    Impeccable Service

    The Graduate Columbus never disappoints. The friendly environment surpasses any place I’ve ever stayed. Whether it was the valet service, cleaning staff or the workers at the desk, everyone was so helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had all our needs met. You will never be taken for granted at this Midwest-Friendly hotel.

    A Columbus Must Stay

    This was without a doubt the best place I have ever stayed in Columbus! The staff was friendly and welcoming. They were able to answer all my questions about the immediate area around the hotel and what restaurants had dog friendly patios. The room was immaculate and very comfortable too. I will absolutely be back!

    One night getaway

    On whim we went for a night to Columbus for a couples getaway. Excellent location with over a dozen restaurants/bars within the easy walking distance. Rooms and hotel were very clean and staff was very helpful and friendly. I thought the value was very good for the location and accommodations. Would definitely consider staying there again.

    St Patty's Date night

    Nice Hotel - clean with friendly staff. The valet is in back of hotel at parking lot ? We parked our car literally only a dozen feet or so from the door. Yet right inside the door is the valet desk. Why in the world would you have valet and pay for it when it's primarily the same distance to park your car. Was supposed to get a $15 coupon for food or drink call my butt they didn't have anything open. This is a nice hotel with a college theme yes that's pretty much all you'll get is a your room least at this point of their business..... Great location - pretty much served our purpose.

    watch out for valet parking & brown stained sheets

    Well, there were a few things up front that could have been explained. In the dark, you can't see the $5 sticker on the bottles of water. BUT to your credit, apparently, there is a $15 room credit for food? still not sure how that works. $30 valet fee billed after the fact? NOBODY said this up front. They should refund that to anybody who questions it because you can't charge things you aren't told about. I tipped the hard-working fellows well. Yes parking is at a premium. NO you shouldn't take advantage of it and if you do, after a long drive, the person just wants to rest. Tell them UP FRONT before parking. Also: my room had weird small brown stains on the sheet but only saw those in the morning light. Not sure what they are but you should probably have those checked. Nice shower area.
