Large Boutique Hotel Interesting Decor
MatthewMRyan84

Despite some of the negative reviews recently I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Albeit brief the decode was friendly, quaint and welcoming with some local flair. The bar downstairs had a solid selection of local craft beer on tap and one of the best orders of nachos I’ve ever had. The bar doubles as a breakfast spot in the morning which was really cozy and served free drip coffee. Good breakfast sandwich from the place as well. Friendly at reception, accommodating and clean. Seemed to be near enough to the action downtown.

Pictures on walls all through out hotel are of graduates of University. Very interesting.

Very nice hotel.right in the center of University action. Fun! Clean, comfortable rooms. Bed and pillows comfy, and towels very nice, but and fluffy. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Very knowledgeable about people in pictures. Look forward to staying in another Graduate Hotel.

Cleanliness issues in a hipster hotel
ScribblerChicago

First of all, I don't always get to choose where I stay for business. I have noticed an uptick in what I call these mid-level hipster hotels; hotels that concentrate on crazy, clashy decor and eccentric touches like candy bins in the lobbies. The Graduate is one of those hotels, unfortunately. I stayed here for a business trip to downtown Fayetteville. The decor is just--well. Not restful, let's say that. Clashy pattern mixing, and I wonder if it's to try to hide the fact that this hotel has cleanliness issues. Perhaps you won't notice the fact that during a two-night stay, the same pile of crumbs remained untouched right outside the elevator on the 6th floor? The thing is, I did notice; not once did I see a vacuum being run in a public area. Worst of all, though, was the fact that when I removed what appeared to be a fluffy, clean towel from the towel rack in the bathroom, I discovered someone's underpants beneath it. Ew. Tip - the head of housekeeping who came up to replace ALL the towels when I called down to complain told me that that's something you can and should do everytime you check into a hotel; upon check-in, request new towels and also a new comforter be brought up to the room. Because I now understand that they do not always replace all the towels in a bathroom, only the visibly unused them. Gross.

I also disliked this hotel because it did not have a full service restaurant on site, and it's located in a town where, at least on Sunday, no restaurants are open. There is a - again, crazily, seizure-inducing decorated - lounge with a bar that had a very limited grab-n-go menu that you had to order at a counter, no table service. The menu was not really sufficient for someone who is traveling on business and just needs to have a place to sit with a nice glass of wine and leisurely enjoy a relaxing dinner. Again, I've noticed that there are more and more of these hotels doing the same thing - going crazy on the kitsch (like the "rotary" phone in the room) but forgetting the good old fashioned amenities that road warriors like me still value. I am not a fan. But in the case of the Graduate, I am most definitely not a fan due to the cleanliness issues. Even though the staff was uniformly nice and helpful when I complained, and took off $50 from the bill because of it. Oh - also, the last night I was there, a tornado warning woke everyone up around midnight (through the weather alert on our iPhones). I'm grew up in the Midwest, I know the difference between a warning and a watch, and this was most definitely a warning. I dutifully shuffled down from the 6th floor to the lobby, expecting to be told to go in an inner room or something - this has happened to me before while traveling. But the staff on duty actually kind of made fun of the whole situation, joking that there were NEVER tornadoes in Fayetteville. The woman at the desk actually said to me, "Oh, it's just a warning. It's not serious, it's not like it's a serious warning." HUH? There was a mother with two young daughters who were not acquainted with this kind of weather who were very concerned and the staff really didn't take their fears seriously. It was really puzzling and I was concerned by the attitude exhibited. Maybe there wasn't a tornado that touched down at the hotel - although it was very windy and stormy - but there was just a few miles outside of the area, on the way to the airport. It just seemed like the situation should have been handled a lot better. The vast majority of people staying at a hotel are not familiar with the area, including the weather; alerts like a tornado warning should be taken seriously.
