Feel at home at The Graduate, Evanston's tribute to Northwestern and its cozy college town. Nestled near the Northwestern University campus and the Lake Michigan shore, Graduate Evanston is close to everywhere Wildcats want to be. Filled with classic fabrics, plenty of patterns and wood-turned details in the furniture, the rooms combine the cozy repose of vintage décor with all the comforts of a modern hotel. Stories of timeless charm can be found everywhere, from the actual books throughout the room to the hanging caricatures of famous Northwestern alumni.
Northwestern’s literary history comes alive in the lobby too. The books of authors who’ve previously stayed in the space fill the vitrine cabinet that serves as our front desk. With Persian rugs covering the herringbone floor and Northwestern-purple paneling, the whole space reflects the rich history of this university town.
