If you haven’t heard of Graduate Hotels, you will soon—especially if you live near a college town, have a college-age kid, or plan on attending a college reunion anytime soon. The hospitality chain—so far, 13-strong and growing—has plans to expand its empire of design-focused, campus-based hotels to 12 more locations by 2020, including a foray into the Ivy League this year with openings in Providence and New Haven. Its goal is to have a total of 100 properties in its portfolio in the next 10 years.
One of its newest launches, the Graduate Seattle, caught our eye with its bold palette and playful take on Art Deco. Here are some of our favorite design moments from the new hotel, which opened this past November in the city’s University District.
