“Auburn is a quintessential college town oozing with tradition and charm. It was never about whether we wanted to be in Auburn, but always about finding the right site. Sitting at the corner of Wright Street and W Magnolia Avenue, steps away from Toomer’s Corner, we couldn’t have found a better location,” said Ben Weprin, founder and CEO, Graduate Hotels. “Auburn boasts a rich heritage and tradition, and we’ve woven subtle and not-so-subtle nods to that history throughout every nook and cranny of the hotel. To truly immerse yourself in the Auburn experience, you must see it yourself.”
