Whether you’re still in school or looking for a break before diving back into work in August, Summertime always provides an excuse to take a trip. Just because you’re short on time or money to fly to Europe or visit Batuu, all hope is not lost. That is, if you take advantage of Graduate Hotel’s Hall Pass. An “All-You-Can-Stay” hotel bookings promotion available this summer for just $400.
The Magic of a College Town
As someone who grew up down the road from a university and just moved to Madison, WI for the summer, I’m a big believer in the magic of college town life. They’re often ranked as great places to live because of their unique blend of nature, small-town charm and city culture.
The more I travel for work, the more I find myself avoiding commitments involving airports during the summer. Or, even major tourist destinations that are more crowded and more expensive than other times of the year.
Graduate Hotels is a chain that embraces the college town way of life. Known for (coworking-esque) public spaces, location-specific design with a retro and varsity feel, they have have expanded to 15 markets since first opening in 2014. You can find Graduate Hotels in cities such as: Nashville , TN; Berkeley, CA; Seattle, WA and Providence RI to name a few.
Graduate Hotels was founded by Ben Weprin, on two key principles. #1 – there’s often demand for hotel rooms near colleges and universities and #2 – college towns are more than just their schools; they make for great vacation destinations too.
Enter the Graduate Hotels Hall Pass, the answer to: “How can you promote college towns as destinations WHILE demand is also low?” Or as I like to see it – how can I stay in as many hotels as possible for 30 days for $400? It’s really quite an impressive deal, especially if you are on a ramen/college student/startup budget or you’re booking last minute summer trips.
Graduate Hotels Graduate Hall Pass
Starting at 12 noon CST on June 17th, Graduate Hotels is selling a $400 “Graduate Hall Pass”. This covers an unlimited number of nights at every property from July 15th – August 15th. Even if you only stay a total of three or four nights, you’re saving money compared to the average typical nightly rate of $150.
The terms and conditions of this deal seem pretty straight forward:
- Hall Pass only covers room – all other food, beverage and incidentals are not included and must be covered with a valid credit card upon check-in.
- Reservations are subject to availability and must be made three days in advance.
- Bookings must be cancelled by 6pm, 24 hours prior to stay (unsure if there is a penalty).
- Cannot be combined with other offers or applied to existing reservations or group stays.
- Limit 5 consecutive or 10 total nights per location.
Who This Makes Sense For
There’s a few folks this offer is perfect for. If you’re looking to head off on a road trip, its an affordable way to be (relatively spontaneous). If you’re a family touring colleges, it’s almost a no brainer. Last but not least, if you’re a digital nomad looking to travel to larger cities, there’s locations that get you close enough – while saving some coin.
