College student not necessary to make Ann Arbor a travel destination.

In addition to the University of Michigan, visitors can enjoy the Matthaei Botanical Gardens, the Ann Arbor Hands-On children’s museum, the National Theater Live, food, shopping and, in the winter, winter sports.

In addition to the above, here are five reasons to visit The Graduate Hotel and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Location, location, location:

Across the street from the University of Michigan campus at Huron and State, it is perfect for parents visiting their college kids looking for comfy and upscale accommodations.

You can’t beat the location not only in terms of proximity to the campus but also the fact that The Graduate Hotel is within walking distance to many chic restaurants and bars.

Prefer to explore on two wheels? Complimentary bike rentals are available as well.

 The rooms are modern with a whimsical touch to them.

Nothing about The Graduate Hotel in Ann Arbor is ordinary. Stepping inside the lobby and you’ll see chalkboards on the walls with complex mathematical formulas.

There are comfy sofas to converse or grab a seat at the longest dining table ever. And rooms are quiet for sleeping.

This may be a college town but there won’t be any loud hooligans running through the hotel late at night, you’ll sleep peacefully in your bed.

Pamper your pooch.

Bring fido along for the ride, they stay for free. Plus, when you check in at The Graduate Hotel with your dog, he’ll receive a complimentary BarkBox as well as a bowl and blanket to enjoy during his or her stay.

 Cocktail carts at your disposable

Enjoy a nightcap from the cocktail cart in the lobby. The bar/ restaurant in The Graduate Ann Arbor is cozy and well appointed. It would make for a nice intimate dinner or for cocktails after returning from an evening out. But you don’t have to head there to enjoy a pre or post-dinner cocktail.

Grab a seat at the communal table in the lobby and choose from a handful of drinks like a Daiquiri or Manhattan. They may even have a S’mores bar setup.

A hearty breakfast to stay, or go

Grab breakfast sandwiches and coffee at the counter in the lobby. Lots of great choices including hearty sandwiches and fruit cups. If you’re in a rush grab these to go and be on your way.

Or take them back to your room and enjoy breakfast in your room as you catch up on a bit of work before you head out for a day of fun in Ann Arbor.

Because it is not only the students that should look forward to their return to school. It’s the perfect time for mom and dad to have some fun as well.
