Staff is fantastic! Hotel is so clean and well decorated. Guest pantry is a very nice touch. Hummus and pita in the sports bar is extremely good! Convenient to UNC. One exit away on I-40 is a great shopping mall. Also many restaurants close by. Starbucks, Firehouse Subs. You must also eat at Brixx which is within walking distance or... More

Rizzo exceeded my expectations in just about every way. The facilities are wonderful, the staff is very friendly, and the location is perfect. Would be nice if it was actually on UNC's campus, but the shuttle to downtown Chapel Hill more than makes up for it. The hotel has snack pantries throughout the halls - they were a wonderful touch...

This is a really well maintained facility and the staff is always super friendly. I have stayed here a handful of times for UNC related events and always find this to be a very nice place to stay. They also recently renovated there sports bar downstairs which I would argue was the only thing previously lacking.

I stayed here for four nights for training. The facility is great for business travel. Outstanding breakfast and lunch buffets and great options for breaks. They have healthy options and a freezer fill of ice cream. The dinner options in the bar aren't great but the service is. The friendly nature of the staff is amazing. You walk by and... More

Take a look at the view from my room. Construction noise literally shaking the room the entire time. Front desk refused to move me and did not offer any redress. This review is telling you that your guests are unhappy with your approach. .

It is true that the property is undergoing an expansion and it is very disappointing to hear that we weren't able to offer the great environment and hospitality that our guests always enjoy. The good news is that the noisiest portion of the project is over. There was some concrete removal that was required to be done prior to the... More

We recently stayed at the Rizzo for a UNC football weekend. The grounds are very nice, though we did not explore them as much as I would have liked due to time constraints. We were in McLean Hall which has a very nice lobby. Our room was in the lower level (basement) and was average. Given the pretax cost of... More

We wanted a place to celebrate our anniversary. We live in Cary and wanted to "get away" for the weekend. I looked at places I was familiar with on a hotel website and this came up as a suggestion.
