The check-in counter was surrounded by bookshelves. My key was a replica of a student ID. The lamps in my room were shaped like trophies.
I recently stayed at the Graduate Hotel in Oxford, Mississippi, whimsically designed to reflect the spirit of the University of Mississippi. The lobby even has pink hardwood floors and blue-and-white seersucker curtains inspired by the men’s outfits at the school’s legendary football tailgates.
This hotel brand, started in 2014, builds properties in college towns. There are 12 locations, including Athens, Charlottesville and Ann Arbor, Michigan, with eight more slated to open soon.
