    Completely remodeled.

    We stayed here 3 or 4 years ago and at that time it was worn. We stayed again and it has been completely remodeled. It is a great place to stay very close to Lake Michigan. We parked on the street with no problem.

    Great boutique hotel!

    Beautifully restored hotel with a bar and restaurant that are currently closed. We were able to sit in the bar and relax. Neighborhood setting just a few blocks off of the restaurants and shops. Historic elevator fits 3-4 people max but we rarely had to wait. Heated floors in the bathrooms...bath products inventive and fun. We look forward to staying again when there is food! Loved our stay.

    Fantastic & Unique!

    This is a fabulous hotel with a very unique feel. The staff is exemplary and could not be any better. It’s a great vintage style hotel a wonderful neighborhood just blocks away from downtown Evanston and Northwestern University. The whole hotel has a wonderful vintage video but modern amenities, and the fact that every room is individually decorated is just great. It’s a fresh feeling From your traditional hotel design and appearance. The bathrooms were beautifully remodeled with a fabulous shower. I had stayed with Graduate previously while traveling in Ann Arbor, and I would definitely keep the graduate hotels in mind while traveling to other cities as they are expanding. They have definitely earned their spot as my absolute favorite hotel property on the north side of Chicago, And I am looking forward to my next stay with them! They even have a Home Alone themed room which I hope to stay in next time!
