Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Amenities

We were charged $35 per day for parking, but were not told ahead of our booking that this cost would be assessed. We were pleased with the cost of the room, even though the room was small and cramped. We checked to see if parking was available but were not told there was a charge for the parking. We were not happy at all. Will not return to The Graduate. Will tell people about the parking issue.

There was no sign on the outside of the hotel so it was very hard to find, parking was around the block from the hotel and inconvenient, could not get the room to heat up.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The hotel was close to the university. The parking is hard to find, and hotel charges $35.00 to park. Also the shower was horrible, the shower varied rapidly between very cold and very hot. But the bed was very comfortable.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

It's a very pleasant appealing artistic property in a great location. Staff,especially front desk was excellent. We were disappointed that on Thanksgiving day and the day after there was no option for any food in the hotel (except maybe room service)...only coffee until about noon. There is a Tartine Bakery location in the building but they were closed on Thursday and Friday which was weird to us on Friday. But overall it's a very good place
