The nine-day run for the $90-a-night special stretches from the last day in June to the Sunday following Independence Day (so, yep, July 8).

Book through July 6, but keep the code handy, because you'll need it: 90VIP.

Look for an "interactive, 1920s-themed museum" to pop up in the hotel's lobby during the anniversary celebration. Postcards of the era, magazines, and more will be part of the display.

Be sure to depart your comfy room at 5 in the evening for a Champagne toast and historic tour.

And look for college-inspired design and details around the room (this is, after all, a Graduate hotel).

The rooms still have that straight-from-the-'20s swank-a-tude...

... and plenty of homey-haute creature comforts, with patterned chairs, cinematic artwork, and other stay-awhile flair. But linger not: The $90 deal won't last long, so book ASAP, before July 6 arrives.
