2019 is shaping up to be a busy year for Graduate Hotels — just take a look at our Coming Soon list. We’re set to plant our flag in 10 new college towns over the next 12 months.

We told you a bit about Graduate Eugene and Graduate Annapolis back in August, and now we have a preview of three more Graduate hotels to share with you.

Here’s a look at what’s in store for Graduate Providence, Graduate Fayetteville and Graduate Columbus.



Colorful guestroom design at Graduate Providence

We love reimagining a historic hotel. Graduate Seattle and Graduate Berkeley are both great examples of that.

To update the iconic Biltmore Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, our design team pumped up the color palette and added some Graduate humor for good measure. The parakeet painting in the living space is a tribute to the Farrelly brothers, who were born and raised in Rhode Island. You may have heard of their little film Dumb and Dumber. Clearly, we have.

Other inspiration comes from nearby Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. College-era photos of famed alums, from actress Laura Linney to musician David Byrne, grace the guestroom walls.

The hotel officially opens as Graduate Providence at the end of March. Stay tuned for details about opening events and celebrations.



Plaid walls in the guestroom at Graduate Columbus

With wallpaper and curtains in scarlet and gray plaid, there’s no mistaking this guestroom is geared toward fans of The Ohio State University.

Graduate Columbus celebrates OSU notables, including Olympian Jesse Owens and astronaut John Glenn. You’ll also spot a nod to everyone’s favorite spooky series, Goosebumps. Yep, author R.L. Stine is a Buckeye, too.

The hotel sits in the heart of the city’s vibrant Short North Arts District, surrounded by dozens of shops, galleries and restaurants. Culturally rich, the neighborhood is known as the “art and soul of Columbus.”



Colorful guestroom design at Graduate Fayetteville

Time to start working on our Hog Call. Graduate Hotels is heading into Razorback territory.

University of Arkansas alums will quickly spot the familiar outline of campus mainstay Old Main in the headboard design. Throughout Graduate Fayetteville, splashy, abstract patterns and bold prints (hello, camouflage carpet) celebrate the town’s artistic core.

The hotel is right off Fayetteville’s historic Downtown Square and just a few blocks from action-packed Dickson Street.
