Graduate Columbia

This hotel has been hand-picked by the StayBoutique team and verified as an authentic boutique hotel

Location

1619 Pendleton St, Columbia, SC 29201

Right in the heart of downtown Columbia on the scenic campus of the University of South Carolina, Graduate Columbia blends historic grandeur with pops of prep for a stay that feels like home.

Our South Carolina retreat boasts local charm, with Gamecock-inspired headboards and echoes of “Oot Oot.” Plaids, chevron and touches of grass cloth come together in guestrooms. In the lobby, bright colors and cheery florals pop against dark wood paneling. Take in the bookish surroundings at our lobby-level café, Poindexter Coffee, and fuel your muse with a caffeinated beverage or two.

Whether you’re in town cheering on the Gamecocks, exploring the Five Points neighborhood or taking in the history of South Carolina’s capital, we’re here to make your stay memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff will guide you around Columbia, so that you feel like a local even if it’s your first time in town.
