Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. Prominently located on 6th Avenue, Graduate Eugene is next door to the Hult Center and just a hop from the University of Oregon campus.
Design throughout the hotel balances rich colors and textures, with earthy and comfortable elements that evoke a sense of nostalgia. Upon entering, guests are welcomed by Graduate Eugene’s front desk, which doubles as a shoe display case. The 43-shoe Nike collection, curated by avid Nike fan Ben Weprin, Graduate Hotels CEO and founder, features a range of models designed by the Eugene-founded company between inception and 1980. Guests can expect everything from vintage hiking boots and track spikes to bowling shoes and roller skates.
Guest room design establishes a unique sense of place for travelers, celebrating Oregon’s lush landscapes, Pacific Northwest heritage and the University of Oregon’s famed track and field program. Green corduroy headboards contrast with wood tones and wallpaper featuring the University of Oregon mascot. A custom waffle-iron lamp pays homage to Nike’s roots. Original artwork inspired by Oregon alums and the classic college movie Animal House, which was filmed in Eugene, is mounted on the walls.
Graduate Eugene also features a Topgolf Swing Suite experience available for golfers and non-golfers alike. The Topgolf Swing Suite offers simulator bays and a variety of virtual games – including the popular Topgolf target game, Hockey Shots, Baseball Pitching and more – paired with comfortable lounge seating, HDTVs and food and beverage service.
The Fir, located within the hotel’s open-plan lobby, serves comfort food staples with a hyper-regional focus. The beverage program speaks to the Pacific Northwest with an exclusively Oregon draft beer menu, Willamette Valley focused wine list and a seasonal frozen and classic cocktail menu. The lobby café, Poindexter, serves coffee roasted from acclaimed Coffee Manufactory and bread from local partner Reality Kitchen.
