    Graduate Athens
    Athens, GA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Athens, GA
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 846 reviewsTripAdvisor (846)
    Free WiFi

    The Graduate Athens is located in Athens, Georgia, and caters to travelers visiting the University of Georgia campus. In fact, the property features details designed by the same blacksmiths who created iconic University of Georgia structures like the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. Lodgers will find an array of shops, restaurants and theaters nearby and can walk or use the hotel's complimentary shuttle to get to and from campus. Back at the property, guests can grab an espresso drink in the lobby's coffee bar, enjoy live music and innovative Southern fare at The Foundry Bar & Mill, break a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center, take a dip in the seasonal saltwater pool or unwind with a massage at the full-service spa. Keeping with the hotel’s style, most rooms and suites feature eclectic Southern decor with bright yellow headboards, lamps that mimic the University of Georgia's bulldog mascot and plaid accent pieces. Hoyt House, an early 19th-century repurposed farmhouse, offers accommodations with neutral interiors, floral bedding, hardwood floors and local artwork. Past guests loved the "quirky" rooms and "fun" atmosphere maintained throughout the property, but some noted poor housekeeping service and musty odors in their accommodations.
