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. The breakfast was delicious with homemade bakery items and the evening appetizer with the bartenders was excellent. This is a must stay - enjoyed it more than the Carolina... More

The Siena Hotel does not overlook Lake Cuomo, but sits on a busy commercial-office stretch of Franklin street next to a gas station, which our room overlooked. The hotel’s ersatz Italian presentation is awkward, from the faux Roman frieze on the wall in the lobby to the “welcome to your villa” message on the room key card. The Siena had... More

We hadn't been to the Siena in a few years and were blown away by the beautiful renovation, inside and out. The rooms are spacious and tasteful. The restaurant is one of the best in the region. The service was over the top.

My husband and I have stayed at The Siena several times over the past 10 years. It is a convenient location on Franklin St. close to UNC and downtown. They offer a free shuttle service to most locations around Chapel Hill which is a very convenient feature. The hotel itself is 5 star with large, attractive rooms and very comfortable... More

I have had good luck with Autograph Collection properties and the Sienna was no exception. The decor is lovely, however, out of sync with Chapel Hill. Nice lobby and excellent restaurant. (it's not advertised but the full restaurant menu is avail as room service). We enjoyed delicious breakfasts every morning and several good dinners. We were in one of the... More

Hotel was perfect - accommodations top notch! Close to UNC, with complimentary shuttle and great restaurant recommendations. Bar and bartender made for excellent nightcap. Also convenient for next day visit to Duke.
