    Weekend out

    This was our second Graduate Hotel location stay. Nice layout. Bummer that most services still not available due to COVID. Also not sure why they need to charge for on site parking. The rooms are stylish, but bathrooms small and not 100% hair free- yuck!! The beds are super comfy!!

    Enjoyed our stay, however, did wake up to a few bits on my lower arm and wrist. Hmmm? Not sure what kind of bites, but definitely itchy and big. Bar is open. other services are limited.
