Travellers' Choice
The Collegiate Hotel is a luxury 40-room boutique hotel located across the street from Auburn University campus in Auburn, Alabama. Formerly a women’s dormitory, this historic property has been lovingly transformed into a chic and eclectic property that celebrates southern art and style. Order a cocktail at the hotel's glamorous lobby bar, relax on the spacious front porch then take in iconic views from the rooftop patio. At The Collegiate Hotel, our accommodations rival our views of the Auburn skyline. From luxury suites featuring two king beds to rooms with private patios and balconies, our 40 guestrooms offer unique and eclectic furnishings, punctuated by creatively curated original art. You won’t find any other lodging close to Auburn’s campus quite like The Collegiate Hotel. No matter which CoHo room you choose, we want your stay in the loveliest village on the plains to be truly unforgettable.

This is our 2nd stay at The Collegiate. The first stay (over a year ago) was so-so. This one has been exponentially better! The staff has been wonderfully helpful, from the reception staff to the roof bar servers to the manager (who is amazing!). Some procedures have necessarily changed due to the pandemic, but The Collegiate has adapted beautifully and safely. We will be back.

Hotel's Favourite
What a gem! Booked a last minute trip to Auburn to move our son into his apartment. Wanted to stay as close to campus as possible and was able to book a queen room at The Collegiate. Everything was perfect-location, furnishings, room size, lobby bar, outside patio, delightful owners, golf cart ride to downtown for dinner-this will be our go-to when we are visiting Auburn. You won’t regret staying at this adorable boutique hotel!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We love being parents go to spot to meet up with the kids. We are so glad you took advantage of the hotel's golf cart shuttle to get to our great restaurants and shops downtown. In this Alabama summer heat, a golf cart ride feels perfect. Hope to see you again soon!

My wife and I stayed at the Collegiate this past weekend while visiting our son. You can't beat the location, rooms, unique atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. We can't wait for our next trip in April.

We always stay at the collegiate when visiting our son at Auburn. Just a great staff, excellent service and accommodations. Great location and our favorite in Auburn. Rooftop bar has great atmosphere and we always make it a point to meet up with other parents for a glass of wine before using hotel golf cart transposed to dinner - never need to find a parking spot on game days!

My daughter and I stayed at this amazing little property while touring Auburn University. Such a great property, friendly, close walking access to the university. Great collegiate hotel that has all the spirit and pride of Auburn. I would highly reccommend (even though I may be fighting you for reservations) but this truly is a hidden gem. This will be our new home away from home for the next four years while visiting my daughter. "War Eagle"
