SCAD Graduation: Cool Hotel, Hot Tickets

Savannah GA Inns and Hotels card

Welcome to Savannah, Georgia!

Got a soon-to-be SCAD grad on your family tree or your Facebook page? If so, you need to get busy. Graduation ceremonies are June 2, and the Thunderbird Inn is already half way to full that weekend.

The SCAD Class of 2012 (Savannah College of Art and Design for those of you who missed acronym practice) has grown so large that it will take three ceremonies at the Savannah Civic Center to fit all the pomp and circumstance in. Read the schedule and details at http://www.scad.edu/experience/events/commencement/index.cfm.

Or you could just take our word for it. The largest, most comprehensive ceremony starts at 9 a.m., with seating opening at 8 a.m. Translation: you’re gonna want to get here Friday. And the later of the two degree presentation ceremonies doesn’t wrap up until 6 p.m. Translation: stay Saturday night, so you can celebrate in style.

You can drop a fortune on hotel rooms in Savannah – but thanks to the Thunderbird Inn, you don’t have to. A room with two double beds is $146/night, and king rooms are $159/night. Or splurge for the amenity-rich retro king rooms at $175 a night. (Plus tax, of course – but as someone smart enough to know a college graduate, you expected that.) And parking is both available and free at the Thunderbird, and we’re within walking distance of the graduation venue.

No wonder the Thunderbird Inn is already half-full for SCAD graduation weekend!

And don’t worry if not everyone in your party can score a ticket to the graduation (they’re in limited supply, you know.) All rooms at the Thunderbird come with free Wi-Fi. Hey, we may be retro but we’re also the hippest hotel in Savannah!
