Welcome to Graduate Richmond—where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.
Graduate Richmond is conveniently located near Virginia Commonwealth University, a hop from the airport and knee deep in the 400-year-old history of America’s legends and lore. A championship collection of golf greens courses through the James River region and revolutionary state capital, making Graduate the smartest place to stay in town!
Our warm walnut paneled lobby nods at the impressive and courageous past of local tennis luminary Arthur Ashe. Preppy elements mixed with a mid-century minimalism and a hint of history help tell his story. Perforated vinyl seating, cable knit details and a collection of his signature frames displayed in Brookfield bring his spirit to life. Monument lined cobblestone streets beckon the art and architecture of the past – inspiring the art collection that charms our halls, walls and cozy navy guest rooms.
Grab a bite in Brookfield, our lobby café and watering hole, or get your consummate collegiate on in the lobby-level game room, complete with a Shuffleboard, Pool Table and a Ping Pong table, this hang out will keep you preoccupied for hours. Then head up to Byrd House, our seasonal rooftop pool and bar perched sixteen floors up serving a twist on concession stand favorites, sporting cocktails and a whole lotta fun.
So whether you’re in town rallying for the Rams, dropping by for a show at The National or in town for a meeting or meet up at the 17th Street Farmer’s Market, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you to and around Richmond so that you feel like a local, at home again even if it’s your first time in town.
Our hotel rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate—be ready to be inspired.
