Graduate Seattle

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Located in Seattle's vibrant University District, the Graduate Seattle seamlessly blends college nostalgia with contemporary design and modern amenities. As soon as you step into the lobby you're taken back to the 1930s, with its vast comfy sofas, fireplace and large communal coffee table. Off the lobby you'll find Poindexter Coffee, serving coffee by day and wine and cocktails at night. Borrow a bike to explore the city and when you get back, be sure to take yourself up to the roof top bar at the 16th floor Mountaineering Club — the views from here are fantastic.

I stayed at this hotel when it was the Deca a couple of times and is now the Graduate. While the lobby has new graduate-esque furnishings, and a chic/loud rooftop bar, the rooms are exactly the same. Decently sized, nice desk, USB ports, all the stuff you want in a room, except a fridge. The bathrooms in both rooms I looked at and the one I stayed… Read more
I stayed at this hotel when it was the Deca a couple of times and is now the Graduate. While the lobby has new graduate-esque furnishings, and a chic/loud rooftop bar, the rooms are exactly the same. Decently sized, nice desk, USB ports, all the stuff you want in a room, except a fridge. The bathrooms in both rooms I looked at and the one I stayed in were very small. Like a 20" wide toilet-adjacent vanity, same older bathtub shower with curtains, not a glass enclosure. Nothing to write home about, but nice none-the-less. Wish they had breakfast here other than the little lobby coffee shop that basically has danishes and egg sandwiches. One elevator was not functioning while I was there which was very unfortunate because they are very old slow elevators to begin with, it made choosing whether to leave the room a chore. The room cleaning people were in the elevators every single time I was which was odd and having to stop at various floors, but not a big deal. The front desk service was pretty good although I got the key to an occupied room the first go around. For the relatively lower price, and decent rooms, I will likely stay again. Read less

My husband and I stayed at the Graduate Seattle recently. I though the decor in the lobby was great.

My husband and I stayed at the Graduate Seattle recently. I though the decor in the lobby was great. The decor in the rooms was less of my style, but there is certainly a strong design aesthetic and I like that they stick to it. Our room was huge and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the location is great if you are visiting University of Washington. The staff was all very friendly. We had drinks at the rooftop bar and the bartenders were also very friendly. The only thing I didn't like was a cleaner or some product they are using in this hotel. There was an overwhelming, bad perfume-y scent in our room and on our floor of the hotel. I am not sensitive to smells at all but this was too much. Old grandmother/Chemicals is how I would describe it. I would have rated the hotel higher but this smell did make the trip less enjoyable. Read less

Just so you’re aware, this hotel caters to young college aged people. If you’re not in that group you might want to try the Marriott or the Hilton down the road. If you are in that group you will not find a better hotel to stay in. We were astonished from the moment we walked in about the eclectic decor and rooftop bar. It’s like they read my mind… Read more
Just so you’re aware, this hotel caters to young college aged people. If you’re not in that group you might want to try the Marriott or the Hilton down the road. If you are in that group you will not find a better hotel to stay in. We were astonished from the moment we walked in about the eclectic decor and rooftop bar. It’s like they read my mind and designed a hotel exactly for me. Also, if you are old you should still go to the rooftop bar. They will treat you like royalty and you can get a great view of the city while enjoying a cocktail. Read less

We went to a concert at the Neptune Theater which happens to be across the street. Our room was very clean, they have a roof top restaurant/bar which was very delicious. Everyone there was very nice and helpful, oh and valet parking. I highly recommend the Graduate!

Stayed here twice, once with family while looking at the campus and once for biz.... Air is poor at best, elevator broke last time floor 11... uggh . Not a word or anything from management. Bar /coffee shop are poorly managed. Even though this is “hip” Seattle I still want service without and attitude.
