I had an enjoyable experience at this hotel and I would definitely visit again for a business trip. Check in and check out were efficient and quick. The rooms were clean and comfortable with all the amenities you needed. Loved the guest pantry! Food at the restaurant and also the conference was delicious.

They think of everything you might need here. It was beautiful, clean, well managed. The food was delicious and a great variety. The property is well maintained. There are multiple spaces for gathering and connecting. The gym and pool are amazing. There is an outside fire pit you have to check out. Great service!

Very nice in every respect. Beautiful grounds. Comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. My kids loved it -- particularly the open pantry with drinks and ice cream. The Rizzo Center is a cut above the typical three star hotel.

Stayed here for a conference. Would return at every opportunity. The food was delicious and nonstop. Conference facilities were first rate and the coordinators the best. Grounds are beautiful and the shuttle service was fast and convenient.

The Rizzo is a beautiful hotel and far exceeded our expectations, especially for the price we paid. Our room was spotless and modern as were the interior and exterior of the hotel. The grounds were well manicured and provided a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. This is the only place to stay while in the Chapel Hill/Raleigh area.

I was supposed to stay at Carolina Inn where my conference was, but it was booked, so this was the closest place I found. So glad I did! It was lovely. Great, clean room. Love the kitchenette on each floor with snacks. We enjoyed NOT being right next to the partying fraternity houses and instead being in a quiet stylish...

This campus style center was a pleasure to visit. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings make you feel like you are on a college campus. Clean and well designed rooms, some of the nicest I have ever stayed in. The guest pantries were a first for me! The overall experience felt special and unique!

The Rizzo Center is one of best accommodations I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. Its primary function is as a conference center, but even though casual travelers aren't the intended audience, it is a perfect location for anyone visiting the area. The atmosphere is exceedingly comfortable and relaxing. Unless there is a large conference going on, occupancy seems...
