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.

My favorite part was the wonderful view of Mount Rainier from my room. It is close to the University of Washington, and it is easy to get to and from the hotel. The art deco style and college theme was quite fun. Breakfast at Poindexter Coffee was good too. Everyone who worked at the hotel was nice and helpful. I would definitely stay there… Read more

Let us check in super early along with a free room upgrade. (Held our bags for free before check in AND after check out.) Great location already - fifteen minutes walk from UW campus - and improving more with Light Rail station going in across the street.

Great location already - fifteen minutes walk from UW campus - and improving more with Light Rail station going in across the street. The lobby decor alone is worth a stay, before you even get to their sumptuous beds and stunning rooms. Will stay here again or at any other Graduate location, no questions asked. Read less

What a beautiful hotel, but...We booked this hotel for the rooftop views, however when we came back after a day of exploring the city, we tried to go to the rooftop bar, and were denied. The young receptionist asked if we had been drinking anywhere else, we said 'yes, a few other places around town' She then said, 'Well, I cant let you up there… Read more

The young receptionist asked if we had been drinking anywhere else, we said 'yes, a few other places around town' She then said, 'Well, I cant let you up there then'. We weren't inebriated or anything of the sort...we just wanted to go up and buy one of their $15 cocktails and enjoy the views...but denied after spending several hundred just to stay here. Read less

Wanted to charge extra to go to rooftop on July 4th even though had a room booked. Got back to hotel late evening, would not let my wife and I go to rooftop bar because the lady at reception asked if we had “already been drinking?” Answered yes, denied access. Was no where near inebriated. Too bad, nice hotel, horrible service

Beautiful hotel, but quite noisy. The lift appears to be in a central column in the building, and can be heard in the room. Chic and very popular bar on the top floor (The Mountaineering Club)......meaning that the lift was in regular use until the early hours. Sound insulation isn’t great.....as well as the lift we could clearly hear the traffic… Read more
Beautiful hotel, but quite noisy. The lift appears to be in a central column in the building, and can be heard in the room. Chic and very popular bar on the top floor (The Mountaineering Club)......meaning that the lift was in regular use until the early hours. Sound insulation isn’t great.....as well as the lift we could clearly hear the traffic noise outside and people talking in the corridor and adjacent rooms. Parking......valet only at $35 per day, and there isn’t much else available locally (not overnight anyway). I parked in the adjacent lot and paid ‘overnight’.....timings weren’t shown until I paid, but it expired at 04:59hrs! Lots of local small shops and cafes around, but we had to walk quite a distance (or drive) to find restaurants or shopping which suited us (personal opinion). Main Seattle shopping area (and Pike Place) was a 10-15 minute drive away. Read less
