I’m glad that my usual choice in Durham was unavailable. That’s how I found Siena in Chapel Hill. Siena is genuinely a boutique hotel. There are only 4 floors. Every room has a full size French door window that opens. Which translates to fresh air on demand! Every element stands out at Siena: Rooms: The room was bright, very well... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way back home from visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Chapel Hill was the halfway point for us. The Sunday night after Thanksgiving was quiet downtown and made for a great time to walk around and check things out. The hotel is very lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer and... More

I have stayed here several times while visiting my daughters in college. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated, quiet. The restaurant is exceptional, as is the service. The free shuttle to campus is a welcome amenity.

Upon arrival, I was met by Zack at the front entrance. Within 20 minutes, I was checked in, bags in the room, free valet parking and this allowed the gift of focusing on the purpose of my travels, my daughter. Every aspect of the hotel’s care and service.... the front desk, housekeeping, in-room dining, and of course the bar, with... More

We had a two night stay Staff- Great from the valet to check in and housekeeping. The staff would make even an "average" hotel excellent. This hotel was above average and the staff made it excellent. Overall- the facility is a small "boutique" in the Marriott Autograph collection. Very welcoming atmosphere when you arrive. Very young and energetic staff. The... More

I've been staying at the Siena for many years because it offers comfort, excellent service and good food. I haven't stayed for a few years so I was delighted that it still offers those key ingredients. Location is a bit out of Chapel Hill but the shuttle will take you where you need to go. The rooms are very comfortable... More

Very nice stay! We booked here because we were visiting family nearby. Our room was beautiful, bed was cozy, marble bathroom very nice. Service was excellent. We enjoyed our breakfast at the hotel restaurant, which seemed appropriately priced for a hotel. Appreciated a Keurig in our room and coffee and hot cider in the lobby, although there is also a...

We booked this hotel because of the ratings and location. We had college tours on the same day at UNC and Duke. We were given a large, room on the opposite side of the main road, and it was so quiet, and we had a nice view out back. The bellman, front desk and restaurant staff were so friendly and... More

The Siena is a great option for staying in the chapel hill/Durham area. I took my wife shopping at south point mall then for dinner in chapel hill. The staff is attentive and friendly, the room is very nice, and the bed is super comfortable. 4 star hotel all the way.

I stayed at the Siena with a friend who was visiting from England-a nice distance from the airport. The room was immaculate, with a large shower and very quiet. We ate in hotel restaurant which offered a lovely menu with a gluten free option for my friend. The staff was incredibly friendly and I will definitely return.
