It made its way … lol! Best hotel on all counts. Great location, great staff and the hotel is just awesome and fun! Great for dogs
Come get an ice cold Frose at Graduate Iowa City
We didn’t have any wash clothes in our room and housekeeping was closed. The Carrier air conditioner made an inconsistent buzzing noise making it very difficult to sleep. No air vent in the tiny bathroom to vent the humidity. Lastly, the room smelled of mildew due to water damage to the ceiling near the windows. I do not recommend.

Let the Firefighters have early access to there rooms they are in the lobby....
Did you all cancel Reverand Raven and the Chain Smokin' Alter Boys?
So, we checked in on Friday morning. We had 2 rooms, called ahead on Thursday to ask about early check in, they said over the phone that it should be no problem, and as soon as the room was ready we could check in. Got there Friday morning, they said early check in was a no-no but they would make an exception. We had 2 rooms for the weekend, only 1 was ready, no big deal. Went to a few of our old haunts, bought some new Hawkeye gear for the game, and returned to the hotel. Asked if our 2nd room was ready. Front desk staff was rude, informed us that early check in was not an option, and that no rooms were ready. I asked what time check in was, they said 3 pm. I said, "It's 3:16 pm, I'd like my room now." (literally this entire exchange happened after 3 pm normal check in.) I received no drink tickets (I don't know if my mother in law received any or not when she checked in early). The toilet in the room barely flushed, and only after holding the handle down for 10+ seconds. The wall paper is peeling off the walls. The pool was empty - literally no water. Went to Poindexters for coffee one morning, 1 person working, we were first in line with a line out the door. When we walk up, the 1 person working is dealing with a customer who said the cream was sour. They removed the cream from the counter in the dining area, but when we asked for cream for the coffee they poured it directly in the cup...from the same carton they had just removed from the dining room (not that we knew this until big swig had been removed). we were late or an appointment so it just went in the trash. Now, the hotel made it right (I think) by not charging us for parking to make up for it. This hotel has gone to extremes to make the decor match Iowa City, and the decor is super awesome. But, make sure toilets flush. Get yourself together. C'mon!
Wally loves the toys that came in the BarkBox the Graduate Hotel gave him! This place is definitely Wally-approved!
Last time I was in Iowa city was 1981! Yep, it looks a little different! One of the very best additions is your hotel. The room decor is a delight and love how you embrace Iowa City on so many levels. Had 2 great nights there. The staff was supper friendly and kind, the best avocado toast ever. Enjoyed Poindexter and later wine in Gene's. Highly recommend and now i want to try all the others!
Air conditioning will not work. Stuck at 76. Tried calling and Facebook messaging and got no answer.
hI!! :D
Took an Uber to meet a friend who was staying at the graduate, only to get dropped off in a dirty alley.. The driver apologized and explained that Uber, Lyft and cab services are not allowed to drive you to the entrance..
Why am I treated like the help just because I do not drive?

Conveniently located in the downtown Ped Mall, Graduate Iowa City is just a 20-minute walk from Kinnick Stadium and close to the University of Iowa campus.
