First time staying here..... Normally stay at the Franklin Hotel while visiting kids on campus. Loved the rooms! Large and well decorated (not my taste). Bed was very comfortable. The Lobby bar had wonderful drinks and really nice bartenders. Heard great things about the Palio restaurant but didn't get a chance to eat there this time. Great staff!

The property is beautiful outside and in, and the staff is so helpful -- from opening the door every time you arrive or leave to welcoming you at the front desk. I just love the elegant decor, makes me feel like I'm in Italy. Restaurant is delicious, including at the bar for late night, but it is pricy. Quick car... More

This hotel is a real example of Southern hospitality. While it may be a bit dated, and a pool would have been welcome, the hotel staff more than compensated. They are expert at gracious hospitality and friendliness. Never tiring from smiling, greeting and showing genuine concern when things went wrong. My family stayed there for a friend's wedding for 5... More

We enjoyed a four-night stay and would definitely book here again the next time we are in the area. The rooms are nice and big and truly spotless with very comfy beds. The shower is amazing - excellent water pressure with four wall mounted body sprays in addition to a traditional shower head. Heaven! The staff was terrific. Everyone was... More

I stayed at the Siena only once before in 2004 and it has since been beautifully renovated. Staff service is top-notch - that famous southern hospitality I loved in college is right at home at the hotel. Our King Deluxe room was spacious, clean and beautiful. We took advantage of the complimentary shuttle to downtown Chapel Hill to revisit old... More

The Siena Hotel is an odd property. It is (allegedly) designed to evoke the pleasures of Italy, but aside from some unusual furniture, it's pretty much a standard upscale hotel. Think "Olive Garden" Italian meets Marriott. The theme doesn't really work, but The Siena is a nice place to stay. The rooms are large and all feature juliet balconies. It's... More

Now, if only they would close the experience loop by hiring staff with genuine desire to see guests happy. There was nothing to complain about in the hotel staff, but with the exception of a very young bellman (Zach?) the staff (all quite young) had a "put on the smile, do the job, move em along" attitude. Even the smile... More

Very nice hotel! You get a good bit for your money. Anywhere else, this hotel would cost $300 a night. Lovely bathrooms, very friendly staff and great restaurant! I stay here quite often when I am in town for business. This is my favorite hotel in Chapel Hill.

We just dropped off our son at UNC and stayed at The Siena Hotel - It was amazing! Hotel is clean with charming rooms and the staff was friendly and attentive.
