Our Hotel

Graduate Seattle  is more than just a place to lay your head. While you’re with us, climb up to the rooftop bar, Mountaineering Club for the best views of the city and take a bite of  our famous breakfast sandos at Poindexter Coffee. We’re the perfect spot for Huskies – and their dogs! Pets stay free at Graduate Hotels.

Our historic 1930s Art Deco digs, just a ten-minute stroll to UW’s campus, sits proudly in Seattle’s University District. Purple pride runs deep in the lush lobby, inviting Huskies past and present. Over 36 feet of plaidly clad sofas ease up to a communal coffee table warmly perched fireside. An installation of seashell mobiles dances above, an amped up wall invites conversation and jewel toned rooms wink at our storied past. High above, our scenic rooftop bar serves up hues and mountain views of the inspired landscape.

For groups of two to 200, Graduate Seattle has the right-size ballroom, boardroom or breakout room for your event. Let us host your Seattle wedding, U-Dub meet-up or business meeting. Our creative events and culinary teams will work with you to customize a memorable experience that perfectly suits your gathering.
