    The Jefferson Hotel has a history as rich as its opulent appearance, though we should note that a few things have changed since 1895. Naturally, the running water in each room, electric lighting and elevators are still standard – but you’ll notice that the Nespresso coffee maker and high-speed internet are from the present century. The menu at LeMaire still uses local ingredients, but with a New American twist. As for the alligators in the fountain, they’re merely decorative these days.

    The Graduate believes that you should graduate to a higher quality hotel. Skip the roadside motel like an early morning math class and spend the night in one of their spunky suites. Preppy plaids and a small workstation in the suites are reminiscent of your dorm days, but the undergrad utilities stop at the ping pong table in the lobby. The rooftop pool is where you’ll find the cool upperclassmen and bar bites that are far from microwavable noodles.
