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. 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!

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
