Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's right across the street from Arizona State University and just a skip to Mill Avenue and Gammage Theater, and like its sister Graduate properties, boasts the feel of a five-star resort with the warm, welcoming surroundings of an intimate boutique hotel.
  • Sleek, modern Hayden Ballroom offers gorgeous views of the distant mountains through oversized windows, while the Rooftop provides an awesome spot for outdoor affairs, with a built-in bar, shade-providing pergola, and spacious lounge areas.
  • Get "home away from home" vibes in their cheerful, eclectic rooms—all Graduate accommodations boast super-comfy beds, Malin + Goetz toiletries, and cheeky, fun decor that references local style and culture.
