Graduate Auburn Hotel

Saying goodbye to Anders Bookstore was hard, but the new business taking over their spot on Magnolia Avenue has spirits high in anticipation! Graduate Hotels has officially announced its plans for the Graduate Auburn Hotel, soon to be located downtown.

About the Graduate Auburn

The Graduate Hotels are a line of luxury, handcrafted hotels located in university towns across the United States and the United Kingdom. Each one has a bustling atmosphere filled with local charm and nostalgic nods to the collegiate world. And soon, Downtown Auburn will be home to its very own, which also happens to be the first in Alabama!

Located at 212 W. Magnolia Ave., the Graduate Auburn Hotel is set to be a five-story, 177-key hotel with two spots to grab a bite or drink. And in addition, there will be 10,000 square feet of space for meetings and banquets.

So, get excited! This unique new hotel is expected to open in 2024.
