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. I looked thru the website and made a reservation. We LOVED it ! It was tucked away and calm and private... More

A great birthday weekend for 7 of us girls. We stayed in the DuBose house, which was beautifully decorated & the beds were very comfortable. The food was good and the staff pampered us. The grounds were beautiful for the fall weekend. What a great place to celebrate!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during a conference in July of 2013. All I can say is WOW! From check in through our all too brief stay, we felt like we were being pampered by the manager and staff. The rooms are great! The food is awesome! And the staff is sublime! Combined with all of the... More

The Rizzo Conference center is beautiful along with being situated close enough to the campus for convenience. I would highly recommend the hotel however, there is lack of organization and communication. Upon booking and arriving we were told that breakfast which is located in the DuBose mansion was complimentary. On Saturday morning when we had breakfast there was no charge... More

This was the perfect place to stay for a UNC college visit. Rooms were huge and well appointed. The grounds are gorgeous and perfect for a little exploring. Enjoyed the pool, as well. Pantries on each floor stocked with complimentary treats and drinks are a huge bonus. Kids loved it. Not a walk-to location but a few minutes drive to... More

Well priced, friendly staff, fun outdoor pool. Dubose house breakfast is fantastic. Free internet is a plus, snacks abound which is great for kids. We ordered room service and the food was great. Staff was accommodating and allowed us to check in early. Very pretty grounds.

My week at the Rizzo Conference Center was a wonderful experience. I had never heard of this place before, but they were offering training that I needed for my professional development and certification maintenance. The staff was friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, and there is a fast wireless internet connection. There is a mall and several shopping areas... More

The Rizzo Conference Center exceeded my expectations, which is not easy to do! They made the stay comfortable and calm, and the serene garden setting away from the hubbub of Franklin Street was lovely. The shuttle into downtown Chapel Hill was easy, convenient and free.
