This hotel is very welcoming with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are an interesting mix of traditional and modern design which make this hotel unique. We enjoyed our stay very much and loved the decor.

We are in town visiting UNC and discovered this gem. The price is reasonable for the service and room. They couldn't have done more for us. They immediately responded to the few things we needed. I called down because I couldn't figure out the wifi. The girl downstairs, Emerald, actually offered to come up immediately to assist. I told her... More

Stayed here in March. Very friendly staff with very well appointed and large rooms. Bathroom was large and spacious with large walk-in shower. Front desk staff were beyond friendly. Linens could be updated. Would definitely stay here again.

I initially chose this hotel because I was able to get a discounted rate through my company. However, it turned out to be one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. The outside doors open automatically to welcome you. The bell staff opens the inner door and offers to help you with your bags. As soon as you step... More

The Siena Hotel is beautiful, the staff friendly and the location was perfect for us. We only stayed for a night,but what a comfortable night it was! Because of my status with Marriott we were upgraded to a Jr. Suite which was an overly large room at the end of the hall. It had a very comfortable bed, two comfy... More

Had a great stay here! Fantastic service, well appointed and comfortable rooms. Spent one night visiting UNC, the check in was quick and easy, the lobby was pleasant and reminded me of a European hotel. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable, the beds were so soft! The bathroom was big , the shower was great! Will definitely stay... More

The Siena never lets me down. They have excellent service, well appointed rooms, and great food. The location is great, close to all he Chapel Hill college activities. There are shuttles to downtown and to the games, yet it is afr enough away it is not a typical "college hotel".

We stayed for business purpose for about 10 days in February 2015. The hotel location and premises are fine. The staff is well behaved. February was cold with snow storm - the room is not sufficiently leak proof - this is general for NC as winter is not cold that much normally. The room heating worked well. Everyday turn down...

Room ( especially the bathroom) was lovely and staff very cheerful and attentive. Big beds, soft / quality sheets, very nice tile work in the bathroom. Easy parking access, front desk staff, maids and door / valet staff were super cheerful.
