Room and attention were great. Was travelling with family and enjoyed the university decor. The check in was fast and the room was as described. Well located near UNC and many places to dine in the area. Would recomend.

Spacious, clean room with king-size bed; swimming pool was unavailable due to repairs; coffee available 24/7 in lobby per guest information notebook. Within walking/easy driving distance of shops, restaurants, grocery and a walk-in medical clinic! Great value.

The ambiance of the hotel is the best. We visited over New Year and had a wonderful stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated, if a bit small. All of the people we met working at the hotel were very helpful. The location is perfect too, near the university and the city's best restaurants.

I can't say that the people were not warm and pleasant, or that the room wasn't clean. But the room I stayed in had furnishings and "art work" that seem to be from an era we could not identify. But it was definitely pre-1950. Everything about the room seemed frozen in time. Also strange to have a high rated hotel... More

I stayed under very stressful conditions that were accident related. My best friend/sister died, but her husband survived the accident. I was there visiting her husband. They allowed me to change the dates of my stay so I could get a cheaper rate on line and did not make me change rooms,. Then I extended my stay again at the... More

This was my first trip to NC and I had heard the people were nice but I did not expect them to be this nice! The hotel was a little hard to find at first though. From the moment we arrived I felt very welcomed. Everything was ready and the room was perfect. My favorite part of the hotel was... More

I stayed here as I had a workshop to attend at this hotel. Not somewhere I would recommend to others. The room I stayed in was clean - over looking the pool... which was closed with no water in it! The toilet took forever to refill, (probably at least a good 2 - 3 min to refill). I purchased the... More
