Our Hotel

Graduate  is more than just a place to lay your head. While you’re with us, sip on an espresso at Brookfield, grab a drink at our rooftop bar, Byrd House, and make a splash in our outdoor pool. We’re the perfect spot for Rams– and their dogs! Pets stay free at Graduate Hotels.

We’re conveniently located near Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, a hop from the airport and knee deep in the 400-year-old history of America’s legends and lore.

From our mod-meets-preppy indoor event space to our chic and easy rooftop bar & pool, we offer the perfect celebratory spot for all meetings and festivities. Whether you’re hosting a corporate luncheon or birthday bash, we have spaces which accommodate small-to-large groups.
