About Graduate Ann Arbor

GETTING HITCHED?

From bridal showers, to rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions, we have the ideal space to host your special day and all the festivities leading up to it. Our classically elegant ballrooms can be rented partially for intimate receptions or in full for over-the-top bashes. For brides who wish to incorporate an outdoor element in Ann Arbor, we offer a private third floor terrace to continue the celebrations outside. Topped off by our award winning catering, our creative culinary team will work with you to create a custom menu that perfectly reflects the soon-to-be-wed couple.

OLD-SCHOOL SUPPER CLUB & KINDRED SPIRITS

Welcome to Graduate Ann Arbor – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Graduate Ann Arbor is ideally located across the street from University of Michigan’s campus and a couple blocks from Nickels Arcade. We’re right at the corner of Huron and State streets amid the bustle of the town’s best restaurants, shops and game day buzz, making Graduate the smartest place to stay in town!

A cozy club feel envelops the hotel lobby where nods to the arts, counterculture and political scene of this famously progressive community speak to its storied history. Hand-painted mosaic patterns that sweep across wide-planked wood floors, handsome millwork, leather clad columns and grand center staircase patchworked in Persian rugs add a warm, layered look throughout. Traditional library furnishings are recovered for a twist on the classics, while commissioned murals and graffitied manifestos invite discussion and good humor.

Gather some Wolverines for a post-game brew, grab a light bite at our café counter or convene at our 40-foot communal wood table; it’s the perfect hub for conversation and camaraderie.

    We had a great experience with our wedding reception at the Graduate. Patti was great to work with and really went above and beyond to make our wedding day special! We loved the Terrace ballroom and our guests commented on how great the space was! We did an outdoor cocktail hour which was really beautiful with the sunset and terrace greenery. Our food was delicious and the chef made multiple meals with special dietary accommodations. We loved the unique vibe of the hotel and our guests enjoyed staying at the same location as our reception. The location of the hotel is right downtown Ann Arbor, which is perfect for wedding festivities and convenience for guests. We felt like the quality of the service staff, linens, cocktail tables, etc was great and especially recommend Patti for planning your event! We loved having our wedding reception at a memorable venue and would highly recommend it to others!

    I will preface by saying that I didn't have my wedding at The Graduate, but had a block of hotel rooms and was planning on having all our wedding weekend festivities (rehearsal, getting ready, Sunday Brunch) hosted at the hotel.
    Unfortunately, working with the Graduate Hotel has been a disappointing experience. I've had a block of hotel rooms for my wedding this summer booked since September; but over the past three months I have made multiple attempts to contact the group sales coordinator to book the Presidential Suite and set up a post-wedding brunch with no success. First, I called their group sales coordinator and asked if she could please send me the invoice for booking their suite for the weekend. After waiting two weeks, I emailed her a request to book the room, so we could pay the deposit. After an additional two weeks, I called to follow up on the email, at which time I was told, "You're on my list," and that I would be sent whatever was needed to secure the room. I waited another week before calling their general manager (who I have not heard back from in the past two weeks); during which time I realized that they clearly did not need my business and the idea that I was chasing them around when I was trying to book the most expensive room in their hotel and spend more money on a brunch, seemed silly. The whole experience has been so bizarre and their horrible customer service has been eye opening.
