Back to Cool With Destination Hotels

Hip hotels for the hip student in your life

It wasn’t all that long ago when college hotels were simply bland, dull pit stops. But lately, a number of hotels across the country have been stepping up their game, by marrying hip design and amenities that celebrate their unique locations.

The Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, DC – which is home to Georgetown, George Washington, and American University – boasts a bustling rooftop bar with unbeatable views of the nation’s capital. Located right on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Carolina Inn oozes plenty of Southern charm and hospitality with its “Fridays on the Porch,” a weekly outdoor celebration with music and food specials.

Families of students of the University of Washington will appreciate Motif Seattle’s convenient location to some of the city’s top attractions, along with its buzzy Frolik Kitchen+Cocktails. In Richmond, the Quirk Hotel, with its hip, whimsical decor, makes for a terrific home base for those traveling with students from VCU Richmond and University of Richmond. Even better? If you book a 3-night stay at any of these properties by September 30th, you’ll receive a savings up to 30% off.
