Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. Located in the heart of the Short North Arts District, Graduate Columbus is surrounded by dozens of shops, galleries and restaurants, and is just a hop from The Ohio State University campus.
Settle into our warm, tailored spaces, where plaids in scarlet and gray mingle with punchy pops of color. Our lobby chandelier is in tune with ‘The Best Damn Band in the Land’ and guestrooms salute the state of Ohio with gold-medal-worthy details. Take in nods to Olympic-icon Jesse Owens and astronaut John Glenn. The custom art collection may give you ‘Goosebumps’ — or get your stomach growling.
Hungry? In the lobby, fuel up on a coffee and light breakfast item from Trophy Room or grab a quick bite at our neighboring Shake Shack before heading out to discover Columbus.
So, whether you’re in town rallying for a Buckeyes win, visiting the Columbus Zoo or exploring Short North’s art and culinary scene, we’re here to make your stay memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff will guide you around Columbus, so that you feel like a local even if it’s your first time in town.
Welcome to Columbus!
