Graduate Hotels has announced plans to expand its portfolio with the addition of a new, 18-story boutique property in the Texas capital. The Graduate Austin will debut in 2025 in the city’s downtown area, just steps from the University of Texas at Austin campus and the Texas Capitol Mall.
“Austin has long been a dream location for Graduate,” said Tim Ryan, chief investment officer for Graduate Hotels. “The city’s distinct personality, creative energy, and adventurous spirit align perfectly. We’re huge fans of this community and all things UT, and we look forward to delivering a space that reflects and celebrates those sentiments through design that’s rooted in storytelling, gracious hospitality, best-in-class food and beverage offerings, and more.”
A design scheme by AJ Capital Partners will layer interiors with a blend of bespoke patterns, textures, and details that pay homage to Austin’s playful spirit as well as the university’s storied legacy. Classic architecture will be complemented by rich finishes include glazed terracotta, checkered cement tile, grass cloth wallpaper, retro fabrics, and warm, desert-inspired hues.
A café and lobby bar on the ground floor will anchor Graduate Austin’s dining offerings, while a rooftop restaurant and bar will crown the property along with a pool. Meeting and event space and a fitness center will round out the onsite amenities.
