Friendly staff, great rooftop bar with fire pits, and views of Tucson.

We were surprised to learn on check-in that room cleaning (standard in all other hotels) is not so at the Graduate. You can "add it on" when you check-in. It wasn't a huge deal for this trip, but this should be listed on Orbitz's site. Daily room cleaning is a standard for hotels not an amenity. The room was very nicely appointed and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The WiFi works well once logged on, but does seem to have issues on reconnection. Often would require hardbooting of system. Seemed to be a "known" issue so. Sometimes took several attempts. The worst took about 20 minutes with several reboots. Their Tech support put me on hold and I eventually hung up. They never called back... Valet parking is mandatory as there is no self-parking lot.

The property is in a great location convenient to the University of Arizona. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Rooms are comfortable and décor is a fun mix of historic and trendy. Unfortunately as a new hotel they are still working out some of the kinks. The text valet feature did not work. Often we would have to request our car in person and the text confirmation would arrive hours later. Valet also seemed to me short-staffed and overwhelmed for number of guests on the weekend.

Good evening, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to provide feedback. During these times we are trying to be extra sensitive to guests needs and limit the amount of people in rooms as an extra precaution. Graduate as a brand has implemented our Graduate Cares program in response to COVID-19, and included in that is only providing cleaning services upon request. We are happy to service the rooms normally if that is something you are comfortable with as a guest so I apologize if this was not communicated to you correctly. Thank you again for providing us feedback so we can continue to learn and grow as a hotel! Warm regards,
