Visit Graduate Cincinnati – a Pet-Friendly Hotel

I have connected with other dog accounts on Instagram who want to be able to travel with their pet. Several have asked me for pet-friendly hotel ideas in Cincinnati so I’m excited to partner with Graduate Cincinnati to share with you about their pet-friendly hotel!

I’m not being dramatic when I say, if it weren’t for Vince I’m not sure I would have come out of the stay-at-home orders so easily. Having Vince during the two months I was quarantined at home alone was a great distraction because his routine kept my routine.

I have a nephew who is starting college this fall and I began thinking of all the first-year students who had an odd end to their high school career and now are starting college during a pandemic. Not only are they leaving the familiarity of their home, some are leaving their beloved pets!

Wouldn’t it be nice to not only get a college visit from your parents, but also your furry friend?!

Vince and I had the pleasure of visiting Graduate Cincinnati, a pet-friendly hotel near the University of Cincinnati. It’s the newest property to open in the Graduate Hotels collection.

What’s unique about Graduate is they have hotels in college towns that embody the youthful optimism and nostalgia of school days in a bright new way, with a mantra of “We Are All Students”. The design of the hotels include vibrant decor and nods to the heritage and history of each individual community.

Speaking of the decor, it is a must see! Visitors can play i spy throughout the property and find references to Cincinnati from the neon wall in the lounge to the basketball hardwood floor in the entrance to the Crosley car! Even the carpet has flying pigs!

The restaurant at Graduate Cincinnati is named Fiona’s, after the hippopotamus at Cincinnati Zoo and behind the front desk is a replica of the Kenner Toys mural on Court Street. Oh and the room keys? They are Student ID cards of local celebrities and UC alumni!
