People who come to Chapel Hill will often be told to stay at the Carolina Inn. However, the Franklin is a more modern hotel right on Franklin Street (the main shopping and eating area) and you can still walk to campus. Breakfast (cooked to order) is included; there are nice sitting areas and bar; there is a gym and business center. And the rooms are very nice. It's my "go to" now.
