Nice Italian style building located a few miles from downtown Chapel Hill restaurants. Easy entrance and exit from hotel parking lot. There was always a number of spaces left fro us to park even after going out for dinner. Lobby has marbled floors with 2 TVs and 2 computers. There is a small lounge on the right when you enter...

I have read all of the reviews and I have to say I didn't see what everyone was so excited about. It is a very nice hotel. The staff when I arrived was very professional and courteous. Rooms were large and very comfortable. Water in the shower was lukewarm at best. The fire alarm going off at 1:30 revealed a... More

I have stayed at the Siena on multiple occasions and have always had an outstanding experience. Every time I return it is like visiting family, the staff always remembers my wife and I and goes out of their way to ensure every faucet of our stay is exceptional. Anthony (the hotel manager) is amazing and always goes the extra mile... More

Large, well-appointed rooms with marble baths and comfy beds. We stayed in a top floor room facing the back parking lot and it was quiet. The service sets this hotel apart; it is outstanding. We were greeted every time we came or went, the restaurant staff remembered us from the first day, and we took the shuttle to dinner every... More

Did use hotel shuttle and they... More

This is a very unique hotel- Italian theme, beautiful bathrooms, huge room with a very comfortable bed. But I think their best attribute is the people - very friendly and helpful. When you walk in the door you are greeted and escorted to check in, which took seconds. We also used the free shuttle downtown and it was great- quick... More

My girlfriend and I visited Chapel Hill in order to look at UNC as our next academic step. We fell in love with this hotel the minute we walked in. They checked us in at 1 pm (Check in time is at 4 pm). The bathroom is spacious with walk in shower. Very clean and neat hotel. We will definitely... More
