely comfortable. All-in-all, a great stay!

Great Place to Crash for a Bachelorette Party

I hosted a Bachelorette Party this weekend at the Graduate Athens Hotel. We all met up in the late afternoon for some drinks and party games and then made our way downtown. Although we could have easily walked, we chose to take a taxi because of the weather. The King Suite was so cute and spacious! I love the style that the Graduate has implemented throughout their rooms!

Liked the hotel but there were small things

This is a really neat hotel on the outside of downtown -- close enough to walk. I really liked the design and the bed was comfortable. Yes, the rooms are small but they were fine for me. The hotel is pet friendly, which I love. I didn't bring my dog but I could have. The ONLY issue I had was that the heater squeaked all night. Other than that, it was a very nice stay.
