The staff upgraded our room before we arrived because I had said in our reservation that it was our anniversary. Beautiful large room with king size bed, two white leather chaise lounges and gorgeous bathroom. Only problem encountered was that our room was over the front area of hotel and at midnight a group from a wedding came in from... More

My son and I just spent two nights with 2 of our buddies here in this very nice non-standard Marriott property. Not much about it reminded me of Italy (it's located near a famous chicken and biscuit drive-thru!), but the lobby was comfortable, the rooms were large and boasted a nifty modern decor, the coffee was free in the morning,...

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

We went here to celebrate our anniversary and had another memorable experience. Everything was perfect from check-in through checkout the next morning. We booked the "date night special" and it is a fantastic package that included breakfast for two, a beautiful room. cocktails and an appetizer in the bar for two, and a $100.00 gift certificate to be used in...

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

Family of four stayed in room 225 for 2 nights for UNC Chapel Hill Orientation. Room was VERY large and beds very comfortable. FREE Wifi (although signal strength was not strong in our room) and clean/large bathroom. Unfortunately we did not really have time or opportunity to eat at hotel or use exercise room. 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
