Graduate Hotels, the boutique hotel chain that lives in the heart of university communities across the country, is celebrating the opening of its tenth location with a deal that lets you stay for $10 per night. Guests will receive one night of their stay for $10, and a complimentary room upgrade.

This offer is valid for stays through April 20, 2018 when you book before January 31, 2018. Use the offer code “TEN” during checkout on the Graduate Hotels web site to receive this deal. A two-night minimum stay is required, and room upgrades are subject to availability.   

Graduate Hotels’ tenth location, Graduate Minneapolis, joins hotels in Berkeley, Athens, Ann Arbor, Madison, Oxford, Tempe, Charlottesville, Lincoln, and Richmond. Most properties are situated at the heart of these college towns, so they’re perfectly situated if you have plans on campus.

Rates vary by property, but we found rooms for about $100 per night in Charlottesville, $125 in Minneapolis, $130 in Richmond, and $146 in Berkeley. With the $10 offer applied on a two-night stay, this brings the nightly rates down to $55, $68, $70, and $78 per night, respectively.    

Each property is designed to emulate a collegiate vibe. Look for room keys that look like school IDs, and appropriate school colors throughout. Keep an eye peeled for portraits of famous alumni or a nostalgic snack on the menu. Complimentary WiFi, Malin + Goetz bathroom amenities, and 24-hour fitness centers are standard, and this pet-friendly chain offers dog owners a complimentary BarkBox, a bowl, and pet blanket.

Graduate Minneapolis, Minnesota: Situated in the middle of the University of Minnesota campus near Coffman Memorial Union, the newest addition to the Graduate Property has a chilled-out, Minnesota-lake house vibe. Hang out in the main lobby where you'll find table-top hockey, an indoor fire pit, and The Beacon, an all-American family restaurant perfect for watching the game or reconnecting with old classmates.

Graduate Oxford, Mississippi: Graduate Oxford sits smack in the middle of the city center near Ole Miss. The perfect place to cheer on the Landsharks (or Rebel Black Bears, for older alums), the hotel is within walking distance of Square Brooks, City Grocery, and The Library sports bar. Stay in a cozy double-queen suite or go all out in the lavish “William Morris Suite” which includes a living room, second bathroom, and entertainment-sized TV.

Graduate Richmond, Virginia: Near Virginia Commonwealth University, this historic property is one of just a few Graduate Hotels to feature a rooftop pool and bar lounge. Grab a bite and drinks there or at the lobby cafe, Brookfield. Large groups will appreciate the suite room that features a king-sized bed, sleeper sofa, and a bunk bed.

Graduate Berkeley, California: Channel your inner bohemian at this downtown Berkeley hotel that’s just a 5-minute walk from the UC Berkeley campus. This property, formerly the historical Hotel Durant, is teeming with history and UCB nostalgia. Just steps from the Telegraph Avenue shops, this is the perfect location to explore what this charming college town.
