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. Tried to get a room on the 2nd floor and avoid the ones in the basement. I stayed in the basement one and it was... More

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.
