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.
