My wife and I planned a trip to NYC for our 20th anniversary that was cancelled at the last minute due to weather, cancelled flights, etc. We decided to do an impromptu trip over to Chapel Hill for the night. I booked a room at the Franklin Hotel. I stay at nice hotels all over the world for work and this one ranks right up there. Right on Franklin St, great service and a very nice room. After dinner and a walk on campus we returned to the room to find a bottle of champaign on ice and a card signed by everyone working at the hotel.
Breakfast included is very nice. Only thing I would do different is not book the balcony room. It has a four-foot concrete wall so you can't see Franklin Street if you are sitting at the table. Minor point but I always try to provide a balanced report. Great place with great service. Planning our next trip already.
