Genuinely loved this little getaway. Booked a Junior Suite for my wife's birthday (got a fantastic corner room - 201), and couldn't have asked for a more fun, relaxed and enjoyable stay. The staff were super genuine, attentive and best of all, made our over excited pup feel right at home. Was surreal staying in such a nice place that allowed us to bring out furry son. Thanks to Arman, Kristen and the rest of the front desk crew for organizing our stay, down to chilled processo on arrival, a late dinner reservation and breakfast in our room. Dinner downstairs at Il Palio is hands down the best Italian we've had in the US and worth an overnight trip on its own. Thanks!

First time at the Siena. Given it’s ranking class in Marriott hotels, we were expecting a little more. We typically stay at lower class Marriotts in that area and, frankly, we could not tell the difference. It was OK, but not what I expected in an Autograph Collection hotel

We stayed for one night at the Siena Hotel in Chapel Hill on October 18th and had a wonderful stay. The gentlemen greeting us at the front door and checking us in were delightful, the room was spacious, spotless and the beds were so comfortable. They also offer a complimentary shuttle service into town. We did not eat at their restaurant but it looked very popular and the glasses of wine we had at the bar were great. Best of all was the very reasonable nightly rate. We highly recommend it and would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed for one night on our drive back to NJ. Check-in was seamless and the service was great. The hotel is beautiful. The lobby, the fountain, the room, everything was intimate and inviting. We will definitely stay again.

Our family stayed at the Siena hotel while passing through the Raleigh area on our way home from vacation. Decided to give this autograph collection hotel a try instead of going with one of the larger chain hotels in the area. I’m glad we did! It is a quiet boutique hotel perfect for families. Large rooms, comfortable beds, spotlessly clean, large marble bathrooms, beautiful lobby and friendly staff. We stay at Marriott bonvoy category 7 and 8 hotels relatively frequently (Ritz-Carlton, Luxury Collection, W, Edition) and the rooms at the Siena are comparable (although no bathtubs). Actually the Siena was nicer than the hotel we had just left in Hilton Head. I’m convinced the only reason the Siena isn’t part of the luxury collection is because it’s a smaller hotel in a less busy area and lacks a pool. Definitely worth considering if you are passing through the area!
