Although I’m a Michigan State gal at heart, I can’t help but be in L-O-V-E with the adorable collegiate style of The Graduate Hotel that pays homage to the hotels hometown university, U of M.

I've been invited to stay tomorrow night and I couldn’t be more excited. I mean, have you seen it?

Graduate Hotel Ann Arbor has a super cozy club feel with walls dressed up flannel and beds draped in preppy plaids. As if the beautiful ascetic wasn’t enough to make me swoon, the location does.

The hotel is located at the gateway to State Street, directly across from campus and just a quick stroll to Kerrytown and Main Street. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to get out and enjoy all the shopping and dining in Ann Arbor with the comfiest place to retire for the night.

Although Ann Arbor has plenty of dining options, you really don’t have to look any further than the hotels own options.

Graduate Coffee offers a great coffee selection and a menu of local favorites. This is the perfect place to get your caffeine fix before spending the day shopping.

Whether you are going to stay in for the night or go out, don’t forget to stop by the hotel’s Allen Rumsey Cocktail Lounge. The recently debuted lounge reflects the same cozy club vibe of the hotel, with great selection of cocktails. They even serve 40 oz. of rosé… this place really gets me.

 While you’re in A2 make sure to stop by some of other favorite spots:

Fred’s – is my jam for the best acai bowls and smoothies around. This is a must stop spot for a feel-good breakfast or lunch.

Frita Batidos – This Cuban culture inspired joint is my favorite. Chorizo burger with shoestring French fries on top. Say no mas.

Last Word Bar – If you’re looking for a great cocktail, go to the last word bar. They have an amazing staff who creates totally original drinks. I love to try anything Mezcal.

Isalita -No trip to Ann Arbor is complete without going to Isalita. Tacos, ceviche && corn elote = yum city.

Cafe Zola – For food that looks as good as it tastes, go to Café Zola. Who doesn’t love a good branzino?

Mani Osteria – From the wood fired pizzas to the pasta, this place will not disappoint. It a great place to have a date night, go with friends or solo to indulge in a bowl of pasta & glass of wine (or more.)

with love,
