Welcome to Graduate Athens – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.
Perhaps you’ve noticed our Graduate hotel has made a home in the Foundry, where blacksmiths crafted famed works like the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. We’re located near downtown and just a short walk from the scenic and historic UGA campus. Our boutique hotel has crafted the perfect setting for a wedding, company meet up and is the all-around smartest place to stay in Athens, GA.
The Foundry, our music venue, was reimagined to honor the site’s roots and preserve this piece of Athens’ fine past. The multi-tiered venue welcomes crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate with craft brews, fine food and new artists.
So whether you’re dropping in for a show, showing off the Alma mater or attending a meeting here in town, our Graduate hotel is here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you around Georgia’s finest – so that you feel like a local – even if it’s your first time in Athens.
Sit back with a copy of The Red and Black, grab a Terrapin Liquid Bliss and bite at the Foundry – this is the good life in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our Athens boutique 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. This is Graduate – get ready to be inspired.
“Ever crowned with praise and glory Georgia, hail to thee!”
