Freezing in Room in North GA - Window unit Heat
Asked for additional blanket to be delivered to the room, was told by front desk it would arrive before we returned to hotel room. Called back at 9:30 pm when we enter the room at night to go to sleep and front desk then stated there was only 1 person on staff and could not leave the counter or could not allow guest to pick up blanket at front desk until 11 pm when night shift arrived. Was told that blanket would be delivered after 11 pm to room. No blanket was ever delivered and we had to use the decorative throw on the bed as a form of warmth. Next day very nice cleaning attended saw the need of an additional blanket and went out of her way to have it there for the following night.

Worth Barking For
The stay was great. The Graduate caters to UGA grads with pseudo IDs of athletes and celebrities who have gone to the school. It makes you feel great to be a 'Dawg.
