First, the interior of the rooms in terms of bedding etc. WERE TOP NOTCH. Good quality sheets, etc. The room itself however needed some repair. The entertainment center was missing hardware, the coat rack was missing coat hooks. Parts of something were laying on the vistors guide to the hotel. Bathroom leaked, some cracks in the sheetrock. Maybe I just got a bad room. The common areas of the hotel were still very nice but overall the place looked like it needed a good cleaning and updating. Lots of big overstuffed gold leaf furniture everywhere...the reviewer who said that this hotel had a "Vegasy" feel hit the nail on the head. It was not a bad hotel but if I paid the full published rates I would not have been very pleased. The hotel food services (bar, etc.) are very expensive, but you are within easy driving distance to a number of great restaurants and the Chapel Hill bus (which is free, safe, and very clean) stops outside and the hotel has a free shuttle to downtown.. I would not spend time hear to eat. There is no pool, no gym. Basically this is a very nice place to sleep. The business center was in an old hotel room. The bathroom to the business center was an old hotel bathroom with piece of PLYWOOD laying on top of the tub so you would not try to get in the tub while you were in the business center. Bizarre.
