This hotel is hard to rate. There were some things, such as the gym, the rooms and the pool that were excellent. The staff is great. The overall ambiance is very nice. comfortable furniture, great common areas. The breakfast buffet was not up to par. The eggs were cold, breakfast meet was greasy and the coffee was weak.
My husband and I stayed at The Rizzo Center for a quick getaway recently and we were both incredibly impressed with the property. From the minute we checked in to the minute we drove away, everything was lovely. In all honesty, the Rizzo center felt more like an upscale resort than a hotel that serves as the main lodging/office for the UNC MBA program. The pool was perfect, having plentiful pool towels were a plus, the fridges stocked withcomplimentary ice cream, sodas, juice and popcorn was a special treat and the breakfast buffet was all that you could ask for-again, complimentary. The rooms were updated, large and very comfortable. I am a travel advisor and will not hestitate to recommend the Rizzo center to clients and plan to book another stay for my family in the near future!…
Beautiful hotel, friendly staff and impeccably clean! The grounds and pool were well maintained. The floors had a pantry stocked with coffee, ice cream treats, soda and popcorn. There was also free laundry on the floor. Our family was visiting colleges so the free morning breakfast was an added bonus! Overall, it was a great stay and would definitely recommend it!
In town for work and a little relaxing. Enjoyed my time at the pool this time. The staff is always friendly and respectful, rooms always clean and comfortable and breakfast is always on point with friendly and helpful staff.
Rizzo provided a very enjoyable stay! Everything was clean throughout the hotel. There is a common area that had drinks, ice cream, coffee, ice, and washer/dryers on every floor. The breakfast was good with you normal hot items, again very clean. Parking was easy and the elevators were fast.
We were new to this property and really didn't know what to expect. This hotel completely surprised us with the level of service, the cleanliness, the Nest products in the bathroom, the wonderfully comfortable king sized bed, the fresh buffet breakfast...Everything delighted us. We will return, we love Chapel Hill!
This hotel was spacious, clean, secluded and beautiful. Was not sure what to expect but it definitley exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this hotel to any one visiiting the RDH area. Outstanding customer service as well!
We had a great one-night stay at the Rizzo this week. We used it as a base to visit local colleges and everything was perfect - staff was friendly, breakfast better than expected (including the freshest and best prepared fruit that I can remember having in a non-five star hotel), and great facilities in good condition. Our room (3rd floor double) was spotless and had good toiletries, towels, and bedding. Quiet at night. We enjoyed grabbing a drink and small cup of Ben and Jerry’s from the pantry. Overall the stay exceeded our expectations across the board. Highly recommend and great job to the team there.
I stay in the area a lot to visit family and this is the best place to stay. I know - I have tried them all. The pool and gym are fantastic, the free breakfast is wonderful and the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. And they provide free drinks and ice cream on each floor. You can't beat it.
With the exception of the AC motor/fan being so loud that it consistently woke me up through the night, the Rizzo Center is a great place to stay... but, when the primary service you're paying for is to sleep peacefully, this property completely fails.
