Super comfortable, boutique hotel right on trendy Kirkwood. I would definitely stay there again.

Clean, liked decor of room No coffee making in room, very loud in floor, only 1 set of towels in room k owing 2 people staying in there

The property was very clean and staff were very friendly. We loved the outdoor space even though it was cold out. I appreciated the red chairs throughout the hotel and all the other decor was very well done! We were in Bloomington for college capmus visit with our high school son. If he chooses IU we will definitely be staying at the Graduate during visits.

Staying at the Graduate Hotel is like coming home to my son at IU. The warmth, professionalism and hospitality is always appreciated to this Chicago mom.

Great property in the best location in Btown. Also got an amazing deal.

This chain of hotels focuses on the history of the college in the area, which is this case was IU. The room itself felt cramped due to the size of the furniture that was chosen to go with the retro theme in a room with a king bed, not the bed was comfy and overall the theme looked nice The bathroom was very well done in my opinion, although the towels were on the scratchy side and the shower gel that was in the wall dispenser disappeared on our last night there (I assume staff took it out to refill it and forgot to put it back). We did not try the on site restaurant although the coffee we had in the morning was pretty terrible - I'm not sure if it was burnt, stale or both. Location wise it was perfect, right in the thick of downtown Bloomington which made it easy to walk to restaurants and coffee shops to meet the family members we were in town visiting. In addition, this hotel is pet friendly and did not charge extra for us to bring our dog along which is a feature I have yet to see at any other hotels. I had called ahead to see if special arrangements needed to be made for me to bring the dog along and was told that you don't even need to make a note on the reservation about it, you just show up with the dog at check in and sign liability waivers. The website and some reviews I had seen mentioned that when you stay with a pet your dog is also given amenities, including a bowl, blanket, and bark box. We didn't get any of that so the policy may have changed.

The rooms felt more like a large bedroom than a hotel room. The location of the Graduate in Bloomington, was just a couple block walk from about anything you need.

It was a fun place to stay- lots of unique surprises! The staff was friendly and helpful and the location is perfect.

100% will stay at another one of their properties again. It was clean and made me feel like I was home. I didn’t feel like I needed to wear shocks or shoes in the room.

Very clean hotel with modern, quirky interior design. Has amenities you are used to when staying at a similar hotel. Wi-Fi was difficult to use, even with provided password (which there was no place to enter) and instructions (which were inaccurate and sparse)

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear about the noise and the lack of towels in the room. We do have Keurigs upon request but have removed them due to safety concerns and COVID. The room includes a complimentary cup of coffee or tea from Poindexter per day you stay with us.
