Great facility for bonding with cohorts & coworkers after a long day of prof development and a long night of drinking. Nice lobby, open areas for late night collaborative work and bonding with friends or coworkers. I visited often over two years during an MBA program at UNCCH-KF. While the rooms themselves were "hampton inn quality" I will always have... More

Dear Crazivan - Thank you for the kind remarks you made about Rizzo. I hope that you'll have the opportunity to return and experience our new guestroom product and many other amenities when our expansion is completed in October. At that time we'll also be renovating our existing guestrooms to bring them to the same standards as the new. Hope... More

The Rizzo Conference Center is on a beautiful piece of property. The rooms are nicely appointed and very spacious. The staff was professional and courteous. There are multiple buildings on this property which is located in a quiet residential area. Walking paths and gardens throughout. We would absolutely stay here in the future.

I think I really would have enjoyed this stay if the construction was complete. The hotel is generally peaceful and serene, with wonderful service by the desk staff. I had two issues with the stay. The first was that each morning (7am first morning, 6am second morning) the construction crew were moving vehicles right outside my window. One of these... More

I stay here 6-10 times per year, and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff is the best of any hotel I've ever stayed at. The center is being expanded right now, so there is adjacent construction and no pool. Once the center is complete, amenities will be even better. The DuBose house is on the property and a great historic... More

I stayed at the Rizzo Hotel this past weekend for a wedding. The rooms were extremely large, and the bedding and pillows were the most comfortable I've experienced in a hotel. The blackout curtains worked SO well that we slept through breakfast that is served in the historic DuBose house on property. The guest pantries have soda, snacks, and ice... More

I stayed at the Rizzo Conference Center, located in McClean Hall, for four nights in connection with a week-long course at the UNC - Kenan-Flagler Business School. The conference center is a remarkably short distance by taxi from the Raleigh-Durham (RDU) airport. We arrived in the late morning, and despite the 3PM check-in time, the front desk happily checked us... More

Stayed for 6 days on a training course . Beautiful surroundings and excellent facilities - especially the gym . Food is gods if not exceptional and the room was generally great - though the shower could be eratic . The location is someway out of town but they run an excellent shuttle bus

Stayed there for two nights during my recent visit to UNC Chapel Hill. The hotel actually belongs to the UNC Business School. Overall, the hotel is more like a conference center than an actual hotel.
