Graduate Athens

Top choice hotel in Athens
Image by

This wonderfully designed boutique hotel, the first of a college-campus chain, is drowning in sexy retro hipness, from potted plants inside old-school, Dewey decimal card–catalog filing cabinets in the lobby to the sweet Crosley turntables and classic video games in the suites.

Local accents, such as chalkboard art of the chemical formula for sweet tea, fortify local allure. Also on-site is a great coffeehouse, bar and grill and live-music venue, all inside an old Confederate iron foundry.
