This hotel is a great choice if you traveling north to NYC. We always stop here and it is dog friendly and they even have a dog menu. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms large. Staff are very friendly. We had dinner at their Palio restaurant and it was excellent. James and Kevin did a great job serving us. Delicious food sitting outside with our dog. They have parking for your car and close to chapel hill. There is a dog walk in the back of the hotel and some lovely wooded areas to walk your dog.

I stayed at The Siena Hotel in June 2021. It is an excellent hotel with friendly service. The ladies and Josh at the Front Desk were very helpful with check in and giving information about the University of North Carolina Campus. Bo, the shuttle driver, was also very helpful and drove me to the UNC campus (a 10-minute drive) and picked me up later to drive me back to the hotel. In fact, I would also like to mention Michelle in the front office who corresponded with me for a few months before I even arrived. My room was very clean and comfortable with a large, comfortable bed and a nice bathroom and shower. The air conditioner was very good. In summary, I had excellent stay at the Siena Hotel and hope to stay there again during my next visit to Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

We were visiting several friends who have relocated and retired in the Chapel Hill, Carrboro area. We decided to stay at this hotel since they are dog friendly and centrally located to where we needed to be. We requested a corner room which was nice and big with two views and juliet balconies. The bed was super comfortable and the shower in the bathroom is huge. Had everything we needed except a microwave and the hotel quickly provided once we asked. The staff were very personable and there was not daily cleaning unless requested. The hotel restaurant, Il Palio is amazing & delightful that we could have a cocktail without driving afterwards. The service in the hotel as well as the restaurant were personable, professional, & engaging. We highly recommend this hotel for your next stay.

We made a last minute reservation to stay one night while passing through. Hotel staff was friendly at check-in. The room appeared very clean and beds were comfortable after driving all day. Cold air-conditioning too. We appreciated having enough towels for all of us in the room. I would have liked a few bottles of water to use for coffee the next morning. It would have been nice if the restaurant was open a little later (or if there was some sort of room service option for late night). Overall, I would recommend this hotel and I’d stay again if in the area.

Anniversary trip & Sienna Hotel far exceeded Expectations. Staff Customer Service is exemplary & this extended from reception to restaurant. Kudos to owners and management for hiring such outstanding folks to represent your hotel. Pietro deserves a special mention for his extraordinary service with breakfast ( food is amazing ) as he spoiled my partner with the best service & food. James served us with dinner and also did an excellent job with service. The chef we didn’t personally meet but the food quality and flavors were spectacular & my partner is a SERIOUS foodie! The room was well apportioned and we were spoiled on all levels. Thank you Siena for your commitment to customer care & a beautiful anniversary experience. I would truly come to your area simply to visit this hotel.
