For a casual and youthful hotel experience, try The Graduate, where pets of any size are welcomed for $25 per night. This hotel employs a laid-back vibe and college-themed décor scheme! You won’t feel like you’re staying in a dorm, though. This 4-star hotel includes free Wi-Fi, plenty of meeting space, bikes for borrow, and rooms with large flat-screen TVs. Make sure to start your day with a breakfast pizza from Poindexter Coffee in the lobby before heading out into the heart of the vibrant Short North Arts District, near Ohio State University’s campus.
